I used this planner last year. I had to get another one! It works great for scheduling!
This planner combines everything I have ever been looking for in one! The ability to have a daily to do list as well as things I need to do sometime this week is perfect for productivity. I love the columnar arrangement and goal setting. The habit tracker keeps me honest. But my favorite part is the reward/looking forward to line. I need some positivity everyday!
This is my second year ordering the GoodBusy planner. It’s so full of useful tools to think out and pursue my goals, and I love that it reminds me to celebrate the wins and memorable experiences for the week or month we are in.
I am a planner queen and need something that accommodates my need to plan my day, week and month. Likewise, sort of forces me to set goals and reflect. This has been one of my favorite planners. Love that you can purchase hard cover and printable pdf.
As a self-proclaimed Planner guru, I can tell you this planner packs so much of the best tools to stay organized. I love the uniqueness of the layout and how functional it is. Of course, section can be modified to fit your needs, but it's pretty perfect the way it is.
I have purchased many, many, planners looking for "the one" and I have come back to my Good Busy planner each time. I prefer undated planners and this one allows me to start my week on Mondays and skip a week if I am on vacation without wasting the pages. I already ordered another one.
I think we can all agree 2020 has been... challenging. Having a planner at all has been kind of redundant since there haven’t been many places to go or things to do! However - the Good Busy Planner has been useful to me despite the pandemic slowdown and I just ordered my next one (I’m a devoted paper planner but haven’t used the same one twice, till now). Here’s the thing: Good Busy Planner isn’t just about keeping track of appointments, sports games, your kids’ school/sporting events and your work meetings. It’s about planning what fills your cup and celebrating small successes. It’s about noting what you’re looking forward to, and recapping what worked and what didn’t. It’s about brainstorming solutions to your challenges and recognizing even TINY progress in the right direction. Plus, it’s undated. You can start it whenever you like... skip weeks/months if you find yourself in a season of just survival instead of actively working toward a goal... and it’s sleek and sturdy to boot. Like I said - I’m not a same-planner-twice kind of girl but GBP changed the game for me.
After trying many different methods, I've found a paper planner to be the most versatile and convenient way to track many aspects of a busy life: work, home, writing and social media scheduling, exercise, meal planning, list-making, etc. The Good Busy Planner has room for all of that and more. I love having both the weekly and monthly pages for a different perspective on what's coming up. The size is perfect and the flexible cover has a luxurious feel to it. Already purchased next year's planner so I can start setting it up!
It is a great calendar. It holds together well and the organization of it is beneficial and useful. Being undated allows me to use the pages how I need and not just by a date. I can take notes in it and still put a date where I need it.
This planner has helped me immensely with my time-related anxiety and somewhat non-linear organizational style (more on that below). I have both the paper version and the PDF version I use with the GoodNotes app. It hits the perfect sweet spot where there is a space for anything your brain could devise and spaces you can claim for your own purpose. This planner is unlike any out there on the market - and I have tried ALL the different systems over the years. Now my anxiety is: “what if the good busy planner disappears??” Humanity will lose the only planner like this that exists. So please, for the future of humanity and to keep planner diversity out there, buy this planner. I have the undated paper planner. The feel and size are perfect - I really enjoy carrying this around. Some complain there isn’t enough space, but if you make it any larger, it becomes cumbersome. When I need more space, I use post-it notes or use my Rocket Book for extra brainstorming space; there are also ample blank pages in the planner. I use a 4-color Frixion erasable pen for both the planner and the Rocket Book. The undated version allows me to group my week into 2 group: a Fri-Sun on the left side and Mon-Thurs on the right. I use the Fri-Sun to plan a successful & ultra productive 4 day week. I love how I can modify the Good Busy planner to suit my needs and my always changing priorities/projects/time flow.
I have literally tried 4-5 planners to date this year, and feel like Goldilocks. One has too much "feeling" and not enough details. One had too many details and not enough feelings. One was just too darn big to comfortably carry around. One had to much planning and only covered 90 days. Unfortunately you just don't know until you get them into your hands. Good Buy was a happy medium of all of them... I discovered I like a week at a glance (rather than a just a day at a time). I like the planning aspect of it. I wish the months were just preceeding the weeks, but I understand that would be hard to do with a blank date journal, I personally started mid month. My only "problem" with it is that there is not enough room to write in sentences. because it is fitting 7 days into 2 pages. I would like a little more room to journal/plan/dream/access each day... But other than that, it feels, looks high quality and it's working better than the other (expensive) ones I've tried!
I love it, takes care of all my needs and more
