I have previously talked about making the switch to digital planners.
I have finally gotten around to designing a weekly and a daily digital planner for 2023. The color scheme is gray and white, which is unobtrusive, perfect for planning, and easy to customize. Check them out on Etsy!
You can choose from different planner covers.
There are different pages for a yearly overview with functional links. I personally use the year map for marking weekends, start and end dates for residency rotations, and different planned leaves (vacation, study, etc.) that I have for the year.
There is also a monthly overview, which lets you plan the month and write goals, notes… I leave spaces for headers blank so it’s easier to customize, particularly if you like using digital stickers. There are invisible hyperlinks to the two types of weekly layouts: a horizontal three-subject spread and a vertical scheduler. Each day in the monthly and weekly spread are hyperlinked to daily pages (in the daily planner).
The daily planner is left uncluttered on purpose, with a mini-calendar in the lower left corner for reference, a blank space next to it, and a scheduler, space for priorities, other to-do’s, and notes. I did not add extra templates to this planner because I have found that personally, the many number of templates tend to overwhelm me and actually distract me from being productive.
Finally, there is a section for notes and project planning. These sections have an index with hyperlinked tabs, as shown below. The weekly and daily pages also have hyperlinks to enable quickly locating these sections.
I’m excited to be using these planners for next year. As always, let me know of any feedback!
