On Planners

There are so many things to write about planners. I have always been obsessed with them. Which one was/is going to solve my life?

I am so happy that in the last several years, paper planners are appearing everywhere. Check out #plannercommunity on Instagram and you’ll be amazed…not only at the variety, but also the creativity.

I’ve been a bullet journaler for almost 4 years, which in times of great stress, has been the most helpful, easiest way to stay somewhat organized. But it doesn’t solve all my current issues – it could, if I didn’t procrastinate so much. Ryder Carroll‘s book ‘The Bullet Journal Method’ is one of the best I’ve read on goal planning without losing the point of being human and being alive.

I have just set up my bullet journal for the month of October, and I feel more on track already. But I do have some issues with productivity in general ⁠— working at home is not necessarily all it’s cracked up to be ⁠— so I’m going to try out the Productivity Planner, by Intelligent Change.

A work-at-home friend of mine recommended it and says within a week she was getting way more done (in combination with The 5 Minute Journal). I have actually owned the Productivity Planner for a couple of years, but have not started using it. This week though, this week for sure.

So we will see how it goes. If you like, I can update you on my progress.
