|Frankie, my new personal assistant!|
For years, I've been trying app after app, calendar after calendar, all in the hopes of trying to maintain some sort of balance. All to no avail. The reminders I have beeping on my cell-phone are usually ignored. :)
As a writer, I know the power of the written word and how I simply remember more and feel more committed to something when it's down on paper.
So, this year, I bought myself a brand new, leather bound, Franklin Covey planner - probably a little too big to fit in my bag, but we'll see.
I had a few "must-haves" on my list when I went looking for a planner (not a big surprise, right? LOL) I wanted a zip pocket, I had to have a place for a pad on the inside right, I also wanted at least one pocket on the left side.
Over the next few days I will be immersing myself in YouTube videos on planner set-ups and how to decorate my planner - because let's face it, stickers and colored pens are awesome...the scrapbooker in me is in pig heaven at the idea of adding creative touches to my new boring brown planner! (Poor Frankie, is going to be girled up in no time!)
Now, as I move into 2014, I'm filling up the calendar with goals and dividing my planner into both day-to-day life plans and long term goals.
Next Friday, I'll give you a peek inside :)
How are you doing on your new year goals? Do you use a paper planner or are you an electronic calendar girl?
