Although it is the last week of January, it is technically still the beginning of the new year so I thought I would share some of the ways in which I am getting organized this year. I love the beginning of a new year and all the hope and anticipation it brings. I'm not a big new year's resolution type of person, but I do like to make both personal and professional goals. This year I decided to make fewer goals, but goals that were meaningful to me. For each goal I also wrote down concrete ways in which I will achieve them. (Wish me luck!) Achieving goals definitely means I have to be organized with my time and what better way to get organized then by using well-designed planners, calendars, and notepads. I'm fortunate to live in Korea, home of super cute (and functional) paper goods.
I love my Big Monthly Planner, this guy is 12"x16.5" with huge squares to jot things down. I use this to plan out my workflow for the week, marking down my work schedule and project deadlines.
I bought this black Muji planner earlier this month so it was 30% off. It has a nice suede cover and my favorite thing about it is it has the individual months in the front of the planner and then the rest is a weekly calendar. One side of the weekly calendar are the days of the week and the other is a blank grid paper which is convenient to jot down notes or sketches. I've also been using this erasable pen in my planner. Although this is my all-time favorite pen, I love being able to erase anything I want in my planner. And as you can see I use plenty of sticky tabs and sticky notes in my planner.
