TO HAVE YOU ACTUALLY DO THE PLANNING ITSELF
Draft, but do these for sure:
These overlap with life management and time management books, but I set this up so that I could have a better reference system with which to design my own planning system. (I've done and redone these. There is no perfect system, so start with one that is highly tested and ready to go - and use it!)
First Things First, Stephen Covey. - Mission, legacy, what life is all about, getting what matters onto your schedule, principle centered living, mission statement workshop (including examples), Must read. The Franklin Covey Planner Notebook (software) - Use it directly or for structuring the day, week, month. Already set up for you as a workable system.
The Weekly Worksheet - Goals by role (so you don't forget any!), what you'll do to "sharpen the
saw" (physical, etc.) so you can insert that in the schedule, then a full week's schedule sheet for
appts/to dos (see format in Seven Habits book).
