Future Planning Papers

Since I’ve gotten away from the weekly and daily planner inserts, I’ve been trying to figure out a way to mark down future/day-specific To Do’s without them getting lost in my brain dump notebook.

The idea came to me at work. With the budget year coming to a close, I was making myself some notes about things that needed to be down on specific days once the new budget year opened up.

All I’m doing is taking scratch paper, dating it, and writing the day-specific tasks on it.

But, Cori, why not just use Day on 1 Page (DO1P) inserts? Or other preprinted inserts?

If you have a traditional style planner, go for it! But I’m using the Bullet Journal method right now, and this method doesn’t allow for easy future planning. (Post written before Ryder Carroll came out with his new video.) This is a major complaint I’ve seen on the Bullet Journaling Facebook groups.

This is working for me. I don’t have a piece of paper for every day, just the days where I know I’m going to have day-specific tasks. When I do my daily bullet journal set up, I make sure to add the tasks from the paper. Once they are added to my list, I recycle the scratch paper.
