Welcome to the official debut of the Time & ToDo Planner.  This is the weekly planner designed for busy, creative professionals by one of the busiest of them all...a teacher.

Here, let me show you:

Map out your TIME on one side...

And your TO-DOs on the other side!
And your TO-DOs on the other side!

One Sunday night back in 2010, I picked up my notebook and started to draw. The new school year had just started, and I found myself suffering from that feeling of "too much to do and not enough time." So I started sketching out a planning template that would allow me to organize everything that was in my head into my notebook. With everything on two facing pages, I could see my weekly schedule, priorities, and to-dos at the same time. I wanted everything together, not spread out between screens, sticky notes, or different pieces of paper.

It was around this time that my journey into design and creation began. I wanted to learn the design skills I needed to bring my planner sketches to life.  So I signed up for a few classes on how to use Adobe Illustrator, then Photoshop, then InDesign and worked away on creating different planning tools after school and on weekends. 

In March of 2013, I decided I would share one of the weekly planners I had created on my teaching and coaching blog, thinking other teachers trying to juggle everything, may like to use it too. Turns out, lots of teachers found it helpful! Three years later The Peek at the Week post is still one of my most popular, and the weekly planner has been downloaded by 1,000's of educators.

I took this as a little sign that maybe I wasn't the only one trying to figure out the "too much to do, not enough time" feeling. Maybe I could make an upgraded version of the Peek at the Week planner, designed especially for teachers and other busy, creative professionals to help them manage their hectic weeks.

It was here that the Time & ToDo Planner really started to come to life. For the past nine months, I've been designing, tweaking, and testing....little by little, week by week.

After lots of drafts, I finally found a design to run with. A weekly layout that has helped me manage my time with my to-dos, providing a balance of flexibility with structure, and some style.

Now enter...

This Kickstarter campaign will support the first large scale production of the Time & ToDo Planner.

I've teamed up with a local printing company that's been in business for over 30 years. As a full service printer, I'll be able to oversee the process from start to finish and get production completed in a timely manner.

Timeline

Risks and challenges

I've given myself a good chunk of time to ensure production will be a success and you'll have your planner by July 2015, so you'll be set for the 2015-2016 Academic Year. The planners will be locally printed and produced, allowing me to closely manage production schedules, oversee quality and ultimately meet the target fulfillment date.

If setbacks do come up, you'll hear about them directly from me along with my plan for working through it.
