Get your plan on! Planners for 2017

Planners for 2017

Planning – Organization – Accountability – Written Intention

Hey lovelies, When it comes to tools for success, you can’t beat a planner. Yes, I still like to write with a pen & paper (dark ages right?) and I love pretty, well-made things. Every year I’m on the lookout for cool, functional, right-for-me planners. Now of course, you can get a regular notebook or calendar but if you want some extra motivation.. I’ve put together a list of the ones I like:

 

  • Law of Attraction Success Planner – This is my 2017 choice. It is planning through intention, has room for lots of list making, purpose building, goals & reflection. Plus it has all of the spiritual woo-woo stuff I love 😉 Oh, it lays flat and has ribbon place-markers (very important technical stuff for me). $20-40
    LOA Planner
  • Top·Down Planner – This was my choice last year. Absolutely loved it. 1-5 year goal section, mind maps, meeting notes, gratitude logs and it helps you plan your day according to your goals instead of what needs to be done. Some folks like larger planners, this one is thick but small enough to carry around. Woman-owned. It is pricey at $50

  • Proclaim, Prepare and Prosper Shades of Color – I was gifted this planner a few years ago by a good sistafriend and absolutely loved it because of the gorgeous art throughout. It is simple in terms of planning but inspires with lovely portraits of women, quotes, coloring pages, nutrition facts, etc. Black owned. $18 Shades of COlor Gbaby
  • Desire Map Planner – By Danielle LaPorte, whom I adore. This is super popular, a planner based on your desires and the way you want to FEEL. She sprinkles her “truthbombs” throughout to keep you motivated. I highly recommend looking to see if its your thing. It is a daily planner where the rest of these are mostly weekly. Woman-owned $44 
  • Passion Planner – Great planner for students & more. Room to write and create a roadmap to what you want. A young woman entrepreneur with a great story. For every one they sell, they give one away! $25-30
  • My Shining Year – A bestseller, thousands sold. Heart-centered creative, and very playful. Colorful and cartoon art. Not my style but many swear by it. It is not a daily calendar, meant to dream/vision for the year.Woman-owned $10(digital) -25 
  • Commit 30 – Really cool accountability planner. Simple and daily pages. Lots of room to write & gorgeous simple covers. $30 
  • Volt Planner – This one has space to draw and journal and is goal driven. Lays flat and has ribbon place-markers It isn’t pretty enough for me lol. Very sophisticated though. Also Woman-owned. $30-40 
  • Rituals For Living Dreambook + Planner – I almost got this one. Love the combination of rituals and planning. Dreaming, goals, reflection & weekly task-lists. It is also very stylized and crunchy granola 😉 Husband & wife team $44

Inner fireworks & a free gift! 3,2,1…

Success without stopping

BOOM! pppop pop pop pop pppop POP! Sigh.

In my wonderful city the fireworks begin weeks before Independence Day. Call it a heightened sense of patriotism, fascination with explosions or a love of pretty lights… all I know is at random times of the day or night, it’s irritating. Now I love fireworks. But what I’ve come to realize is the Forth of July marks the second half of the year and I am often “snap, crackle, popped” out.

In these last 6 months I’ve courageously stepped into a few resolutions and had a couple step on me – ouch. I’ve manifested a dream and watched another get fuzzy. The beginning of summer finds me at a place where I’m running on automatic and in danger of backsliding into old habits instead of being fueled by my usual passion and purpose.

Soooo, BOOM, POP! I’m using America’s 240th Fourth of July to strike a match and light some INNER fireworks for myself and YOU! My theme for July is “Success without Stopping” and I’ve created an awesome gift for you!

Fill in the blanks of this new lease on 2016 and post in the comments! I’d love to read it. I’d love it even more if you’d share your Inner Declaration of Independence with the rest of the Elevate your NOW tribe so we can be inspired and hold space for all that you declare. Want something EVEN better? Click here and you’ll receive a lovely PDF that you can print out and hang..  yeah, it’s cuz I love you 😉
