If you leave your plans at home on your desk, when you think of an idea that makes your plan better or want to discuss it with a colleague you are forced to go from memory. Or worse than that, if your plan is on paper and on your desk when you collaborate or add to it, you must add another piece of paper to your collection. On the other hand, if you have your plan stored electronically on your tablet or smartphone, it is with you and you can amend, adjust and collaborate about the plan without concern for information being lost in translation or missing pieces of paper.Most entrepreneurs have tablets and Smartphones.

Most entrepreneurs have tablets and smartphones. These devices make it possible to carry around a significant amount of data. One of the pieces of data that should be carried around on your tablet and Smartphone is your business plan, personal plans, and all other important plans. There are a myriad of reasons why your plans should be carried with you including the following the fact that carrying the plan will give you the ability to:
  • Work on plan no matter where you are
  • Amend the plan as needed
  • Review the plan on a regular basis
  • Share the plan with others
  • Collaborate with team members
If you have a plan you are working on or want to complete, take the time to make it electronic and add it to your tablet or smartphone. Keep your plan with you to keep it flexible, available and usable. I do have a compromise for those of you who cannot give up your paper planners and bullet journals Take photos of your planner pages and store the photos on your phone and in the cloud. This way, the plans are always available if you want to add to them, share them with someone else, or work with them when your paper planning device is not available. In addition, those photos will be invaluable if something were to happen to your paper planning device and you need to recreate it.
In conclusion, it is terrific to know technology can set you free so type your plans and carry them with you. So, the question for you this terrific day is, are you carrying your plans with you where they can do some good or are you letting them sit on your desk?
