Finding the perfect planner is incredibly important to support good executive functioning, but it can also take a lot of trial and error! I personally use a daily printed sheet that I created. I share this sheet with all of my clients. Remember: whatever system you use must work for YOU, first and foremost.
We often get asked about planners, and January is the time to begin anew. Here are some planners that we have tried and tested:
The Bullet Journal
If you are a creative person and love doodling (a large basis of the Seeing My Time workbook), this planner might work well for you.
These beautiful planners are similar to the bullet journal, but more structured. They include areas to doodle, places to write your goals and tasks, along with regular fill in the blank calendar space.
You can’t beat an old classic. We like the 2-page per month folio sized tabbed calendar (product #94100).
The Passion Planner
This planner is recommended for entrepreneurs who want to keep their goals and motivations in the same location as their calendar, creating a “road map” of time and productivity management.
