Sadly, many people are trying to live up to the expectation of a picture-perfect life, even when that life doesn’t make them all that happy either. They’re feeling pressure from all angles to create a life they’ve been told to have, rather than being guided to craft a messy, winding adventure of their own. They start off the new calendar year with big goals and great intentions of filling out a planner perfectly to finally make this year be different, only to become bored with their newfound habit by February and back to square one for the rest of the year.
Simply put, the crazy-busy, super-pressured people of today’s world need something more than the traditional planner to keep their life fulfilled, in check and moving forward. Today, a renowned designer by the name of Kerry Lyons is starting a new ‘imperfect movement’ and has created a new kind of planner, to help with just that. She calls it The Imperfect Life® Planner; a planner that doesn’t make them feel bad for occasionally forgetting to use it, or making mistakes in it; a planner that helps them stop breaking their back striving for perfection, and instead helps them see the freedom and joy in imperfection. It wants to help them craft a beautifully imperfect life that they love instead.
At the heart of the Imperfect Life® Planner is the weekly mistake log that carries them through the year and helps them overcome any perfectionist tendencies. It does this by helping them see the value in their mistakes, big or small, with a promise that they’ll actually learn to love them in a matter of weeks. On the more micro side of things, the Imperfect Life® Planner also contains space for daily to-do lists (with motivational chirps thrown in!) as well as hourly schedule areas, musings and meal planning.
Additionally there are also three main chapters within the planner that can be accessed as and when they need them; the Fear Journal chapter holds their hand, while they squash every fear that might be holding them back from truly enjoying their life and/or career; the Master Plan chapter helps them plan what they want from their 2018 into digestible quarterly chunks – making their goals both feel achievable and more meaningful; and the Thrive Manual chapter gives its owner the motivation and support they need through the whole process. All the pep talks anyone could ever need are tucked away in this little manual and are never more than a few page flips away.
As an added benefit, The Imperfect Life® Planner also includes fun stickers to commend all their hard work, and mindful colouring-in pages to provide a brief escape, helping them remember that the fun stuff in life is just as important.
Unfortunately, producing a planner as intricate as The Imperfect Life® Planner is no easy task. For this reason, Kerry has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter that ends on August 31st. Through this campaign, among other investor rewards, readers can pre-order a planner for themselves or a friend at reduced prices while supplies last. With this support, Kerry is excited to be helping make lives around the world more imperfect, fearless and positive every day.
