Design Your Life #daydesigner

Do you find that your desk/home office looks like this?
Are you finding yourself struggling to get things done throughout the day? Are your to-do lists, dr. appts, meetings, carpool days getting all jumbled up and mixed up? Are you beginning to feel like you are missing out on those little, important things in life?
"Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things." - Robert Brault
I stumbled across something earlier this spring that I think will help you out if your struggling to keep up with all of the “to-do’s” of daily life. {I know it’s going to help ME!!}  I think you’ll especially love it if you are a blogger, a TpT seller, or have any other sort of business.  But, this isn’t just for entrepreneurs – this is equally amazing for everyone – yes, that means moms and teachers too!!
I know you’ll love it because….
A well designed day is a well designed life…

Well, who is Whitney English??
Whitney is the creative genius behind the Day Designer.  She designed the Day Designer to help people focus on the most important things in life.  She believes these things are: 
  • The things that make your heart sing (your passions)
  • The things that you are great at (your powers)
  • The things that are non-negotiable (your principles)
  • The light that you were meant to share with the world (your purpose)
Doesn’t that list make you just want to go and get one for yourself? Don’t you feel empowered just reading it?  But wait, there’s more…
The Day Designer ultimately is here to help you work on your big picture, your plan, and your vision, by helping to keep you aligned and focused on each day.
I’ve only had my Day Designer for about a week now, but I am seriously obsessed.  I don’t get everything done on my to-do list, but I love how I can write down my top 3 and really focus on getting those three things done.  I can continually add to the longer to-do list as well (as teachers and moms we know that our to-do list is never ending!!) I still use my Google calendar on my phone -- I have 4 calendars to keep track of between my girls, my husband, and myself – but this lets my plan MY day.  I feel in CONTROL of what I need to get done and what I want to get done.

I also love the 4 boxes at the top of the page where I can write what’s due, what is on the menu for dinner, how much I’ve spent (this is REALLY helpful for me since I tend to overspend..), and what NOT to forget.
IMG_0397
Each page has inspiring quotes at the top, and a spot at the bottom for my daily gratitude.  I love that it gives me a space to reflect on one my many blessings of the day.

The front of the Day Designer is full of worksheets to help business owners define their vision, their goals (business & personal), and their brand. They are very detailed, and allow you to really harness your vision into something realistic for the year ahead.  If you are a blogger or other small business owner, you will especially love these pages!

Are you thinking you want one of these for yourself?  I know you do! This one is a GAME CHANGER.  Well, I have good news and bad news….the bad news is these bad boys sell out rapid fire fast!  Whitney makes a limited number of them because she is still a rather small company.  The August 2014 edition is all.sold.out.  Sad. 
But, here’s the good news – she is launching a BRAND NEW collection TOMORROW!!  I follow her on instagram, and she’s given us some sneak peeks … and boy are they cute! You are going to have to follow her @thedaydesigner to see the sneak peeks tonight :)  These new editions are a pre-order and will have a start day of January 2015.
Don’t want to wait until January to start designing your day?  Guess what….. see this?

  2. I love all the boxes at the top! Seems to have a lot of writing space - I tend to run out of room in my other planners :0) Thanks for sharing her talent!

  3. I would love to use this. I am a blogger and I sell on TpT. This would help with both of those. My daughter is a senior this year and has a busy schedule. So this planner would help me keep track of her things too.

  5. When going back to school, it's easy to get overwhelmed and feel swamped with to-dos. Add a soon-to-be three-year-old, his school, activities, and birthday that's coming up, and things can get down right hectic. I like to be organized, focused, and feel in control but believe it or not, I haven't tried out a day planner since my days at college. I think this is just what I need to get my family's activities during this busy time (and throughout the rest of the year) on track!

  6. Changing schools, getting accustomed to the ins and outs, while keeping up with my daughter's activities makes this a must for me. I'm am so sad that it is sold out. :(

  15. Wow! This planner looks like just what I need to get and stay organized! I am a teacher and a busy mom of 3 boys and feel like I am "all over the place!" I know electronic gadgets are the sign of the times but I just can't get used to using a digital calendar. I need a paper copy - must be the hands-on, kinesthetic learner in me!

  50. HELP a mama and a high school teacher out! Between advising three student publications, teaching one intro level journalism class, and two College Prep English classes, doing my child's elementary school yearbook and handling the day to day living with a kid who has lessons and wants to have clean laundry and food, my days are full. I need help. The day designer is not in my budget right now because my pennies go toward supplies for my classroom on top of day to day expenses. This teacher would love such a surprise and I think it could make my scheduling a bit less stressful.

  53. I need help organizing my life!! I work full time as a family developmental specialist for a mental health organization and within a week I was accepted into a Masters in Business program, became head cheer coach at a high school, and got engaged!! This all happened at the end of July and I have been living on sticky notes and a sheet of paper split into four parts with a daily todo for each section! I need a tool to help me organize my life and I researched planners and believe the day designer is the answer to my prayers!

  67. Just spent the past 3 hours looking and reviewing planners...and found your blog post. I think this might be the one....but didn't want to wait and decided to order it, and alas, it is not available to order. Tried her etsy shop. Anyway....when one is ready to get organized (pulled together misc notebooks, sticky notes, calendars...one is just READY. Well, loved your blog post. Maybe I might win one in the meantime?
