When I share that I design and sell paper planners, this statement generally evokes one of two reactions:
“That’s amazing, I LOVE my paper planner!”
“What on earth, people still use paper planners?”
By the way, person #2, the answer is yes. Oh, yes.
But I never really get to explain WHY I use a paper planner and why I’m so darn passionate about them… obsessed to the point where I made an entire business out of them.
Here’s the thing: we’re in a world today that is run by technology.
Most of us suffer from slight (or severe) anxiety if we accidentally leave our phone at home, and we’re addicted to checking in on social media for new notifications or just to enter into a mindless period of scrolling through updates in our friends’ lives. Don’t get me wrong — technology plays a large role in my day to day tasks and business operations; but if we’re not careful, this useful device we have on hand at all times can easily become a barrier to what’s really important.
To combat this, I get back to basics: enter, paper.
Pen to paper may seem ancient to some, but is shared over and over again as the number one trick for remembering details and making your dreams and goals a reality. Write. It. Down.
The Refresh Weekly Planner was designed to do just that; act as a single, beautiful, compact tool that allows you to write down everything from your schedule and to-do lists to brainstorming sessions and goal planning. It’s a place to free yourself from the screens we stare at all day long and focus on the words and thoughts you’re putting onto paper.
