I truly believe that one of the best ways to put your mind at ease and deal with stress is to have an efficient planning system that works for you. I am a lover of the new digital world, but my brain works best when using a physical planning system. Nothing beats putting pen to paper. Over the past month, I’ve been using my Get To Work Book. Today I’ll be chatting about what I love, what I don’t, and everything in between. (This is part two of the two-part blog post series on the Get To Work Book).
As a student, its vital for me to have a place to clearly note down all my deadlines, assignment and important events throughout the school term. Having tried many planners over the years, GTWB is right up there.
What I love
I love the simple, monochromatic design. As a person who is both a lover of colour and monochrome, if I feel like a colourful spread, I can just add washi tape, stickers and doodles. For other weeks, I can stick with the monochrome. It has just the right amount of structured goal-setting and reflecting spreads without it feeling as if it takes up the whole book. I also really enjoy the vertical design of the days in the weekly spreads -perfect for long lists of tasks. The monthly calendar is also a huge bonus – its so hard to find a planner with one nowadays. And the perforated monthly print/calendar is just an added bonus. I’m not usually a fan of ring-bound books, but this binding is super sturdy and strong.
What I love less
The only criticism I have of the book is that it is a bit big and heavy to take to school every day. However, on days I really need it, it isn’t too bad, and I find a way to make a plan. (Seriously the only thing I don’t love about the planner).
If you want to invest in a high quality, effective and aesthetically pleasing planner, Get To Work Book is a goodie. As far as I know, their January – December 2018 planner is sold out, but the July 2018 – June 2019 planner drops in April.
All in all, the Get To Work Book is the perfect addition to your organizing tools, and I’d highly recommend it!
Its almost February – have a good one!
