A great planner organizer, recommended for ADD

Students often come to our department seeking advice from our organizing guru in organizing their student life. But organization is much like disabilities in that methods of organization have a few general principles — symptoms if you will — that apply to all areas of organizing but the act of organization is different for each individual.

But here is a planner that our organizing guru highly recommends, especially for students with ADD and other attention deficit disorders.

Planner Pad Organizer

The Planner Pad Organizer from plannerpads.com

The Planner Pad Organizer, from plannerpads.com, utilizes a funnel-like system to aid in prioritizing, organizing, and planning business and personal activities. The planner dedicates a two-page spread for each week, so you can see your entire weeks’ worth of planning with one look.

How the funnel system works is rather fundamental to the process of organization. First, the planner is broken up into 3 sections: the top acts as a To Do List; the second is your daily activity plan, and the third, lower section is your appointment book. As the picture above demonstrates, the planner creates a natural funnel of organization for planning your whole week. By filling out your weeks’ To Do List, you can see all the activities that need be done for the week. You can then visualize, prioritize, and organize your activities from your To Do List into your daily activity plan — the second, middle section. You select the things in your To Do List that need attention and assign specific days for that action. In the third, lower section — your appointment book — you then schedule to people you’ll be seeing, the meetings to attend, and the personal activities that have scheduled times.
