In the last 35 years, I have used a number of different planners, including Space 17, Space 24, Horizon 11, Executive, and Sapa X. After a few years, I tend to make a change to a new format. Sometimes, my needs change, and I need to match them with a different format. Other times I just feel like trying something new.
In my 20s I had a company-issued vinyl monthly pocket planner. It was light to carry, and kept me on track with planning trips and events.
I will be using a slim desk monthly for much the same purpose now that I’m in my 60s!
I picked the Monthly 4 for a number of reasons:
-starts now (July 2017)
-Slim and lightweight. Easy to travel around
-Prefer a monthly overview for planning
-Room for a few daily memos
-90g paper, so I can color code specific days or weeks.
What I probably will do is tuck a side-stapled Clairefontaine or Rhodia notebook in the back for additional notes I want to keep; and a pad for notes can I can tear out.
Have you “evolved” in your planner format choices over the years?
