Master Your Schedule with My 10-Minute Weekly Planning Process (using Tana)

It's a new week, so I thought I'd show you around my Weekly Planning Process in Tana. To be fair it's the same planning process I've used for years through many different apps including Trello, Notion, Roam & Obsidian. The best thing about it? It will only take you about 10 minutes to do!

Plus I talk about a few concepts that I've picked up over the years including theming my days and using cycles to make sure I don't load up my day with too many things.

Hope you take some planning inspiration from it!
