My mom bought me this cute little life planner for Christmas, and it is lovely! It contains over 30 quotes, monthly reflections, checklists and planning goals for your next year. Here is a quote from the CEO of the company.
“It was September… where did this year go? What did I do this year? What did I do last month? What did I do yesterday? Amidst the craziness of life, I realized that I was getting buried in daily tasks and losing sight of things in my life that are of utmost importance.
So how am I going to stay focused? It all starts with intentionally planning. Planning is not easy. It takes time, patience, and wisdom. Live each day to the fullest and treasure each moment.”
CEO, Mary Square
Time to Reflect
- One thing I discovered about myself…
- Things I let go…
- I know myself now more because…
- Things that felt out of whack or out of balance this year…
- What can be done to change them?
The planner concentrates on your weaknesses and by writing them out you can see how you process situations and turn them around. Journaling my weaknesses made me feel even more excited for the new year, because I know exactly what I need to work on and how to remedy them.
Being Honest With Yourself
For 2017, I’m going to take this planner seriously, and that means being brutally honest about what I accomplish and what I lack in. This pie chart provided in the first couple of pages creates a visual realization of how you spend your time. As you can see, my time is spent doing absolutely nothing progressive -___-
It’s eye opening, and now I will begin to put the phone done and focus on areas that will improve my life!
The Inspirational Quotes Are A-1
The inspirational quotes are probably the best thing about this life planner. They give meaning and hope to the goals you want to accomplish. It’s also amazing how they could fit literally any situation you may be going through!
The Verdict is..?
Since it is the year of being selfish, I say get yourself a life planner and commit to it! Mary Square has a colorful variety of Life Planners to get you started! I can’t wait to do an end-of-the-year review on the progress I’ve made, and it will be a great motivational tool to have for the year ahead!
