There’s something about a paper planner. One where you actually write with a pen. I love all the possibility the clean pages hold – the entire year a blank slate, ready to be written.
Every year I get a new planner, and this year’s no different – except for one thing. I’m actually going to write in it. How novel, huh?
Here’s the thing. Every January I have grand plans to write and fully use my planner… to answer every question, check off every to-do, fill in all the white space. But, that white space… it’s just so pretty, which makes it hard to write. Because sloppy handwriting. Because do I use just black pen or turquoise + magenta, too?
The dumbest thing, right?! (Pretty sure I’m not the only one who does this… am I?)
That changes this year. I will fully use both my planners – ink + volt’s volt planner and Danielle LaPorte’s desire map planner – as well as write in my five-minute journal daily. This year is all about doing, about creating my life exactly how I want it to be.
