|My new planner!|
School has started. Which means back to getting lots of emails every day and having countless things to do. I do love being busy, but it's a lot to handle at times. Thank goodness for my agenda.
I've used a planner since 6th grade and the only thing that's changed is my handwriting :) I write down everything I need to do and every event/meeting I need to go to so that I don't forget. If I don't write it down, it probably won't happen. I know a lot of people use Google Calendars or iCal, but I don't trust technology with my plans (life) and still use the old fashion method of pen and paper.
Once I complete the task, I highlight it -- it provides a sense of accomplishment and motivates me to finish what I need to!
As a back to school present to myself, I got a brand new Lilly Pulitzer planner yesterday! I first learned of these from Sheila, another super organized student. It's the best planner I've had and I love this year's choices. They even have a lighter, soft back version (which is what I bought).
How do you stay organized?
