Setting Goals - Planners and Calendars

Its a New Year!   What are your Goals?  

Do you use a Day Planner?  Or..a Calendar on your Phone for your Appointments and Reminders?   I use both of these.  They help to remind me of my daily tasks, Birthdays, and Appointments.  

 Here is a photo of my Day Planner that I bought a couple of years ago. 

 There are several features that I like about this Planner :  Monthly and Weekly pages, Address list, Birthday pages, Clear ziploc type page to keep notes in, and a handy pen loop on the side of the Planner.

What are your Goals for 2016?

My Goals include to exercise more, eat healthier, finish some books that I have started, and to post often on my blog.  =)  I'm looking forward to seeing what this New Year brings!

I have added some Planners to my Amazon store

  1. I love the color of this planner. Is it the same as the black one on the amazon site of your favorite books?

    1. Gail, My planner is very similar to the black one on my Amazon Store, but the black one is a planner from the PlanAhead Company, and my planner is a Day Runner planner.

  2. These all sound like great goals for the new year Melissa. I hope all is well with you and just dropping in to say hi.

    1. Hi Julie! Thanks for dropping by! Hope you are doing well!

  3. Good choices. I have one goal for this year and that's to feel better. :)

  4. I'm trying to get organized. That's a lot for me lol.

  5. I love that you posted a picture of your Day Planner. These were always my favorite planner tools, before I went all digital. There's a trend around crazy expensive planners these days, but they won't get you to your goals any faster than a pretty one that is affordable. :)


I love comments, thanks so much for stopping by!
