Have you tried digital planning yet? If not, you're missing out! There are so many reasons to love it, from convenience to flexibility.
If you're on the fence about switching from paper planning to digital planning, this blog post is for you! We'll discuss 10 reasons why you'll love digital planning. Keep reading to discover why going digital is the best decision for your productivity and peace of mind!
For a lot of people, the digital planning app alone is enough. You can create individual notebooks, add pages, and take notes just like you would on paper. But PDF digital planners will offer you two major advantages: a huge variety of templates and a better navigation experience by using embedded clickable elements throughout the document.
Yes, people really use digital planners! In fact, there are a number of reasons why they’re a great option for organizing your time and tasks. Endless digital stickers, unlimited pen & highlighter colors, pens in every size, unlimited undo (no erase marks!), copy paste resize and rotate, portrait mode and landscape mode...
Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits of using a digital planner:
One of the best things about digital planning is that you can keep and use an entire planner on your iPad, tablet, or phone – and you don't have to carry any bulky paper around with you! This means you'll have more space in your bag, and you won't have to worry about your planner getting wet or ruined.
One of the best reasons you'll love digital planning is that you can take your digital planner with you wherever you go - with NO ADDED BULK! Since your planner is stored on your phone, tablet, or laptop, you can easily access it no matter where you are. This means you can always stay on top of your schedule and never miss a meeting or appointment. Or never forget to write down that super important thing you have to pick up from the store (ahem... just me?)
This one is pretty self-explanatory – with a paper planner, when you run out of paper, you're out of luck! But with a digital planner, you can always duplicate more pages if needed in your digital planning app. Your digital planner is totally reusable! This means you can use it over and over again, and you won't have to worry about wasting any paper. This also helps to save money in the long run. Plus, with digital planning, you can say goodbye to those pesky paper cuts!
You'll love digital planning because it's eco-friendly. Since there’s no need for paper when using a digital planner, this means less waste and fewer trees being cut down for paper production. Plus, by saving all of your handwritten notes digitally, you’re also reducing the amount of clutter in your home and office!
With a paper planner, you have to remember to write down changes and updates. But with a digital planner, you can simply make the changes on your iPad, tablet, or phone, and they'll be automatically saved. This means your digital planner will always be accurate and up-to-date!
Another great reason to switch to digital planning is that they are very cost-effective. You can find many digital planners in my shop for under $20. You are buying that ONCE. You duplicate pages as you go! With a digital planner, you don't have to worry about wasting paper – which is great for the environment! Plus, you won't have to spend money on new planner inserts or pens every time you run out.
When it comes to digital planners, mistakes are easy to erase and change! You can correct errors if you make any, resize handwriting that is too big, you can simply erase any mistakes with your finger or a stylus, and then change the text around however you want. All things that you can't do in a paper planner! This means that you'll be able to plan more accurately and effectively without any errors. This is personally one of the top reasons why I love digital planning - because I always write in pens and fixing mistakes got sloppy!
One of the best reasons you'll love digital planning is that you can customize them to your heart's content! This means that you can add digital stickers, duplicate pages where you need them, change covers, etc. There are tons of different digital sticker packs available on the internet (my digital planners include matching sets of hundreds of digital stickers!)
This means that you can make your digital planner work for you, instead of the other way around. If you want to track your progress on a specific goal, for example, you can add a tracking widget to your planner.
A digital planner is interactive, which means you can add notes, links, and photos to your pages for extra visual interest. This makes it fun to use and helps keep you motivated to stick with your planning routine!
Digital planning can save you a lot of time, especially when it comes to tasks that are repetitive. Using a digital planner, you can be more efficient by copying tasks and appointments, dragging and dropping items, duplicating pages, or erasing items with a click of a button or stroke of your pen. You can search for a certain word or a specific date. You can even search your handwritten notes. This can come in handy if you're trying to find a specific appointment or meeting time!
With all your tasks and appointments in one place, you can easily see what you need to do and when. This can help you avoid scheduling conflicts and save time on planning.
Another great thing about digital planners is that you can easily share your pages with other people! GoodNotes 5 just released their Beta Collaboration option. Or you could take a screenshot of the planner page you want to share and email it to a friend. Either way, you don't have to print out copies or scan it like you would with a physical planner.
When it comes to digital planners, another amazing reason you'll love digital planning is that you can still get the benefits of handwriting! This means that you can personalize your planner with your handwriting, add handwritten notes and thoughts, and create custom pages with your drawings and designs. Plus, by handwriting in your planner, you'll be able to better focus and connect with your thoughts and ideas. So don't worry – you don't have to give up all the benefits of handwriting just because you're using a digital planner!
Are you in love with digital planning yet? If you're on the fence about digital planning, hopefully, this post has given you more than a few good reasons to try it out.
I love my digital planner because it's so convenient - I can access it from anywhere, and I don't have to worry about running out of stickers. Plus, it saves me money in the long run.
If you're looking for an easy way to plan your life, give digital planning a try! And if you decide you love it as much as I do, be sure to leave me a comment and let me know. I'd love to hear all about your favorite features.
