Get Creative with Your Calendar for a More Productive Day

Calendars & Planners...Much More Than Just Dates

As you transfer appointments and meetings to your new calendar, you might find that the current way you do things might not work. Ever forget about an important meeting because it wasn’t clearly written down? Are you just tired of how boring your current calendar is? We’ve outlined a few ideas to help you stay better organized, and make your calendar look nicer in the New Year.

Organize with Color Coding

Organize with Color Coding

This will allow you to separate different activities or tasks by a certain color. Red could be used for deadlines, green could be used for anything money related, while yellow could be used for medical appointments. This can be done simply with either stickers or a highlighter.

Consider Dry Erase Calendar Boards

Consider Dry Erase Calendar Boards

If you’re looking for a more eco-friendly solution, a dry-erase calendar board can help you add and remove dates as needed. It’s also an easy way for everyone to see your schedule. If space is tight and you already have a whiteboard that’s not in use, you can find various templates online to make your current whiteboard into a large calendar.

Break Down Your Day Into Blocks

For larger planners or calendars, try to draw a line between your morning and afternoon. Devoting exact chunks of time to a project or task will make you more productive.

White Space = Go Time

White Space = Go Time

If you have any whitespace at any point during your calendar, set it aside for yourself to work on an important project. To get in the habit of leaving space for work, review your calendar before committing yes to an appointment. It’s ok to say no every once in a while if you have an important deadline to meet.
