You’ll get the most out of your planner if it’s well-structured but also leaves plenty of room for writing down notes, details and reflections. There should be space for to-do lists alongside your schedule. You might also motivate yourself with inspiring quotes or images to focus on each week.

You’ll want not only a monthly calendar and weekly calendar, but also a single-day view with an hour-by-hour calendar and a to-do list. That way, you can fill in your goals for each day as well as each week and month. Don’t forget to leave space for writing goal descriptions.

Daily planners typically include:

  • personal or professional goals
  • important dates and appointments
  • tasks and activities to be completed each day
  • upcoming events
  • holiday plans
  • the weather
  • budget information
  • prompts for reflection such as inspiring quotes or daily gratitude exercises.
