As readers of my blog know, I have struggled for years with actually getting organized. I have been through every planner or planning method I could find over the years!
I have found something that finally works! I have downloaded the PDF Version of the Best Self Company’s Best Self Planner. The PDF and the Best Self Journal are meant to be used as a paper planner but those don’t work for me so I converted the PDF into a digital planner by importing the PDF into the Goodnotes app on my IPAD! This is actually working for me! I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and I am making continual progress on my goals for the next three months!

The journal keeps me focused on the important things and to celebrate the stuff I did get done that day/week so that I don’t focus all the time on the stuff I haven’t gotten to yet but instead spend some time celebrating what I did finish! This helps me to not get discouraged by all that still needs to be done.
I also like the gratitude sections to help me appreciate what I have and the good things in my life. I thought when I first started using the BSJ (Best Self Journal) that this would be one of those sections I wouldn’t really use but I do enjoy it. I am feeling better now. Even when things don’t go as planned, the Gratitude Sections help me to be thankful and hopeful instead of always thinking of what I don’t have or what I want for the future. Sometimes you just need to refocus so that you can appreciate the now and not always be thinking of what you can have in the future. I need to focus on appreciating the journey and not the end result some of the time.
More to come soon,
