If you have been following this website, you know that I am a productivity addict. Currently, I am an avid user of Asana, Pomodoro Method, and planners both digital and physical copies. We are approaching the third month of the year. However, it's never too late to start planning your goals for the month, quarter or year. For me, I find that each month is a fantastic time to evaluate goals. I am involved with online groups and slack communities that encourage remote professionals to goal set each month. I can tell you that many people are benefiting from this activity.
In this post, I will share with you one of the ways I am becoming more organized and ready for the year. I am using the Slay Your Goals Planner by Nadalie Bardo.
Okay, so I received access to this fabulous planner a month ago. You guys know I am very protective of the information I share with you. You can be sure any products and services I share I have tried them for a period beforehand. The Slay Your Goals Planner is unbelievable and has improved the way I set my goals. It is the most meticulous planner I have ever used, and I have tried many! The planner takes you through intense goal planning sessions. However, the method is not overwhelming like other planners and programs. Each step of the planning process is beneficial and intentional.
Currently, I use Asana and the Happy Planner for all projects and tasks. I utilize these tools for both business and personal life activity. As some of you know, I teach productivity courses so I was worried about how this planner would fit into my current systems. I was mainly concerned about steps overlapping. Well, the Slay Your Goals Planner worked well with my process. I am convinced that it would work with any system. I plan to continue to use my Happy Planner for day-to-day planning. I will use the Slay Your Goals Planner along with Asana to focus on priorities and long-term goal planning. I will also use Asana and the Slay Goals Planner to determine how my days should be structured. The Slay Goal Planner will not interrupt the current system you use. Instead, it can improve your process!
The planner divides into the following sections:
This planner begins with helping you with the process of determining your intentions. Afterwards, you will go into your goal planning. This planner is like having a coach in your ear guiding you. There is no reason why you wouldn't be able to goal plan efficiently unless you don't try. If you commit to this planner, you will pull out all the information you need to create a great game plan for the year.
You can use the planner in various ways. For example, you can use it digitally. You can utilize it with the iPad Pro after adding it to your OneNote account with the apple pencil. If you don't have the iPad Pro, don't worry you can type directly into the planner using Adobe. Lastly, you can print out the planner for use. I use the Happy Planner hole puncher and rings to bind it together. Here is a picture of it.
I love this planner! It has been an excellent tool for me this year. Trust me you will feel like a total boss after using it. If you are interested, you can use my affiliate link.

See what the Slay Your Goals Planner can do for you this year.
