That's why the vertical-day format of our 2019 Planner is so comfortable to use. At first glance you might say, "that's not enough space for me!" But by the end of week two you'll find that you listen more intently, note less and have greater clarity about what happened in your day.
The hourly break down is a reference that easily becomes bullets or anchors a grid.
