I’m obsessed with goal-setting and stationery, so when I discovered a planner/notebook thingy which has been designed expressly for the purpose of tracking goals, I knocked it out with a club and dragged it to my cave immediately.*
It’s called the Plannerisms Planner and I went for the ‘aqua’ colour-way which is a lovely soft turquoise. The pages are decent quality and there are two ribbon markers so that you can keep your place in both the monthly and weekly planning sections. There are also pages for listing monthly, quarterly and annual goals, a pocket in the back and an elastic closure.
Here it is with a lovely spotty-fabric notebook my daughter gave me for Christmas:
I’m going to use this alongside my Filofax (which I will continue to use for appointments, daily to-do lists, and notes).
If you want an idea of how the weekly view looks, here are last week’s pages (at the beginning of the week, before I’d filled it out):
As you can see, you have a blank column at the start of the week where you can list recurring goals such as ‘writing’ or ‘yoga’ and then you can either put a tick in the appropriate box (or a value if you want to track number of words written or miles walked or whatever).
I’ve split the pages with some washi tape so that I have space above my recurring goals for other tasks and deadlines.
I’m using the monthly planner pages to continue with my sticker reward system for writing fiction.
I know that we’re not even half-way through January, but this is really helping me to stay motivated. Hurrah for stationery!
