Paper Planners Overview and Benefits


0:00:08.880,0:00:16.560
So one of the things that i've gone back
to is using a paper planner after using a

0:00:16.560,0:00:20.880
digital planner for many many years. And the
reason for that is, there is something about

0:00:21.680,0:00:28.800
writing things down, especially as a creative 
person or as a somebody who has mild add,

0:00:29.520,0:00:37.920
that really just helps me clarify my thinking and 
in a way that just doing it digitally doesn't do.

0:00:38.560,0:00:45.440
It also takes away a lot of the distractions of
working exclusively in a digital space because

0:00:45.440,0:00:51.680
I could be sitting there in Todoist if i'm on my
computer putting in my to do's and something might

0:00:51.680,0:00:57.520
pop up if i don't have my notifications turned 
off, and or something like that, and i can end up

0:00:57.520,0:01:02.640
being distracted. There's just something about
sitting down, and i usually do this on the sofa,

0:01:02.640,0:01:10.560
writing things down, imagining my day...visualizing
my day, setting priorities, putting pen to paper...

0:01:10.560,0:01:19.360
that just works with me, with my mind, with my brain.
So everything I do starts on paper first! And once

0:01:19.360,0:01:25.440
i've written it in either the Productivity Planner
or the Full Focus Planner, I then transfer that to

0:01:25.440,0:01:32.320
Todoist for my digital synchronization with
my Pomo Timer. So if you've not used a paper

0:01:32.320,0:01:37.760
planner the two that i recommend are the 
Full Focus Planner by Michael Hyatt Company

0:01:39.440,0:01:44.960
and the Productivity Planner by Intelligent
Change. And i'm going to go through both of

0:01:44.960,0:01:49.840
these and talk about some of the benefits and 
why you might prefer the Full Focus Planner

0:01:49.840,0:01:57.280
or the simplified Productivity Planner, and then
you can choose which one might work best for you.
