The Everyday Planner printable planner for 2019-2020 is now available for download! Print, organize, plan and tackle goals like never before. Turn your wishes into goals and those goals into successes with our tried-and-true system.
I’m always searching for new and better ways to organize, but there’s one method that works for me from year-to-year, no matter what. That method is using a paper planner.
The Everyday Planner
It’s that time again! The Everyday Planner has launched for 2019-2020, and I wanted to share some of the features with you today. While the design is similar to the previous, I want to take you on a walkthrough of the planner. I’m so excited to help people balance their daily lives and go after their goals more successfully than ever before.
Watercolor Hydrangea Cover
This year I painted some watercolor hydrangeas and created a cover. I’m pretty sure it’s my favorite cover yet!
Two Sizes in One Purchase
One request that I’ve heard loud and clear is that many people prefer a smaller, half-page option for a planner as well as having the larger full-page desktop version. You get both in one purchase. The Junior size is perfect for slipping into a purse or book bag. The Full Page is a great one to live at your desk!
With this planner, I strived to balance all of the things that we try to organize in a day without losing sight of our bigger goals. For most of us, it’s an overlap of family responsibilities, household tasks, business/blogging, health…
- New! Gratitude Section to record one great thing each day.
- As always, all pages are pre-dated.
- They include a space below the date for a holiday or special occasion (the planner is pre-filled with Major & US Holidays).
- The Important section can be used for your biggest reminder of the day. If I don’t have anything big due, I fill it in with encouragement.
- The Focus section highlights the top three things you need to accomplish in a day.
- The Schedule is your time blocking section, with spaces for early and late appointments or tasks.
- The Meal section coordinates with your meal planning, so you always have a quick reference.
- The Action Steps section is your to-do list. Transfer anything that doesn’t get accomplished one day into the next! These should be a mix of your daily tasks and things that will progress you to your bigger goals.
- The Health section is a great way to track your water intake and exercise. While some days they make me cringe, I know that they are as important as everything else in my life and I need the reminder! I was shocked by how much more I was pushed to stay on track when I began seeing these reminders daily.
- Condensed Weekends feature a spot for special occasions and holidays, to-do list, dinner, and health. Feedback from last year’s time blocking planner informed me that the majority don’t need a schedule on the weekend, and I completely agree!
- At-A-Glance calendars show the current and following month.
The monthly pages retained their classic layout. I have always received great feedback on the calendars, and I love them myself- there’s no reason to mess with a good thing! The one small thing I did change was to make the calendar lines bolder, per your request. Both sizes of the planner feature the same monthly design (the junior planner is shown here).
A big theme in this planner is goal planning. It’s so easy to lose sight of our biggest goals during the day-to-day, so I devised this system of starting big with a five-year vision exercise and narrowing down the goals until you are adding them into your daily action list.
As with all of the previous versions, this planner is a printable PDF. This means that you won’t be mailed a planner, but rather you will be emailed a digital product. There is a support site that includes instructions and videos for printing.
Before we go, I feel like I may need to address the neutral design! It’s so much more refreshing to have a blank slate to allow for creativity to flow. I have received many many requests for neutral design over the years- especially from the guys! I’ve also received quite a lot of feedback over the years regarding the use of ink. This design certainly saves money on ink and makes printing services more reasonable than ever before.
