Do I need my daily planner?

January 10th, 2013

Do you need your daily planner? The answer to that is an easy one and the key point is organization.

Organization: The structure or arrangement of related or connected items.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A daily planner is always useful and can be a great way to keep organized depending on the type of person you are.

Having a daily planner can always come in use. Since daily planners are usually small, you can carry them in your backpack, a purse, or other small places.

Here are different ideas of things you can write down in your daily planner:

– Homework or assignments from class.

– Meetings or appointments you have scheduled: Dentist, doctor, tutoring, sports games or practices, meetings for an organization like band or a club, study groups, and so on.

– Phone numbers for friends and classmates – that way you can have a copy of their numbers in case you lose your cell phone. It is recommended that you have a study buddy for each class, that way you have someone to contact in case you miss a class or need information about something your teacher said.

– Your planner is also a great place to write down your class schedule.

– Notes that come up during the day. A planner is always handy so you can write things down and always have a piece of paper to write on. Some people use their planner to scribble down information that they don’t want to forget during the day… i.e: Song names, lyrics to songs, directions, plans you made with friends for after school or on the weekends, and other crucial information.

If you don’t want to use a planner, there is always the option of buying a desk calendar or one that you can hang on your wall. Being organized can be very helpful and make your day a lot more efficient.
