I love using a planner to track important events, due dates, and birthdays. A planner is an ideal tool to keep everything scheduled throughout the year. Here are three ways you can get the most out of a planner!
1. Always keep it close
One of the reasons people fail to use their planners is because they don’t use it regularly. Keep it close to you throughout the day, and you’ll always be able to check it.
2. Make a to-do list
I often write a to-do list when I begin my work day. Writing a smaller list will help you track your daily accomplishments and goals. I typically write my list beside each day in my planner to organize each task.
3. Use the monthly and weekly views
I love this feature in my planner. Writing general reminders in the monthly view (e.g. vacation dates, due dates, birthdays) is a great way to encapsulate an overall view of my month. A weekly view lets me easily schedule daily, everyday tasks.
