Hourly planning is the act of mapping out one's daily activities. Hourly planning can involve writing down a schedule, having a to-do list, deciding on what meals are going to be eaten or how much money can be spent, and other daily issues of concern. Hourly planning often happens with the use of a daily hourly planner template.

How to use a hourly planner?

Follow these steps in order to make an effective hourly planner:

  • Check your planner often; it is important that you use your planner after each planned activities. Consider what responsibilities and tasks you have on that day. Take your planner with you, and make it a habit to check it often. Keep it somewhere visible if at all possible. For example, place the master lesson plan template on your desktop on your computer, so every day it's visible.
  • Write it down. All of it; if you know it will happen or if you want it to happen, write it down in your planner. That includes birthday parties, dinner parties, appointments, meetings, projects, trips, vacations, everything that is important to you, including some time for fun. The easiest way to plan for something to happen is by writing it in your planner before you have the chance to schedule something else in its place.
  • Set aside time to review the day ahead; designate a time each day to review your planner for the day ahead so you know what’s happening. It doesn’t matter if you choose to spend time in the morning reviewing your day, or if you decide to do it the night before. Just make sure it’s a time spent with no distractions so you can concentrate on the day and tasks ahead.
  • Be realistic; try not to over-schedule your hourly tasks. Be realistic and don’t schedule more than you can handle or you’ll find yourself frustrated and discouraged.
