How to Stay Organized in 2019
I’ve gotten a few questions about what planner I use and how to stay organized. This is the exact planner that I use for all of my appointments, deadlines, reminders, and dates. It is literally my lifeline; I think I would explode if I lost it. I like that it is larger, like the size of a normal notebook; yet it is thin and not bulky. It’s basically the same size as my MacBook Pro.
Why don’t you use your phone?
Sure, we all have Smart Phones and can write down schedules electronically… (LOL that made me laugh). I honestly think it takes LONGER to program all of my reminders in my phone than to just write them down. As a visual person, I like being able to see ALL of my upcoming events and reminders spread out on one page.
How is your planner set-up?
This particular planner gives you both a monthly layout and a weekly layout. I mainly just use the monthly layout. However, the weekly one can be useful when you have a particularly busy week or multiple deadlines to remember. I often use the weekly layout when creating my trip itineraries.
Any tips on how to stay organized?
It might sound extra, but color coordinating things helps me a lot! I don’t have an extravagant colored system that I use. But I do try to use different colored pens and things when writing down multiple things on the same day. My brain can separate them better if I visually see them in different colors.
Do you keep it with you at all times? How do you store it?
I keep my planner in my laptop sleeve (along with my laptop). I don’t carry it with me at all times, but I do carry it back and forth to work. If I need to add something to it while it is not with me, I write it down in a note on my phone and then transfer it that night.
