Do You Have Your 2013 Planner?

If you use a paper planner, it’s time to shop for 2013. In order to get the right one for you, consider what you will use it for and how you think and plan.

Planning involves visualizing the future and being able to write it down. The act of writing down your wishes into your planner, makes them goals. Your planner will remind you of the direction you want to move. Here are four things an effective planning calendar should include.

  1. A place to record your goals since they are an integral part of the planning process.
  2. Each day broken into 15 minute increments, including Saturdays and Sundays as well as evenings to facilitate the scheduling of personal as well as business projects and activities.
  3. Daily follow-up sections to record deadlines for assignments, birthdays and other special events, and notes.
  4. Weekly and daily “To Do” sections to record non-priority items that should be done.

A planner is the most important time/life management tool, so choose it carefully.
