Design a Life You Love
Susana Cresce has designed the planner that I’ve been dreaming about for years. Not only is the planner in my favorite pattern, polka dots, but every page inside it is what I’ve been dreaming a planner would have for years.
Over the years I’ve always makeshifted my planners to be exactly the way I want them. Which means that I’d write my goals for the week, month, etc. in the same spot I planned my week. This planner is a dream because the goal spot I’ve been creating in my planners for years is simply included on the page!!!! *CUE ALL THE CHEERING!!!*
There’s a spot for accountability for all of those to-do lists and goals you’re always making. Besides, who doesn’t love checking the box once you’ve completed something? Ah, the satisfaction of finishing a task and crossing it off your list.
I love a well-designed planner. I’ve been using planners since the 6th grade. Each year I hunt to find one that will continue to work better and better to design a life I love.
Okay, okay, maybe I’m a little too excited about planners, but I have Discipline as my number one StrengthsFinder Signature Theme.
Discipline: Your world needs to be predictable. It needs to be ordered and planned. So you instinctively impose structure on your world. You set up routines. You focus on timelines and deadlines. You break long-term projects into a series of specific short-term plans, and you work through each plan diligently.
Planning is how I get things done. I also have Activator as my number two StrengthsFinder Signature Theme which means that everything I write in my planner I will accomplish (No Peter, don’t think I don’t know your handwriting when you write “buy Peter Breville Espresso Machine” in my to-do area. My “Activator” does come with common sense built in). Making it happen is exciting for me!
When one uses a planner they can plan their lives with intention. It is possible to create time to do the things you love.
It’s how I find time to make this blog happen! If it wasn’t for my planner, digital calendars, and post-it notes, I wouldn’t be as productive or fulfilled in the workplace or in my personal life.
The Susana Cresce planner is the planner I’m excited to use for the rest of 2017 and all of 2018 and I really hope Susana Cresce continues to release such beautiful planners in years to come. It’s well worth the investment.
