I'm heading to graduate school soon and I'm trying to develop good habits and a good routine in preparation for that change. I've never been good with physical planners (I lose them or forget to write in them) but I always have my iPad so I'm trying to find an app that meets my needs and could use some input.
I already have Planner Plus. It's good for keeping track of events, of specific times and dates and deadlines and I use it for that with some success.
What I really want, though, is something to help with this sort of weekly plan/checklist that I want to start keeping. To give you a clearer example, this is what I made in Reminders today
. The problem with this is that the list headings will have to change with each week, due to the date, as will the subtext on each listed reminder. Changing the subtext involves changing the reminder start and end date. Furthermore, adding a new reminder means I have to do all these steps all over again. It's clunky and clunkiness and inefficiency will derail my attempts to get organized.
What I'd like is some sort of list system that allows me to create lists of weekly goals. I could set options for these lists, like daily reminders by an alarm, inclusion in the pulldown Notification screen, or some other hard-to-ignore presentation, ideally with color coding. That way, I don't need to set options for the individual goals themselves, all I have to do is change the list's date.
Do y'all know of anything like this? I know this is kind of a weird request and pretty specific but any help would be appreciated.
