You’d never try to hammer a nail with a bar of soap or bake a cake in a car engine. Yet so often when it comes to planning and organizing our lives, we use the wrong tools and are surprised when things don’t work out!
But how do you know if you’re using the right tool?
Here are five telltale signs that you have the wrong planner!
Sign #1: You can’t shake the vague feeling of guilt.
Do you often go to bed at night feeling like you just aren’t doing enough? For every item crossed off the to-do list another five get tacked on the end and you just can’t seem to stay caught up. When you look at your planner you begin to feel even more overwhelmed and behind on your tasks. It’s frustrating and it’s disheartening.
A lot of planners are great for holding dates and appointments, but they fall short of helping you in the trenches of everyday life. The Daily Sweet Life Planner is there for you every day of the year. You don’t have to do it all in order to feel accomplished. Using the daily planning pages in the Sweet Life Planner will help you prioritize your tasks so you can have confidence day in and day out that you’re getting the right things done.
Sign #2: You have tried and abandoned LOTS of planners in the past
If this sounds like you, you probably already know that you’re using the wrong planner. But maybe you’re wondering if you gave up too soon and if the perfect planner is sitting somewhere in that stack of half used planners. After all, these systems look so perfect on Pinterest and Instagram and you may be wondering what’s wrong with you and why they just aren’t working for you.
Here’s the thing about a lot of planners on the market: they are cookie-cutter solutions to complex and diverse questions. You and your needs are unique, and your planner should match that special spark that only you carry. The Sweet Life Planner is a discbound, planning system – completely customizable around your needs and life. When you purchase a Sweet Life Planner you aren’t just buying another bound notebook of calendars. This planner offers a proven process to set goals and make life changes that truly last.
Sign #3: Every planner you’ve seen is missing at least one thing you’re dying to have
Let me assure you that I have been right where you are if you are having thoughts similar to these. There is no all-in-one planner that I have found that checks all of my dream planner boxes. I wanted more than a weekly schedule but the planners that offered daily planning scrunched the weekends up onto one page and I hated seeing the empty pages on days that I’d missed.
Enter, the discbound system. (If you’re new to the discbound system, click here for a quick overview.) The Sweet Life Planner uses a unique, flexible disc binding system that allows you to easily add and remove pages. Want to meal plan one week but have a family vacation the next? You can put your weekly meal plan exactly where you want it – and remove it from exactly where you don’t want it! You have the ability to make your Sweet Life Planner truly your own and a tool that matches your beautifully busy life.
Sign #4: You don’t enjoy using your planner
When using the wrong planner, planning can become wearisome and tedious. Your days begin to feel like a chore and you flip through pages and pages of drab looking work schedules and dental cleaning reminders. If your planner looks dull, it’s no wonder you may begin to think that your day to day life is dull too.
You need a planner that matches the excitement and zest for life that you have while still being a useful tool. The Sweet Life Planner combines function and style with pages upon pages of goal setting and planning resources in bright and cheerful colors with stickers and illustrations to keep you motivated and smiling all year long.
Sign #5: You don’t remember the last time a new habit stuck
You have a lot of dreams and goals, but every time you start a new workout routine, take up an old hobby yet again, or try one more time to really dig into meal planning, things start fall flat after just a few weeks. This can lead to a lot of self-doubt and uncertainty about your own abilities. But so often when tackling a new dream, we try and jump straight to the end goal without realizing we missed all the steps that will get us there.
The Sweet Life Planner is based around consistent, daily action. And I believe that every day gives you a fresh start. Whether you choose the weekly or the daily Sweet Life Planner you will be given the resources you need to try again each new day to reach your goals one step at a time.
I believe that with the right tools and an attitude that, succeed or fail, always says, “I will try again tomorrow” – you can make 2020 the start of your best decade yet. The time for you to start living your best life is now. The Sweet Life Planner is ready and waiting to guide you along the way, and you can get yours today by clicking here.
