5 Things Your Power Planner Must Have

October 08, 2020 – Clarice Oyales

I don’t know about you but planner plays a very important role both in my career and personal life. It’s my personal assistant, my secretary, my right arm, my diary, my confidant, my listener, the list goes on. It doesn’t just hold my schedules and errands; it gets my life together.

Others may turn a blind eye to it, while some live by it, what’s more important is how you maximize the features and use them for your benefit.

Whether you wish to stay on top of your tasks or trying to inject a balance between chaos and calm in your calendar, here are what you need from a planner.

1. Monthly Overview
Welcome complete organization and reclaim your power over your time and schedule through a monthly spread. This helps when you need to keep track of important dates in a month and carefully plan for the upcoming commitments that you have.

2. Weekly Overview
A weekly overview helps you meet obligations and deadlines in a timely manner – a reminder that something is up very soon, thus you must brace yourself for it. A quick look at your week helps you plan shorter yet achievable goals.

3. Daily Overview
You can write down your to-do list of the day in the daily space to make sure you won’t miss out an important task. Make sure to designate slots to emails, phone calls, and personal errands. Daily overview is the one-stop page of your 24 hours, so it’s crucial to keep it organized and well-planned.

4. Free Space
Free pages are for scribbling thoughts, ideas, and musings you can’t turn into words for the meantime. This is also an area where you can let your creativity run loose. Bullet or buckets away your life goals or destination trips – be free with free space!

5. Motivational Quotes
A motivational quote helps in setting your day right. It is a written cheer up that can lift your flagging spirits, a friend that can pat yourself on the back, and a stranger slapping you with reality.

These features may not cater to everyone, but will surely give power to people who are ready to embrace a more attuned lifestyle.
