I'm not fond of spontaneity, but I still don't consider myself as a planner.
😅 If I'm being completely honest, I like to take my time to accomplish things which basically means I do it: 1) whenever I feel like it (synonymous to once in a blue moon); or 2) when it's due for submission ("Due today? Do today!" happens all the time! Huhu).
But as I grow older and as I go through (responsible) adulting, I realized that I can't be like this anymore. This phase of my life requires so much work and time that I need to take it all into account. If I don't plan out my day, the exhausting tasks will run my day instead. Stress is also a major factor because we tend to forget things easily when we're stressed out!
That's why I told myself that I will religiously list down and plan ALL the things that I need to do everyday — may it be for work, school, home errand, or just random thing. But reality check, I don't always accomplish the things listed in my planner. Yet, I'm glad to have been trying to cross it all off. Whenever I feel overwhelmed with all the simultaneous tasks at hand, I write it down one by one for me to release all the ideas in my head. Viola! I can now work more at peace!
While this isn't my first planner, its simplicity makes me do planning consistently. Been doing this everyday since late January. Yay! Cheers to all your small wins, self. The results may not be visible yet, but your progress is already an achievement. ✨❤️
