I make the same old resolutions year after year. You know lose weight, exercise more, etc… Sometimes I have lost the resolve before January 2! I know people who plan everything, write lists keep track of appointments and they do it all on their phone. Usually I just let life take its course. I make a grocery list and forget it. Clip coupons only to find the other brand is still cheaper. I have always wanted to be organized, a planner and list maker, I have all the stuff and it grows each year. I have bought some expensive planners. When I see my beautiful planner I can’t write in it because I don’t want to yuck it up with my ugly handwriting. What if I write down an appointment and have to change it, then I will have to scratch it out or slop it up with white out. I know, you say use a pencil. My only argument there is I want to use ink! Anyway the “planner” I always use is the dollar store flimsy plastic calendar. I don’t care if it’s all marked up, or yucked up. I start the year with 3. One for home that stays close by the phone area. One is smaller to travel in my purse or bag. And of course one is for my resolution to lose weight and track my progress. That has to be separate so I can put it in a secure location.
I have my planners ready and my plan is to plan!
