Yesterday was my first day using the latest version of the Full Focus Planner. I sort of hate to admit it as a Hobonichi die-hard, but . . .
I kind of liked it.
There is a ton of space, and I was able to take 2 sets of meeting notes on the right hand side. This definitely helped prevent mind-wandering.
Will I switch forever? Probably not. Because while the FFP is fantastic for daily task management and organization, it doesn’t have much of a calendar. Their idea is to go digital with your main calendar, and then just have a broad landscape and daily zoomed-in view on paper.
That said . . . I might (MIGHT) try it. We will see! I will share my daily layout soon.
Random tip: The meditation app Headspace is offering free premium access for the rest of 2020 to U.S. healthcare providers working in public health care settings (assuming most hospitals?) — I tried the code and it worked! It is not just for physicians — their list includes everything from social worker to nurse to respiratory therapist.
- 7:30 AM work update call (we have childcare coverage 7:30 – 5p today)
- Probably go into work just to discuss a trial of telemedicine tomorrow (from home!) with our practice manager & division chief — ironically, I feel pressure to show my face AND pressure not to. Hmm.
- Random work task blitz (many small nagging tasks that need to be annihilated; I couldn’t do this without childcare)
- Residency Strategizing Meeting with 2 other faculty members
- 4:30 PM work update call
Oh, and I went to the grocery store yesterday to get groceries for the week. I HOPE they last the week. It was actually not as dire as I had heard (they pretty much had everything I wanted, or was able to make a reasonable sub). We are going through food so much faster with all of us home all day and minimal eating out (though we have gotten some takeout from local places and will continue to do so as long as we are allowed).
