Make sure you keep your organizer in a place where you can easily see it and get to it throughout your day. If you are going somewhere take it with you. I keep mine on the dining table. I work nearby so I just go over to it to get back on track. Build it slowly. Rome was not built in a day. Whether you have opted for a pre-made weekly planner, a binder you are filling in with templates or an electronic time management piece work on filling it in a little at a time. Set aside some time each day to prepare a section or a page. Spend no more than 30 minutes a day on it or you may get overwhelmed and tired. If you are working on your cleaning lists build them when you clean a room. That way you will know what cleaning details you will need to list. Do one room at a time.
So, instead of 5 minutes for planning out your week or day, why not take a bit more quality time to the task? It is so simple to do. All you need is a printable calendar that can be found almost anywhere online. You might find that printing your calendar into a weekly calendar section works best for you. Then make a specific time everyday to sit down and work through your plans, appointments and tasks to do. Ingrain this good habit into your daily activity and you will find it pays dividends for years to come.
First pick an organizer that will work for you. A weekly planner, templates that you can print off and put in the binder of your choice, or an electronic organizer. Choose the style you are most likely to use. Not everyone wants electronic. As much as I like gadgets a little zippered binder that is filled with my own templates works the best for me. At the very least, to manage your life details your organizer should contain... calendar to do list phone numbers If you plan on also using your organizer to help you manage your plan then you will also want templates such as... menu planner cleaning lists maintenance lists bill payment list plan inventory grocery list.
The best way to organize your calendars and planners is in a three-ring binder. You can buy dividers that already have the months of the year printed on them. Just file your monthly calendars in the binder with your planners in between. This is just the start. You can create sections in your binder for whatever you want. For instance, file your children`s school or sports schedules in your organizer. Just punch holes in the pages and file them in the appropriate month. You could also include a list of phone numbers and addresses, or a list of family birthdays and anniversaries.
