Having a day/week/monthly planner is probably one of the best ways to benefit your productivity; nearly every single successful entrepreneur, actor, and businessperson has one. They are so satisfying, because it will help you stay on track and keep up with your daily goals as well as aid you in remembering helpful reminders. Below are my reasons you should invest in a planner, make it cute and fun, and some ideas for what to include.
Improve Time Management
Managing time focuses on planning and controlling the amount of the time you spend on activities and a dayplanner is the best tool for doing this. A planner tends to consist of your daily/weekly overviews and allows you to pencil in all of the events and tasks on your busy schedule, as well as any additional ideas or information you need to jot down. You can easily organize the events of any given day according to time (by hour,morning and evening, etc.).
Forget Less, Remember More
A dayplanner will simply ensure you never forget anything important ever again. When being given the option of writing it down, setting it to a specific date and time, and following up with it regularly, you are most likely to not forget dental appointments, important payments, or friends’ birthdays. Just like the benefits of having time management, a dayplanner will mean assuming more control over your life.
After gaining a sense of control over your life from the above benefits, you’ll be in the grasp less stress in your life. After outlining your schedule and prioritizing your to-do list in a dayplanner, you will feel an instant release from the feelings of being overwhelmed with tasks. Additionally, you’ll never forget important events and your with your increased productivity you’ll benefit from minimized stress and an improved quality of life.
Because you are now more organized and able to prioritize tasks, you’ll be able to get more done. Essentially, a dayplanner will lock you into a system of sorts, and keep you focused and moving towards your various goals. Without this “system” you’re less able prioritize every task on your schedule and you’re more susceptible to procrastination.
