I've tried different formats, different brands, different sizes. I briefly switched to a traveler's notebook. I tried David Allen's GTD and Mark Forster's Auto Focus. I tried unstructured. I tried digital. I made my own pages. I used a bullet journal. I played around with the Pomodoro technique and planner pad. I've tried everything and nothing trips my trigger.
You know what I think? I think I just need to suck it up and figure out what will meet my needs relatively well and just use it. The truth is, a planner is just a tool - at least for me. It's not a scrapbook or a journal or a work of art. It's just a tool that makes my life better.
You know what else? Tools aren't necessarily exciting or inspiring - they just need to get the job done. I don't want to vacuum every day - but I do. I don't always want to cook - but I do. I don't always want to do laundry - but I do. And getting a new vacuum or washing machine or stove won't necessarily make me want to do those tasks more.
