One of the quotes that I have accidentally come across that has stuck with me throughout the years especially when I was trying to get my life together was ''If you have no direction of where you want to go in life, then anywhere is acceptable''.
So, it is important to keep track of what you do in a month, hour, day or just time in general as time is a commodity that cannot be bought back unless you have a time machine.
With that being said, one way to do so is to keep a journal to measure how your time is being spent and what I love using to do so is through the Erin Condren Planner.
What is an Erin Condren Planner?
Just as the name suggests the Erin Condren Planner is a journal or planner that helps you keep track of what you do with your time throughout the entire year.
A planner has been proven to increase productivity and time management of a person.
Now, there is a lot of planners which you can choose from the Erin Condren Planner catalog depending on what you trying to plan for such as :
You can find out more on the website, but I love using the Erin Condren Life Planner.
That is because I use the planner to set career goals that I want to achieve for the year and break it down into smaller objectives throughout the year to achieve those big goals.
When choosing a planner you are allowed to customize the design which is something I love about the Erin Condren Planner because it is something that you will be using throughout the year, so you want a personalized design to make it your own.

Upon purchasing the planner you will get a lot of stickers that come with it and you can also order stickers from the website or if you don't see a sticker that you are interested in you can also check out some of our collection.
Some ideas of using stickers in a planner:
- Mark importance of a task
- Birthday reminder
- Marking a deadline
- Used to mark if you pass or fail the day
- Marking Holidays
Those are just some ideas I see others use the stickers for, personally I love using the stickers to mark if I fail for the day or pass the day so I like using those green and red transparent circle stickers.
So, at the beginning of the planner where the calendar section is at I would stick a red sticker if I fail for the day or a green sticker if I pass the day.
I also love the use of sticky notes, it helps me create more space to write something in a page or I would also use it to correct a plan that went wrong so that my planner looks clean and not messed up with scribbles around it correcting plans that didn't go my way.
However, you want to use the stickers is up to you as there is plenty of different icon stickers to choose from just be creative about it and if you don't have the icon that you want you can always order more on the website or different websites that sells those stickers.
