plan+do™ style

Expressives love connecting with others.

Using this style isn’t about being theatrical, although many people who enjoy the arts may find themselves within this style.

The plan+do styles are a combination of your personality + planning + productivity styles that shows you how to get things done in the most productive way for YOU!

Expressive Personality
Expressive’s love connecting with people and are passionate about forming relationships.

passionate about relationships


intuitive decisions
comfortable going with your gut


best cheerleader
encouraging others to stay the course


You anticipate the needs + feelings of others. You intuitively know what needs to be done. You tend to go with your gut when making decisions.

Expressive’s love nothing better than to make sure everyone is ok. You’re a cheerleader, encouraging others to stay the course + see the job done.

Often times you find yourself connecting with others through stories. Your open + informal approach forms bonds with all kinds of different people.

Questions for you often start with “Who is …?” or “Who can …?”

Expressive Planning
Give yourself the gift of connection + the space to create a day that works with you.
better focus
check in with others regularly


time blocks
work with your energy levels


batching tasks
avoid boredom and get things done


Because of your intuition + the way you like to connect with others, how you plan your day will look different too. When you can structure your day with time to check in with others, you focus better.

Like the Creative, a tightly scheduled day doesn’t bring you peace or joy like it does for others.

Ideally you like to work with blocks of time for your projects + tasks. This allows you to divide your day to match your energy + do what needs to be done.

Having specific task blocks in your day works great. You can match your work to your energy which helps to keep you from getting bored or distracted.

Within these time blocks you can batch smaller + less exciting tasks together to keep you from getting distracted. Perfect for getting those tedious yet important tasks done.

For example you may organise your days with:

Morning – plan, research + create
  • Afternoon – admin, errands + connect with people
Evening – family, social + me time

You don’t have to have your own business or a career to take advantage of time blocks + batching. They work great for the most important job in the world too, parenting!

Expressive Doing
And just like your schedule, you enjoy space with a little structure in your planner.
room with structure
connect people + plans together


additional space
scattered notes or grid pages throughout


weekly meetings
connect with and care for others


To connect the people + pieces of your week you’ll enjoy using a single page year overview for a quick glance. While a double page monthly spread is essential to organise people + plans.

With a weekly page for a little structure and master todo list, you’ll have the space you crave while being able to focus on what matters.

If you are coordinating a larger family or mixing personal + business together you may prefer a double week spread with your master todo list.

And just like your schedule, you benefit from additional space. Add some grid or note pages on the reverse side of your month and weekly pages throughout your planner.

Connect people + tasks with a weekly meeting. They are great for families too. Write down everything that needs your attention for the coming week.

A side bonus is everyone else knows what they are responsible for too. An easy way to sprinkle your intuitive magic and have space to plan more ways to care others.

Either the night before or early that morning list the top three things you need to do or people to connect with for the day. And if you have time to spare after these are done you can check in with your master todo list for what’s next.

When things pop into your mind simply write it on the master todo list. Even though you’d love to chat to them straight away, with it written down you don’t need to be concerned that you’ll forget about it later.

As a Expressive you enjoy a little colour in your planner. Colour coding schedules + tasks is half the planning fun!

I absolutely LOVE my planner and the fact that it fits into my life, rather than I fit into it. I'd be lost without my planner now. It's the best!

I've actually been using the Burst since 2017 and I absolutely love it. I've tried countless productivity and to do list and planning apps over the years, I gave up and went back to a paper planner!

Thanks sooo much, Jacqui!! I really love the planner. I've used it for the third year now 🙂 And now I can use it for the fourth time also.

My daughter and I both love your style! We plan to put a spiral binding on it as opposed to putting it into a binder. She is headed off to college in the fall and was looking for the perfect planner.

I love all the options and choices! It certainly will be a planner designed just for me! I couldn’t find one in any store that I liked enough to buy. So excited to get started printing and planning!  Thanks for making this so easy!
