Choose the perfect planner (3)

This is part 3 in our choose the perfect planner series.

In our quest for the perfect planner, we’ve discussed…

Paper or electronic

Size of planner and of lines

Today we’re talking about space per day

Daily format

Do you like the week-at-a-glance over two pages or a page-a-day format?

My favourite is the weekly format because I do weekly planning. I find there's just enough space to jot down my 3 - 5 Eat the Frog tasks every day. So it forces me to focus.

However, this beauty is a page a day.

That’s not a bad thing so I live with it.

Evening appointments

I also like a planner with plenty of space for evening activities. With many planners, I find that there’s such a small space for the evening and my evenings are hectic – gym, coaching, teleseminars, etc.

Other space requirements

I also like space for notes, not just appointments. So this planner has them both.

We’re almost there and by now you should have a really good idea of what works for you.

Which do you prefer – page a day or week-at-a-glance?

Keep reading for part 4 in our series.

For me the ultimate planner would be weekly format with enough space for a few appointments/tasks each day. I also like space to be able to list out tasks that I need to do for the week, but I don't really care what day the task gets done, just as long as it is done sometime that week. Oh, and place to take a few notes. That's not too much to ask is it?!
