I generally recommend using a day planner/calendar that has a whole day to a page (or at the very least a full column). With this sort of format, you will be able to write down all your To-Dos with accompanying notes. Even though, I use an e-calendar (iCal), I still use a written day planner as well. Studies show that writing things down helps one retain that information better. And I like to write some notes. Been using the Preference Collection for decades.
