I am a sucker for a deal. Like, I will go out of my way to save a few bucks no matter what. It is one of my best and worst traits. So of course, I have flown budget airlines. I just can’t resist $30 […]

Created by a therapist, the ThriveSteer planner is designed to be a planner and a life coach all in one. This planner has a strong focus on both helping you plan your day as well as helping you create the vision for the life you want to live.
Before the “planner” starts there are several pages of activities to go through. These activities help to sit back and think about what you really want from your life from six core values.
These values are:
To learn more about these areas visit the ThriveSteer website.
After you understand the core values, the planner has prompts about many areas of your life. Through these prompts you will learn more about what you are really looking for from life as well as create pursuit statements that will help focus your actions over the next year.
The planner then walks you through the steps to make one goal for the year and helps you plan how to get to it. At the end you will have a chance to review what you’d worked on and you should leave the beginning of the planner with a strong sense of what your real goals are as well as how to get there.
The planner portion itself it fairly simple. Monthly pages are tabbed for easy access and weeks are put together in a simple hourly vertical layout. Both have areas where you can mark the core value you want to focus on as well as space for reflection.
At the end of each month there is a two page Monthly Follow Up where you can reflect on the previous month. There is also a quarterly and year end review as well. These include prompts that will help you decide where you were successful and how you might need to change your pursuit statements to better meet your needs.
Overall, this is a high quality planner with unique insight that I have never before seen in this format. The paper is strong and I love that it comes with two bookmarks and a band to keep the whole thing together.

If you remember, last year I tried out the new Agendio planner. This is a fully custom planer that is printed just for you. You get to pick the layout, sections, colors, headers, and even add events and tasks. That planner is about to end and I loved it so much I ordered another one for this year.
I use this planner for work and I use it in an A5 binder so that I can include other papers and inserts in the planner. (Look for A5 binders at Filofax or Michaels.) You can also have yours made with a coil or in a book form. These look nice and professional.
I have been using a daily planner layout for a few years now and what I always notice is that I don’t use the hourly column. In my field I don’t have tons of meetings or appointments, and the ones I do have are often the same each week. Because of this I changed the layout of my planer to just have a small “today” section to record my appointments for the day and then a “tonight” section to jot down evening plans. Of course, if you need the hourly section, go for it! That is what I love about this planner, you can make it work for YOU.
Although I love a daily planner for work, you can also create a weekly planner if that is more of your speed. Vertical, horizontal, whatever you want. I saw some where they had the days on the left page and then the right side was for notes and such for the week. Kind of perfect really.
Once you’ve decided on a layout Agendio lets you add in important dates. You can choose from holidays, moon cycles, religious holidays for several religions and more. You can also add your own holidays like birthdays and anniversaries. Agendio will remember them so you can add them in next year.You can also add reoccurring events like due dates or meetings. A super easy way to ensure things get done.
One of my favorite parts of this planner is that you can set it to start whenever you want. So many times people decide they need a planner in like April and like no planners start in April so they have to buy one they only have use or wait until Academic planners start in around July.
