For a long time I was a big fan of Franklin Covey planners. I still love them, but I don't quite need something that inolved anymore. But, if you are looking for a great planner with lots of options, you should check it out.
Last year I used the Week Dominator. I loved it, but it was really big, and didn't really fit in my purse. Halfway through the year (the Week Dominator was only a 6 month planner), I switched to the Purposeful Planner. Loved it, but it became to heavy and thick to carry around.
This year, I decided to try out the Spark Notebook. So far, I love it. Here are some of the key features:
The first few pages includes a place to figure out your 2016 theme and create some yearly goals. This year I settled on the theme of Focus. Whatever I am doing I want to devote my full attention to it. I also want to focus on my goals and not only meet them, but exceed them. I set 10 goals this year and they range across the different areas of my life. The planner also includes a page to list your Achievements for the year. I like that idea because it is important to recognize when you do something well, and having it in the planner provides an easy reference point, if your having a "down" day.
After those sections, the monthly and weekly sections begin. First there is a calendar for the month.
I like that it has some space on the side for notes.
I also recently discovered there is a few blank pages at the back for taking notes, or brainstorming.
This new planner really fits me. Plenty of space to keep me on track, but not so much that I am planning a 1,000 to do items and then getting frustrated when they don't get done. I can only write so many for the space I have.
You can get your own here. Now, for what you have been waiting for... the giveaway of my extra Spark Notebook.
Now it's your turn.... Do you use a planner? Which one and why? What do you need/like in a planner?
