Here's a little story, let me know if this sounds familiar!
You walk into a store in the fall season (or spring for my friends down under) and you you notice, giddily, that they've set out the display of all the pretty new planners for 2015. You have to stop yourself from actually running over to have a look. Your hands are shaking as you start picking them up, going through them, and dreaming about all the potential that those pristine little white boxes hold. You study the cover designs, the layout of the pages, and weigh the pros and cons of an elastic to hold it closed and a spiral binding. You end up picking the prettiest one. Or maybe you researched endlessly online to find printable planner pages that you thought were the prettiest and the best fit for you.
You go home, sit by the fire (or outside in the shade, if you are south of the equator) and with a pretty new pen, you very carefully and meticulously fill out every little possible appointment, event and birthday that comes to mind, no matter how small. You use your best handwriting, just waiting for January 1st to hurry up and get here so that you can actually use this fabulous, pretty planner that's going to change your life and make 2015 your most organised year ever! This is THE year. The year, you vow to actually use your planner and be organised!
January 1st comes and the planner comes to life! You've scheduled your every move for January 1, but when the time comes you only sort of half follow it, because it is New Year's day after all. You vow to be more vigilant come Monday morning, then you sit by the fire and fill out your every move for Monday morning.
Monday comes and you eagerly use your planner, but slowly as January marches on, you start using it less and less.
Things aren't working.
You keep forgetting where you put it and maybe you even missed an appointment or two!
About mid-month, you pull up your socks, and decide to buckle down and really use the planner. You fill our your every move for the next day in the planner, determined to get back on the horse. The next day comes and your forget it at home.
So come February, that pretty planner is long forgotten on a shelf or in a drawer along with all your good intentions, all collecting dust!
You just aren't a planner person!
If this sounds at all like you, then I can relate!
I've been there, I've been through it, had these false starts many years over and I've come out the other side.
Just because the planner isn't working for you doesn't mean that you can't use a planner, it just means that it was the WRONGplanner for YOU!
After repeating this story year after year, I now have a planner system that's practically perfect... for me! Now, while my system will not work for you, I can help you set up your Practically Perfect Planner system.
I've called on two friends who have their own planner systems down and working perfectly for them. Ashli Oliver and Richelle Shadoan. They will add their experience, advice, tips and tricks to help you figure out, develop and create your perfect planner.
Whether your style is simple or elaborate, your schedule busy or overwhelming, you'll be able to come up with a planner system that works for you.
This is a 6 week course starting February 9 and running until March 22, because you can start your planner system any time of the year, not just January 1.
