Business Planner

High Quality, Functional
Daily Life Organizer

A business planner is a must for everyone whether you have a business or not. Have you ever been one of those people to use a daily planner?

If not, you should be. As much as we’d like to admit, one of the shortcomings of being human is that we can’t remember everything.

I’m a business owner and a mom, and with all of the different meetings in addition to field trips & athletic games, it’s hard to imagine my life without a planner!

When you are in charge of accounting for small business, a business planner is a must. However, you don’t have to be a business owner or parent to find a use for a planner in your life.

Business Planner

There are many moms and independent business contractors who use planners to keep track of important dates and client information to have within arm’s reach to reference back to.

So to all of you business owners or employees who only rely solely on your brain, or the calendar in your cell phone; it’s time to stop!

If your cell phone dies, or the awful chance that you misplace it without backing it up to the iCloud, you will lose all of that valuable information in the blink of an eye!

Save yourself the hassle, and invest in a hard-copy planner that organizes all of the new incoming information. It can easily be edited and updated, and in the long run, save you extraordinary amounts of precious time.

Business Planner - Functionality

Find a daily business planner that is functional for YOU. If you get one that is too big or too small, you will begin to not like it, and find ways to never use it again.

Find one that is leather-bound (for the professional businessperson), or one that has a zippered enclosure so that all of your receipts aren’t falling out (for the parent who does it all).

Whatever works for you, make sure that your life planner possesses that important quality, and you will be much more excited to open it up and use it!

Life Planner - Use Colors

By incorporating a color coded system, you will be able to differentiate between doctor’s appointments, business meetings, play dates, and other important tidbits of information within your professional planner.

If you can’t bring yourself to using colors, use stickers instead. Stickers are really easy to find and come in all shapes and sizes.

If you are unable to find stickers that are the right fit for your planner; make your own!

By personalizing your very own calendar sticker system in your life planner, you will be better able to prioritize your activities months in advance.

Life Planner - Bookmarks

Make sure you bookmark the current date of wherever you leave off from day to day.

By using either a ribbon, or a handy-dandy butterfly clamp, you can quickly get to the current week and jot down a small memo that you need to remember for later.

That way, the next time you open your organizational planner, you will fall right on that page you left off at, and can read the that important note you wrote for yourself to see.

Business Planner - Getting Started

Now that you have acquired your very own personal planner, and have written down the important upcoming events, you have in your hands your very own personal assistant!

By having one that includes a calendar at-a-glance, has individual days (with ample lines and space), and either a color-coded or priority-sticker system, you will find that a planner is one of the best ways to organize your time and your life, so that you can be stress-free and find much more productive uses for your time.

Business Planner Benefits

Using a planner can bring numerous benefits and positively impact various aspects of our lives. Whether in personal, academic, or professional settings, a planner serves as a valuable tool for organizing schedules, setting goals, and staying on track. Here are several benefits of using a planner:

  1. Enhanced Organization and Time Management: A planner provides a centralized space to record and manage daily, weekly, and monthly schedules. By jotting down appointments, deadlines, and tasks, individuals can visualize their commitments and allocate time efficiently. With a clear overview of their obligations, they can prioritize tasks, avoid overbooking, and allocate adequate time for each activity. This enhanced organization leads to better time management, increased productivity, and reduced stress.
  2. Goal Setting and Tracking: Planners offer a platform to set both short-term and long-term goals. By documenting goals and breaking them down into actionable steps, individuals can create a roadmap for success. Regularly referring to the planner helps track progress, evaluate achievements, and make adjustments as needed. This visual representation of goals and progress fosters motivation and encourages individuals to stay focused and committed to their objectives.
  3. Improved Memory and Recall: With the abundance of information we encounter daily, it is easy to forget important details or appointments. A planner acts as a reliable external memory aid, ensuring that crucial information is recorded and easily accessible when needed. By documenting important dates, reminders, and to-do lists, individuals can rely on their planner to keep track of commitments, appointments, and tasks, reducing the chances of missing deadlines or forgetting important events.
  4. Stress Reduction: A planner can significantly reduce stress levels by providing a sense of control and reducing the cognitive burden of remembering everything. When individuals have a clear plan and a comprehensive overview of their commitments, they can approach their day with confidence and reduced anxiety. The act of organizing thoughts and responsibilities in a planner also serves as a mental release, freeing up valuable cognitive resources and promoting a calmer mindset.
  5. Increased Productivity and Efficiency: By using a planner to prioritize tasks and allocate time effectively, individuals can optimize their productivity. Planners allow for efficient scheduling, helping individuals identify and eliminate time-wasting activities or distractions. With a clear plan in place, individuals can streamline their workflow, minimize procrastination, and make the most of their available time.
  6. Enhanced Accountability: When goals, tasks, and deadlines are documented in a planner, individuals create a sense of accountability. The act of visually seeing commitments in writing reinforces a sense of responsibility, motivating individuals to follow through on their plans. The planner becomes a powerful tool for self-discipline and personal growth.
  7. Better Work-Life Balance: A planner helps individuals balance their personal and professional lives. By scheduling and allocating time for important activities such as family, hobbies, self-care, and relaxation, individuals can maintain a healthier work-life balance. The planner serves as a reminder to prioritize personal well-being and dedicate time to activities beyond work, leading to increased overall satisfaction and improved quality of life.

Using a planner offers numerous benefits, including enhanced organization, improved time management, goal setting, reduced stress, increased productivity, and better work-life balance. By utilizing this simple yet effective tool, individuals can bring structure and efficiency to their lives, ultimately leading to greater success, fulfillment, and well-being.
