I’m a former cheater. We should go ahead and just get that out of the way first.
I have been consistently unfaithful when it comes to picking a planner and sticking with it for 12 solid months. I know I’m not alone in this. I’m not the only one to ever pick a planner, fall madly in love with it, feel organized and like your life serves a purpose for 5 minutes, haphazardly visit Target and end up with an entirely different planner a month later. That has been the rhythm of my life for a long time and I am betting there are some people out there who do just the same.
The good thing about being unable to stick with a planner for 12 months? You date a lot of planners. You know what’s out there. Eventually, the romance of a new planner with crisp pages wears off. Sticking with a planner isn’t some whimsical “this is the one” feeling sweeping you up. You survey your options. You pick one. You write things down. You repeat. And you stop allowing yourself to look at other options. It’s basically marriage.
