Time management Monday: How much detail do you need in your day?

Post Comment

How well your planner works for you depends on how much detail you need to see in your day. Some people need to see their day timed to the half hour. This works well if you are very busy and have a lot to fit into each day. Other people need less structure to their day spaces so they can have the flexibility of writing notes with their schedule. And some people need something in-between.

Less detail: If you want your day spaces to be open without restrictions, times or boxes, you want an open-format planner.

The lined spaces allow you to write whatever you need: scheduled events, tasks, reminders, and notes. You can even use the day spaces differently day to day, however suits your needs at the moment.

Here are some open-format planners:

The Plan & Note planner comes in Pocket or A5 size, both are very portable so they can go with you everywhere.

The desk size Hebdo weekly planner and pocket size Sapa X also have open formats.

More detail: If you need a little bit of structure to your days but want plenty of space for tasks and notes each week, take a look at the week + notes planners. The days are timed to the hour to help you plan out your schedule, and the notes page each week gives you flexibility to add lists, sketches, write directions, and jot any information right down on your weekly page. No more lost sticky notes and random information written wherever! You can keep it all in your planner.

The Space 24 week + notes planner has a large page size but the book is still slim and portable enough to carry in your bag.

The larger Note 27 is perfect if you have lots of notes each week. If you want a pocket size version, it’s the Space 17.
