6 Questions To Ask When Choosing Your Planner:
A few things to keep in mind when picking out your planner is:
How much detail do you need to be organized? Do you want a lot of pre-written lists or do you want to fill it in as you go?
What have you used in the past you hated? You can cross those styles off your list.
What features do you love? Make sure your new planner has those features or they can be added in.
What are your favorite colors? Planning should be enjoyable. If you hate the color of the planner are you going to use it?
How much work and time do you want to invest? Some planners allow for tons of customization and take time to set up. Which is great if you view it as a “creative outlet” or “self-care” project. Power to you.
But if you want a grab and go planner don’t choose a multi step planner.
As awesome as a digital planner can be, a great planner can help you make sure you are getting what needs to be done, done! while helping you create goals, be organized, inspire you, motivate you AND give your life a sense of purpose.
