There are planners that say they’re designed to ‘help you reach your goals’.. But then it’s just a generic horizontal / vertical / hourly layout like most other planners. These 10 are planners that I think are actual goal planners. There are many more goal planners, but these are my current favorites.
In no particular order…
1. Mi Goals
MI Goals is one of my all time favorite planners! I bought my first in 2017, again in 2018 and 2019. It’s not the prettiest of planners but very functional and one of the very few sewn bound planners I will actually use. It used to be lay flat (2017 & 2018 editions) but sadly the 2019 version doesn’t lay as flat on it’s own unless it’s the middle pages of the planner. They’re an Aussie company which for me = cheap shipping.

A random find at Paperchase when I was in London – this undated planner has very visual goal planning pages. I think it would be ideal to someone starting an Instagram, Youtube, blog etc.
3. Otto Goals
If you don’t need multiple pages to plan your goals – try the Otto Goals Planner. Colorful + functional planning pages. The only con is that the line spacing is quite small.
See my review of the planner in this post.
My favorite part is the monthly goals page.
4. Happy Planner Project Refills
I’m a sucker for just about anything Happy Planner – especially their filler sheets.
Lots of goal planners focus on entrepreneurial / business goal planning. If that doesn’t interest you, these project pages would be a better option.
Their project refills come in multiple colors so you can color code e.g. travel plan, a project at home etc.
While they’re only 1 page, there’s plenty of lined notes and checklist MAMBI refills, or try some of my half sheet printables.
Cute, functional and comes in multiple page sizes.
Plus it has my favorite layout – horizontal 1 page weekly + lists, goals on the other page. Review in this post.
If you only work on projects during ‘seasons’ of your life and not constantly, then a planner like the 90x Goal Planner may be a better fit. There’s a few planners like this available these days – where you can stop and start using them as needed.
See my review of the planner in this post
If affordable + colorful ticks the boxes for you, try the Recollections Goals Planner (review here)
Another planner with very comprehensive goal planning pages. This one actually incorporates your goals into the planning pages – it’s not just a self-directed, open ended layout like most planners. Plus it’s discbound!
See my review in this post.
For a cross between a bullet journal and a list notebook, try the Action Plan Book. Ideal for planning smaller goals or if you don’t want to be restricted by structured goal planning pages that the other planners on this list have.
Can’t find exactly what you want? Make your own! Agendio allows you to create a custom planner from scratch. You can choose list pages, dot grid, lined, graph, pages with as many columns as you like, you add what ext you need etc. One of my pet peeves is when planners don’t include enough pages to map out your goals, with this custom notebook option you do pay a bit more, but you can include as many pages to suit your exact needs.
