Planning is an essential part of my life and every day as a student, blogger, and influencer.
I am type A so it is essential for me to plan, create tasks, form my goals for the week, and form my to-do list.
Because planning is something I love to do it is important to me that I have a planner that I love.
This process is extremely difficult though.
I remember when I was about 12 going to an office store with my dad and helping him find a planner for work. We were in the store for hours and he ended up not finding one, as a kid I didn't understand and thought he was crazy with a capital C!
But as a young adult and a mini version of my dad.
I GET IT!
MY STEPS TO THE "PERFECT PLANNER"
Firstly, I look for a planner with a clear cover that allows me to put my own design in the front. For my design I chose my blog name of course in my favorite shade of pink and duh cow hide print!
If you don't know, I LOVE COWS!
Second, I grab my two planner essentials to stay motivated and excited to plan my life.
These two items include colorful pens - I prefer the Sharpie pens in fun colors.
And my all time favorite - planner stickers! These keep my planner colorful and creative and make me excited to design it to how I want it. I prefer the agenda 52 stickers which you can get online or at Hobby Lobby.
Here is a look at a 'calm' week for me.
My tips for planning:
1. Color coat your classes & tasks
2. Use stickers for large events and to remind yourself
3. Plan 3 goals for the week
4. Keep it as simple as possible
5. Check it off when it's done.
For myself planning can get complicated and stressful so it's important that I stay as organized as possible. For my planner layout I prefer there to be lines for each day, boxes with a checklist on items, room for e to write my goals, and room for weekends.
