The METIS Planner is a complete printed planner system that allows busy professionals and active students to uniquely plan, allocate time, and reflect on everything they have to do!
The METIS Planner is unsurpassed in its design to help users find the time to do what needs to be done ...
The METIS Planner
is the first
Identify all of your To Do’s and note any due dates.
Address simple and quick tasks and mark them as completed.
Time Boxing is a time management technique where a fixed time period, called a time box, is allocated for a specific activity. By integrating the tracking of To Do items directly in a user's daily schedule, the METIS Planner provides an ideal solution for managing one or more To Do lists while utilizing a Time Boxing approach. The flexible design of the METIS Planner allows users to selectively determine the duration of any time box.
Active Integrated Time Boxing is a Trademark of METIS Planner
For the remaining tasks, prioritize the critical few and estimate the time required.
Then, mark these tasks as scheduled.
For the To Do tasks that have been marked as “scheduled,” block out the estimated time in your daily calendar.
Then, track progress and allocate additional time as required.

Should You Buy The METIS Planner?
The METIS Planner is for You if ...
You Should Skip the METIS Planner if ...
You sometimes feel overwhelmed by all of your scheduled activities and your never ending lists of things to do.
The METIS Planner is designed to help you tame your to do lists so that you can do what needs to be done so that you have the time to do what you want to do.
You have no scheduled activities. You never have any items to add to a to do list.
While the blank pages of the METIS Planner are a beautiful example of minimalist graphic design and would make a gorgeous coffee table book, a photography focused book would likely be a better choice.
You are a busy professional looking to get an edge in the work place.
The METIS Planner includes a collection of tools designed to help you stay organized on the job. The Personal Agenda downloadable will allow you to maximize the effectiveness of any planned or impromptu meeting. And the Performance Review Tracker will allow you to stay focused on long term goals and capture key accomplishments.
You plan on participating in the colonization of Mars on or before 2020.
The METIS Planner is based on 24 hours a day and 365 days per year. Unfortunately, a day on Mars is 24 hours and 37 minutes and one Mars year is 687 Earth days long. Please contact customer support if you would like to commission a METIS Planner MARS Edition.
You are an active student juggling classes, work, and extracurricular activities.
The METIS Planner includes a wide range of Academic and Job/Internship focused tools so that you never lose track of an important assignment.
The 4-Year College Planning tool could easily save you an extra semester or two by ensuring that you have a workable and flexible plan to complete all required courses.
The collection of Grad School prep tools allow you to plan ahead to maximize your options for attending Law School, Medical School, or pursue any post graduate degree.
You are a theoretical physicist working on a quantum computer and have successfully reversed the direction of time.
While most laws of physics make no distinction between the future and the past and allow the arrow of time to be multi-directional, the METIS Planner assumes time always points from the past to the future. The METIS Planner is based on the assumption that time is a precious nonrenewable resource and that organizing and managing your schedule is the best way to extract more free time from your day.
You are an Education Major beginning your student teaching or a teacher/college professor looking to get more organized.
The METIS Planner includes a comprehensive set of planning and tracking tools designed by a young teacher. These tools include:
- Monthly Planner
- Weekly Log Book
- Weekly Lesson Planner
- Grade Book and Participation Log
- IEP and Behavioral Log Books
- Parent/Guardian Contact Log
- And numerous subject specific tracking tools (e.g. reading log, math log, sight word tracker, etc)
You are allergic to paper.
The METIS Planner is designed to be an analog paper based system. You may have an on-line calendar, on-line task manager, on-line budget tracker, on-line exercise log, on-line food log, on-line this and on-line that; of course there’s an app for that. But with so many diverse apps and a 5 or 6 inch screen, it’s hard to get a really good view of what your week entails. Your METIS Planner is optimized to let you see your weekly schedule and weekly to do’s all at once so nothing gets lost on another screen.
You love the feeling of checking off a completed task.
Most planners just help you plan and schedule meetings. The METIS Planner, however, is designed to help you organize long term projects, short term projects, and to make sure you allocate time to get everything done.
As you get each item done, there is ample space to place a satisfying check before relaxing or moving on to the next task.
You are anti-technology.
The METIS Planner is is a marvel of modern technology. Every printed METIS Planner is:
- Operating system independent
- Comes with an ultra high resolution full color capable display
- Supports pen, pencil, and marker input devices
- Has an infinite battery life
- Is completely wireless
