In some mysterious ways, decorating the planner with stickers really enhances productivity. I learned this from a student last year, and it does work.
I always get the best students.
Interested in how/shy this works…. do the stickers make your day runner stand out more so it’s harder to ignore? Does individualized effort on the cover translate into more attention given to the contents?
I’m really not the sticker kind though…. I wonder what a good proxy would be….
I think it’s both. The creative side of the brain is activated and that reinforces the message.
I find a nice sticker can give a sense of satisfaction. This semester I’ll be giving myself stickers as rewards that I can “cash in” for episodes on Netflix (reading for fun is already a part of my schedule, because otherwise I don’t do as well). Still figuring out exactly how it should work, though. I’d do it for decoration only then I’d get obsessed with finding the perfect stickers or making the perfect layout, and that would distract from the point of the planner.
