I’ve tried many different ways to keep track of all that’s going on in my life. Google Calendar with alerts. Apple’s Reminders. Apple’s Notes. Todoist. Notion. Basecamp. I’ve tried them all!
Nothing gave me the flexibility and functionality I needed, and they all required that I be on my phone more. Something I’m especially trying to avoid while around Etta.
Finally it dawned on me that a paper planner might just be exactly what I needed. I ordered this beauty from Papier and have been getting all my ducks in a row. A paper planner is not perfect, but it feels better to spend time tinkering around making it suit my needs than hours spent making an online app bend to my will.
After a few weeks I’ll report back to see if I’ve enjoyed this. In the meantime, please folks… tell me how you keep your lives organized??
