6 Daily Planner Tips for Being More Organized

AAG Planner

There’s an easy way you can enjoy better time management in your life: make daily planning a habit.

Here are a few key guidelines for making time management a habit:

• Set your “Plan Time:” Choose a specific time each day for your planning activities. For example, you can devote 5 minutes over breakfast each morning and hold a 15-minute weekly review every Sunday afternoon. Setting a schedule keeps you accountable and makes planning a normal everyday life activity.

• Commit for 1 month: Make a goal for yourself that says you will unfailingly stick to your planning system for one month. You’ll start feeling a sense of progress and accomplishment with each passing day. Be sure to write your goal date into your planner so you can celebrate your success. Then, commit to another month of planning.

• Be realistic: Start at a planning level that feels manageable. For example, you might want to start simple and keep just a weekly schedule and to-do list. Don’t attempt a process that may overwhelm you. Once you get the ball rolling, you can add activities such as monthly goal setting and time tracking.

• Carry it: Keep your planner with you at all times, and spend a few minutes reviewing your plans during downtime at work or at home.

    I think this article addresses an important yet under-appreciated problem faced by many people. Especially as it relates to health, time management and prioritization of important versus urgent matters is an ongoing challenge. I personally find it helpful to have a fun, visual platform with which to design my day, called Owaves (www.owaves.com). I prefer a fun app like this over the physical planner. Hope this is helpful a relevant audience.
