The cover has my 2nd favorite combination (after rainbow) – black and gold foil!
The planner is quite fat, however because of the bookbinding it still feels light.
The planner has the usual thing belongs to page followed by a getting started guide with tips on how to use each page
Goal Setting Pages
There are heaps of goal setting pages in this planner. Examples of how to use each page are also included.
Example of how to use the worksheet:
Start with defining your top 5 goals.
Then break it down into steps…
Love the ‘by’ section. You could use this for due dates or assigning tasks to people in your team
90 Days habit tracker
I love habit trackers. There’s a certain sense of satisfaction that comes with crossing things off. This planner has a very visual habit tracker (that reminds me of a periodic elements chart).
30 Day Overview
Since this is an undated planner you can start using it at anytime. This 30 day overview is slightly different to a normal monthly calendar – there are no days of the week pre-printed.
I like that no boxes will ever be split in 2 when a week ends as is sometimes the case with traditional calendars.
This planner kind of glosses over the fact that some months have 31 days in them, but it does mean you can start at any time during a month – it doesn’t have to be on the 1st.
The notes sidebar is a bit useless – it’s way too narrow (the dotted line is only 1.5″ / 2cm long)
Example from the planner:
The weekly planner starts on a Sunday. The vertical columns for each day are quite narrow and small however there is lined writing space.
There are 2 pages to plan each day which doesn’t happen very often with planners. There is no pre-filled schedule / hourly timeslots (yay!) instead there’s just an AM and PM section. Tons of checklist space, large lined notes section and top 5 – I doubt you’d run out of room to plan.
Inspirational quotes are scattered throughout the entire planner.
Since I prefer to use weekly planners, I’m going to convert this layout into a weekly planner. This is my plan:
- Top 5 is going to become my 5 blog posts for the week
- I’m going to use whiteout over the AM and PM to turn it into ‘little things’ and ‘meal plan’ sections
- Keep the checklist and notes space as is (I’ll probably use the notes section for more lists)
At the end of each week, there are a ‘rewrite your goals’ and ‘rewrite your actions’ pages. The inclusion of these pages reminds me of that part of bullet journaling where the idea of the repeated writing things down is to work out your priorities and stay motivated to finish them, or ditch those tasks altogether.
End of goal review
There are no tabs in this planner however there are markings on the side to help you find what day you’re up to.
8 lined notes pages
12 blank notes pages
The planner also comes with 5 sheets of stickers. I’m a sucker for icon stickers however I wish they were in foil like the others to keep it all coordinated.
I don’t know what it is about hardbound planners and notebooks, but the paper always seems to have a yellow tinge and is prone to pen bleed through.
I tried various ballpoint, gel, fine tip and marker tip pens – there was ghosting on the back side of the page for all of them. Same with highlighters, Frixon stamps and the Mambi stamps 🙁
Pros of the Planner
- Portable size
- Minimalist color scheme
- Undated – start at anytime
- Tons of goal setting pages
- 2 pages to plan each day (in a very functional layout)
- 2 page weekly spread
- 2 page monthly calendar
- More notes pages than most planners include
Cons of the Planner
- The columns for each day in the weekly spread are too narrow
- Only lasts for 90 days so will be quite expensive if you use it for an entire year
- The paper is yellow, not white
- The paper had bad ghosting / en bleed through
Would I use this planner?
I wouldn’t use this every day for an entire year, probably only for ‘seasons’ i.e. when creating and launching new things such as an ecourse, designing a new planner for my shop etc. I really like the level of detail this planner goes into for planning – much more than most planners.
