"to appreciate, create, nurture, or cultivate beauty in myself, others, the environment, etc"

What does this mean for planning?

Time spent creating is not time wasted. Although it's hard to point to the productivity of creating, it's still important. You need to allow time for it in your schedule.

Make a mundane task (like planning your week) more fun by using colors and stickers and things that allow you to express your personality.

Use timeblocking to carve out dedicated time in your schedule to let the creative juices flow. Before the scheduled timeblock, remove any obstacles to creativity (set up your area beforehand, go to the bathroom beforehand, do any research or prepwork before the timeblock, etc).

And lastly, DO NOT OVERCRAM YOUR SCHEDULE. It suffocates new ideas.

What feature of the Sol Planner you'll love most: the weekly layout makes it easy to schedule in a timeblock, the stickers make it look fun, and although there's thoughtful structure to the Sol Planner there's still a lot of room for flexibility and a way to creatively use it how you want.
