Good Morning Planners,
Have you ever sat down with stacks of bills, or papers and been completely overwhelmed when thinking "Where am I going to fit all of these dates on my planner? and in addition to that "Why would I want to add all of these dates to my planner?" For me keeping track of dates, and times used to be an arduous task. I would collect my bills or papers, and the second I sat down I would want to get up, and do something else. However, as I have gotten older I have new responsibilities, places to be, and bills that need to be paid. In order to cut down on the anxiety that used to overwhelm me when planning in advance (I think this is why I never used an agenda in school), I now take each piece as it comes to me. The day the information is presented to me I find my planner as soon as I can and eliminate the anxiety by just getting it done. This way by the end of the month I don't have 15 bills, or other dates that need to be written down. Oh, and the everlasting sticky note obsession. Sticky notes work wonders when you don't have time to sit down , and immediately plan. Just try to make sure that they make it into the appropriate planner page for future review. You may even be more comfortable by date / bill tracking at night, in bed where you have no distractions.
Have a planned Day,
