What planning & organization means to me.
Planning means different things to different people. One person may use planning as way to manage at home tasks (especially now during the COVID-19 outbreak) or one person will use it to schedule business appointments or other work related tasks.
For me personally,
Planning is more than just a notebook to write down appointments or jot down to-dos that we have to do. For me, it’s a way for me to write down my goals (business and personal); a way for me to curb anxiety (over 99.9% of people who use planners face day-to-day anxiety); an outlet for me to write down personal feelings or projects without feeling judged. I could also change my routine without any consequences.
Admittedly, I haven’t always used a planner. When I was younger, I always used to journal. Journaling allowed me to write out my dreams and jot down inner frustrations. It also allowed for me to do minor scrapbooking (this was before I learned what Pinterest was). As time grew and I realized that I had more adulting responsibilities, I realized that I didn’t have a lot of my priorities together or a set schedule. Sure, I was working and going to school, but what about a daily schedule? I didn’t understand the importance of having a set schedule until I started having anxiety attacks regularly.
I started planning in 2016 and my first planner was a Happy Planner. As I started to plan more, I realized that there were others, like myself, who faced similar issues and needed a set schedule. I meet so many others and was able to begin my love of making planner dividers for others to enjoy and share. This love has made DividersRUS what it is today and the ability to share with others.
