Finding your track & Keeping on it! - Filofax Friday - Week 3

You know what this time of the week means don't you lol! Of course you do, that is why you are here after all. It's Filofax Friday!! whoop whooop!

So after the crazy, long, indepth video, topic and homework of last week on Time Management, this week is going to be a little easier. This week I am talking about one of the most requested topics and that is staying on track with your planner and organisation. Now I also wanted to cover why you would not be staying on track and that is probably because you haven't made it part of your routine or daily life yet. You just haven't habitualised using your planner. That or it just isn't working for you, because if it was working you would be using it. Wouldn't you? Watch the video and be realistic and ask yourself that.

Again this week I really do encourage you to complete the homework set below. It is just as important to re-evaluate ourselves and what we are doing as much as it is important to actually do it because otherwise how do we know that we are on the right track?

Again this week there is home for you to complete if you would like to do so. Remember it is not compulosry, no one will know if you have done it or not. I am just setting prompts / tasks for you to help and motivate you in this series. Pick and choose each week whether you would like to do the homework or not it is entirely up to you! If you ever need to ask or clarify anything with me please do get in touch through any of the social media platforms. Sometimes it takes a while but I do reply to each and every message that is left for me.

1. Re-evaluate your planner and see how and if it is in fact working for you. Do you like the way you are using your planner? Does it fit in with your life? Are you able to record and track everything you want to? If it is not working for you then change it. Research inserts and planner set ups and find ones for you (I will do a video on these topics later on in the series!)
Be honest with yourself!

2. Try and write stuff down and tick stuff off. What have you done this month? What have you accomplished? If you are a journaller then journal about this and the feeling.

3. Look at your goals, chunk stuff up and make them smaller if they are overwhelming you.

This week's download contains motivation quotes that you can put into your filofaxes in both A5 and pesonal sizes. Instructions on how to print etc are included in the download. You will need software that can 'unzip' the folder to release the files as both pdf and jpeg. To download the files for this week please click here. Please note that the inserts that I am offering as freebies as part of this series are different to the ones that I sell, so if you have already purchased a set of my inserts these are in addition for you. If you haven't purchased any of my inserts and would like to or just have a nose at them you can view them in my Etsy shop here

Thank you to everyone who participated in the giveaway for the filofax and associated goodies. If you missed the drawing and results here it is...

Next week we will look at Visual Motivation!

Thank you for watching / reading folks and enjoy your planning.

Remember your planner will only work for you and help keep you organised and on track if you use it. 

As a side note, I also vlogged this week and that vlog contains info / I talk about the making of Filofax Friday. So if you are interested you can check that out here...


  1. I like the idea of making your goals smaller. I constantly readjust things so that they work better for me.

    1. I think you have to keep looking at them and evolving them as you evolve x
