Inside Look of Balance Planner

  • Preparation :

    “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”

     ―Abraham Lincoln

    Success is fundamentally linked with solid preparation, the two are almost always found together. Sports, business, school, even marriages, rely heavily on the quality of time spent in preparation. Anyone striving to balance their life must believe in the importance of preparation.

  • Priorities :

    “Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.” 

    ― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    It is key to create a life based around what is most important. Priorities are manifested in actions. 

  • Consistency :

    “Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying basic fundamentals.” 

    ― E. James Rohn

    Creating anything worthwhile is the result of doing something over and over again, day after day. This is truly no mystery. 

  • Accountability :

    “When performance is measured, performance improves. When performance is measured and reported back, the rate of improvement accelerates.”

     ―Pearson’s Law

    Reflection is what allows one to make changes and press forward on an improved path. A life lived without any pause for review is a life lived beneath potential.

  • The Weekly Planning Session:

    The backbone of this system is setting time aside for weekly planning. This is most effectively done on Sundays and can take as much time as is needed. It is a time to sit down and reflect on the past week, check in on your goals and tasks, then look forward to the next. The Balance Weekly Planning System is designed to work from left to right and from top to bottom. A week consisting of two pages. The busiest of lives can be balanced with weekly time set aside in reflection, gratitude, and thoughtful planning. 

  • The Daily Plan Review:

    It does not make much sense to spend time in a weekly planning session if one does not arise in the morning and go over his or her plan and goals for the day. This is important to refresh the mind, remember the schedule and get on track for the day. 

  • Work: 

    Nothing was achieved by planning alone, but with the companionship of hard work and mindfulness.
