The      WAD  guide

CONGRATS!

You are the owner of a "What a Day" Planner. Now let's get you set up, you'll find tips, tricks, and a few explanationS here to help you get the most out of your WAD planner.

TIPS & TOOLS

​As a rule of thumb, your pen of choice should use ink that is not alcohol based, as it will cause bleeding.

BALLPOINT/GEL

Ballpoint, as well as most gel pens, water based pens and of course, colored pencils, are all good tools of choice!

SHARPIE

Do not use sharpie (unless no bleed), prismacolor, or any "permanent" and or alcohol based pens.

RECOMMENDED

My favorite pens include the following:

  • Staedtler Triplus Fineliner

  • Koi Brush Pens

  • Zebra dual tip Midliner, mild ink.

  • Tombow dual end brush pen

THE KEY

YOUR KEY IS WHAT YOU USE TO INDICATE WHAT TYPE OF NOTE YOU'RE MAKING. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THAT IT IS "INTERACTIVE". IF YOU COMPLETE A TASK HALF WAY THROUGH, YOU ONLY FILL IT IN HALF WAY, AND FULLY ONCE COMPLETED! TO MOVE IT TO A DIFFERENT DAY, YOU STRIKE AN ARROW THROUGH IT, AND TO CANCEL, YOU PLACE AN "X" OVER IT. YOUR KEY SHOULD MAKE SENSE TO YOU, MY ADVICE IS TO KEEP IT SIMPLE!

HERE IS A SAMPLE KEY:

A FEW MORE THINGS BEFORE YOU GET STARTED...

THE INDEX
THE INDEX IS ALREADY PRE-FILLED WITH ALL THE PAGES THAT ALREADY EXIST IN YOUR BOOK. ALL THE PAGES THAT ARE BLANK ARE OPEN FOR WHEN YOU DECIDE WHAT THEY ARE GOING
​ TO BE!
ORDER OF PAGES:
 ​THE "WAD" IS ORGANIZED IN ALTERNATING FOUR AND FIVE WEEK PERIODS, WITH A MONTHLY PAGE IN BETWEEN. JUST START ON MONDAY AND KEEP GOING. THE MONTHLY PAGE WILL FALL EITHER A FEW DAYS BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF THE MONTH OR A FEW AFTER. WHILE IT IS IDEAL TO START USING YOUR WAD AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MONTH, BUT YOU CAN SKIP TO THE APPROPRIATE WEEK IF YOU'RE JUST TOO EXCITED TO WAIT!
"OTHER" PAGES:
THOSE PAGES LIKE 32, 41-42, AND SEVERAL OTHERS, ARE FOR YOUR IDEAS, BRAINSTORMS, DOODLES, GOALS, HABITS, EVENT PLANNING, OR ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO FILL IT WITH! THE LAST TWO SECTIONS STARTING ON PAGES 75 AND 91 ARE BLANK JOURNAL PAGES FOR YOU TO FILL WITH MEMORIES, MOMENTS OF GRATITUDE, OR SOMETHING ELSE ESPECIALLY MEANINGFUL TO YOU!

You're Ready!

TIME TO BLOW THIS POPSICLE STAND.
