I am so excited about 2016. I really am.
I’ve got so much planned, so much on my mind, and so much in the works, that I don’t even know what to do with myself.
So I did what many procrastinators do when overwhelmed with the thought of beginning something great: I did something else.
I created a calendar.
And the calendar morphed into me designing my own planner.
And the planner morphed into me creating a goal-setting worksheet.
And the goal-setting worksheet morphed into me finishing the Live Focused Workbook that I began last year.
It’s finished. And I’m ready to begin.
Here’s the skinny. . .

Sometimes, all we need to do is write things down, and we start to feel as though we have a better handle on things.
Or, if you really want to rock it this year, check out our entire Live Focused Planner and Workbook.
It’s 50+ pages, and it totally rocks.
Actually, it contains everything I need to stay organized as a creative entrepreneur and writer.
- Cover sheet and Dividers for each section
- The Plan: Goals & Dreams — short-term and long-term goal setting with spaces to check in and edit, revise, or re-focus as necessary
- 2016 Calendars — January through December with space to use as an editorial calendar, to-do calendar, or anything you need
- 2016, 2017, 2018 At-A-Glance Calendars — perfect to use while planning and looking ahead
- 2016 Important Dates — holidays well-known and little-known to help in planning along with a blank page to write in your own
- Monthly Work Plan sheet — I love this sheet because it provides space to write ‘Must Do’ and ‘Want to Do’ and open spaces for jotting down notes and writing down ideas
- Posts & Scheduling sheet — spaces to write down post titles and to keep track of shares across social platforms
- 2016 Live Focused Workbook — January through December Live Focused workbook pages to help give your days a purpose and to help us all stay intentional and conscious as we work and play.
- Family & Notes space — space to clip family papers and information and/or notes as you need them
Make this work for YOU!
Here’s what I do.
I grab a 3-ring binder with dividers and plastic folders, and I include:
- Cover Sheet in the clear front pocket
- Contents Divider and/or Contents Sheet (customize for your needs)
- The Plan Divider
- The Plan: Goals & Dreams (print double-sided)
- Calendar Divider • Important Dates (print double-sided)
- 2016, 2017, 2018 at-a-glance (print double-sided)
- All Awesome Divider — Because my work isn’t work; I look at it as though it’s all awesome.
- Monthly Work Plan (page printed on front of Posts & Scheduling Sheet)
- Posts & Scheduling Sheet (I don’t post every, single day, but if I did, I’d use one of these every month; for me, I use one every other month, and it works.)
- Monthly Calendar (Repeat this pattern for the year: Work Plan on back of Posts & Scheduling, followed by monthly calendar!)
- Workbook Divider
- Live Focused Workbook (print on single pages from January through December)
- Family Divider
- Notes Divider
In order to have the pages facing the way that works best for me, I adjust print settings of double-sided pages as pictured above.
Who wants to begin the year with a bit of a focus and a whole lot of awesome?
