5 Ways to Make the Most of your Diary

‘What gets scheduled gets done” Our Workshops consultant Sue Glasser shares her top tips on using your diary, planner or calendar to take back control of your time.

Did you know that one of the top 3 new year resolutions is to GET MORE ORGANISED?

Using a diary or planner effectively will allow you to take back control of your time and ultimately help you get more organised. Below are a few tips on how to do just that!

  • Let’s start with some questions:

Do you purchase a diary each year and use it for a few weeks and then lose interest?

Do you have a planner and use it as a time keeper only?

Is your to do list turning into a “never get to do” list?

A diary or planner should not only be used to include your current and future appointments, assignments or project deadlines ( a time keeper) but it should also include all the tasks that need to be done in order to prepare for that appointment, assignment or project.

Ever heard the saying “Something you can do anytime – you will do no time? ”

Always set a deadline to achieve a task because WHENEVER will become NEVER.

Are you a list maker? The best way to ensure we get things done is by allocating our TO DO list into our diary or planner.

Remember, if you are feeling overwhelmed by how much you need to get done you will not do anything at all. Break things down into bite sized pieces. Every big job is only a lot of little jobs put together – so tackle them one task at a time.

  • 5 top tips on making the most of your diary or planner

1. What gets scheduled gets done. If you want to do something make sure it has been allocated a time in your calendar.

2. To do lists are just a lot of things you ” might “get to unless each task is scheduled into your diary.

3. Colour coding is your best time management tool. Colour code your “spinning plates” to easily distinguish what needs to be done and when in each area of your life. eg: Work – BLUE, Family – GREEN, Me Time – PINK, Goals – ORANGE

4. Plan, prioritise and schedule your tasks – Decide what needs to be done to achieve a task. This is your action plan. Decide which order they need to be done in and then  make sure each step is allocated into your diary. Break all jobs down into manageable amounts of focused time.

5. Multi tasking is a myth as it means you are doing many things reasonably well. This then makes us feel unaccomplished. Single tasking means you are focusing on one job at a time and completing it. How much better is that?

Introducing our Sweetest Collection Yet

Find beauty in the little things with the sweetest, unique hand-illustrated designs in our Sweet Collection. In a soft colour palette of blue, grey, peach and mustard, this gorgeous range features everyday notebooks, stationery and accessories to bring a little joy to your days.

Fall in love with the super sweet illustrations featuring the cutest cats and dogs, alongside all your favourite things, in beautiful textured designs.

We asked our Designer Katie to tell us more about the design process of this gorgeous collection…

What inspired you?
When designing our latest Sweet Collection, I really wanted to tap into the simplistic beauty and organic, imperfect textures found in nature and our everyday life.

Inspired by the little moments, I tried to develop graphics and little characters to celebrate life’s simple pleasures and joys – cosy living spaces, gardening, our furry pets and their unique and quirky features, camping, the outdoors or baking in the kitchen. There’s something so sweet and enchanting about these simplistic yet familiar images. I really wanted to capture that feeling of nostalgia surrounding life’s little moments – the ones we sometimes take for granted.

Many of us have our favourite cat or dog from childhood – or adulthood! – with funny little characteristics that make them so unique and lovable. I tried to represent these furry little friends of ours with the characters I created, keeping them all a little different, with their own individual quirks.

What I love is that everyone at kikki.K now has their favourite graphic they can relate to – whether that be the dogs or cats or the other lifestyle illustrations. There’s really something for everyone!

How did you illustrate the graphics?
To create the illustrations featured in this collection, I used a tablet to digitally draw each graphic. I chose to use watercolour effects and digital brush strokes in order to capture the soft lines and imperfect nature of our everyday lives. Using a sweet colour palette of mostly blue, grey, peach and mustard, the graphics – when combined with creamy textured backgrounds – were designed to keep the end result as natural and hand-drawn as possible.

What’s your favourite piece?
When it comes to my favourite product in this range, it’s a difficult choice – I love them all! But it is hard to look past the porcelain cat and dog figures. Whether you buy them as a pair or separately, their lovable little characteristics give them so much personality – perfect for adding a little cuteness to your home or office. Their sweet little faces are so adorable – it’s impossible not to smile when you look at them.
