Good Morning! It is the first business day of 2017! For some, it is a wake up call that all of the festivities and vacations are over. For others, it is a clean slate and promise for new and spectacular year!
Which group do you fall into?
Either way, you need a plan….which means you need a planner.
More than a quarter century ago I was in the corporate world and had a DayTimer. It was a 5 ring, leatherette, monstrosity that held your life. Everything from Phone numbers, business cards to grocery lists and budgets. Think of it as your 8X10 SmarTphone. In this instance though, if you lost it you couldn’t replace it and hope your contacts were in a cloud. The beauty of it was that every year around Halloween you would receive in the mail next year’s Edition. A clean slate.
Today, my life is on the smartphone but my hopes, dreams, projections and meals are in my Happy Planner.
It was August and I had a 50%, 40% and a 25% off entire purchase coupons for Michael’s. They had a huge and inviting display of Happy Planners and I felt like I had gone back in time! I purchased the planner, a meal and budget insert plus the hole punch.
But what in the world were all of these stickers, tape, stampers and embellishments for? DayTimer never had these!
I listen and follow a lot of Resellers on YouTube. It has become my ‘co-worker’ in a lonely day of reselling. It wasn’t too long before I heard others saying they had bought one and showing off their creations designed with markers, tape and stickers. Oh, they were beautiful but I was sticking to my New and Improved DayTimer look.
It wasn’t until SisterDay (another future blog, I promise) last week that I gave in and became a part of the Happy Planner craze. My sister and I planned our weeks and began embellishing our pages!
I finally understand the real reason that women are buying a HappyPlanner! It is a thing of beauty that is created by you. I look at it in the middle of the day and it’s like a double shot of caffeine in my tea. It encourages me to keep going, be better than I was yesterday ….. and start dinner!
