I’ve never really been much of a planner person. I’d watch as my friends saved up their stickers for that annual coffee chain planner (that they probably stop using two months into the new year anyway) and just sigh. My argument was: why would I bother with a planner when I had the calendar on my phone? It’s an extra thing to carry, decidedly analog and stuck in the past, and it takes more time to write things down than just typing them out on a keyboard. Little did I know, however, that I would realize that those three things I didn’t like about having a planner were actually the things that would make me want to use one.
