How do you plan your daily life?
There’s no single answer to this question. What works for some people may completely fail to organize your life leaving you even more overwhelmed.
While some people prefer maintaining an online schedule (using a spreadsheet), others feel more productive and inspired when actually putting their daily plans and tasks in writing on the actual paper (or a notebook).
You will have to build up your own productivity and task management system (which could be a good mix of both the approaches): We’ll give you all the productivity resources to do that.

How do you organize your to do list and prioritize your work using daily planner?
Again, there’s no right or wrong way to organize your to-do list, but here are a few tips for you:
- Instead of keeping your daily schedule updated, print out a blank planner every night before going to bed (or leaving your office) and write down your tasks scratch for the next day
- Move your undone tasks to the new daily planner every night, changing the priority (If it seems like you keep moving them again and again)
- Keep an eraser handy: A good to do list is the one that keeps changing
- Use all-in-caps to label important tasks that you do often. For example, I’d put TO WRITE or TO EDIT on my daily planner often. This way these tasks stand out
- Use – before each task to be able to turn it into a +. I prefer this system instead of simply checking off √ done tasks. Somehow changing – into + instills a feeling of accomplishment and keeps me moving forward through my tasks
- Include breaks (for stretching, walking, drinking water or – if you are like me – coffee) to never forget them
- Have a special “goal planner” and “long term projects” sections.
