If you remember, last year I tried out the new Agendio planner. This is a fully custom planer that is printed just for you. You get to pick the layout, sections, colors, headers, and even add events and tasks. That planner is about to end and I loved it so much I ordered another one for this year.
I use this planner for work and I use it in an A5 binder so that I can include other papers and inserts in the planner. (Look for A5 binders at Filofax or Michaels.) You can also have yours made with a coil or in a book form. These look nice and professional.
I have been using a daily planner layout for a few years now and what I always notice is that I don’t use the hourly column. In my field I don’t have tons of meetings or appointments, and the ones I do have are often the same each week. Because of this I changed the layout of my planer to just have a small “today” section to record my appointments for the day and then a “tonight” section to jot down evening plans. Of course, if you need the hourly section, go for it! That is what I love about this planner, you can make it work for YOU.
Although I love a daily planner for work, you can also create a weekly planner if that is more of your speed. Vertical, horizontal, whatever you want. I saw some where they had the days on the left page and then the right side was for notes and such for the week. Kind of perfect really.
Once you’ve decided on a layout Agendio lets you add in important dates. You can choose from holidays, moon cycles, religious holidays for several religions and more. You can also add your own holidays like birthdays and anniversaries. Agendio will remember them so you can add them in next year.You can also add reoccurring events like due dates or meetings. A super easy way to ensure things get done.
One of my favorite parts of this planner is that you can set it to start whenever you want. So many times people decide they need a planner in like April and like no planners start in April so they have to buy one they only have use or wait until Academic planners start in around July.
