My clients and my colleagues are often searching for the perfect planner. There’s a range of options for all of us, from digital to paper. I polled my colleagues to help you determine what planners are most popular and why!
What helps you determine the planner you choose?
Ability to quickly assess and add appointments Agility in adding information to your planner Size and portability Attractive cover and interior pages
Here’s the responses
MaryJo: I’m a 100% digital calendar. I can color code and set reminders. I don’t leave home without my phone so I always have my calendar.
Melony: I’m old school. Franklin Covey Classic, ring bound 5.5×8.5, leather zip planner with lots of pockets.
Michelle: I have Erin Condren, Life Planner vertical layout this year. I like the format but it is so bulky.
Judy: The planner I love is the discbound planner with inserts (happy planner). I use the Louis Vuitton Monogram cover to hold everything together. I love this style of planner because you can customize it to your liking.
Me: I love the planner pad and love Outlook reminders. I have a hybrid system that works for me. I am visual so a paper planner lets me see it all and easily write in appointments. I have a few pockets for papers and use a binder clip to keep a pad of paper in the front.
Whatever your system, remember to have a weekly planning time with your planner and task list. It’s time to schedule your tasks and check on appointments.
