A Ramadan Planner designed to your specifications…

Assalamu Alaikum.

“Ahaa, finally my perfect Ramadan planner!”

Wait.

Read the whole post before jumping to any conclusions…

So, let me start with my story.

I had been in search of the “perfect” planner, not for Ramadan but for the whole year. I had found many nice ones but they didn’t have everything that I wanted.

Each time I came across a nice time management program or an excellent paper planner, there was always the inevitable story of how the creator of the planner had been in search of the perfect planner and had then ended up designing their own planner – which of course was “perfect”, because it was designed to his/her own specifications.

Of course, these individuals then attempted to sell or share (for free) their “perfect” planners to others.

I guess I’m not the smartest person in the world because it took me years to finally put 2 and 2 together: If I wanted the “perfect” planner, I would have to design my own.

And that’s what I did, alhamdulillah.

Now, you might be saying “Oh so you’re going to share your perfect planner with us??”

Of course not. It’s my planner therefore it’s suited to MY specifications.

If you want a perfect planner, you need to make your own. It’s simple. Just open up an excel sheet and start working.

That’s what I did and now I have a nice, beautiful daily planner and a nice, beautiful monthly planner, both of them designed according to my tastes.

[What about my Ramadan planner, you ask? Well, I’m just going to take my daily planner and adjust it for Ramadan, insha-Allah.]

So, don’t sit and search for the perfect planner because you’re probably not going to find it.

Just design it yourself.
