Before using my Set up Success planner I had an issue with organizing my time and writing all my assignments down. My previous school-issued planners were a big struggle, considering they were tiny, cramped with important dates and events for school, and I could only see one week of homework on 2 pages. Now I am able to see a whole month span of homework, keep better track of my homework as well as extracurricular activities, and organize all my papers that I receive each day. Overall, my planner makes me feel like I CAN get through the school year. I really appreciate the little notes of advice for each month and the Daily To Do Page to organize everything I have going on each week. Thank you Marydee for an amazing and extremely helpful tool to help me through the school year! I’ll always remember that my planner is like my best friend!
I love it. It is easy to use. Having a plan lowers my homework stress.
I just wanted to let you know that all last year I tried to get my daughter to use a planner, and she refused. She said that they don’t work for her. I purchased 6 of your planners as I knew that I would be getting a few students to work with on Seeing my Time this Fall. I was also hoping that my daughter would use one. She looked at it, watched the video, and is excited to try using it this school year!! She even decorated the front and back, and has already highlighted all of the school holidays! I am so excited!! Thank you for creating such an awesome tool! I have also sold all of the other planners, and will probably have to order more!
I wasn't sure what to expect with the EFS planners, but I was eager enough to try something new to help my son with ADD plan time and manage assignments. I bought the adult version for myself as I also am struggling to prioritize and get clear on how I can get important tasks done.
First of all, the videos were helpful. My son has internalized the key ideas. As for me, I gained a lot of tips that have made a difference in my work. I like using the daily sheets and putting to-do items near available time but not exactly "assigning" them to that time. In the past, I used a similar weekly schedule, but shame and a sense of failure would build up because I always underestimated how long it would take to complete tasks and therefore was inevitably "behind." I would strongly recommend the EFS system to folks looking to get a handle on their productivity and also on their feelings about how they work. I now feel much more neutral and matter-of-fact about planning, whether I zoom through tasks or not.
The student planners were lifesavers for my students and they absolutely loved them. I continue to use and share the tools and strategies I have learned from the various classes I have taken from Marydee. These classes changed my life and how I view my students!
