BLP Ep #121: Planning-Aligned: Tranquility by Tuesday with Laura Vanderkam

November 21, 2022

Yes! It’s a BOBW/BLP mashup of sorts! I asked Laura if she would do a TBT (Tranquility By Tuesday)-themed episode during our retreat, and she said yes – so here it is!

I had noted that many of the TBT rules were planning-adjacent, and some were planning-centered. So I had her on to discuss! She goes through her own personal planning rituals and tools — including the planner I matched her up with in this episode.

You can check out TBT wherever you buy books – and it’s a fun, useful read! Would be perfect winter break/Q5 reading material to inspire you to think about goals worth setting in 2023. Highlighters / colored pens optional but encouraged!

I will be back next week with a listener tips / QA ep, and then a collection of planner reviews including a new release I am borderline obsessed with. AAAAND there are some exciting guests in the pipeline, too. Q5 is my favorite season for BLP (well, also Q1). Stay tuned!!!

    Are there any Black Friday deals on your favorites? I know, this may be acting as a spoiler request but the sales are pretty epic right now.

      Ooh good idea I’ll do a round up of sales I know of later this week!

    Yes! Using TBT as a ramp up to 2023 planning was my original intention. Then I realized there were some tweaks to what I was already doing that would be quick wins I could start now. Small adjustments for the win!! I loved this cross over / not cross over episode. 🙂
