Another important planning tool is an insert. These are used together with dashboards on many occasions, since this is where you are most likely to place an insert. However, this is not the only place an insert can be found. Inserts are also printable or ready-made, giving planners the option to customize them. An insert can be of very many kinds, for example:
• To-do list
• Meal planner
• Daily/ Monthly planner
• Yearly planner
• Blank notes
These are just examples of what you could include on an insert, though inserts are not limited to these. Some more specific and specialized inserts could be for, say, business projects. In such an insert, you would have enough space to clearly outline a business project which you would not have had on your other pages. Afterwards, you would be at liberty to transfer individual sections of the overall plan to the monthly tasks list.
A good insert should come in a compact all in one lay out that flows from one section to another. It should clearly show correlation between different aspects. Like for a business project planner insert, it should allow you to schedule your yearly, monthly and weekly goals in a seamless manner. It should also make it possible to schedule appointments and seminars that are directly related to the scheduled activities. In this way, it does not end up causing confusion instead of creating order.
A well-designed insert should also allow your important projects’ details to be outlined and then juxtaposed onto the overall plan, all in the same place.
