Chris has also developed a unique daily calendar called The Better Dayplanner, which is tailored for entrepreneurs and success-oriented individuals who need to plan for more than an 8-to-5 job. The Better Dayplanner spans a long day from 5:00 am to 9:00 pm and includes features to aid in short- and long-range planning as well as prompts for reflecting on the events of the past month. The Better Dayplanner is more than just a calendar -- it’s a tool for becoming more productive and successful.

The New Year. Time to get organized, right?

I’ve been there too: make the annual resolution to get more organized, buy a day planner, use it for a few weeks.

By Valentine’s Day I’d usually forgotten it and lost the thing under piles of paper on my desk.

Another 40 bucks down the drain – and the feeling of guilt every time I found that expensive paperweight.

Often I’d try again in summertime, and maybe even buckle down and use the dayplanner for few more weeks, but for some reason I couldn’t — or wouldn’t — stick with it.

Then a few years ago it dawned on me: I was trying to use something that didn’t fit the way I work. Like tight, uncomfortable shoes that come with a rented tuxedo (you know, for the June wedding I neglected to write in my planner back in March).

Wait a Minute, Your Way-Smarter-Than-Me-Phone Has a Great Calendar Built In, Right?

Two words: dead battery.

I know, I know, you can put in recurring appointments and awesome Star Wars light-saber battle alarm tones and sync up your schedule with your computers at work and at home and never be out of touch with your calendar again. (And yes, I use Google Calendar for events both my wife and I need to keep track of, like kids’ school functions and vacations.)

But I bet I can flip my planner open and write down an appointment faster than you can click and drag and type and save. And I probably won’t accidentally delete what I wrote in pen.

Maybe I’m just old-school, but I like having things in writing.

Plus I can scribble a quick arrow or star to make a change. Or add a quick note on the page without fumbling around with my phone or iPad or SuperDuperTablet3000.

Trust me, real men (and women) still use paper.
