Welcome to the second post in the June Planner Choices Blog Series here at Createyou86. The topic of this post is something that i think about all of the time. What is the REAL value of planning? From someone who started out never planning in her childhood to being an avid planner in her late 20's.
The value that i get from planning is immeasurable. I am able to keep my life together by planning, and i am able to keep ahead of myself. Although, i do not have a lot to plan on a weekly basis, i do find that it eases my mind to write everything down, and organize. Planning really benefits everyone weather they know it or not. Maybe you are planning a party. There are many aspects that need to be planned: The guest list, food, venue, time, entertainment, etc. When everything is planned out it makes it easy for everyone to know where they need to be, and when. It also helps to plan the before, and if people are going to bring something with them to help supply the party. Every person wins by knowing everything that they need to know, and you knowing what you need to do, and where you need to be.
I feel like the biggest value from planning is originality. Your planner is a place that no one else needs to see, but you, and you can express yourself without judgement. You can make it beautiful, scrappy, neat, or messy, and know that it is all you, and your ideas.
