So it hurt a little bit inside when I made the decision to move over from a beautiful hard cover diary to using an online calendar.
I had tried it before, and missed my diary so much that I went back to my gorgeous Paperblanks diary. It was my third double-booking in as many weeks that pushed me back towards the online function, because I found I was much more organised (and my handbag much lighter) if I had appointments in an online space that I could use on my phone.
I believe the humble (yet stunningly tactile) paper journal or diary is still a great way to help you stay organised and can easily be used in conjunction with your online calendar. Here are 7 reasons why…
I use a combination of online and paper. Online for planning my time. Paper for taking and making notes, brainstorming ideas, planning out bigger picture goals and giving my eyes a rest from the screen for a while. I also write my weekly and daily tasks out in a paper diary so that I can really get a feel for what’s happening when (coloured highlighters and sticky notes essential!).
Viva beautiful stationary!
That is all.
P.S. If you want to buy me a pressie, you can’t go wrong with a beautiful journal or notebook 🙂
