Suggestion for Recurring Routines in Your Planner

There might be some things you do daily, or frequently, that you just don’t want to rewrite again and again.

Here is a small idea that you might find useful for those times -

Every Monday-Friday morning, I have routine business tasks that - even though I already know I will be doing these - I like to block out that time in my planner. So, I have assigned a code to that first morning routine, in this case it’s “AM-1.”

I have second routine batch of tasks to do a bit later. So that code is AM-2.

Instead of rewriting anything else, I just scribble the short name into the timeslot.

I also have code-nicknames assigned to various schedules and routines throughout the week, whether they are weekly or some other random recurrence.  Such as “Fri-house” would be some home chores I (intend to!) do early every Friday morning.

This way, if you’d like to write or print out just one detailed list for each routine and give it a name, you won’t have to rewrite it in your planner on each day.

I hope this is helpful to you! Happy planning : )
