How I Got Out of My Planner Rut

April 09, 2016

We all go through ruts sometimes.  Recently for me it was my planner.  I rarely opened it, I didn't post any posts on here or social media, and I just felt stuck.  I tried to plan and motivate myself, but I would never follow through with my plans. I just kept thinking to myself: What am I going to do now?

All this was changed by a package of stickers,

My friend had gone to Japan earlier in the year and, knowing my love of planners and stationery, had brought me back some puffy stickers.  They were absolutely adorable!  The immediate thoughts that raced through my head were how I could put them in my Domino. I thought of dashboards, paper clips, weekly pages, and more!

Ever since I got those stickers, I have been using my planner a lot more. I have made paper clips, I have printed out inserts, I have been doing more decorated pages, and I have been way more productive. I have been posting more on Instagram, and now I am posting more on here!

The most important thing in that experience is that those stickers made me excited to use my planner again! I'm not saying you should go out and get stickers to make you more enthusiastic about your planner, but rather you do something that would encourage you to use your planner, whether it is new inserts, pens, or anything else for that matter, you should do it! One of the things that you want to get out of an organized life is happiness!
