Goal Planners & Journals for Creating Success


"Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities." ~Gloria Steinem

Do you make lists, use a digital planner, mindmaps, a whiteboard, spreadsheets, are you a doodler or do you GEEK OUT over planners & journals and have a creative flair for planning - or do you WISH you did?



What's your goal planning style?!


Goal Planning Journals


MY goal planning strategy hasn't been working for me...

So it's time for a change!

I've had a successful, profitable business for over 23 years, so obviously what I'm doing IS working - to an extent, at least. πŸ˜‰

What I'm finding though, is no matter how productive or how profitable my day is, I'm not getting to the BIG goals. Or I haven't been making room in my schedule or routine for the things I really want to accomplish in my life & business.

Do you get caught up in the "dailies" just checking off tasks?

More often than not, that's me. 🙋‍♀️

I've been using Evernote for quite a few years now, mainly because it syncs EVERYTHING (all my projects, my grocery list, you name it) across ALL my mobile devices & laptop computers.

It has a lot of great features including checklists, goal templates and nested notebooks to keep all of your projects neatly organized and easily accessible.

But lately I've been craving a more hands-on goal setting and goal planning experience, with more visual inspiration.

I'm keeping Evernote (because it works!) but I'm adding in hands-on paper journals & goal planners with lots of color & creativity. ‍🎨 - which is proving to bring back the FUN to goal setting & project planning!


Here's what is currently spread out across my planning desk:

First, my two FAVORITE goal-setting planners...

I always pick UNDATED planners & journals, by the way. What about you - do you prefer dated day-planner style, or something you can pick back up anytime without losing dating pages?

Dated or Undated, comes in a variety of colors & cover styles: Deluxe Law of Attraction Life Planner - A 12 Month Journey to Increase Productivity, Passion, Purpose & Happiness - Happy Weekly Goal Planner, Organizer & Gratitude Journal + Planner Stickers (LOVE this one!)


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ TOP Favorite: "Life Coach In A Book" undated 90-day Motivation & Success Planner for SERIOUS fast-track goal planning! ✅


Over 200 unique stickers, handrawn & FUN for inspiration and positivity, to liven up my journaling & planning 🤸 with lots of COLOR and pick-me-ups!


ERASABLE gel pens in lots of colors - because I was nervous about messing up my journal w/ink 😅 and erasable pens gave me the FREEDOM to PLAY in my goal planners more!


Fun stencils, to liven things up in my planners or journal pages - and also to use on other creative projects (flower pots, picture frames, etc). Love these!


Because I wanted to get 🎨 COLORFUL about it!!


I recently ordered this blog planner & book set but haven't had a chance to dig in yet: CREATE Blog and Editorial Planner: Create Exceptional Content, Get More Done and Smash Through Your Blogging Goals 💥

+ Intensive Biz Playbook & Planner: Scale Your Online Business, Create Explosive Growth and Build a Brand You Crave


ALL the stickers! 🤩

Planner Stickers - Wake Up Kick Ass (Set of 150 Stickers)


Classic Sticker Book Edition 4 (492 Stickers). Decorative and Cute Stickers for Customizing Planners, Notebooks, and More


Essentials Weekly Planner Stickers (Set of 575 Stickers)


Creative Planner Stickers (1k+ pcs Value Pack) - New Functional & Decorative Designer Stickers for Bullet Journals, Planners & Calendars for Happy Planning


That's a quick tour of all the FUN & creative goal-setting and project planning tools in front of me right now, and I absolutely cannot wait to dig in and get colorful & visual with it all!

My goal: to create something between a Vision Board and a Planner - like a "vision book" πŸ™‚ that helps me visualize my projects, my plans and my GOALS in a way that lights that FIRE of motivtaion & excitement in me... all over again! 🔥


What's working for you, and what isn't?

I'd love to hear about or SEE what you're using!

  1. My favorite is the $3 monthly planner at Dollar General. I also love a freebie that the pharmacy here gives out. I bought the My Story Matters planner by Susan May Warren, and I do love it, but it's more complicated than I like, so not sure how much I'll use it.
    I've gotten into creating them in PowerPoint and am working on building a new PLR and printables business.
    I need to get back into Clicknewz, too and back into your brainstorming hour on Thursdays. πŸ™‚

    • Hey Patti! It's so great to hear from you. πŸ™‚ Very cool that you're creating your own digital versions, and love the idea of your printables business. I look forward to hearing more, so definitely pop into the private forum or hop on Brainstorming Hour when you can and let's catch up & throw some ideas around. πŸ˜‰ See you there!

  2. I use the Passion Planner, and have for the last 3 years. I started with Franklin but it's too bulky, and I also gave Ink & Volt a shot. There's just something about Passion that suits me well... now if I'll just use it more often... πŸ™‚
