If you followed me recently on Snapchat and here on the blog, you’ll see I was excited to get my hands on these Power Sheets. Six months had passed and I looked at myself and thought, “What have I got to show for 2016?” Sure, yes, my word for 2016 was “Commit” and did I do that with efficiency and intention? I’m not so sure.
I asked about goal setting and strategic planning in Xenia’s group. I had conversations with Melissa. I ended up ordering these Power Sheets.
I had a bit of time for myself on Saturday, and I headed off to Office Depot. I know, fun times, eh? I’d seen a lot of examples of people coil-binding their sheets and wanted to do the same. Melissa has hers in a 3-ring binder. I wanted a pocket in case I had loose papers to stuff in it. I pulled out a bunch of different types of pocket folders to see if the Office Depot printer could help incorporate it in the binding. She said yes!
The printer and I ultimately settled on a cheapo paper pocket folder for 89-cents. She felt it would be the best way to go in terms of weight and fit.
At Office Depot, I was able to choose the covers. The standard is a clear plastic front cover and a black vinyl cover. I chose two frosted plastic covers.
First thing the printer had to do is cut the folder to fit the rest of the sheets.
Then she got it all bound with a white coil instead of the standard black coil. I considered having two pockets in my Power Sheets journal but decided one would be enough. We’ll see how it goes for the next six months.
And the finished product!
Total cost: $3.49 (binding) + $1.60 (2 frosted covers) + $0.89 (paper pocket folder) = $6 (plus tax).
Honestly, I have spent three days trying to work on the pre-work section during a holiday weekend where there is other work to do and holiday parties to attend. I still need a few days to dig deep and get through the worksheets. It has been a little emotionally draining and humbling to put things in words. I’m almost embarrassed to share my pages. I’ll have to think about this one.
Anyway, order your Power Sheets today before midnight! (Don’t forget to use code: JULYFIREWORKS.)
