2020 was fast! I remember the same time last year, I was planning how my life in 2020 will be. There were upcoming events in January and February, and poof, March turned it all around.
I am still hopeful for 2021, I do not know, but it excites me; hence I even got myself planners, because I love them.
Next year, I will be using three planners – BDJ Power Planner, BDJ Essential Planner, and the first time the one-liner journal.
BDJ Power Planner
I skipped a year when I started bullet journaling, but one planner isn’t enough, right?
For the 2021 edition, I love this particular page. It’s a fixer-upper and perfect for a year-end summary. You will still find the OG pages like the menstrual tracker, IKIGAI, 2021 Goals, and Dream Board.
To be honest, I have not really maximized the pages because I am embarrassed about what I will write. This time around, I filled it in.
No what-ifs, no buts.
I am planning to use the BDJ Power Planner for my personal growth and reflection. I have used it as a master planner before, but design-wise, it is best to use it as a journal slash goal-setting slack raincheck kind of planner.
BDJ Essential Planner
This will be my master to-do planner, as you can use it for Bullet Journaling. I usually get a plain dotted notebook, but I cannot calculate how many sheets I need for the year. I cannot create a monthly overview correctly.
With the essentials planner, you can still get the flexibility and creativity of a Bullet Journal. You can customize your week and use the prompts you have been using from your old bujo.
The dotted sheets make it easier to draw borders and boxes; use keys, and doodle cute stuff that you like.
Passion 1 Line Journal
This planner is one of the exciting planners I am gonna try for next year. It is called 1 line, 365 days, 5 years. For the next five years, you will be documenting your days in one line.
I want to use it to document my motherhood journey and see how I will grow as a person while nurturing a human being.
I also want to witness how the world will evolve in the next five years as we shifted to the “new normal” and pregnancy wave for next year.
The new generation and the future
We may never know what will happen this year, but I encourage everyone to still look forward to new beginnings as it will surprise us one way the other.
Planners seem to be superficial in keeping our shit together. Still, it documents our growth, aspirations, and dreams that we unhurriedly turning into reality.
What’re your planners for 2021?
