I’ve never been great at short term planning. This year, I started using a tiered planning system and found it help reduce my anxiety. Here’s some food for thought as we head into the new year: Is there a way you can manage your time better?

The planning software I’m using is called Actions by Moleskine Studio, it’s a paid service and I signed up because I like the colours and simplicity. Out of the free options, I like Asana the best. It has a simple to-do list feature, and it’s also pretty customisable and good for working in teams.
