Different ways to do small projects planning

Today I would like to talk about different ways to do small projects planning by using LM Charts (Life Mapping Charts) and LM SPM (Life Mapping Small Projects Management Inserts). LM Charts are very powerful. In one of my old article, I have listed some ways how you can use it but that's not all. You can use the charts to do small projects planning too. Let me take a personal size weekly chart as an example - Write down all the events and small projects/to-dos under "My tasks"; Turn the chart and mark the hours of a day; Fill in the events and small projects/to-dos that...

My 2015 Planner Setup

I have been in my 2015 setup for almost a month and archived my 2014 planner book yesterday. In 2014, I have tried many different sizes from pocket, A6, Personal to Midori Standard. It's fun to explore different sizes and see if they fit. But when I have to archive them, it became a kind of pain because they are uneven. So I decided I have to stick to one size in 2015 which is personal size.  Other than the size, there are several changes of my 2015 planning too. First, I bought a Van der Speck Touch Me Standard in Jan with 30mm rings. It has soft and robust leather and functional...

Good day! As promised, I have an exciting news to announce - Life Mapping™ System is having the very first cooperation with another great design. Together we are launching a new time visualization tool that made specially for -- and only for -- the Life Mapping™ System. How did this happen and what is that?

“Stop Duplicating Your Schedule” in Life Mapping System

In this post I would like to share how I avoid "duplicating" when I am using Life Mapping Inserts. I will use LMI version 2 as an example. With LMI v2, you can have your month, week and day all in one glance. (For more information about LMI v2, please check here.) It can be bored and a waste of time if you write everything down in monthly calendar and then write again in weekly calendar and daily pages. Why you repeat everything again and again when you already have everything at one glance? The common answer I get is "I worried I will miss out something if I do not repeat them in every single...
