I've never understood how people especially parents navigate life without a planner. I went a week without mine and all HELL broke loose. No one was where they needed to be and I forgot things daily. Realizing I can't rely on my memory, I keep a few planners to help me stay on track and here is why.
Time Management: Life is short, so don't waste it trying to remember every detail
Focus: My planner allows me to focus on what is important and reduce stress
Productivity: I am definitely more productive as time is not wasted
Record Tracker: Allows me to keep track of any and all responsibilities and provides a record of completion
Feeling of Completion: It is rewarding when I am able to check something off my list as complete
