Keep Calm and Stay Organized

As a young women growing up in The City and attending school at the state university I always struggled with one thing: time management. Time is a limited resource we rarely take advantage of because when we have it we don't necessarily use it productively. From personal experience, time management has been a struggle especially when it came to studying for exams, completing assignments, and trying to maintain a social life. So to manage my time in an orderly fashion I have invested in two great planners to keep me on track.

My first planner is from Brittany Fuson:

The second planner I received was from Graphic Image, inc included in the gift bag from IFBCON

Both of these planners are my life. Every goal I have accomplished was because it written down in my planners. Graduation, my internship offer, career goals are all written in my planners to keep me grounded and remember what I want for myself long term. If a planner isn't for you that's okay but it has definitely benefited me in many ways. 

Throughout my day I make a mental note of  what I've done so far just so I can write it in my planner and look back on it later on. Most of my daily outings include getting my morning coffee from Starbucks, checking my email, and a list of upcoming events I plan to attend. Since I own more than one planner it may seem tedious write in all of them but for me that's how I stay organized. My planners  help me stay sane in this chaotic world and prioritize what's important.

  1. It's so weird you posted about this when I'm actually on the hunt for a good planner! Haha! I'm so terrible about keeping up with things if I don't write them down (and of course I don't!) so this is a must for me and I'm in the market!



  2. I'm glad I bet you to the punch. I literally have three planners that I use constantly but these two in this post I always have to have by my side. Finding the perfect planner takes a lot of time because you know what you like and a planner isn't just a planner. It becomes your life and without it you feel lost in a way well at least for me. I recommend going to Barnes & Nobles first and Kate Spade.
