Moleskine has a new planner format: Panoramic. I’m not sure it really lives up to the term ‘panoramic’, but it’s a neat idea. I’m probably going to be shopping for a new planner, as I use them for tracking workout data and as fall grows near I may head to the gym again.
What I’d like to see is a planner-style book, but designed more as a log than as a planner. I don’t know how many people use planners for recording what has happened rather than what is going to happen, but I know I do. I record my hours at work, my weight, and other useful tidbits. I know I could just use a regular notebook, but have a page/spot devoted to each day puts a little pressure on keeping up the record.
Anyway, there would be no time slots, and weekend days would be the same size as weekdays. Currently I’m using the softcover 1-page per week version, and it works pretty well. I’m on the fence about the notes page that faces the week page. Sometimes I use it, but mostly it lies blank. It would be nice to have that space added to each day.
