Journaling and Planning in One (Note)Book

What is a planner? 1. A person who makes plans, 2. A list or chart with information that is an aid to planner (example, a day planner). What is a journal? A daily record of news and events of a personal nature; a diary. synonyms: diary, daily record, daybook, log, logbook, chronicle; trademarkdaytimer, “he keeps a journal.”  For a long while I’ve called my combination journal and planner an Omni-Journal, since Omni means: a combining form meaning “all,” or maybe “all in one place” might be a good phrase. Or I could say “one (note)book to rule them all.” Or maybe “my life all in one place,” might be a more apt description of what my journaling and planning all in one notebook is. Maybe even a “creative bullet journal,” or a PlanJo, or maybe a JoPlan. It doesn’t matter what I call it, it’s actually a hybrid of the Bullet Journal, Hobonichi, Planner, Illustrate or Sketch or Doodle Journal, Common Place Journal, and whatever else.

So what’s the big deal? I mean does it really matter if I use one notebook and combine my journaling and planning? I don’t think it should. I mean there aren’t any steadfast rules for planning, journaling, and/or both together. In today’s Coffee Chat video I address the issue. I hope you’ll watch this… I’m thinking about making a series about using an all in one, along with other things–multiple journals, planners… what some people think of as breaking the “planning” rules.
