Why do you plan?

Welcome to Day 80 of my #100DaysofBulletJournalIdeas Project! 

Idea 80: Consider why you plan

Why Do I Plan?

Why do you plan? It's a simple question at face value, but when you get into it, it helps you zero-in on why you're doing what you're doing.

What is it about planning that helps you on a daily basis?

Do you plan every day or as needed?

Do you find planning helps you? In what ways?

For some, planning helps them see what's coming up ahead and that allows them to prepare accordingly.

It can also be a form of reducing inner stress by writing down what you need to do. 

The process itself is therapeutic and empowering to get down actionable steps.

I've noticed some Bullet Journalists sometimes stop Bullet Journaling because they don't know why they're doing it anymore. That's fair. It's not for everyone if they don't, or can't, find meaning in it.

Writing down reasons can help you understand why you're planning. Making it as a collection to turn to when you're feeling a bit lost or stressed can also help. 

I recommend creating a list of reasons why you plan, you could title it, "Why I plan." Consider how it helps you productively, and more importantly how it makes you feel.
