Following on from my last post about getting back into the swing of things, I’m now at the planning stage.
Last week, I sat down with a mid-morning snack and asked myself a series of questions:

What existing knowledge can I build on?
Where do I want to be?
And, most importantly:
How can I get there?

I also love this free printable brainstorm sheet:
What’s your favourite way to organise your ideas?
