How does The Design Trust diary planner work?

  • The Design Trust dated diary planner is based on Patricia’s 25+ years of experience working as an award-winning creative business adviser, trainer and coach, working with 1,000s of creatives throughout the UK. It’s based on her extensive research and real-life experience of scientifically-proven time management and productivity tools. Not to get you to do ‘just more stuff’, but to give you the strategy, framework and accountability that really works to create the best life and business for you. Helping you make the right decisions for you and your business. Every single day.

  • This diary planner starts with a series of creative and strategic exercises and thought-provoking questions to plan for your success. You can do these exercises at the start of the year, or whenever you need to get more focus, productive or accountability. Asking you some fundamental questions – from setting goals of what you want to achieve (this year and beyond) to your financial forecast for the year to your marketing and social media plans and ideal client research.

  • Every quarter you will review how your creative business is doing, what's working well and what needs your attention and work. Set your own 90-day juicy goal and create your own quarterly plan to move your creative business forward. Breaking big goals down into smaller do-able chunks. Stop talking and procrastinating. Start doing.

  • Every month you plan and review to stay on track of your bigger goals: With timely actions for that month (in finance, money, creation, organisation, and your health), followed by a social media calendar for you to fill in with suggestions of content ideas for that month, monthly creative business tips around a relevant topic to grow your business that month, and a month-to-view planner with key dates, and set your own monthly business and personal goals and key appointments.

  • Every week you can plan and review your progress: You can choose what to focus on each week and even every day. Each week there is a different but often timely thought-provoking question to get you into action. Plus each day you will focus on getting just 3 things done – using one of the oldest but best time management tricks in the world!

  • This is much MORE THAN JUST A DIARY! It’s the perfect time management tool to help you succeed, to set goals that matter and to give you timely action points and ideas to move your business forward. BONUSES: If you purchase The Design Trust diary planner 2020 then you also get 2 additional online workshops, 3 quarterly juicy planning workshops, and access to our exclusive Facebook group.

  • With plenty of space for your appointments, goals, thoughts and ideas
