My Planner Journey
I don't remember when I started using a planner, but I can say with all certainty, I've been using a planner for as long as I can remember. In middle school (6th to 8th grade), I ran track, played the flute in band, attempted to play basketball for a short minute, religiously attended 4-H meetings, was active in my youth church group, and played softball on a weekend, non-school related team. In short, I was busy!!
That didn't change when I went to high school, in fact I think I got busier and it just kept going like that. Fast-forward to today and I'm still a busy bee, but I've learned a lot of strategies and tools to keep me productive as I move through the world.
From client calls to online meetings, mastermind groups, artist's circles, and running e-courses and webinars, my online life stays full. That's not even considering my offline life that includes lots of face-to-face time with folks taking live workshops with me, a few local clients, spending time with family and friends, my personal-creative-practice, and my love for traveling. Yep! I would be lost without my planner. And YEP!! I still treasure my paper & pen planner (and also use my iPhone as well).
So this is the beginning of my planner journey conversation. I hope you'll join me. Here is a video I did to share my many planners and notebooks. There will be more to come.
My main mission in my planning is to do it with intention. I have lots of rituals and routines I've established over the years to help me stay the course. I'll share those as we go deeper into the discussion. Stay tuned.
So, you know I have to ask:

This video is every planner's geeked out dream. Thank you! It's so reassuring to see you with so many books to track so much and not feel it has to be all in one place. I'm testing the Passion Planner with a binder with Life is Messy planner printables along with small blank Moleskine notebooks but I really like your Midori approach! Also, the Tick app has saved my sanity. It's a place where I keep multiple lists with fun colorful icons and the lists are emailable. Thanks again, Kiala!
