Color Coded Schedule

Prioritize your daily tasks and keep track of progress towards personal and career goals using color.

I use yellow to highlight tasks that must be completed that day.

Pink indicates activities or plans after work.  With a busy work schedule it can be easy to forget other plans you have made.  I’ve found highlighting these plans in my planner helps me remember.

I’ve been trying to stick to a personal fitness goal this year.  I draw orange dots on the days I fit in a workout.  It’s rewarding to see the progress I make every week towards this goal.

The Bigger The Better

For my daily sanity, I use a classic size planner and binder. However, when I know a project will takes months and months, and I’ll need to take notes-on-end, I supplement with a monarch sized notepad (Botanica is my favorite). I only use it for one project at a time, whatever is the biggest on my to-do list.

My Planner, Tabbed Up

I love to put tabs onto my planner pages on days where I know I have major meetings. This lets me quickly turn to a meeting and jot down reminders or assignments. I’m currently using Avery Note Tabs, which I can writing on and they last forever! They are very sturdy and blend in well with my Real Life Adventures planner.
