20150105 old way1 See this load of notebooks, this mess? That was how I was planning my days and maintaining my works-in-progress.  I had a month to view Kikki K planner, a week to view Kikki K planner, an A4 workbook and I was still using my Cozi app.  I knew I needed to practice what I preach and ensure that there was a place for everything so that everything can be in its place, so I decided to go back to paper.  My shopping list was for something that I could use for:
  • Appointments
  • To do lists (work AND family)
  • Ideas lists (blog, marketing, joint ventures, gift ideas)
  • Tracking (exercise, water consumption)

December has arrived, for me this is when the planning really ramps up.  So today I am sharing with you the 4 main reasons I am going back to paper planning. First let me describe what I mean by planning.  Planning to me is not just a diary entry in a calendar of an appointment or event, to me planning is all about the W’s.  That is the who, what, why, when and where that goes along with any event you might schedule.  There are gifts to plan, parties and catering to plan for and all kinds of extracurricular events to remember what to take, what to prepare and even more so at this time of year. 20141201 w w w w h
