How to Avoid Getting Lost in Life & A Giveaway In Partnership with Design Your Life Planner / CNSDESIGNS

January 10, 2020



Hello, 2020! It's a new year, and it's a beautiful reason to start something big for yourself. Because what do we want to happen in a new year? To change. 

For my first entry this year, I would like to share with you my way of finding my way back to the right track, or the very least my pursuit of finding ways to be happy and not get sucked in by the idea that I will fail in life.

Since 2012, I have been collecting and using planners to help me organize and plan my life. Having a planner meant you'll be committed and dedicated to using it. Because this planner will be your reminder that you are doing something with your life. I know, I know. We've all been collecting Starbucks stickers every November 2nd of the year, and we all want to have that planner but at surely after getting one, we'll just put them in the pile of notebooks/planners/journals that we'll never ever use. Well, not me.

I like having a planner around me. I'd carry a big bag if I have to just so I could always have my planner within reach. Ang last year, since I was working in the hotel and handling events, I thought that I should try to use an organizer instead of a planner just so I can put more details about the needs of clients. Maybe this is better than my planner, and boy couldn't I even be more wrong.

As you can see, I am very much lost last 2019. You can see in this online diary and journal that I have mostly fucked up despite trying so hard to win at life. And I figured it's because I stopped using a planner. What? How could one planner be the reason you'll win in life?

 

Well here are some reasons why you'll need one, and how one planner could help avoid getting lost in life:

1. You keep track of your goals and your day. 

  • Having a physical thing to write and see your goals would help you envision it more. It will be where you can create a good plan on how to achieve small goals and turn them into the biggest goal of the year. 
  • What I usually do at the start of the year is that I plan it. I ask myself what I want to happen for this year, what are my expectations I would set for myself and how can I make that happen. 

2. It gives you a sense of direction.
  • Once your goal is already written in stones (or in this case, in papers) you are somehow obligated to do something about it. Seeing it every day, you're being hunted by your past self to do something for your future self. So now this time, you strategize.
  • Strategizing meant that you're already plotting the ways to achieve more things in life. May it be wake up early on a weekend. Jog before going to work. Drink 8 glasses of water. It is still a strategy to win life. And you will be reminded by this planner to celebrate those small victories.

3. It makes you committed to your goals. 
  • Keyword: COMMIT
  • Like I said in number 2, a planner is like a ghost hunting you and reminding you that you are to do something. It reminds you that you have a plan, that you have already devised a strategy to make it happen, now you just have to commit and actually DO IT. 
  • In short, a planner makes you stop procrastinating. I know. I know. It's no magic. It doesn't work that way unless YOU DO. You commit. You make it happen. You celebrate when it happens. 

And that's it. You repeat these three. PLAN. STRATEGIZE. COMMIT. And you will be reminded to be do something in life. To be something, and to be someone.
