How To Organize Your Year Task Planner

Welcome to your 2024 Year Task Planner! You have your most powerful organization tool ready for a new year—now what? Today, we're guiding you through our top tips for transforming your planner into a personalized roadmap for the year ahead.

Organize Your Year Task Planner

  • Start with a holistic view
  • Plan for the month
  • Plan for the week

  • Start with a Holistic View

    Begin with a big-picture view of the year ahead. Your 2024 Year Task Planner features an annual calendar on the back of the first page perfect for highlighting notable dates. This spread is especially helpful to reference at the beginning of each month. Try using our Brass Page Markers to bookmark this page so it’s always easy to flip back to.


    Plan for the Month

    Once you have a holistic view of notable dates in your annual calendar, you can begin documenting monthly goals, action steps, appointments, and more. Your 2024 Year Task Planner has monthly tabs that make each month easy to find. After each monthly tab, you'll find a monthly goals and priorities spread. Use this space to list your goals for the month, and the monthly calendar spread on the following page to highlight the important dates you noted in your annual calendar.

    Plan for the Week

    It’s time to narrow your focus to planning for the week. Our fan-favorite 2024 Year Task Planner features a weekly view that's more than meets the eye. With a one-page week view for daily scheduling and reminders, a full page for priorities, tasks and to-dos, and room for notes, you have everything you need for optimizing your schedule. This is the spread that you will likely have open at your desk each day, so feel free to make it your own. Whether you need to timestamp deadlines, employ a color-coding system for tasks, or brainstorm new ideas in the margins, the Year Task Planner gives you structure for organization while providing the flexibility you need for your life.


    The key to organizing your 2024 Year Task Planner is to start with a holistic view of the year and then get more specific as you break down your monthly and weekly priorities. Remember to combine your planner with helpful writing tools and our Brass Page Markers for a combination that will help you get and stay organized. Once you start planning with pen and paper, you'll soon find yourself at ease with the process and become a planner-person in no time.
