Accomplishing my Goals with the Tools 4 Wisdom Planner

So, I took an unplanned hiatus for a week or seems like my to-do list just gets longer and longer and one of those many things was checking out the Tools 4 Wisdom Planner.  Once I had the time to sit down and really look at this planner I realized this is totally what I need in my life right now!

I’ve used planners for the past few years, it’s the only way I can keep track of my ever growing to-do list and important dates; but I’m not sure I’ve ever had a planner like this.  While this planner is still great for keeping track of every day to-do items and important dates, it is so much more than that.
Let’s start with my initial impressions from when I received the planner. The weight of the planner really surprised me. It’s not “Omigod this thing is so heavy how do you expect me to carry it around” heavy, but it definitely more impressive in weight than the planner it is replacing.  The cover is an interesting abstract design, but if that’s not your thing I believe they have 3 or 4 different designs to choose from.
As soon as you open the cover you’ll realize that the focus of this planner is to help you plan, set, and achieve your goals. The first section of the binder is designed to help you figure out your areas of focus for your goals, as well as how to achieve those goals.  There are plenty of pages so you can adjust your goals as needed throughout the year.  I personally have never used a planner in this capacity before so I’m kind of excited to see how this can help me achieve my goals!
 Each Month has its own tab and the tab starts with your monthly goals and how you plan to achieve them.  The rest of the month consists of each day with a line from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. for scheduling out your day.  You can also list out your priorities and idea’s by day/week. There is also a monthly priorities master list.

There is a tab for notes and ideas which is nice as I often jot down notes in my planner’s but then have to flip back through to find where I put those notes!  You’ll also receive a coupon code for free access to over 77 printables from Tools4Wisdom. I downloaded them and there are some great extra tools to help you focus on your goals.

 My description really doesn’t do this planner justice as it’s a really in depth planner.  Check out my short video so you can see everything this planner has to offer:

Overall, I think this is a great tool to really help you make short term and long term goals and to really help you track those goals.  It’s also a great appointment book.  The only thing I wasn’t a huge fan of is the lack of space to keep track of my daily to-do items.  I think I would use this in addition to the planner I currently have, but focus this more towards setting those long term goals and tracking them with the planner.  It would be awesome to see a future planner have a section for each day to list to-do items, as then this would literally be the perfect planner to meet all of my needs.

If you are a goal oriented person this is definitely the planner for you.  This planner is currently $29.95 on Amazon, which can be bought here:  It does come in 4 different styles so there’ something for everyone! The planner can be purchased here: Tools 4 Wisdom Planner
