There’s something about sitting down with a pen and paper (rather than your phone) and sketching out your goals that makes you more accountable. In fact, research shows that writing down your to-do list actually makes you more likely to get things done. I’ve always used a planner to keep me on track, but found that most of the options out there didn’t hit the sweet spot for me. I wanted a planner that was more than just a place to write out that week’s appointments — something that could help me form good habits, manage my time and set goals. That’s why I created Begin: It’s part planner, part journal, and part real world cheat sheet.
It’s organized with handy tabs to help you find whatever you’re after.
There’s also loads of space in the margins to scrawl your dreams, notes, or just doodle.
The weeks are divided into days that run from 5 a.m. to midnight because — let’s be honest — your day doesn’t end at 5 p.m.
I chose a heavy paperweight to prevent bleedthrough, so you can markup your Begin planner up with highlighters, pens or pencils. (Maybe skip the Sharpies, though.)
There are also two-page calendars to help you keep track of what’s on your plate this month.
You’ll also find my favorite inspo quotes throughout the planner. They’re there to remind you that you’re a badass who’s got this.
Begin is also a real word cheat sheet. The planner’s got a mini adulting guide tucked in the back that’s packed with advice on:
Budgeting, Saving, Insurance, Renting an apartment, Business dress codes, Weddings, Self care…and more!
