Organizing - anything - is a weakness of ADD people (like me) - this is the reason I highly interested in, and trying to make more fun, and overcomplicate most of the time :) Because the filtering function of the brain functioning weakly - we cannot see what is important, what not, start 1000 things and lost in details. We need lot more effort and organization as other. The problem with a paper planner is, that it has no notification function. You can write everything very organized and planned into your planner, but it will not say you: "hey, it's time to go!". Automation is very important for ADD people. And we are in lucky position with our smartphones, computers and smart watches.
2016 was a hard year for me. After years in my not-growing-business I decided to give a last chance and working hard and strategically. I learned a lot, and worked a lot and ignored my family a lot. I didn't had a room for work, so when we found a house we moved. This was crazy, we had 1-2 month for the whole thing. I ignored my business in this period, and after them I tried to catch up again. Not to forget I thought, I want to start a new - planner related business - I have ADD, heehee :) I started to work on this site and a business planner. The result: stress, nothing is good. I don't spend enough time with my family, I work hard in my business which doesn't growing, I'm a little bit depressed. This means, the new year goals needed big amount of thinking.
I was long time in A5, I couldn't deal with smaller sizes. I bought this Malden for a very very silly reason: I love how a personal size Malden looks like. When the new Kingfisher Blue came out I wanted it. Or not, I wanted the Fuchsia first. Then changed my mind :D So I bought the personal size because it looks better than the A5. I have two A5 size Maldens already, I know what I am talking about. I tried to downsize once and failed, now it seems to be working - I might want to stay in this binder so much? I use this I think since June.
Is planning only for business (wo)men? The most common vision about someone who uses a planner: a very busy business (wo)men, who has to plan her/his meetings, projects or travels. But is planning only for them? I don’t think so
