As an artist I am disorganized with my stuff, and most of all with my sched– sometimes I mess it all up in my head. So its vital for me to track it in a planner. My mom used to give me those datebooks back at 1st year high school and I then developed an initiative to buy myself one before or on the start of the schoolyear. From Hallmark planners to DLS-CSB planners, I then switched to Total Girl’s planners which are really waaaaaaay too cute and artsy.
Keeping a planner helps you track down your goals, your schedule, and give time for other stuffs. It also keeps you disciplined especially whenever you stick to your written schedule and helps you organize your thoughts.
