While there’s an app for just about everything these days, the very best way to get organized–and stay organized—is by writing down goals, important dates and tasks in a planner. That becomes your blueprint for organizing your busy life, keeping track of deadlines and remembering special days. Here’s how to get started!

Inspirational quotes may not get you to your doctor’s appointment or child’s soccer practice on time. But they will motivate you to keep going when you’re stretched too thin or need help getting a project off the ground. Use blank calendar days or lines to write down quotes that resonate with you. Then flip through whenever you’re in need of a little push in the right direction.

A monthly overview is an important planner feature. Spend a little time before the start of each new month filling it in with the most important dates—birthdays, anniversaries or major work deadlines. It allows you to see everything that’s coming up at a glance and give yourself ample time to plan ahead.

Using your planner to write down daily, weekly, monthly and even yearly goals keeps them top of mind so you can consistently track and review your progress. And if ideas or brainstorms to further those goals come to you at any time throughout the week, you have a place in your planner to write it all down. A smaller size allows you to carry the planner in your purse for whenever inspiration strikes.
