Okay, so maybe not exactly everyone should use a paper planner. If you are one of those people who loves your Google calendar and phone alerts then maybe paper isn't for you. Maybe I'm just tired of all the people that tell me paper planners are obsolete and I should definitely go digital, because I'm here to tell you that digital is not where it is at for me in calendars and planners.
I would never show up anywhere. Believe me, I've tried the digital thing. Google calendar and me are not friends. At work, I try to use it, sort of. At least, I get alerts to go teach my class (set up by the department secretary), and my students will sometimes send me their calendars for scheduling. But mine hasn't been updated for several years.
A paper planner is the only way I can keep my life together. So paper it is.
Now, I've already written extensively about the paper planners I've used in recent years and their pros and cons. Today I'm going to tell you all the reasons why I keep using one, even as everyone around me goes completely digital. (Also, be sure to read to the end of this post where I will be giving away one of my favorite planners--giveaway ends March 3.)
