Be More Productive
Look how cute the picture above is. Simply punch holes for whatever system you prefer (disc, coil, binder), insert paper (plain copy paper, lined paper, or dot grid) and bind. It's simple! It's so easy and quick. Once you do it, then you can use it for whatever: sketchbook, bullet journal, notetaking. Another amazing thing is because it is so small, you can take it practically anywhere.
Until you get in the habit of looking IN your planner, leave your planner open. It's much less work on your part. Now, opening a planner isn't the most energy-laden task, but the thought of opening a planner that is filled with your to-dos can overwhelm you. Make it easier on yourself and just leave it open.
most people only use it to keep notes or quick to-do lists. Which is great, but there are so many reasons and ways to use a notebook.
