3 Ways of Color-Coding Your Planer Without Losing Your Mind
Wow, that is a long tittle. Color-coding normally seems like a hassle. I started using color markers because my planner was black and white. It was simple, and the lack of color made me sad. Then, I realized that color-coding will help me a lot when it comes to completing tasks and keeping up with everything. I am a girl who takes every credit I am allowed to, I write for Her Campus Drexel, I am part of religious organizations, edit for my schools newspaper, and have a very active social life. Color-coding helps me to recognize the task without actually reading it. There are several ways of color-coding, and this color-code obsessed girl is here to help you find the best way for you:
By Dates: I have seen people write down task depending on how much time they have left until the deadline. Orange is when you have three weeks to do it, purple when you have two weeks and pink when there is just one left. Some people find this helpful since they can visualize what is a priority that week and what should be done by that day. If you are a person that completes a task depending on the due date, then this color code system is perfect for you.
By Class and Organization: there is people that are taking several classes, and it is easier to assign a color to each of them. You know that pink is for your english class and orange will be math. This is extremely helpful when your life is really school orientated and you have a lot of classes going on. It helps also if you are part of organizations and you assigned a color for them
By Task: it is helpful if you assign a color for each task you do. Green goes for class to do’s, red for deadlines, purple for readings, and blue for social events. You get the idea, each task will get a color so when you see orange you know that is related to gym and health stuff
this past year my color code system was a combination of all of these. I knew that everything green was what i needed to complete that day. I had colors assigned for my organizations, for social events and for health stuff. Of course I had a color assigned for my blog too,
