Weekly Challenge #56

This is the week I start to really think about the upcoming year.

By now I believe you know I am a planner by nature and necessity.

It is a tradition of mine to sit down over the long Thanksgiving weekend/holiday with a mug of tea, the new year's calendar, colored sharpies, and to put pen to paper.

I capture the important dates (i.e., friends and family birthday and anniversary dates) and make my personal care appointments (haircuts and color, facials, brows, etc.) for the full year.

I challenge you to get your 2009 calendars this week while you are out and about if you have not already done so. The last thing you're going to want to do is wait until late December or January and not be able to choose from a full selection. If you wait, you might be forced to get a calendar or appointment book you're not too happy with.

In case you are wondering, I use an electronic PDA and a paper calendar. The paper calendar hangs in my kitchen on a cork board with the visual reminders for all things personal. The PDA is a combo of both professional and personal. Overkill? Quite possibly but it is a system that works for me.

Happy calendering y'all.

Peace and Love Peeps.
