Everyone seems to be promoting a planner for the new year. There are so many choices and price ranges. My mailbox got stuffed full with all sorts of offers. I think I have tried lots of different layouts and brands over the years. The dilemma of trying to have a digital version and a paper version has always been a challenge. Many of the products have appeal for a certain styling and or components. I have always seemed to cobb something together that works that is a mashed up mess. Nothing really fits because things change so quickly and focus is hard.
I still recommend and use a free annual tool that helps look back at what worked and what did not work. It helps me stay on track every year as I start planning for what to keep or do differently.
