What To Do When You Make Mistakes in Your Planner
As I have mentioned several times before, finding Giftie Etcetera's blog and Facebook group really help define and change the way I use my planner. If I make a mistake now I don't get uptight about it, but there are are a few things I might do to try and hide it.
If I write something on the wrong date on my weekly pages, I handle the task as if I have already completed the task, even if it is on a future date. I check it "done" and cross through it with my highlighter (Giftie's Reverse Highlight Trick!); then I make sure I find the correct date and I write it down again. Even though I know I made a mistake, it still follows the flow of my planner. A mind trick, if you will!
Of course you could always use correction fluid, cover it with a full-adhesive or regular Post-It note, or even cover it with a sticker (maybe one that says "oops", LOL).
If mistakes really bother you, a pencil or erasable pen is your best bet!
