Welcome to another Transformation Tuesday here at Createyou86. At the end of September this blog, and business will be two years in the making. I can't even believe it. This has been such an amazing journey, and i am so glad that i have been lucky enough to share it with all of you . I want to be honest in that i did not pick this topic today. The other half of Createyou86 did (James). Many times when asked what motivates me i keep it simple, and answer that "i enjoy it, or i like doing it". James has challenged me to expand on my feelings.
Where is my motivation in planning? As i have discussed several times before, and if you follow this blog you would know that before finding planning almost two years ago i NEVER USED A PLANNER. Not for school, not for life, not for anything. I have enjoyed immensely learning about planning, blogging, and organization, but i enjoy putting my own spin on the topics, and what i use to achieve my planning, blogging, and organization goals.
When i decided that i wanted to be a Fauxdori Creator i decided that i wanted to be completely unique in what i used to create my product, and i feel that i achieved that. Yes, i have watched hundreds of planner videos LITERALLY HUNDREDS! However, I try to keep my planner unique. I don't have all of the planner stickers that people buy from Etsy, I don't have the most recent, or most expensive planners, and i most likely don't even have the same setup as your planner does. To me planning is all about being unique in the way that you plan, and using what works for you. I feel in my planning concept that i have achieved this, and it motivates me to keep on planning the way that i do because it helps me achieve what i need to do.
When watching YouTube i love how other people make their YouTube videos, but i always want my videos to be a little bit different, and most importantly honest. I don't have a DSLR Camera, and i don't have an awesome color coded office to sit in (yet). It is just me in my own personal environment, and i'm okay with that.
Because i was never organized before i never had a true sense of achievement. I think this is why i enjoy planning, and organization so much now. I can't get enough of the community, and planning honestly simply makes life easier. I never knew i could kind so much enjoyment in planning my days, weeks, months, and years. Planning is an ever changing art form, and i intend to change with it.
I hope that this article has given you some perspective, and has given you a little bit of insight into who i am, and why i plan. I really enjoyed taking a deeper look at why i do what i do, and what motivates me.
