When I first started using the Hobonichi, all of that daily space was a bit baffling to me. Was I supposed to write a list every day, and check things off? Record memories? Attempt to be artistic? After 2 years of experimentation, my daily pages now look like this (yes, real pages):
- AM routine (up top)
- Daily plan (on the left; often I have checkboxes for each patient on an outpt day) including any fixed appointments or meetings
- Dual to-do lists on the right (selected from weekly list)
- Eating record on bottom left (habit I picked up after I transitioned to paleo that I like -- kind of forces me to think twice before mindlessly grabbing something and makes choices more intentional)
- Random notes & memories on bottom right
I create the dividing lines with a mildliner and write with a Uniball Jetstream 3-color which conveniently came with the planner.
Sooooo . . .for better or for worse (I realize this post is really letting my organizing/planner freak flag fly), this is my own personal Docket or Designer or whatever you want to call it. I am sure there will be more amendments to its structure as life evolves, but this is the early 2016 edition!
A&C's school had a snow day today (think snow machine and 70 degree temps). Mr. C's first experience with the cold white stuff -- and likely his last until next year!
