The planning diary has been designed for the executives, who wants to be sure that, above all, his plan of the month takes timely care of essential priorities on which the results of the year’s working depend. Policy decisions and plans for their implementation, plans relating to production, expansion, organisation, financing, purchasing, pricing, distribution, advertising and sales promotion.
The planning is done on priorities basis. If dates not reserved for essential priorities they are then left for top level contacts, day to day appointment and administration. Thus, the planning diary can and, in all probability, will help effect substantial earnings, otherwise lost due to postponed action during vital days or in the second or third weeks of the month caused by the pressure of the tasks on that particular day. A reminder can be placed in your mobile or personal computer to make note of it and inform and remind you on that particular day.
For a dependable plan of essential priorities and free appointment days, mark off, first of all, non available days, holidays, leave, anniversaries, conventions etc. with the aid of the forget me not labels. It will leave a clear list of actual working days for the plan of the particular month and the year round.
