Planner tabs are used to divide a paper planner into sections. My planner only has four tabs now.
I know that number comes as a shock to a lot of planner people. It's crazy low, right?
It works, though, because I select the tabs so carefully.
I use no tab for my dashboard (consisting of sticky notes and blank paper).
After that, I put my projects section (not pictured). I used to have my master task list after that, but since I rarely use it except as a dumping ground, I made that list one of my active projects!
(That's a little bit brilliant. Don't you agree?)
Then I have calendar, future, and notes.
I still use tons of post-it tabs, to mark project sections or notes sections. But having only four permanent tabs means a lighter, thinner profile for my planner. It also mean, ironically, that I get to things more quickly when I have fewer options.
How many tabs do you have? What are they labeled as?
