Dear Diary, where are you???

02. April 2015 life, Travel 6

Unknown-1I am an absolute diary enthusiast & dependee. I put all my info in there, it is my North star if I have any inclination to be in the right place at the correct time. I stick to my plans, prepare & I’m super organised. Anything, however trivial, goes into my diary & I do it all. It is my life guide & gives me the super power to do everything I manage to do.

Every Christmas I treat myself to a new diary & every New Years Day I take the time to transfer all my important numbers & dates into my new diary. I find it very refreshing, grounding & satisfying. My life is in order & I am in control.

My friends recognise the significance of my dairy. Any time plans are being made I whip my diary out & they know once I’ve written in pen there is no going back on our activity. I carry it everywhere. It is my wealth of knowledge & I would be lost without it.

2015. April 2015 no less & I am diary free! What the fuck!?

Maybe this is why I’m struggling to forward plan more than one week ahead??

I have a scrappy notebook which has all the hours I’ve worked this year, the 6 nations calendar & the Formula 1 calendar scrawled into it. This is the bones of my 2015 diary. I woe.

I am going to invest in a filofax. Are they worth the fuss? Will it bring centred control into my life again? Will my year suddenly come together when I have a diary in my life to focus my schedule?

    Ummm…in one short answer…yes. I worked out of a Franklin Covey for awhile, just to make sure that planning was something I’d stick with…but I finally got my Filofax and it’s my lifeline. I got my friend one, too. I sit down weekly and make it pretty (bc planner pages don’t need to be boring, right?)…and make sure everything is in there. From having my boyfriend’s kids every other weekend, to riding lessons, to meetings at work…if it’s happening, it’s in there. But, while I used to forget about stuff like baseball practice or going to collect the rent check on the first of the month, I rarely miss an appt now…I would be a soup sandwich (just imagine trying to eat one…it’d be a hot mess) without my planner…and the thing about Filo is it’s easy to find the perfect one for you, so many choices. If it’s perfect, you’re more likely to get the most out of it.

    Good luck (:

    Yes! Get a Filofax! I got one in 2012 and my life has been transformed since. I love how you can customise it fully to your needs rather than needing to stick with a binding planner. Do it, you’ll never look back… And who knows, it may just u least a creative side to you that you never realised you had!
    Word of warning though… They can get rather addictive 😉
    Have fun!

    You should definitely get a filofax! Or some kind of ringed binder (there are plenty on the market)! I am very disorganised by nature and my planner helps me a lot. Have fun

      Thanks! I’m going to wait until get back to Ireland to get one! Switzerland is too expensive for me!
