Can you believe it's November already?
So that means:
- there's only 55 days until Christmas
- there's only 61 days left in 2010
I'm not trying to send you in a panic, but you should be thinking about your 2011 day planner.
You're not going to use that awful black one issued by the office, are you?
I've got a better solution - Dotmine Day Planners.
You're going to love these because:
- You can personalize it to your lifestyle.
- There are not only different kinds, but lots of pretty covers to choose from (more available from Borders, which carries their exclusive line!).
- You get 17 months of planning - which is really what you need in order to get ahead (and you can work and go to school and it will help you track both).
- They are affordable - $13.99 and $19.99.
Busy professional meets busy life—brought together with a fashionable flair! Efficiently keep track of all appointments: personal, professional and family! Record recurring meetings, activities and appointments. You’re sure to love this life-saver of a planner!
I am using the life_time.mine Day Planner in Blue. The life_time planners combine work and family life, which is perfect for me.
It goes from Sept 2010 to January 2012, so I can use it now (No waiting until January! I love it!) . The size (7" x 9") is great: not too big, not too small. The sky blue leather cover is pretty and contemporary without being distracting. I'm happy for the colourful pattern on the inside cover though - who wants everything to be plain?
For planning out your life, you'll love that it lies flat, and that a week on 2 pages gives you a great indication of what you're doing and lots of room to lay it all out.
On the left-hand side of your schedule is a perforated Work Sheet and on the right, a perforated Life Sheet. This allows you to list what needs to get done, picked up, dropped off, seen, read, cooked, etc. and take the list with you. I'm telling you, it's no surprise that women designed this because they know that these kinds of features are not only lifesavers, but lifechangers!
In addition to all of that, there's a nice wide pocket at the back (you need to put all that stuff somewhere - now you've actually got a place for it), a ribbon bookmark to keep your place (thank you!) and neat planning pages that help you figure out the next step.
If you want to do more and be more, Dotmine Day Planners will help you get there.
