Life Tip: Get a Planner

life tip: get a planner

All my life, I have depended on a planner. Remember in school when you would get one at the beginning of the school year? That was my favorite day of the year. New planner, new possibilities.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve tried out different planners. I even tried to rely completely on technology – my Google calendar and Evernote. But, it just didn’t feel the same.

There is something about physically writing in a planner that helps to get things done. Nothing feels better than actually crossing something off a list or checking a box. That is why you need to get a planner.

For the upcoming year, I’ve opted to try something new and get the BASICS Notebook. They claim it will simplify your life and I believe them — any planner will help you simplify your life.

What kind of planner do you use?

    1. I love my current planner, but I am looking forward to getting my new one for 2016. I just think it’s so much easier to see everything in my own handwriting.

  1. I’ve been using an electronic device (starting with Amstrad Pad in 1980- the forerunner to the Palm Pilot). And, I have never looked back at my Day Timer days. (Oh, and I’ve convinced my kids to convert from DayTimers, too- because having one list (NOT Google, NOT Evernote) for to do, for projects, for contacts, for calendars- is the only way to go. NOTHING gets lost.
    Unless you forget to sync… 🙂

    1. That’s my fear – is that I will forget to sync it or something catastrophic will happen and leave me missing an important due date. As long as it works for you – that’s all that matters! 🙂
