I love using a planner. It truly saves me over and over again. Without it, I am sure I would forget appointments or fail to complete tasks. A few years ago, I decided to create my own planner so that I could tailor it to my own specific needs. I have it printed and spiral bound every year at the college bookstore.

There is one page that I particularly love and use every day. It is called Priority One, and I have one for “personal” priorities and one for “professional” priorities. The page has 6 blocks the size of post-it notes. Every day, I identify my 6 most important tasks for the day and write each one on a post-it  note. Then, I arrange them in order of priority on this sheet. When I complete a task, I pull off the post-it note. It is a great feeling if I end my day with all of the post-it notes removed! However, if I do not finish everything by the end of the day, I just leave those tasks on the sheet. The next day I add more notes and rearrange in order of priority.

This can easily be used for staying on top of college assignments, as well. I am sharing these two downloadable PRIORITY ONE sheets with you. Put them in a 3-ring binder, laminate, and/or hang them in a place where you will see them every day. I hope you like it as much as I have!
