I can’t function without my planner. Somehow I have a way of writing something down, and then completely forgetting what I’m supposed to do each day. Some days, It’s a struggle to be sure I’m where I’m supposed to be! It’s hard to juggle work and family, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I put everything in my planner, my appointments, mileage, to-do lists, me time… I go a little nuts when I leave it behind somewhere.
So imagine my happiness each year in late October when my favorite title company brings me my new planner! I know there are still a couple months until the next year, but I get so inspired by the fresh, clean new planner. I think of those blank pages as possible opportunities, ways to kick my career up a notch or two. I see the chance to do better and try new things and really shine. I love sitting down and making my business plan for the next year.
Perhaps it is the fact that my birthday is New Year’s Eve and each new year really is like starting fresh to me. Maybe it is the concept of New Year’s resolutions. Maybe it’s the fact that I can’t even walk into an Office Depot or Staples without looking at all that blank paper and imagining the wonderful things I could write on it.
Whatever it is, it is thrilling to me, and I’m excited to annouce that I just received my 2012 planner. I can’t wait to get started filliing those blank pages and planning to rock 2012. Let me know which day I can put you on!
