  2. I love how you call them support groups, like we're all members of PA (planners anonymous). Surely you're legally obligated to refer to them as enabler groups. Truth in advertising and all that.

  4. Very enjoyable episode! I feel I must emphasize that high-ticket planners may not be for everyone. I am currently using a second-hand Franklin planner which is serving me very well, is very well made of high-quality materials, and functionally is everything I need it to be. It's not glamorous. I think the high-end planners can be difficult because they cost so much; a lot of people seem to be afraid of using them for fear of damaging something they paid so much for.

  5. Very enjoyable. I admit this was the first of the series I have listened to and I will definitely listen to the prior ones. The word "pride" came up which means so much to me every time I handle my VDS.
