Perfectionist Planner Paralysis

Today’s the day! Today is the first day in the new 18 month Erin Condren Life Planner. Even though this is my 3rd one, I still get planner paralysis. It’s so beautiful and new and full of possibilities.

I like getting the new 18 mo planner even if I have one that lasts through the end of this year because it becomes a mid year fresh start. What are my goals? Why do I have them? How am I doing with them?

I switched layouts from vertical (after 2 years!) to horizontal in an attempt to try something new, use my brain a different way, and see if it will work better for my busy life. Now I’m paralyzed. Afraid to do something “wrong” and mess it up. It’s totally silly. Time to get past the fear and love every bit of this planner, what it will help me do, what it will help me record, and the sanity it brings to momlife.
