In the whirlwind of busyness, it can be easy to get swept up in technology and lose sight of our major goals and priorities. It gets tough to filter the important from the merely urgent, and soon weeks feel crammed with no real achievement to show for your effort.
If this sounds like you, the last thing you need is another mobile app or desktop program to help keep your life on track. Incorporating paper planning into your healthiest digital routines can create a hybrid system that will help you focus on your most important roles and goals.
On October 8, as part of the new Lunchtime Learning series co-sponsored by the Stillwater Chamber of Commerce and Meridian Technology Center, Marcy Luter will present, “Free to Focus: Incorporating Paper Planning in Your Digital Life.”
During this session, Luter will discuss why switching to paper might be a solution, what you need a planner to do, how to choose one that exceeds your expectations and ways to incorporate it into your real life. She will also offer tips on how to transition strategically to a new set of powerful habits, so you can continue to successfully use your new tool. Samples of several popular planners will be available so you can review them in person.
Luter works with businesses and organizations of all kinds to meet their goals through training and other educational opportunities for their greatest asset … their human resources. Her areas of expertise include personal effectiveness and time management, playing to your strengths, communication skills and team dynamics. Luter holds a bachelor’s in agricultural communications from Oklahoma State University, and she is a certified facilitator and trainer for FranklinCovey, Gallup’s StrengthsQuest assessment, Development Dimensions International, AchieveGlobal and Myers Briggs Type Indicator.
