Big Idea 1: Your Franklin Planner Is The One Thing That Changes Everything—EverydayAugust 20, 2020
Have you noticed that the world we live in is growing ever more chaotic? Today’s digital information age is overwhelming our minds and sabotaging our productivity. We’re constantly interacting with our devices—being bombarded with noise, alarms, and the urgencies of the day. It’s exhausting! With all that is coming at us, it’s hard to focus on the things that truly matter.
What if there’s a simple solution?
What if you could shut out that noise for a few minutes and focus on the things that make you feel alive? What if you could anchor your daily actions to the people, ideals, and values you hold dear—without drifting into areas that waste your time and energy? After all, time is the most valuable currency you have. You’re going to use every second of it daily. Why not ensure that you make those seconds meaningful? You can, with the simple technology of pen and paper in your Franklin Planner System. (We know, it sounds simplistic—but hear us out!)
Time is what life is made of.
Your time truly is your most valuable currency. What you choose to do with your time is critical. Time changes people. Experiences change people. You have the power to choose many of the experiences you’ll have each day!
Spending Verses Investing
The question is: Are you spending your time, or are you investing it? An investment pays you back—it rewards your efforts with value over time. When you spend, you simply give your time away for the moment. That’s why it’s so important that you understand how to invest your time. Your Franklin Planner serves as a daily reminder—encouraging you to invest your time in meaningful ways. Here are a few ways your Franklin Planner will change your life:
Daily Reflection—The best chance you have against this noisy, messy world is to dedicate time to quiet reflection. Unrushed, daily planning with pen and paper allows you time to unwind and focus on the things that truly matter.
Determine What Matters Most To You—You have unique desires and motivations that set you apart from everyone else on the planet. These personal aspirations, values, and motivations originate deep within you and direct your actions. Your planner is the ideal place to list and assess your core values—and determine to act upon them.
Align Your Actions With Your Values—When you start the day focused on activities that support and strengthen your core values—the people, skills, beliefs, and ideas, that you hold most dear, your confidence will grow. You’ll fall into bed each night with a sense of meaningful accomplishment.
When you use your Franklin Planner to invest your time, you’ll discover that it’s the ultimate game changer in your daily life. You’ll find that it’s easier to:
- Work toward your most important goals every day
