Description

Keeping a daily calendar helps to keep our lives - both personal and professional - organized. Calendars keep us focused, goal oriented, and help us to work more efficiently. 

Using a calendar can be as simple as updating an app on your phone, syncing your email with your calendar, or a physical daily planner. Everyone is different. Try out each and decide what works best for you and your workflow.

Why it works

Daily planners and calendars keep your days organized and ensure that you don’t forget important tasks, events, or meetings. These planners help you manage your time more effectively so you finish your work on time and keep deadlines. Not only do people finish their work on time, they often finish their tasks early. In fact, taking time to study your calendar each morning will help you perform even better and prepare you for your day.

Tips

  • Calendars can be a creative outlet. Make your own bullet journal and fully customize it to your goals, schedule, and lifestyle. 
  • Organize your calendar with colors. This will help you differentiate between tasks and ensure that you get the most important things done first.
  • Keep your work and personal schedules separate. This will help you keep a healthy work/life balance.
  • Some days are busier than others, but always make sure there is room for small breaks in your calendar so you can regroup for the next thing.
