I have used nearly every planning tool in the last 10 years from the original Palm Pilot to my iPhone. While some of these devices have been well-constructed and useful, the thing I've come back to time and time again and have now consistently used for the last 4 years is my pocket 2-a-day planner.
In this electronic age, there's something truly refreshing about writing things on paper and tracking everything I do with a pencil and eraser. The format is such that 2 pages are devoted to each of your day. If you follow the original Covey principles and not get too mired down in all the other mumbo jumbo that is now there, you will find this to be an excellent planning system.
For the record, I'm a Director of Collections for a law firm in Nevada and have been for the last four years. The biggest obstacle I faced with using this planner was letting go and just trusting that it could be my sole planning tool. Other than that, my Outlook Express is strictly for contacts and email and my iPhone is for phone calls. Maybe all this sounds archaic, but I believe that the less complicated everything is, the easier it is to get the real work done.
My only real shock in this whole review is that no one has reviewed the product already. I'm a bit sad to see the dominance of the "ePlanning" devices that are out there on the market. With all this new technology, have we somehow advanced people's effectiveness into another level? Are people more prepared to face the troubles of the 21st Century with their electronic planning devices than those of the 20th Century? I have my opinions on this, but I'll let you draw your own conclusions. Take a look around you.
This post isn't meant to bash on all electronic planning devices, because I think they have their uses. I just wish that our society would see a renaissance of sorts, where electronic and paper can coexist as effective planning systems.

I enjoy writing down things I have to do every day and checking off what I have done, to get a sense of what I've accomplished for the day. This basic design does what it's supposed to do but I miss having other options, such as the "Bloom" style a couple of years back. Now, only one pocket size style is available...why? More choices would be nicer.

Use it everyday for organizing and prioritizing work and tasks. I'm very busy, so I can jot down thoughts or diagrams on 2nd page. Checking things off my list verifies I'm getting things done; i.e. shows my progress for the day, week, etc.
..Don't like having to carry a binder around though.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Comments about Pocket Original Ring-bound Daily Planner Refill - Oct 2014 - Sep 2015:
My main complaint is that the month tabs are not already installed. Every time I get a new year refill I have to sort all of the month tabs and install them where they should be. Why can't that be done at the factory?
