Having a to-do list is very important to being organized, but a good calendar is just as important. There are many different types of calendars available and which one you get depends on your preference. One option is the monthly desk top kind. This one is good because it allows you to see what you have planned all at once and quickly find upcoming events. It also has negatives. One is that the little squares may not be enough room to put all of your things that you have to do. Another type of calendar is the book or planner type. This allows you to have lots of things on each day and most even have times pre-printed. However it is difficult to find things that you have going on in the upcoming weeks. It can be hard to find a meeting that you have planned weeks in advance. No matter what type of calendar you choose, make sure you find one that works for you. Planning ahead and writing events down is essential to maintaining organization.
