There is something about a hard-copy-pen-and-paper planner. There is something concrete and permanent about writing everything down.
Last year I got my BlackBerry Tour in hope upgrading to the technology age. It sounded great, but after a year I miss writing things down in a planner.
Sure, doing everything online is convenient (can access it anywhere) and it makes it super easy to color code everything (super organized!). But, I find myself not taking my to-do lists seriously when they are online. Something about them living “in the cloud” makes them less real. Plus, you don’t get the satisfaction of crossing something off your to-do list when you delete it online.
So I’ve decided to go back to my old-trust paper and pen planner. A few years ago my friends got me a fancy “adult” planner
So the other day I brought my handy planner off the shelf and decided to bring it back. Now I just need to decide what type of refills I need.
