How To Be Successful Using More Than One Planner

When it comes to putting together a system that works for you, there’s no right or wrong way.

But whatever structure you choose for yourself, it needs to make sense and be effective.

Until now, I’ve restricted myself to one or 2 planners (I went back and forth in 2017, but around the second half of the year, I had to bring my hourly Erin Condren back in action).

For 2018, though, I’ll use a totally different strategy.

Whether it’s officially written on our calendars or if we secretly hide our intention in our head, overbooking is a habit for many of us.

Why You Need A Realistic To-do List To Be More Productive

Raise your hand if you have already had a daily to-do list that would require you about 72 hours to be completed?


Why do we do that to ourselves?

A packed task list only serves to make us:

  • frustrated
  • overwhelmed
  • stressed
  • procrastinate

In other words, it doesn’t offer any benefits at all.

Find out how you can start creating lists that will support your efficiency instead of making you feel about yourself.
