June Right Brain Planner™ Guide & Pages

Coming and going matter far more than what happens in the middle. … We mistakenly spend most of our time thinking about, working on and measuring the in-between parts, imagining that this is the meat of it, the important work. -Seth Godin

✔ Statistically 80% of our living is this messy middle. It is not breaking news; it consists of the trivial and mundane activities that are certainly necessary — but rarely deemed extraordinary or memorable.

Within these moments we often feel behind in our progress — cycling through comparisons of our messy middle with someone else’s grand finale.

✔ The other 20% of our living consists of what is memorable and meaningful — with outcomes that affect an overall change as well as the quality of our lives with regard to our truest desires.

These moments of clarity and accomplishment are the direct result of our decisions to establish {name} our priorities and honor our boundaries.

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way — things I had no words for. -Georgia O’Keeffe

Creative planning is a uniquely individualized practice, a practice that develops over time as you discover what “feels” best and is most appealing and useful for you.

  • To see examples of creative planning pages, you are cordially invited to join the Creative Planning Lab on Facebook. 

The annual kit is designed to be a stand-alone creative planner that can be bound -or- incorporated into a binder with the monthly pages.

The concept of a Right Brain Planner™ is to experiment with determining what works best for you + allow time and attentiveness for:

  1. 10-15 minutes daily for journal-planning
  2. noticing personal actions and habits + how hours are spent
  3. being intentional about aligning actions and habits with goals {wishes and want-to’s}
  4. considering journal-planning as an experiment; trying new techniques each week
  5. incorporating creative expression as a means of documenting personal progress

How that is accomplished is as varied as people who utilize creative planning {graphic organizers, art journaling, visual journals, altered books, etc.}

Right brain planning is not as much as about planning as it is about allowing one’s life to become like art on a proverbial canvas. To observe and utilize the time for living out loudliving free — even in the midst of the unknown.

Right brain planning is about creatively documenting your story as you live it — and how you hope and wish and dream of living it.

The official beginning of Right Brain Planner™ was in 2007 when I began to document my “collage planning” process. The first planning pages were offered in 2012.

This site and the planning pages have continued to develop alongside my own creative journal-planning practice evolution, focused on incorporating flexibility and a gentle, personal accountability as I adapt and life free within the realities of living with multiple sclerosis.

2016 planner notesScheduling time each week to be still {for minutes} at a time, to pause and ponder challenging details of daily minutia and the dreams whispering {sometimes screaming} within.

Week 32 spreadMy weekly plans begin with a week-at-a-glance template; I add my “to-do & done lists” + color + collage elements as a point of noticing and noting my dailies, desires and dreams.

Here are posts to my art blog with ideas and examples of gluebooking {collage} and free-will art, which I consider to be the foundation my own right brain planning. I also host a private group on Facebook.

Right Brain Planner™ Annual Planner Kits and monthly page sets are elements of an ever-evolving system designed to support a creative planning practice.
