I thought about my relationship with time managment. For the last couple of years I've been struggling with making my schedule realistic, and accepting the fact I can't finish a month volume of work in a week (even If I really really tried) and not feeling guilty about it. I'm trying let myself just do nothing on a regular basis because I know that is exactly what will help me to be more effective and actually enjoy my job (which I love). So this became the idea of the planner: plan less, don't stress over your to do list, have enough time for sleep, enjoy your life, avoid death at your cubicle desk.​​​​​​​
