Time management Monday: What to do if your planner isn’t working well enough for you

Post Comment

Now that we are nearly a month into the new year and you’ve been using your planner for awhile, you should have a good idea if it’s working well enough for you. Maybe it’s not quite right, or you feel there’s something missing. Or maybe you are realizing there is no way your planner is going to work for you all year.

Maybe your issues can be resolved with the addition of a monthly planner or another notes booklet tucked into the inside pocket of your planner.

Or, maybe you just need a new planner.

You’re in luck: All our 2018 planners are still in stock, so you have loads of options in all formats and sizes! I can help you find the right planner for you.
