[Download] Printable 2019 Quarterly Calendar

Well, I’m officially registered to start my MFA in a matter of weeks. Weeks—eek! I just bought a new weekly planner (I buy the July—June ones), and since my academic year is going into 2019, I figured I should probably print out my quarterly calendars for 2019, too. So good news: you don’t have to wait until December or January for next year’s calendar!

Near the end of 2015, I made a post about time management, which included free downloads to help you get organized, including a Gantt Chart Excel template and a printable blank quarterly calendar.

Plan Several Months at Once with a Quarterly Calendar

I’ve been using this quarterly calendar since 2015 as a family planner, color-coding events and appointments for each family member. We can see the whole year at a glance, and I use it daily! It also works really well for planning out projects. You could use highlighters to create Gantt Charts on your calendar.

These are super simple, and I’m letting you download them for free. The only conditions are that you may not upload this calendar to your own site, you may not redistribute it (you can send people here, though), and you can’t profit from the calendar in any way. If you want to profit from a quarterly calendar, you’ll have to make one yourself, from scratch. ❤

Subscribe to my blog (don’t worry, you won’t get many updates from me!), and then download the grayscale or color calendar by clicking on the links in this sentence or on either image link below:

Time Management (& Printable 2015-2016 Quarterly Calendar)

One of my goals for October is to get more organized and be better at time management. The problem with being a work-at-home mom is that I’m always working and I’m always a mom! I’m all for being holistic, but nobody should be working all the time!

I’ll start with my calendar management, and then I’ll share the app I use to schedule my days.

Calendar Management

I took a class at my university called Writing for Organizations, and during that, I was taught how to use Gantt Charts to map out projects. I’m a visual person, so I really enjoyed it. But I haven’t applied that chart since! I created a template in Excel so that I can start using it to plan out individual months.

I also created a quarterly calendar, originally for our family so we could see the whole year at a glance, but then I decided it would work really well for planning out my projects, too. In fact, you could use highlighters to create Gantt Charts on your calendar.

Day Management

First I downloaded a Pomodoro app. The Pomodoro Technique is to set a timer for 25 minutes, work that entire time, take a 5-minute break, and then repeat two more times. After three or four “pomodoros” you get a longer break.

I picked 30/30 because I liked the graphics and the ability to color code.

30-30

You can modify your ratios between work and break. I generally split the hours up this way: 40 minutes doing something I like (like editing). 5-minute break, 10 minutes doing something I dread (like answering emails or doing dishes), and another 5-minute break.

I also schedule in leisure time, food prep, and play time with my kids. Having the day mapped out with this app helps me to see that I DO have time for everything. 30/30 is especially recommended for people with ADD/ADHD.

Motivation

If you’re struggling with motivation, I recommend the Coach.Me app. You can also try Habitica for an RPG-inspired app.
