With 2013 arriving, resolutions are being made and appointments are being set. Doctor’s appointments are on the rise, since the first part of the year is when most people get their annuals, and summer vacations are being planned. Parties, conferences, trade shows…all things that you need to keep track of. How do you keep track of all the appointments and engagements? Besides your phone and Outlook calendar?
If you’re anything like me, it’s with a funky planner. Something with style and pizazz. Inherently me, but with a practical side. Also, I have so much going on in my life that I need my phone, my Outlook calendar, AND a planner. You just never know when you might forget to put that important meeting with the boss in one of them, so for me, triplicate is best.
Everyone has different styles of what works best for them, whether it’s blocked in a monthly format, a lined daily format, or a mixture of both. I like having a place to jot notes on the side of the page as opposed to an area in the back of the book. Some people like a planner that has a closure to it, others don’t want to fuss with a zipper or a snap. Regardless of your style, have fun with your planner, let it reflect your personality and style! That way, when you see that appointment for a root canal, at least it’s in a book with a cheery cover!
