With every new year, every new quarter, or any opportunity to make a fresh and strategic start, you need a planning process. A calendar, diary, or planner can help you stay organized and keep yourself accountable. While there are a lot of options, it seems the best productivity planners are those that provide a lot of space for both brainstorming and creating an actionable list of to-do items.

Remember that planners can be either digital or print, or both. If you work better when you write down the things you hope to accomplish, choose a notebook or journal when you’re trying to boost your productivity. If you prefer to work online with speed and a digital platform, you’ll want to download a planner that can help you meet your goals. The best productivity tools depend on who you are and how you work.
