Inside Kendra Wright’s Planning Process

Planning is a very personal process. We all have a different process to plan what we’re going to work on and get accomplished, and what goals we will focus on. That’s why I always find it interesting to dive into inspiring people’s planning process. Earlier last year, I invited Kendra Wright, creator of the Year of Fear project on the blog.
