Friday night we gathered for the Tranquility du Jour Daybook Virtual Launch Fête. Thank you for tuning in from Columbia, Canada, and across the US!
During the event, Gizmo went rogue while I shared my go-to productivity tips, answered your questions, highlighted the new components of the 272-page pink planner, and showcased some of the 32 Tranquility Tools.
In addition, longtime connoisseurs Nikol and Barbara shared their Daybook personalization and inspiration ideas via video, photos, and how-tos [psst, it’s all over on your private event page].
Here’s to planning with an eye toward tranquility, staying connected to our big dreams, and making meaningful experiences out of everyday moments. Thank you for your support of this passion project! Bisous. x
All TDJ Soirée attendees will receive a PDF (general admission) or print version (VIPs) and we’ll celebrate with a launch party at our June 9 event.
A BIG thank you to my beta readers Kirsten, Sara, Robin, Hilary, Darca, Carol, Linda, Akhila, and Barbara, my incredibly talented designer, Christy, to Tim for putting up with the days of writing and editing, and to YOU for your support.
How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing. A schedule defends from chaos and whim. It is a net for catching days. —Annie Dillard
Beloved Tranquility du Jour Daybook aficionados, despite the best of intentions to have the new version ready for prime time by spring, it’s still baking, so to speak.
My goal was to have it in your hands by now (as noted here), but I can’t stop tweaking. It’s one of my more, ahem, challenging traits (just ask my poor graphic designer). Since there isn’t an impending deadline like a new year around the corner, I’ve been tinkering longer than I’d planned.
Never fear, version 7.0 is coming and I’ve got a 250-page draft in Dropbox awaiting my attention. Inside this new edition, you’ll find a journaling how-to with prompts, a mediation how-to, 60 weekly layouts, all your favorite staples from past Daybooks and Year of Tranquility, an updated welcome that offers tips on setting up your year, and more.
I think you’ll love it! To be safe, I’m pushing back the launch date until MayJune (UPDATE: the release party happens on June 9 at TDJ Soirée) so that it can rise with a consistency that feels yummy, nourishing, and just right. Stay tuned and thanks for your support and interest in this passion project. Bisous. x
