When I started Taming Your To Do List, I was worried that so many of the things floating around in my head (necessary things, different anxieties, ideal projects, etc) wouldn't translate to a good to-do list and just be a text-block of overwhelm- but in working through this guide, the Evergreen Team takes the mess of a mental load and breaks it down into approachable categories, and then breaks these down further into thematic and temporal lists- then all is given an appropriate and useful place within the Evergreen planner system. At the end of it, my entire 'braindump' page was migrated to and organized place and time!
This was a super helpful, concise, walk-through of the Evergreen system. How to leverage the design of the planner, including the Dutchdoor (my favourite feature!).
This was the first Evergreen product I tried, and it got me hooked! This easy-to-use book helps you get your entire mental load out of your brain and on to paper - then sort it into actions, goals and ideas. I still do a mini “braindump” exercise at the start of every week (using the Classic booklet), and I’ll go through the entire book again when I start to feel cluttered. Highly recommend if you are feeling overwhelmed by your to-do list!
If you're hesitant to jump into the ROOTED workbook, allow me to recommend its "little sister", Taming Your Todo List! It walks you through the chaos in your brain and helps you tease out where and how to start what is weighing on you.
Going through the exercises in the Taming Your To Do List PDF helped me take my planning skills to the next level! Not only did I gain a ton of clarity (instead of feeling like I was bouncing from task to task!), but I also learned some fun new skills (like how to use my dutch door tear offs) that helped to break me out of my comfort zone. I'm definitely going to be incorporating them into my planner rhythm!
“I've tried so many planners...”
I've tried many other planners, but this is the only one I've actually used consistently, week in and week out.
I have been looking for a planner system that works with my business and personal life and I finally found what I was imagining.
Paper planners have never worked well for me.
Everything I’ve tried in the past has seemed too structured and hasn’t worked well with the master calendar I keep in my phone. However, I decided to try this after listening to a few of the podcasts and experimenting with the team’s recommended time blocking activities. It has been a game changer.
I use the week layout at the start of every week to visualize the rhythm of each week and braindump my to-do list. Then I use the day spreads to plan out my day and find intentional time to get things done. I love that this planner has helped me get organized and get things done without feeling boxed into a certain layout or filling out every day. If I ever have a light week, I can even skip it without wasting pages!
I would highly recommend this product for anyone who needs to declutter their brain and stay functional during a busy season of life.
As a busy mom who keeps all the receipts and budgets, plans meals, and does school planning, I had been looking for a planner that I could fully customize. This is perfect and so pretty I don’t mind having it out on my counter!
I really appreciate how in depth you can go with each day and week, but not be overwhelmed.
I've kept a planner religiously for 10 years. I did bullet journaling for 2 years solid, but when the kids came I just couldn't do the layouts anymore.
I am LOVING the Evergreen because it meets you where you are. You can utilize it as much or as little as needed day by day.
It was designed by two women who are in completely different stages of life than I'm in right now. We each have different goals, motivations, and personalities.
But this planner makes me feel like it was literally designed for ME.
I have tried almost every planner ever made and the Evergreen Planner is the only one that has worked for me.
I have struggled with organization and planning, but my brain needs it. The planner along with the super helpful info on the blog had helped me have my most organized/productive year yet!
Your planners have helped me run not only my business side, working on my dissertation, but also help me run my house for my family so well.
Thank you for what you do!!
I'm a planner JUNKIE and I have been lovvvving this new system from the Evergreen Planner.
I use it daily, and it has kept me organized, on track, and motivated.
Best planner I've ever used—and I'm a real planner snob (ask anyone 🙊🙈)
What makes the Evergreen Planner different?
The Evergreen Planner was built from the ground up with these convictions in mind:
1. You actually DO have enough time to do everything you're called to. You just need a tool to help you clarify your priorities and then manage all the moving parts.
2. Time is too precious to waste feeling lost in your planner, anxiously trying to locate what actually matters. A good planner will launch you into confident action as soon as possible.
3. Our innovative dutch door layout empowers you to plan your day in context. Now you can prepare for what's urgent while still carving out space for what's important.
4. We each have beautifully different lives, and yet the same 24 hours in a day. You need a dynamic hub for your brain that can be infinitely personalized until it fits your life like a glove.
5. We exist to help you accomplish your time-management goals. Through our many resources, we're committed to walking alongside you on your deeply important journey to personal mastery.
