Studies show that handwriting lists and plans are more effective than digitally tracking. To some, the idea of carrying around a monthly calendar brings up images of small, monthly calendars the size of a checkbook kept in mother's purses and used more for monthly reminders and appointments than anything else.
Life coaches and household organization experts agree that keeping a pen-and-paper record of goals, to-do lists, and appointments aide in reaching goals and finishing to-do lists much more quickly and effectively than those who do not.
Nowadays there are so many more options for planners that are a far cry from the small purse calendars of our mothers! Regular planners bought in box stores offer the standard monthly, weekly, or daily view on a page in a generic font and standard cover. However, the internet provides many specialty stores that offer luxurious planners that can be customized to each individual customer.
These luxury planners offer a range of choices and styles to truly customize and personalize each planner to the individual. High-end, or luxury planners, allow you to go section by section before ordering to create a layout that will work best for your life.
Choose to have your weekly layout start on a Sunday or Monday; add a timeline with thirty minute intervals to each day; or have the daily sections go horizontally or vertically. Many of these planners also give you the option to use a personal picture as the cover, or to choose from a wide-variety of standard colors and designs.
Not only are these planners much cuter on your arm than the former, standard issue black, customers can add options to help organize and plan out whatever path their life is on.
