Hi my name is Judy and I am married to Mr. Organized Planner. He is really, really, really a Daytimer user of more years than I can honestly remember. He is so faithful at keeping a planner I even think he has a back up system for planning. After years of my husband encouraging me to get a planner and years of failing to keep one successfully I finally surprised him last year and we went planner shopping, my idea! After he recovered from the shock we picked out a planner that fit my requirements. It had to fit in my purse, the whole month had to be visible, the blocks for each day had to be big enough so I could write more than one action item, etc, etc.
I found out a planner really was a blessing and helped me keep track of our busy schedules without surprise collisions. I can honestly say I used it quite regularly, I'm not as judicious as my husband is but I'm getting the idea. So just the other day I bought my 2010 planner. After a year I could tell better what I needed and made a few changes in my selection. Like my husband said "If you don't like this one you can always get another one before next year."
I chose a Bible verse which I wrote on the inside of last year's cover:
"So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom."
If you have never gotten into the planner routine may I encourage you to try it? You may surprise yourself and really see it's great worth.
Happy New Year!
Good bye 2009 planner!
