I hear a lot of people talking about finding planner peace. I find this both amusing and alarming. I want to tell you a little secret. Lean in.
Since there is no perfect planner, you’ll find no planner peace.
Nothing this side of eternity is perfect, nothing here will satisfy you always. We are a restless people. Always seeking, never satisfied. We do it with every aspect of our lives. Once we can accept that this dis-contentedness leads us to distraction, we can begin to seek instead to be content and grateful for what is available now and get on with the business of living…and planning. Recognize this: satisfaction is but for a season, seasons change, as do we; as do our needs, and so shall our desires, goals and planner passions.
If you accept that your planner is like partner, able to change, adapt, be flexible, then you will be free of the need to find something that is elusive anyway.
