I’ve been relishing the prospect of the process of deciding which planner to use for 2018. I’m a nerd for tools and systems that help me keep track of tasks and projects and right now I’m even more of a nerd for tools that go deeper and help me grow -- be consistent in my attempts to grow.
So I spent hours this weekend researching 19 planners! I’ve narrowed it down to three top choices now.
I hang out with people who are also nerds for tools for planning and tracking and nerds for personal growth. In fact, the list of planners I wanted to research came from discussions in a Facebook group of nonprofit directors as well as my own preliminary research on a lovely summer day when I was laid up with a badly sprained ankle and spent hours on the internet.
So, since I know so many people who are also interested, and because it sort of justifies my hours of research – not that I need my actions to be justified at all, because I’m a grown up lady and I do what I want, and not that my enjoyment of researching planners needs to serve anyone but me in order to be worthwhile – anyway, I thought I would be fun to write a post to share my research and reviews.
First, context, purpose and methodology! Gee, this really is fun already.
