I'm feeling it. Are you?
I'm feeling the pressure to settle on my planner system for this year. We're just over a month into the year now, and if I can make a final decision now I'll be set for the year (with minimal recopying/ consolidation into my planner of choice).
Luckily I've been set on my weekly planner, which is my Plannerisms planner (of course!).
But I've still been doing some back-and-forth on my day per page planner.
This is the third year I've used a day per page planner for recording each day along with my weekly planner for planning. The system works extremely well for me, but I still have a hard time deciding which day per page to use. I want the biggest page I can get, but in a book that's not huge to carry around.
I've been going back and forth between a bound day per page (one I dated myself in a beautiful Paperblanks notebook, which you can see all about here):
Franklin Covey Two Pages Per Day inserts.
I recently received a Franklin Covey binder, and even though it's very nice, it's pretty huge. In fact, if I'm honest it's bigger than what I want to carry in my bag everywhere.
Homemakers Daily, who is my Franklin Covey inspiration. She's been using FC for 20 years and has a system that works well for her. She tracks her finances and archives consistently. I aspire to that level of planner functionality. But in our email conversation, she said I should probably stop struggling to use FC and just keep using what's been working so well for me these past three years: a bound daily book along with my weekly planner. Looseleaf pages make me nervous because I'm so bad about switching them around between binders, causing them to get lost. The permanence of a bound book means I always know where to look for information. Having "permission" from my Planner Guru made me feel free to go back to my bound book.
Is my system perfect? Probably not. But it works well for me in the vast majority of situations. And it's portable, which is extremely important to me for capturing details on the go.
What about you? Have you settled on your planner system for this year? Or are you still figuring out what you need and want from your planner?
