Digital planning is not an entirely new process but it has been gaining steam recently. Whether you are new to digital planning or an OG there are reasons to include it in your arsenal of planning essentials. I’m diving into Part 1 of this four-part series with the first five of 20 reasons why I love digital planning. Before I get started, I must share how it all began.
How did I Get Started?
Planning comes naturally to me. I’ve always been a planner. I’ve always been a strategic thinker and action taker. I’ve always written down the plan and then executed the plan. So naturally, I’m a lover of a good notebook or the right planner.
I was introduced to digital notebooks and planners in 2018. My computer crashed and at the time I chose to replace it with the iPad Pro that had just released. GoodNotes 4 (now GoodNotes 5) was an app that I fell in love with in the Apple Store so I immediately installed it on my new iPad. Then a couple of months later, I found myself back in the classroom. GoodNotes was an absolute lifesaver for storing all my notebooks and PDF documents my instructors sent out. And the rest is history, I’ve been using them ever since.
On to the first five reasons from this series of why I love digital planning.
1. Rinse & Repeat
It’s recyclable! I love things that I can rinse and repeat its use. Literally, you can duplicate the entire notebook or planner and reuse it as many times as you like.
You can also duplicate pages within the notebook if you need more pages. In a physical notebook once the page is used it’s used.
2. Space Saver & Unlimited Storage
Did I say that I absolutely love a good notebook? If you are anything like me then you use a different notebook for specific things. You have a notebook for business, one for prayers, one for workouts, and the list goes on. I literally have bookshelves full of notebooks and planners. The thing is just that … they take up space. Digital planning allows you to store as many notebooks as you want within the app of your choice without demanding loads of physical space to store them. It’s a win-win situation … space saver + unlimited storage.
Hyperlinks are legit the best thing ever. Hyperlinks are destination links meaning it’s a link when clicked takes you to a specified destination. In the sense of digital planning products, they operate similarly to tabs with more of a pinpoint capability. It’s like flipping pages on steroids.
4. Search & Find
Have you ever had to remember what notebook or planner you wrote something in and then have to spend time searching through the pages to find what you are looking for in said notebook?
Not anymore … the search and find feature allows you to search any keyword, phrase, or sentence across all of your notebooks at one time to find what you are looking for.

5. Syncs Across All Devices
The ability to access my information (my written plans and strategies) across all my devices is a must. Typically, I take my iPad with me most places I go but having
