What type of planner suits your needs? This is the question you need to ask yourself and you need to really consider before purchasing your next planner.
First, consider what you want to put into your planner.
Do you just want a place to synchronize your appointments? If this is the case, a simple appointment calendar will probably suit your needs. You can get these in many sizes, including one that will fit perfectly in any purse and briefcase.
When purchasing an appointment calendar you really only need to consider the basics:
• How you wish the pages to be set up: In weekly formats or monthly
• What type of cover will suit your tastes
Do you need a planner instead of a basic calendar?
If you decide you need an appointment calendar that has more to do it than just a monthly calendar, you probably need a planner. A planner has many other task management tools along with a regular calendar. These task management tools can include:
• A to do list section
• An address section
• A fitness section
Finally, if you love gadgets you may want to consider purchasing an electronic planner. It is similar to a regular planner, except it is electronic and it has many other features (depending on the model). One tip, you may want to consider is to make it a habit to print a copy of your weekly calendar in case you have problems opening your electronic planner or if it happens to run out of charge.
