Switching Planners (without everything falling apart)

Switching Planners (without everything falling apart)

One of the questions I get asked the most: “How do you switch planners without your whole life falling apart?”

“Playing with” planners has always made me happy, and switching planners makes me even happier. Something about setting up a new planner brings me a feeling of peace and accomplishment.

After a lot of thought, I identified five things that I do that make switching planners more fun and less stress. I hope you find it helpful!

 

The Summary:

  1. Stay in the same size and format and just switch covers.
  2. Maintain structured reviews.
  3. Leave your “old” planner set up.
  4. Use the same system in every planner.
  5. Keep long-term projects and plans in a digital calendar and/or planning app.

Six Benefits to Having a Planning System

Six Benefits to Having a Planning System

Now that you’ve seen the current setup and my planning system, I thought I’d share the top six benefits I’ve found in maintaining a planning system.

 

 

The Six Benefits, Summarized:

  1. Allows for flexibility in what materials you use to “hold” that system.
  2. Allows me to focus on completion rather than organization.
  3. Peace of Mind.
  4. Reference and Archival Purposes
  5. Fewer things fall through the cracks.
  6. Quick, custom access to what I should be doing and what I need to do it.

 

My Planning System

My Planning System

You’ve seen my setup… now here is how the system itself works.

The system keeps things going smoothly and efficiently. Regardless of what inserts or what size or what kind of planner I’m using, my system is always the same.

In this video, I walk you through how all of the pieces of my planner work together to keep me organized and on-task.

 

If using your Daily Pages as an Inbox doesn’t work for you, BrandyMichellePlans has a great idea regarding an Inbox Notebook.

October 2018 Planner Setup | Personal Rings

Autumn is finally here! (I’m ignoring the fact that it’s currently hot and muggy outside. If I ignore it, it might go away.)

Planner Happiness for me is a brown planner in the autumn. It just is. Sometimes it’s rings, sometimes it’s strings. Right now, it’s rings.

All of the links to everything in the video are listed below and in the Description Box on YouTube. If you have any questions or if I missed anything, let me know!

Thank you so much for watching!
