What are you planning to do these days? There is no right answer for what is the best daily planner for you versus any other mover and shaker. A personal planner that just has the bare minimum days, calendars and maybe a to-do list could work for some.
Others want cute planners with my motivational quotes, dream boards, doodle paper and funny cover art. And still, others are more invested in a good busy planner that understands their hectic lifestyle. To find the best productivity planners for your needs, first think of why you would be better off with a daily planner in the first place.
What exactly do you always lose track of? Where do you find yourself needing the most post-it notes or digital reminders? Make sure your planner has all of those features first. Then it is time to look at the bells and whistles available on others, like the 12 below.

It goes past your average post-it note on a wall calendar and allows you the opportunity to really set the standard for your day or month.
If you’re into motivational quotes (whether pre-printed or writing your own), there are options above to help inspire you. If you’d rather have plenty of space to take control of how you want your planner to look, go straight to undated pages, plenty of notes and doodle options, and ways to set out your daily/monthly planner options for months (or years) to come.
Or, maybe you’re looking for something more professional that follows strict guidelines about months, days and years, and even your water intake and meal plan. That’s covered, too. With all of the options above, the goal is to expand your imagination and make your day-to-day planning work for what you need, as opposed to what the printer printed.
Once the year is up, this book may be a reference to or a journal, something you can look back on to make sure past goals were complete. Keep it for the mailing address and contact information options. And don’t forget to take advantage of all the add-ons like rulers, sticky pads, note paper and gift boxes. Plan to spend your day making it that much better.
