Using a Day Planner Effectively

Knowing what you need to accomplish on a particular day and the alloted time for each task can provide a sense of control, both reducing stress and making it more likely that everything gets done. A daily planner is a simple tool, but if used consistently it can help you stay on top of your schedule, be more productive throughout the day, and have a better sense of how much time is available for taking on additional responsibilities or managing unexpected events.

The best type of planner is one that works well for you. Whether you use an online service, time-management software, or a paper planner, be sure to check it regularly, stick to your daily plan as much as possible, and move unfinished items forward. Prioritizing tasks will help ensure that your backlog consists of low-priority tasks.

Set aside time in your daily planning to address these items without having them interfere with more urgent responsibilities. This system holds true for planning your personal or professional life, which you can combine in a single planner or keep separate depending on your inclination.

Some people prefer to keep work duties separate from personal tasks and goals, while others prefer not to juggle two separate planners. Follow your own preferences based on workload and personal habits to find an effective approach to daily planning.
