lt’s not very often I find a planner with a 4 day weekly planner. Actually, I think the Infinite Agenda is the first I’ve ever come across (apart from a custom Agendio Planner).
- Size: 8″ wide x 10.25″ high
- Wire binding
- Dates at a glance page
- 2 page Monthly calendar (starts on Monday)
- 2 page weekly spread (starts on Monday)
- Neutral inside pages with a little bit of color
- 2 sheets of decorative planner stickers
- Academic or calendar year
- 12 month duration
- Pocket folder
Price: $58 USD plus shipping (I got this planner on clearance during Black Friday for $10 USD plus shipping and they seem to go on sale quite often throughout the year).
There are a few different formats for this planner:
- Format I purchased which you’ll see in this post
- 12 month dated (sewn bound) – I couldn’t find size on the website but it looks to be about 5″ wide x 8.25″ high = $39 USD + shipping
- Undated daily – lasts 180 days (sewn bound) – 5″ wide x 8.25″ high = $29 USD + shipping
Let’s take a closer look!
To enlarge the screen of the video, click the square icon in the bottom right hand corner of the video (it will say ‘full screen’ when you hover your mouse over the icon).
The planner comes in a matching box. Nice idea for gifting, but it does at to the cost of shipping.
The cover is thick, sturdy chipboard. I chose the red but there are more cover colors to choose from like black, blue and pastel pink.
Just over 1″ thick (very thick!)
One of the reasons I’m not a fan of wire binding is that the wire is clunky, it adds extra weight and in some instances like this where there’s so many pages, the wire pops out and the pages come loose.
At the front of the planner are 2 sheets of decorative planner stickers.
Then the goals / vision planning pages start:
There are sections for:
- Short term goals
- Long term goals
- Wildest Dreams
- Vision Board
Most of these pages aren’t really my style of planning so I probably wouldn’t use them however it’s something different that most planners don’t include.
The gratitude section includes these prompters:
- Today I am grateful for…
- The gifts in my life include…
- I feel so thankful for…
- When I think of my life, it is so incredible that…
It’s not very often that I say this (I think this is the first time ever in one of these planner reviews), I actually think they’ve provided too much space to write.
Something else that’s different is the use of graph paper instead of lined or dot grid.
There are questions / prompters at the top of the page and then it’s just one giant page to write on. I think some more structured questions in this front section would be good. I didn’t take photos of all the pages in this front section but I do show them on the video (scroll up to the top of this post to watch it).
The graph spacing is 5mm.
I think the reason I’m not really a fan of these front pages is that they’re a bit wishy washy. For example, in the short term goals the prompters are
- I am excited to receive…
- I am looking forward to the success of…
- It’s so wonderful that…
I read those and it doesn’t really prompt me to write anything. I think my brain works very differently to the creator of this planners’!
The long term goals prompter questions are:
- Next year I see myself…
- In 5 years, my life will include…
- This is fun! I see myself…
The wildest dream section includes these prompters:
- When possibilities are endless, I dream of…
- When I allow my imagination to run wild, I see myself..
- My wildest wishes include…
I think like people’s answers to these prompters will get quite repetitive. Some example pages from the creators of how they used these sections would be helpful.
There are 4 of these vision board pages – I really love the border pattern!
Dates at a glance
Dates for the year of the planner and the following year. It starts on Monday which is consistent with both the monthly calendar and weekly spread.
After all of these pages, the dated planning section starts. Each month has this same infinity divider. I’m normally not a fan of red and this teal color but I don’t mind it in this planner.
Behind each monthly tab is:
- 2 page monthly calendar
- 1 page monthly planning questions
- 1 page notes
- Weekly spreads for the month
- 1 monthly review page (notes page)
The monthly planning questions tie back into the front section of the planner:
- This month I am excited to accomplish these short term goals
- This month I will grow closer to these long-term goals…
- In my wildest dreams I am looking forward to receiving…
Starts Monday which is consistent with the weekly spread.
The boxes for each day are approximately 3.5cm wide x 3.8cm high (just under 1.5″ wide x 1.5″ high) with USA holidays pre-printed.
Unfortunately split boxes make an appearance on some of the calendars. Doesn’t make sense when there’s empty boxes on the top row that could be used…
The main reason I got this planner is because there are 4 pages to plan each week.
The spread starts on Monday which is consistent with the monthly calendar.
The weekday boxes are 6″ wide x 4″ high. The lined writing space is 5mm high.
I’m not a fan of the same text repeated for every single day (today I am looking forward to.. & today I am super grateful for..). I would just ignore this text or use white out tape to cover it up.
I wish that quote at the end of the week wasn’t so big – it takes up half the page! It would make more sense to get rid of the quote so Saturday and Sunday have a full size box like a weekday. Or if the quote stays, make the font size a lot smaller.
Apart from that, the boxes for each day are functional and I like the mix of lined and unlined writing space.
At the back is a year in review section which is just open-ended graph paper. 5 pages x double-sided.
The tabs are laminated paper which would likely get damaged except the cover extends beyond the pages to protect them. The divider pages for each month are just paper.
There’s a pocket folder at the back but the design of it (being so close to the binding with only a small part for your finger to grab and lift) makes it difficult to open.
I didn’t do a pen testing as I didn’t end up keeping this planner however the pages don’t show the heavy color printing on the backside of the monthly pages so there shouldn’t be much ghosting for most pens.
Pros of the Planner
- Different weekly spread with 4 pages per week
- Multiple cover colors to choose from
- Plenty of goal pages at the front
- Very sturdy hardcover
- Bright white paper
- Notes pages at the back
Cons of the Planner
- The goal pages need more structure
- I’m not a fan of writing on graph paper (although this is more of my own personal preference)
- Page size is too big and there are so many pages the wire binding came undone after opening and closing the planner a few times
- Heavy so it’s expensive to ship (I didn’t weigh it but their website says the boxed planner weighs 2.37lbs!)
- The pocket folder at the back needs to be shorter (not directly butting up against the wire bindind)
- The dividers for each month (and the tabs) are paper, not cardstock
Would I use this planner?
As you’ve probably guessed, this planner is a no from me. The page size is far too big and the planner is way too heavy.
I think the planner has a good base but the execution needs some improvement. The impractical page size, too many pages (2 x 6 month planners would be more manageable), the wishy-washy (in my opinion) questions that lack structure – I think this planner needs to be a bit better thought out.
If you want to leave your planner on your desk at home and have big handwriting or don’t mind a large page size planner then this could work. There’s plenty of room to plan if you want to keep work and personal in the one planner.
I think the smaller page size version they have (with the sewn binding) is a much better design. There’s not as much room to write not only due to the smaller page size, but it has a 2 page instead of 4 page weekly spread, but it’s a much more practical size and weight.
