The time has finally arrived for me to go back to work. After 12 weeks of working from home and then 8 weeks of furlough. Next week, I head back to the office for the first time since March. I am seriously looking forward to getting back into a routine again. I think it’s safe to say over lockdown, my motivation and productivity has nosedived! Usually I am a very organised person. I feel more in control and relaxed when I am organised and know what tasks I have to complete. Things usually start to go wrong if I haven’t planned and got myself organised for my day or week ahead.
So it couldn’t have come at a more perfect time, when the lovely guys at Mal Paper got in touch asked if I would like to review their Daily Goal Setter Planner*. Commence Operation Get Sarah Organised!
The Daily Goal Setter is a beautiful hardback planner in a beautiful black faux leather. The planner looks and feels both beautiful and also sturdy. It would definitely stand up to being carried around in your handbag for on-the-go planning and organisation. What I instantly loved about the Daily Goal Setter, is that it is a gratitude journal and planner all in one. I have been journalling for quite a while now to help manage my emotions and my mental health. The Daily Goal Setter could be used for any aspect of organisation, from blogging, work to family life organisation. I am planning on using mine for my daily list of To Do tasks.
The planner starts with the cheat sheet with lots of hints and tips for using the planner to help achieve your goals. Space to write short, medium and long term goals is also provided. The month in review pages have space to make notes, which could be handy to use for appointments or events. Most of the planner is taken up with the daily tasks pages, which I absolutely love and think are so useful.
Each page is undated and starts with the opportunity to start your day with some gratitude and a daily affirmation. Most of the page is then dedicated to a To Do list of tasks to compete for that day. With an opportunity for some daily reflection at the end of the page, which I always think is important, even if you have had a bad day! The back of the planner contains some black pages for notes along with a calendar for 2020 and 2021.
Overall, I think the Mal Paper Daily Goal Setter Planner is incredible. It is a beautifully designed planner. It provides me with everything I need to get myself on top of my daily tasks and keep me organised at work. The Daily Goal Setter is priced at £20.95. If you want to get your life more organised buy yourself one from Mal Paper. I promise you won’t regret it!
