If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Most of us know this to be true, so why do we still tend to flutter through life overwhelmed and avoiding action?
There are a variety of methods to keep your schedule on track and get more done each day. Some women prefer to keep everything digital, which is totally fine. I, on the otherhand, still prefer good ol’ paper and pen. Throw in a variety pack of hi-liters and it’s basically heaven.
I used to be the queen of the organized planner.
How do you think I made it all the way through medical school with some of my sanity?
However, it seems like the second I started having babies, my ability to stay organized and keep a schedule completely fell apart.
I now envy my husband’s seamless ability to keep to do lists, and get shi* done.
For 2020, I’m officially on the hunt for the perfect planner, and I’ve rounded up some of the best planners for busy moms.
Let this be the year that you make a plan, set goals, and take care of you!
Say goodbye to survival mode, and start tackling your to do list, with these beautiful, goal oriented planners for 2019.
