Welcome to the first post in the Createyou86 Planner Awareness Blog Series. If anyone had told me five years ago that i would be an avid planner in 2015 i probably would have laughed, and blew you off. In highschool, and even college i either tried to remember, or just didn't care enough to remember to bring books home, or remember due dates, or i relied on my friends to tell me. It wasn't until i saw someones beautiful planner setup on Instagram that my world was turned upside down. After learning, and researching the planner community i decided to try using a planner. The first planner i purchased was by Avery for Target (I have YouTube setup videos available). This was a great basic planner setup. I purchased a pack of monthly views, a little longer than a year WO2P, 3 packs of notepaper, a set of 5 plastic heavy duty dividers, and the coordinating binder for $20.00 +/-. This system was awesome for someone just starting out, and testing the planning waters.
Planning has changed my life in multiple ways. I have always been relatively organized (outside of school work), and i have always been a punctual person. Planning has done nothing, but improve these qualities in me. I no longer forget important assignments, or appointments. Planning also helps me get my thoughts out more clearly when i make time to sit down, and plan each week out. I love the Filofax system because it is customizable to my needs. In many ways a three ring binder could be as well except for the fact that there are no weekly, or monthly inserts to plan with i would have to create my own. To move a thought or paper all i need to do is open the rings, and move it wherever my heart desires. Planning has also helped me to plan, and organize Createyou86, from website building, to blogging, and YouTube. Planning really clears my mind, and makes room for new ideas.
