Managing a Planner

One of the most important parts of each January for me is setting up my new planner.  Although I like the tactile feel of maintaining a paper planner at my home, I am one of those people who loves technology so I also use an electronic calendar.  


My choice for electronic calendar programs is to use Google Calendar.  This gives me the ability to log in to Google from any location to access it, as well as so many other functions.  I "share" my Google Calendar with my husband and my college-aged daughter.  This means that their appointments show up on my calendar, and mine on theirs.  Each of us has a different color so that it's easy to spot who's doing what.  With busy lives, this makes planning group activities much simpler. 

Google Calendar gives me the ability to hide some calendars from sight so that I can just look at my appointments without distraction.  I also use a different color for my personal appointments and my business appointments.  Having access to my Google calendar on my Droid phone gives me the ability to add, check and change appointments on the go.

Although it allows for adding "tasks", I prefer my paper planner for that.  I keep a running list that gets updated each week, checking off tasks as they are completed (don't you just love checking off a list?!) and carrying over unfinished and recurring tasks to the next week.  Keeping my to-do lists in my planner ensures that I can find them and check in with them regularly.

How do you keep up with your agenda?

This is wonderful! I love the bit about hoping. That's the thing that really got me to make my final decision to sign with my agent; she had this amazing optimism just leaking out of her pores when she called to offer representation..
