The holiday season is way behind us, and 2016 is getting well into its stride. The new year has started hard and fast, it feels like you never had any time off, and you're already up to your eyeballs with stuff to do. There just aren't enough hours in the day, and you annoyingly have to concede that sleep is a necessity, even if you think the hours could be better spent elsewhere.
Most of the time, though, our biggest enemy isn't a lack of time: it's our lack of organizational skills. We just don't know how to sit down, straighten ourselves out, and get things done in an efficient and orderly fashion.
Calendar apps were created precisely for this: to help us establish some semblance of order, and work out which tasks are priorities, and which can be done after the urgent stuff is complete.
Here is a selection of the best iPhone calendar apps to organize your work, family, and social life in one neat place.
