BLP Ep #198: Using ClickUp to Organize it All with Jade Boyd

May 13, 2024

In today’s episode, I share some recent planning pivots, and then business and production coach Jade Boyd joins her to talk all things ClickUp — in her opinion, one digital platform that can be used to organize it all. Jade also shares her love of paper as daily planning tool, the intimidation factor with digital organizing solutions, and the value of organizing work and life in one system.

    20 minute Sunday tidy check in… I went through my jewelry box, matched up earrings, put backs on them, and tallied the number that need replacement backs. I put the broken, mismatched jewelry (I lose earrings so, so regularly, I should never spend more than £10 on a pair) in a tiny ziploc, and will take it to the local craft centre, which can use it for upcycling.

      That sounds so satisfying!

      I love it Coree!! I did nothing. It was mother’s day and I was unmotivated. You can see why I have made such great progress on this (or not!!!!!)

    Thanks for this episode, and I would love to see some pictures as to how you’re using the Erin Condren layout you mention on this episode. It’s funny, since this year I use a Hobonichi Cousin planner for the first line and I made some dividing lines myself at hours that I don’t use (after 10 PM basically) to plan workouts and one below for the plans of my other family members.

    Can you share a picture of the Erin Condren planner you talked about at the beginning of this episode? I would love to see how you laid it out.

    I’m glad that there’s an episode now for ClickUp! I’ve been waiting for this episode as this has been the one that worked for me! I did paper, digital planners, Notion, Trello but this has all that’s missing. The automation is just so helpful in categorizing my lists.
