New Year, Same Me January 4, 2018 05:00
Happy 2018 everyone! Before the start of every new year, I love to sit down with my planner and write in birthdays, upcoming events, and generally just get prepared for the year to come. I'll record my resolutions and goals for January, in an attempt to be accountable to myself. I'm definitely one of those people who always has good intentions but doesn't always follow through with resolutions. For example, I mentioned last year in the blog post on the Best Planner for Keeping Resolutions, that my resolution for 2017 was to make a chicken pot pie from scratch. Spoiler alert: I didn't do it. But I did discover that Costco makes a really delicious and affordable chicken pot pie that you can pass off as homemade. That's a win in my book.
In the same vein, I've had friends tell me they feel guilty because they don't use their planner consistently all through the year. I think that's a pretty natural thing, and something that we considered a lot in the development of the UPstudio Planner. Sometimes I use my own planner more days or weeks or months than others... it all just depends on what's going on currently in life. The best thing about the UPstudio Planner is that it's so versatile, you can use it as little or as much as you need to, and it's perfectly suited for any option. Most planners are very scripted, leaving the user no space to define what is needed for them, but with the UPstudio Planner, you can change its use from week to week by creating your own headings specific to your needs.
I'll likely never be 100% consistent in how I use my planner or what categories are set up from week to week - and that's exactly why this is the best planner for me (and probably for you too, you should try it out!)
