|Today’s tip: Coordinate your paper planner and smartphone|
You’ve got two great tools for organizing your time, a paper planner and a smartphone, but don’t quite know how to make it work.
Create specific rules for how you use each tool. Use these guidelines:
- Smartphone: monthly schedule, appointment reminders, master task list (bucket), contact list, email
- Paper planner: today’s prioritized schedule and task list, daily notes
It’s important that you benefit from the strengths of each planner – the smartphone’s fast digital memory and the planner’s accessible writing surface. By creating an effective digital and paper planner system you can stay organized and avoid redundant writing or typing.
- Your specific needs may differ — try the rules above and modify your system to what’s comfortable for you
- For your smartphone planner, use Day-Timer’s new Plan2Go app for Android and iPhone and combine your calendar and tasks into one daily view
