Listers love making lists!
Using this style isn’t about being regimented, although many people who enjoy organising may find themselves within this style.
The plan+do styles are a combination of your personality + planning + productivity styles that shows you what kind of planner pages work best + how to get things done in
the most productive way
Listers love lists! You and the big guy in the red suit enjoy making your list, and checking it twice! (It’s Christmas time so I couldn’t resist)
lover of lists
success is in the details of a good list
practical step by step approach
quality outcomes is all part of your magic
You’re a natural wonder at planning things out. Detailed sequences are your thing. You easily track the details with your practical step by step approach.
Listers love nothing better than to see a job done ahead of schedule. You’re ability to focus is admired by others.
Often times you find yourself carefully reconsidering that all possibilities are accounted for. Juggling changes to still achieve the same quality outcome is all part of your magic.
Questions for you often start with “How will …?” or “How can …?”
When you structure your day with a little buffer for the unexpected, you focus better.
a little buffer for the unexpected
specific and energy matched
keeps the momentum growing
Because of your attention to detail + the way you like to go about your work, how you plan your day will look different too.
Give yourself the gift of finely tuned plan + the space to create a day that works with you. Like the Analyser, a planned day brings you peace + joy.
Ideally you like to work with larger blocks of time for your projects + tasks. This allows you to plan for the unexpected + have time to think and reflect.
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 tasks together to keep your project moving ahead. Perfect for taking care of those tiny yet important details.
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!
And just like your schedule, you enjoy space with a little structure in your planner.
room with structure
connect people + plans together
some additional space
scattered notes or grid pages throughout
perfect for connecting + caring for others
To connect the people + pieces of your week you’ll enjoy using a double page year is essential to coordinate people + plans. While a single page monthly spread for a quick glance.
With a single today page for your time blocks + daily todo list, you’ll have the details you crave to focus on what matters.
If you are coordinating a larger family or mixing personal + business together you may prefer a double monthly spread.
To think + reflect you’ll benefit from additional space. Add some grid or note pages on the reverse side of your month pages and 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. Even though you enjoy looking after + connecting with others, your mind can plan more ways to care others.
Either the night before or early that morning list the things you need to do or people to connect with for the day. Check off your top three first + if you have time to spare after these are done you can check in with your daily todo list for what’s next.
For when things pop into your mind you may like to have a master todo list. Even though you’d love to follow it up straight away, with it written down you don’t need to be concerned that you’ll forget about it later.
As a Lister you enjoy using some coloured pens + maybe some washi tape in your planner. Colour coding schedules + tasks is half the planning fun!
Lister page recipe
Each Planner Kit comes with a Tip Guide with recipes for all the plan+do styles using that kit.
These examples are from the Chic Kit.
Year C gives you space to plot the big picture details of the year.
#tip : Using some thin washi tape is a fun + creative way of blocking in holidays, trips + other events.
Month B makes it easy to map out what’s happening, combining personal, business + family.
If you don’t need as much space Month A is a great single page option. You can also use Month F and create a hanging wall calendar.
#tip : Write family member’s name or life categories on the lines for easy planning.
Different coloured pens for each let’s you quickly see what’s on for everyone.
Week A is perfect for noting your most important tasks for the day + to see the whole week at once.
Maybe you prefer more space, then Week C is perfect for a weekly spread. And if you prefer to write more, then Week C gives you that space.
Like a day to a page use Today B’s two column design for managing your tasks with plenty of space for your creativty.

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.
I know what it feels like to spend more time organising what needs to be done, than actually getting things done and feeling frustrated at the lack of progress.
Here at WhiteSpace Design Studio we know you are the kind of person who wants to plan your day with confidence, be more productive + have a better work-life balance.
To do that you need a planner designed just for you.
The problem is ...
most planners only come with one specific page style and layout that you have to adapt to which makes you feel like something’s wrong with you.
The reason you’re stuck in the planning loop, that is spending more time organising what needs to be done, instead of actually getting things done, is that there’s no one size fits all solution. And I understand that you need a planner that’s versatile to work the way you do + flexible to change with your needs.
That’s why I created FUSElife Planners so you could mix + match to create a personal planner that’s designed just for YOU!
So don't waste any more time or money, buy a FUSElife Planner Kit and create a planner that's designed just for you so you can be more productive and enjoy getting things done.

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!
