\item Do set aside some time each week to get ready for the week ahead. Because this is a Monday-to-Sunday planner, I recommend setting aside a half hour or so on Sunday evening to look at what you managed to accomplish during the week, and plan out the week to come. It is \textit{much} easier to do this the day before the new week, rather than once the week has started.
\item Do get your annual goals set very early in the year. You don't have to get them done before the new year starts—it helps to take a little time (the month of January, for instance) to reflect back on the previous year and figure out what went well and what still needs work. That will help you determine how many new goals you can handle in the coming year.
\item Don't keep items that you want to turn into habits forever. For example, if you want to get into the habit of doing a refrigerator inventory every Friday evening before you go shopping on the weekend, only keep that as a to-do item until it becomes an ingrained habit. Once you do this automatically, you don't need to keep recording it as a task to do.
\item Don't fill out all those monthly and weekly goals at the bottom of the planner pages all at once. Take time at the end of each week to think about how this week has gone and what you'd like to accomplish in the coming week.
