It will be a brand new year in a few days and I can hardly wait! I always have such high hopes for the New Year, as I see it as an opportunity to curb bad habits and make some life improvements. It is all about starting fresh and leaving behind all the negative things from the past year. There is just so much to look forward to–it is time to make plans, write resolutions, and jot down dreams, ideas and inspirations. So of course, its is also time to get a new planner!
I’ve always preferred writing things down to using technology. Its just so much more reliable this way. I usually keep a planner for my daily schedule, and have a notebook with me so I can easily write down notes/ideas/to-do-lists. I’m not sure if its because I grew up using organisers (or file-o-faxes/planners), but its just easier for me to plan my daily schedule this way. Having a planner is just more tangible–I can look at my schedule anytime even if my phone’s battery dies. The only way it doesn’t work for me is if I leave it at home, otherwise its a great way to keep track of my meetings, events, shoots, and deadlines.
Finding one that works is essential. I usually require a planner that shows my schedule for the week and for the month, with plenty of writing space. I also need extra pages to write information, notes, etc. I was just about to shop for my 2014 planner when Belle De Jour sent over three of their super planners: Belle De Jour Power Planner, Everything Is Possible 2014, and Navi 2014. I compared one planner from the other, and let me say, each one is different but all are such complete organisers. They are such a joy to fill out and offer so much more than your regular schedule book. For instance, the Belle De Jour Power Planner has over P40,000 worth of coupons inside the planner while the Navi 2014 carries over P25,000 worth of coupons. Each planner also offers its own unique layout to suit your taste–there’s one for the girly-girl (BDJ Power Planner), for the fun and colourful (Everything is Possible), and for the adventurous traveller (Navi 2014).
