How to get started with Digital Planning

Team MäksēLife @ 2022-07-14 12:36:25 -0700

I have been using a paper planner for as long as I can remember. I was handed an academic planner in 6th grade and never looked back. In recent months life got a little crazy (whose hasn’t!?) and I officially made the switch to digital planning with the MäksēLife Digital Planner and I am loving it! 


To switch from a paper planner to digital was a huge step but it was worth it. Not only for the environmental and cost benefits, but also because of how portable the MäksēLife Goal-Setting System is as well! 


While switching from a paper planner to a digital planner may seem daunting, it is much easier than you think!


Before we jump into how to switch to digital planning, here are some of the other benefits of going digital:

  • Your goals and plans are always with you! 
    • The biggest benefit of digital planning is having your goals and plans with you at all times. Your goals will sync across devices, and you will have everything right at your fingertips. Having your goals and plans right in front of you is proven to help you get better and quick results! 
  • Correct mistakes
    • With digital planning it is easy to erase any mistakes or plans that got canceled or even just select and move plans that get rescheduled. No longer do you need to scratch things out or carry whiteout!
  • Cost effective
    • Once the initial cost of the tablet is paid, digital planning is a very cost effective hobby! You can buy packs of stickers for around $5 and use them over and over! You can purchase notebooks, like the MäksēLife Digital Notebook (coming soon!) and inserts like the Makselife Weekly Overview + Daily Page Inserts to create the perfect planner setup to take you through every stage of life!
  • Save time
    • Do you have recurring appointments? Or the same to-dos week to week? With digital planning it is as simple as copy-and-paste and your plans duplicate themselves. You can even copy an entire week over to the next! 
  • Best of both worlds
    • I am sure you have heard that writing information down helps you remember it! Well, the same is true with writing it digitally. 
  • Always have a backup
    • There is nothing worse than the feeling in the pit of your stomach when you realize you left your planner at home! OR worse…you LOST it! With digital, there is always a backup of your plans (thank you cloud storage!) And with some apps, you can even have your planner on your phone to reference!
