Weekly Wishes #3 – Staying On Top Of My Planning

It’s the beginning of a new week and that means it’s time for Weekly Wishes again! These are some of my favorite posts to write and I want to thank you all for the support I received on the last one – it really made my heart swell to read your encouraging words! In case you’re new to the party: Weekly Wishes is a link-up by the lovely Melyssa from the super inspiring blog The Nectar Collective and it’s all about setting goals for yourself for the upcoming week and then encouraging everybody else to achieve theirs. It’s the perfect way to set yourself up for a positive and fulfilling week!

This week will be very busy for me. I’ve got an exam coming up that I’m preparing for as if there’s no tomorrow, but at the same time I also have a lot of things to do to prepare my upcoming move to Norway. Not to mention feeding my slight obsession with blogging! My goal is therefore to not lose my head – or nerves – this week.

And just how am I going to achieve that? Simple, by staying on top of my planning. I like to think that I’m a pretty organized person to begin with, but this week I will try to focus on it even more. I want to make a list every night of all the things I need to do the next day – by hand. While I’m very attached to my phone, I believe there is some value by actually writing things down, so that’s going to be my challenge.

I know that it’s not exactly a fancy or exciting goal, but if it’s going to help me manage my time and not make me feel like I’m drowning in a sea of obligations, then it will have done its job.

What is your goal for this week?

  1. Wow, I'd never heard of this idea before. It might be something that I jump on the bandwagon with!

    Good luck with your exam :)


  2. I also hate using my phone to plan things as I can just hit snooze on any alerts and completely forget them. If they're written down then they are in front of me all the time and much less likely to be ignored. I remember having about 8 to do lists at uni - 1 for each class and I used a spreadsheet as a timetable to accompany them so I could mark out my timing. Lol, if only I still had that discipline.

    Best of luck with your exam and all the planning. Sending positive vibes for you!

  3. Lists are amazing for staying on task and there is nothing as satisfying as drawing a line through something you managed to check off the list! Keep going and you'll get it all done before Norway, and good luck on the exam!

  4. I'm totally a list person! I can't use my phone to organize at all.

  5. If something isn't right in front of me, I forget about it. That why I bought myself a lovely paper planner, but it has to be in sight, or I forget what I wrote in it.'
    Good luck with you exams en with the move! Just stay focused and plan away! You're going to rock it!! :)


  6. Good luck with your test and getting everything together! You can do it! :)


  7. Good luck with your test! You got this! I'm sure you'll do a great job. Time management is such an important thing; something that I need to work on too. I end up spending a lot of time online instead of doing the things I need to do (like right now I should get out of my PJs haha).

  8. Good luck Melanie! It might not be an exciting goal as you say but it sounds like a very important one.

  9. Luck! I love organising. Not that I always stick to it, but I love to do it! xx
