Issues to Consider when Choosing a Good Planner
Choosing a good planner is not an easy task but there are some things to consider when it comes to choosing a planner. The most integral thing to look at is the layout of the planner because some planners have daily pages that one can jot down the events of each day; some have weekly pages that have two pages that cater for that week whereas some have monthly pages. An amazing fact to state is that the needs of the person will determine the layout that the person wants in their planner.
The other thing to consider is the size of the diary because the diary has to be large enough that the person has enough room to write on and some planners that have daily pages are bulky thus the person needs to be comfortable carrying the bulky planner around. The purchaser also needs to decide if they want a planner that they can keep in their purse or a planner that sticks out of one’s back pack when they are leaving work or class or they can choose to leave it in their desks all together.
Another issue to consider is style because planners range from being plain. It is good to state that plain planners are good because the allow the owner to decorate, colour code or highlight whatever sections they want to decorate and some users even opt to create their own covers. Other people that prefer not to begin from scratch but want to mix their colour coding with a planner that has a colour theme or a light pattern that makes the pages look cute. The buyer needs to decide how basic they want their planner to be and whether they want to decorate it themselves or if they want to buy a planner that has already been designed.
Another issue to consider is whether the person needs to have goal pages and how frequently the goal planning pages should be because some planners have goal setting pages at the beginning and end of each month. Apart from these tools there are other tools that a planner can have such as having an hourly schedule for each day or even having a to-do list. It is good to state that the idea of having days broken down into hours is appealing to some people but the other thing is that there is software that can be used to plan one’s day by the hour.
