A Procrastinator’s Simple Planning Method

image

Hello All:

I am a self identified disorganized procrastinating college student. For years I have struggled to maintain a planner and jot things down in a timely and efficient fashion. I have purchased countless calendars, planners, and apps with a willful intent to stay faithful to these methods of organizing the craziness that is life. Um yea, to no avail. 

Here is what I intuitively discovered over many years of trial and error. The power of 3 is real. There is something about the number 3, its simple and doable. One night while in bed I thought to my-overwhelmed-overtaxed-self “I will transfer three things from my “mental to-do list” to an index card and when I am done with the list I will throw it away”.

This idea has blossomed into the more eco-friendly method of writing three things on the front and three on the back. Yes, at the end I still dis*card* my index. You see what I did there? ;-)

I believe this index card/3 to do items system has proven effective for THREE reasons: (and the puns keep on rollin’ but no worries that’s the last one)

1. It forces me to prioritize in a tangible way

-Because only three things get to make it on the card, I am forced to figure out the most important tasks I need done each day. I am also not overwhelmed by a never ending to-do list that only motivates me to stall proactive behavior further. 

2. It is easy to amend to-do items 

-This method is flexible! For those creative and anti-confinement folks like myself, you will discover freedom in not having to be constricted to boxes, dates, and times. Just jot!

3. It’s SIMPLE

-This method is cheap, easy, and super compact. For those who don’t carry bags, simply slip your index card into your wallet!

-Who do those portable device apps and huge planners really work for anyways? We are taking it back to the basics right here!

-Oh and you gotta love the psychologically rewarding aspect of throwing away the index card when all to-do items have been accomplished. For fellow procrastinators it’s like getting your “feeling accomplished v-card” taken *romantic sigh*

When I say be creative, I don’t mean that you should all go and become great painters and great poets. I simply mean let your life be a painting, let your life be a poem.

Grand jury indicts man in Jordan Davis shooting on first degree murder; faces life in prisonDecember 16, 2012
A Florida grand jury has indicted a man on a first-degree murder charge in the death of a teenager following an argument over loud music coming from the teen’s car.
The Florida Times-Union reports officials in the state attorney’s office said Thursday they won’t be seeking the death penalty against 46-year-old Michael David Dunn. He was initially charged with second-degree murder.
Dunn is accused of the Nov. 23 shooting death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis.
Officials say Dunn parked next to the vehicle where Davis was sitting with three other teens. Dunn complained about the loud music and they stared arguing. Dunn told police he thought he saw a gun and fired eight or nine shots into the vehicle.
Grand jurors also added three counts of attempted murder.

powerful injustice. SICKENING

I hate war, and I hate having to struggle. I honestly do because I wish I had been born into a world where it was unnecessary. This context of struggle and being a warrior and being a struggler has been forced on me by oppression. Otherwise I would be a sculptor, or a gardener, carpenter - You know, I would be free to be so much more… I guess part of me or a part of who I am, a part of what I do is being a warrior - a reluctant warrior, a reluctant struggler. But I do it, because I’m committed to life.

Origins of the Afro Comb opens today at the Fitz and at the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. Here is the first case in the exhibition - two combs, one made of bone decorated with bulls horns over 5,000 years old and the other a modern ‘Black Fist’ comb. The parallels between the modern and ancient comb inspired the exhibition.

Here’s your black history moment. Happy 4th!
