10 Secrets to Balance: Day Designer

March 2, 2015

I’m going to be honest, if you asked me which I would rather lose, my wallet or my planner, I might actually tell you my wallet.

I write down EVERYTHING in my Whitney English Day Designer. Appointments, lists, goals, due dates. I even schedule down time or off days. I keep lists daily of tasks I want to accomplish and write down long terms goals and ways to make them happen.

Having a planner I use daily has helped me find balance because I can look ahead at my obligations and see when busy weeks are coming and be intentional about scheduling downtime or time with Matt. It also makes sure I don’t double book or overextend myself.

It took me a while to find the right planner for me, but if you’re a small business owner or seeking organization in your life, I highly recommend it. My Day Designer was given to me at the Pursuit Conference last fall in a very “Oprah” like moment (and YOU get a Day Designer, and YOU get a Day designer!). Before that, for years I used Lilly Pulitzer and Kate Spade Planners because I thought they were very pretty. The Day Designer is both pretty and very functional! One of my favorite features on the daily calendar is a place to keep up with bills and what things are due that week, which helps me keep our budget in mind.
