Using Evernote as a Planner Update

In my last post I explained how I was using Evernote to plan my life.  After using it for about a month its not working!  I think the biggest reason it is not working for me is because I sit in front of a computer all day at work and most nights it was a chore to have to go to Evernote to see what was going on.  When I am at home I want to spend my limited computer time doing what I love and planning in Evernote was not it!  I'm a little disappointed because I thought I had found the perfect solution.

Enter the Bullet Journal or #bujo!  I am super excited about this.  This is my current planning system. {I am not an artist so please excuse my sad drawings and not so wonderful handwriting}



I am able to plan my days ahead and also as things happen that day.  I can be as creative as I want to...which is the biggest reason I love this system.  I have lists throughout my journal.  Everything is easy to find using the Index at the beginning of the journal.  This is so much more than a planner!  I like that I can journal about my day and keep track of things like my health and any habits I am trying to keep up with.  All of this could be done in Evernote but there is just something about actually writing things down.

I have been keeping a genealogy log in my journal as well.  I do have a separate notebook for genealogy research notes.  These notes then get scanned to Evernote.  My journal will also be scanned into Evernote for easy reference.  Hopefully I have found my planner peace!


Did you try using Evernote to plan your days?  Did it work or are you using something else?
