The Big Picture Planner: An Effective System for Getting Things Done

It's no secret that the Big Picture Planner is a simple and effective system for getting things done. Hear how it's helped Brittany of Brittany Chandler Photography: "This planner is so wonderful. With a part time job, photography business, busy blog and website, and miscellaneous duties as a Clickin Moms mentor, I need to be organized and stay on top of everything. This planner was the ticket. The blogger add-on was a must have for me as I curate blog post ideas for work, for my own blog, and for numerous photography blogs within the industry. I also love having one place for all of my ideas, as they used to be housed on my messy and unorganized iPhone, and it random notebooks that get lost. The weekly to-do pages are so important, as each week looks different for me, with different deadlines and responsibilities.

After deciding what pages I needed for my planner, I printed out 6 months worth on my home computer in 5.5x8.5 sized pages. I resized within the Print window instead of resizing in Photoshop. It worked perfectly. I added some ruled paper for my random note taking as well, hole-punched the pages, and it fits perfectly into a mini binder that I purchased from Target. I love this planner so much, and it's so nice having it this size so I can take it with me everywhere. It goes in my purse and comes with me to work, is on my desk when at my home computer, and sleeps on my nightstand in case a great, insomnia-inspired idea strikes."

The iPhone camera is an incredibly powerful tool. After learning a few basics, you can start practicing your own skills with what I like to call a “creative exercise régime.” First of all, l always hold my phone horizontally with two hands. I form a "C" with my left thumb and forefinger and tuck the phone into it so it rests on my hand with my middle finger holding it up along the back. Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.

This past March, my family and I took a road trip from Marietta, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina. The trip fell during the first few days of spring, and we all dreamed of warmer weather and a nice change of scenery! Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
