I hate putting to do lists in my planner. If I am unable to accomplish what is on the list, it stares at me accusingly. It makes me feel guilty. It makes me feel lazy and it makes me feel bad.
I see other planners all the time adding their ombre heart checklists and marking them off. Why can’t I do that? Am I expecting too much? Am I just doing too little?
See, these are things we shouldn’t feel about our planners. Planners should help us, not be a reminder of what we didn’t do. It shouldn’t judge or condemn, yet that is what I feel the to do list in my planner does to me.
What’s the answer? Well I write in what I did do. I keep my to do list in a separate notebook or on a piece of paper. This helps. I love using my planner, I just don’t want to feel bad every time I look at it.
Tell me how you feel about your to do list in your planner.
Until next time.
