Here's a quick update on some things I'm doing these days to make my planner work for me.
Pick Three Things
I'm picking three things on my task lists that need to be done each day. In the picture above, there is a tiny pink "*" and a tiny pink "am" on the left side of the left task list. They remind me of the important stuff (one which needs to be done in the morning).
Have a Weekly List
I tried not to have a weekly list, but some tasks just need to be done this week, but not any certain day (like buying a gift for a weekend birthday party).
So I added it back on top of my context lists.
Speaking of context lists...
Use a Paperclip When Moving the Context Lists
The paperclip keeps the context lists lined up perfectly when I move them from day-to-day or week-to-week (if you are a weekly planner person).
I attach it to the last page ONLY of the last list when the lists are in use, so I can still easily flip through the lists.
If you have other simple ideas for using a planner, note them in the comments!
