Should you keep a Planner?

Planners, organizers, post-its have simply not been my thing. Since the beginning of time, I have trusted my brain to retain all information and dates. Clearly, I should have ‘estimated’ my brains capacity and not ‘overestimated’ it.

I am a Senior now, but have inculcated the habit of keeping and maintaining a planner since my Freshman year. Some of you may think…WHY? Seems like I was doing fine without a planner all my life up until then. I found out, I would block the whole day on account of an event in my head even though it may only last for a couple hours. I would end up losing, wasting, abusing my time for no good reason on most days. But with simplistic changes in my habits and outlook on planners, I was able to change that!

Being able to block times, manage, and tweak scheduling  doesn’t only add to fun but definitely makes one more efficient. This semester, I feel on top of my game. I have had some great training in time-management, planning and recollection. Writing down things on a piece of paper has always been the advice instead of trying to test your retention skills. I believe, maintaining a planner brings the person some peace of mind with the sense of self-esteem.

Personally, I have been able to do better with a planner. But hey…”each to his own“. But that’s the next thing I am touching on. Planners also reflects a part of ones personality. If I am carrying a tacky, glittery, magenta-colored file, I am naturally going to be associated with more upbeat, jolly or amped up personas. On the other side, if I have a leather hardcover, black, chic planner I am most likely to be associated with a straightforward, one-way thinking persona.

Hope you all grab a planner and start setting your priorities this year!
