Should You Use An EVO Planner That Doesn't Match Your Brain Type?
Perhaps you took the Brain Type Assessment for a second time, or you took the Elements Assessment and got a different Brain Type result, or maybe you’re hung up on the layout of another style planner that doesn’t quite match your Brain Type… In any case, now you’re wondering… Should I only use the EVO Planner designed for my Brain Type? Is using a different style detrimental in any way?
The quick answer is—use whatever system works for you. Whether that’s a planner designed for a different Brain Type, or another system entirely… Use what works. That’s the most important thing, period.
We designed the EVO Planners to be most optimal for your specific Brain Type, because a lot of people out there struggle to find a planning system that actually works for them. If you’ve never found a planner that works for you, try the EVO Planner designed for your Brain Type. We believe that this style of planning system will be the most optimal because each planner is tailored to help you thrive, based on how your brain operates.
Here is a reminder of what we’ve determined each Brain Type needs to thrive:
- Explorers need Fun and Adventure
- Oracles need to Disconnect and Find Focus Time
- Alchemists need Variety and to Share Discoveries
- Architects need Order and Balance
We’ve also set up each layout to reflect the way each Brain Type generally likes to organize things, in order to help you plan your days in the way that makes the most sense to you. This combination, plus realistic, short-term goal setting is what really helps people get the best results from the EVO System.
However, if you do decide, for whatever reason, to use a different style EVO Planner other than the one designed specifically for your Brain Type that is also fine. Although the majority of people will relate to a primary Brain Type, every person is still individual and has specific needs, preferences, and circumstances. If you’re an Architect that really needs to work on finding focus time, maybe the Oracle style planner is just what you need. Or maybe you’re an Explorer who needs a planner layout with more structure and you love the Architect style planner. There is nothing wrong with that!
There is nothing in any of the EVO Planners that is going to be detrimental for you to use, regardless of your Brain Type. Each planner’s focus to help the user thrive is going to be good and helpful in general for any human. The EVO Planners are designed to help each Brain Type get the things that should be non-negotiable in their life, but ultimately, everyone needs a bit of fun, a bit of focus time, a bit of sharing their discoveries, and a bit of order in their life.
So use what works. Use whatever style, whatever system that gives you the best results. Because at the end of the day, that’s what truly matters.
