Overplannered

I might get in trouble for this, because my wife is in the planner business. (Seriously, she works at wellplannedgal.com and makes planners.) But I think I’m overplannered.

Not overplanned. But I sit here, and I’ve got a great big calendar on the wall, two different apps on the Mac, an Android phone, a smart watch, and 4 different paper planners. All of which use different systems. In other words, I’ve got too much stuff to have any idea what’s going on in my world.

So, as an observation: you need a system of keeping yourself organized. That much is absolutely true. But you don’t need two systems. It’s like the old proverb that a man with one watch knows what time it is, but the man with two has no idea. The man with 4 calendars doesn’t know where he was supposed to be last Tuesday.

This is my thought: get a system and use it. Stick with it. I need a calendar/planner for events and my week flow guide. I’ll develop the latter a bit more in another post. But don’t chase every “awesome” planner. Find one you can use and work it.

Because working a plan is more important than planning a plan and replanning a plan.
