OK so I’m a sucker for stationery. I love the smell of a new book, when you flick the pages in front of your face. I’ll go weak at the knees over beautiful pens. And don’t get me started on magnets, postcards and post-it notes.
What I do know keeps me and my big plans on track is a system all contained in one place.
It’s no secret that I love Evernote for work and family projects, but sometimes you just can’t beat a real “hold it in your hands” book – the perfect planner and I truly believe by committing your intentions, goals and ideas on paper can set you for achieving them. Why? The physical and mental act of writing it down, creates both the logic and the emotion to drive you on to bigger, braver, bolder things in life.
Here’s some of my 2015 favourites – is your perfect planner in here?
Using Whitney English’ Day Planner, you’ll never drop a task, forget an appointment or miss out on a key call – buy yours here. Not sure, sign up and get a pdf of a single day straight to your inbox.
Passion Planner was build for a place of need and helps you set yourself up for a year that’s on track with your passion. Yep, clues in the name. Buy yours here: A4 and A5 sizes available to fit your handwritten (or your bag). Trial both sizes to get your perfect fit 🙂
Another of my favourites taps into the day to day plus helps you focus on goals whilst providing littles pieces of insight, motivation and inspiration. Buy your Dailygreatness Journal here. They also have gorgeous training and yoga journals too, if a new health, fitness or wellbeing trend is in stored for you in 2015.
I just love the cover on this one by MI Goals – gives me that little extra ooomph reading it before I even open up and get into its helpful structured pages. Inside you’ll find quotes, great layouts and clean design. Two places to buy – Worldwide here or if you’re in Australia, go direct.
Lead a double life and seeking a better work/life balance? This is the one for you. Left page for one, Right page for the other – no more double booking, simple at a glance harmony. Busy Life Diary – buy it with the organising stickers an tabs and save cashola 🙂
Discovered the Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte? Yes, then you’ll love this – The accompanying daily diary and journal. A Mini blaster of DM magic each day! Order yours express here. Oh not discovered the Desire Map? Order both together and save on P&P.
Fancy having a go at designing your own planner? You can with Personal Planner – you get to choose the look, content, layout, colours, size and so on. Want a different colour? Check. Want to personalise it? Check. Want to use your own image? Check. Seriously, you can have it any way you like!
Another beautiful layout and bright, bright colours can be found with IHeart Organizing’s day and week planner – the joy is you can get a personalised cover and print it any size you like to fit your filofax, mini ringbinder or lever arch (ok the last one might be a bit over the top!)
Want more freedom in how you create your layout, yet still have structure? I like bullet journalling – it’s low hassle, flexible and you can use ANY book you like. Learn how here with its creator.
Oh and yes, don’t forget Evernote – your online, go with you on your multiple devices, wonder tool 🙂
