Over the years, I have flip flopped from paper to digital. I have bought LOTS of paper planners in search of the perfect one. The one which allows me to put “everything” in one spot. It has been a challenge.
I have tried Erin Condren. Nice but a little pricey for me
I have tried digital but I always manage to forget to look at the calendar except when I am adding thing to it.
I have tried the ARC system from Staples. Liked it but it was really heavy when I was trying to carry a whole year of weekly & monthly sections. Of course the load got lighter as the months passed and I took out pages.
I tried the “inexpensive” ones from Target or Walmart. Just not enough space for everything.
Many years ago when I was in the non-profit world, DayTimer was my best friend. I loved it. It didn’t seem practical as I added my direct sales business to the mix of things.
I needed a monthly calendar to look at the big picture, I need space during the week to schedule appointments along with space to make notes for my to do list.
I saw the Passion Planner about two years ago, about $35 but they always run lots of specials. It provided me with some structure to set goals (long and short term), review how the month went and space to dream. It looks professional and comes in two sizes to make it easy to carry.
At Thirty One’s National Conference, they introduced a planner just for consultants. I was a little skeptical since I really liked the Passion Planner. We were given an opportunity to purchase it and try it. So in mid-October it arrived. I sat my Passion Planner on the desk as a back up. I wasn’t ready to let go. But after two months of using my Thirty One planner, my Passion Planner is now sitting on the shelf. I know, you are wondering why I bothered telling you right?
Well, during Customer Appreciation Month which started on Tuesday morning, Thirty One is offering a paper planner to our customers in two options in the Exclusive Celebrate You style! Each planner is made to order by an outside printer, therefore we cannot guarantee that this item is delivered by December 25th
What type of planner do you use? What are your biggest challenges in finding a planner which works for you?
Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
