The Bubble Planner & Giveaway

Using the Bubble Planner is a simple two-step process. First, write down everything that is on your mind. If any of the items are connected, draw lines between the bubbles to reinforce the connections. Second, use another to page to break down the items from step one. Start with the first item and identify the “Next Physical Action” you need to take to complete the task. Do this for each item until you have a full page. Whichever item feels the most important, start working on it. When you have completed that item either cross it out or highlight it.

Here’s an example (See Diagram). I have to send out a Swap-bot package to a random person expecting fabric from a (you guessed it) swap. In order to accomplish this, I need to pick up the fabric from my store, buy a mailer, and go to the post office. While I’m at my store I might as well pic up my laptop and the dress I just finished for my little cousin. You connect the bubbles of related actions and you get the idea.

This is the Bubble Map theory. Some people do great with bubble maps because they’re supposed to:

  1. Improve Communication with the Brain.
  2. Engage Memory.
  3. Convert Energy into Action.
  4. Offload Mental Processes.
  5. Create Focus and Concentration.
  6. Spark Creativity.
  7. Establish Boundaries.
  8. Support Visual-Spatial Learners.

You can read full descriptions of this list at the Bubble Planner site.

The back of the page is a space for you to create a list – ie grocery shopping. That’s cool, except I have like 5 shopping list booklets around, with an awesome one that I actually use for that purpose. The others end up being notes to the babysitter.

Unfortunately, I’m not into the bubble map system, being more of a linear person myself. My favorite feature of this system was the ability to move pages around, as easily as you would refile a Rolodex card. One gentle tug, and the notches release from the rings. To add more paper or replace a page, just press the notches around the rings.

What I’m going to do is create my own planner pages. I think this is a trend starting in my life. I need something pretty linear with the dates and times already written out, my cleaning routine pre-populated (including daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonally specifics), my daily water intake, exercise goals, and maybe a food log. I could also add in a section to chart the baby’s routine, but I’m pretty good at remembering that stuff.
