Part 6: Learning as I go…
After starting to add appointments and such to the pages, I realized that I was duplicating a lot of work. While some duplicating is good for me because it cements certain things in my mind, too much of it is a waste of time and energy.
I took a look at this page on Fish’s blog: Avoiding Duplications and studied how she used her various pages to avoid duplication of work and yet not lose stuff.
In light of this new information, I went back and printed all the monthly sheets through June of 2016 and removed my 2015 yearly calendar from my Filofax.
