Show Notes

Do you want to increase your chances of meeting your goals by 42%? Write it down! 

What does your 2022 plan look like? Do you even have a written plan?

Whether you are a personal or business brand, we all need a plan. 

This ‘plan’ is specifically designed for not just the year -  it is your plan for each month, week, day, and hour.

It needs to be in writing.

A plan is on a real piece of paper, using a pen or pencil, one that you love.

The paper is part of a notebook you open up each day and write in like it’s your job (because it is).

There is an art and science of keeping a notebook, journal, planner. In this episode, I talk about my method to my madness of keeping a daily notebook, my past year in review, and how I am planning for 2022.

What does your planner look like? Is it digital or physical?
