Organization Boosts Your Creativity!
Using the artist day planner and achieving your artistic goals faster can go hand in hand. What better time than right now to begin using this wonderful organizational tool?
Day planners are enormously helpful if you want to stay organized. It's quite a challenge for me to store and remember appointments, daily events, and all those chores that just have to be completed. I would much rather be able to direct all my attention to creating my art while I am painting. And then, when I am done, I know just where to look to make sure my day doesn't get away from me.
More Is Not Always Better.
Personally, I've tried the new, wonderful electronic versions, but I haven't had good results. The mental and physical process of keeping appointments, goals and personal information in electronic devices, while quite common today, just doesn't seem like a good fit for me. It doesn't seem to flow. Is this true for you, as well?
I wonder if artists sometimes appreciate having the tactile sensation of writing in a book, seeing their own handwriting, and being able to turn pages. Because I love the natural world, I love the natural feel of the day planner I use.
It used to be different when I was not working professionally as an artist, and I worked in the corporate world. A large desk calendar held all the appointments, meetings and vacation/sick leave time. Now that I'm working from home, I'm happy to be able to reduce my calendar size.
Which Page Layout Is Best for You?
Many years ago, I received a brown, leather day runner. Ever since then, I've used it to keep appointments, etc. Choosing the type of day planner page is important. There are many different types, so you may want to compare them. My personal choice displays 3 days on one side and 4 days on the other side. This type of planner is flat, so you can see the whole week at once on the open page. Also included in this type of day planner are calendars of the present month, next month and year.
I like that they also feature pages for personal notes, where I can keep information from sizes to grocery lists at my fingertips. This type of day planner is all you need to become more efficient, keep your goals on track and achieve the organized life you want to live.
Although the paper day planner is probably the oldest way of planning, I believe that it is the fastest, easiest way to keep your day, week, month or year moving in an orderly fashion! It certainly is for me.
I welcome your comments about your favorite ways of keeping your artistic day running smoothly.
