I was away last weekend for my work's annual conference and as per normal, my Filofax and a book were in my bag. It occurred to me that these two simple and everyday items offer so much between them:
- As an avid reader, I can easily lose myself in a good book for many hours and can travel anywhere in the world in my imagination
- If I pack a non-fiction one, I can study and make notes in my binder
- I didn't pack my laptop this time, so I found that it helped me focus on doing some project planning without the temptation of the internet
- I could easily jot down random thoughts as they popped into my head for processing later into my action lists.
Whilst there are other binder accessories that I own that are useful, I've realised that when I go away the book and planner have become part of my essential items. Somehow it also feels like a little bit of home, no matter where I am.
What essentials do you pack to go with your planner when you go away?
And always as it's Friday, please feel free to discuss anything ring bound organiser related. Have a great weekend!
