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.
