A woman with a plan is a woman you don't f*ck with. She probably has a mean "professional" pop off reserved for emails to drive points across to clueless co-workers. She's bossy in the best way possible with the spirit of a hustler.
Now, if she also happens to wield a planner, she's next to untouchable, undefeatable — she's on a mission and you aren't stopping a damn thing. There's absolutely no time for nonsense, so if that's what you've come for, "Go home, Roger."
Those of us who've ever had a good idea know that a plan doesn't necessarily equate to a well thought out plan. It damn sure doesn't mean organized. From entrepreneurial endeavors and 9-to-5 to hobbies and date nights — a busy girl knows that a well-organized planner is the center of her Universe, at least if she's wise.
Not just any planner will do, though! Planner addicts reading this will take one glance at their planner graveyard and know exactly what I mean when I say, "Every planner is not your planner." You must take into account how you write, your organizational style, flexibility (pre-dated vs. dated as you go), and overall style. Personally, I'm more excited to use my planner if it looks cute. It's the same reason we go out and buy cute workout clothes, you have to feel good using it.
If you've yet to find one that truly speaks to you, don't panic! Here are 6 planners that will help you level up your boss all year.
Career Girl Daily recognizes that for some of us, using one planner for everything is a deal breaker. They have created four planners to meet the girl on the go right where she is. From fitness goals to daily goals, they've got you covered. The "Getting Stuff Done" planner provides a space to plan for your everyday sh*t, is totally undated, and tracks your meals plus water intake to ensure that your priorities include major acts of self-care. Additionally, there's space for a shopping list, which is something too many of us forget to do when we're on the move.
This planner doesn't have a set template for your planning, so if you're a person who is most productive when you go the old school route and create a to-do list on loose leaf paper — this is that but with a sophisticated, fun flare that meets all of your needs.
