When it comes to planning, everyone is different! You may have more to plan or less. You may like to write out every task in your planner or just the most important ones. Perhaps you plan best with a lot of white space!

Plus, portability might be an important feature for you. Do you like to bring your planner around with you or do you typically leave it on your desk?
