When I'm drowning in work, it's nice to have something special that, while being an excellent tool to help you organize and plan your tasks, gives you a boost as well. My planners make me happy because they are beautiful to look at and work with.
As a new mom with a pretty set routine for myself and yet a constantly changing day with a newborn, I love that my planner had a full page every week where I could write all my to-dos and prioritize them without setting a specific time to do each thing.
Without knowing your "why", you will not succeed in the long game. Once you have that goal fixed in your everyday thought process, it drives all the tasks you preform or delegate to others.
For the first time in six years I have planner peace. Truly. My system is down to a science and planning is effortless, yet I'm always learning ways to be more specific with my system and therefore more productive in my life.
The planning system not only helps me plan for events in the future but it also serves as a journal for the things I have done in the past. This is priceless for me! In the 35 years I have used a Franklin Planner, I have never lost information that I have written in it.
Our greatest asset is our time here on this earth and planning empowers us to use our time efficiently.
In 2020, I realized everything I was trying was just not functional or helping me be productive. I decided to go back to the system I know works.
I took a free course and then I really fell in love with a Franklin Planner. It was exactly what I was looking for for so long…
Planning is not a behavior [that is] common here in Africa, but I got to know how effective planning can be.
What I love most about the Franklin system is that it’s value-based. Those first exercises in the training of identifying my values and what that looks like in my life was life changing.
