That's really what it's all about anyway, right?
Remember what Jim Rohn says... Life is not just the passing of time. Life is the collection of experiences and their intensity
Here are a few reasons I love my paper Monthly Planner.
First, by writing things down I actually remember them. There is something about this process that helps things really click for me!
My planner is also like a journal - a little glimpse into my daily life and all the comings and goings. I have my planners going back for years and although I don't really refer to them the archive is kind of fun.
Another reason is that I can see everything at once. This is probably the best reason - the entire month all before my eyes!!
Also, it makes me happy! I use colored markers to brighten things up a bit! You should see my mom's paper planner - she doodles and draws elaborate pictures in it sometimes. :)
Do you ever find that sometimes digital clutter is worse than paper clutter? I don't know about you, but I can ignore or snooze a digital reminder or task on my computer forever. But, until I physically throw away a post-it note or cross off an item on my to-do list or in my planner... it does not go away. It's always in front of me!
Lately, I've also used an extra Monthly Planner as a editorial type calendar for my blog and emails. Here's a sneak peek below - like today's post about why I use a paper planner. :) Nice and convenient, huh?
