The Daily PlanIt
Writer, Teacher of GREAT Skills, Designer of Coaching Tools
I’m Rosemary Rice, and I’ve been writing about productivity and personal growth at the Daily PlanIt website since 2005. The name of my website reveals my interest in teaching skills to be GREAT @work and @life, and my fondness for Superman and wordplay.
The Right Tools for the Job
I love to design, find, organize and share great tools for setting goals, increasing productivity, and developing skills for a successful and fulfilling life. I am passionate about connecting people with resources to learn the skills they need to survive and thrive.
A gap commonly occurs when employers fail to find employees with the soft skills they are looking for in the workforce. Why? because the skills that are most in demand in the workplace are not often taught. We can change this! The GREAT skills I talk about are:
- Goal Setting
- A+ Communication
- Time Management
And I’ll tell you a secret. When you learn to follow the practices that research has shown will increase happiness and well-being, you also learn these great skills. Start with BE MEASURING, and along the way you unlock potential and develop strengths to open doors to opportunity.
- Uncover hidden talents with many great tools that I have found, including a link to the free eBook “How to Start A Fire.” My course, “On Purpose,” at Udemy goes into more detail. If you’re struggling with this, I believe it can help. My article at Productive Magazine explains how personal branding is a powerful way to discover purpose.
- GOALS: My eBook, “Get Goaling” is a clear step-by-step guide to setting & achieving goals. You can start learning about this skill with a free short course on How to Set Goals.
- PRODUCTIVITY: If you want to increase your productivity, a good place to start is my free Time Management 101 Tutorial. You might also like my video with the 10 Commandments of Non-Productivity and Visual Strategies to Overcome Procrastination.
Learn how to make shift happen and follow the practices that lead to happiness and well-being. Coming Soon: my new eBook!
GREAT Skills Trading Cards:
I am a volunteer tutor, teaching reading skills with literacykc.org. I love working with the students, and am fascinated by both the process of learning to read English and the idea of gamification to make learning fun. I’ve gathered many resources to create a Phonics Kit. There are many hands-on games at the ABCs of Games for Reading, and free online games for phonics are collected in a Symbaloo. I sell some games at the Super Tutor Tools page at TeachersPayTeachers, including a starter Phonics Kit Set.
TOOLS FOR COACHING & PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
The Year of Personal Development Challenge includes a weekly activity for a year to develop many skills. Develop even more skills with free online courses and the Development Center at the Sticky Wiki.
The Resources page contains toolkits for: Productivity | Goals | Personal Development, and more. There you can find lots of Free Tools created by the Daily PlanIt, plus more collected from others. Some of my printable tools for productivity and personal development are available for sale at Sellfy. There are also some for teaching reading at the Super Tutor store at Teachers Pay Teachers. Check out all my eBooks too.
