When Was the Last Time You Did a Life Balance Assessment?

Something we hold in high regard around here at Next Level Daily is a good work-life balance.  We understand from years and years of doing the daily grind, just how much your life can suffer when you work too much and play too little. So when we created the Next Level Daily planner, we knew we wanted to have a Life Balance assessment so that we could continually check in on our life balance and re-assess as needed.  The life-balance assessment in our planners covers things like body, mind, connection to others, personal growth, financial, your personal contributions to the world, and lifestyle.

Planning your life with ADHD.

Today we have a guest blog post written for us by Dr. Lesley Cook, licensed clinical psychologist specializing in treating and supporting clients with ADHD, autism and learning disabilities. Why do ADHD’ers hate planners? The answer is….they don’t. They hate systems that “should” work but result in yet another perceived failure. This is a message I deliver on a weekly basis to clients and friends and social media followers. When a new adult client comes to see me after years of struggle, the first questions I ask are: If you had a planning system that worked for you what would it look like if money was not a factor? What would it feel like to use it? I routinely get the...
