Why I went back to a paper planner?

It’s that time of the year, when people start making their plans and/or goals for the upcoming year. Along with that, people decide what type of planner to use.

Nearly a year ago, I decided to make the shift from using a electronic planner (Google Calendar on desktop and iPhone)  as my primary calendar to a paper planner.

Why?

Writing it down is the start to making it happen.
My nana always says to write it down so that I won’t forget (her shopping list). This also works with ideas, appointments, meetings and planning.

I chose a paper planner to see the big picture, not just to make it through the day. If I focus on making it through the day, then that will always be my focus. If I look at the big picture, I can be sure to take definitive conscience steps to move towards my goals.

I still use Google Calendar as a backup. Now,  I mainly use it for directions.

Have you chosen your calendar for the new year? If so, is it paper planner or an electronic one?
