Planning 2017

So, my 2017 planner arrived last week. Yes, I still use a paper planner. I started using it again a after reading Lee Cockerell’s book Time Management Magic . I’m such a procrastinator that I needed a new system. He highly recommends paper planners in addition to your phone one. I switched to this (Startplanner) one because it has a built in to-do list and lots of them to help organize.

I feel like my entire life is always next year. I’m currently scheduling events for 2017 for work. I’m currently planning my 2017 race calendar. I’m currently waiting on event dates for friends weddings/life events/showers/etc so I can plan things around them.

I feel like I’m always getting ahead of myself but that’s my job! I guess in a way that’s also life. Now I start planning out 2017 goals, hopeful achievements, and measurements of success. In a way it is kind of depressing. What didn’t you accomplish in the previous year. What do you want out of things? Why is nothing coming to mind? Why do I not have some overwhelming obstacle that I need to overcome? Why am I being whiny?

I guess I just can’t believe we are at the end of another year already. SO talk with me! What are your goals for 2017? What are you already planning?
