Mal paper Daily goal setter planner - Review

I'm a huge fan of stationary, I am always writing lists and dates and just generally writing myself notes, I have always found it difficult to use online planners, I just don't think they're quite the same as an old fashioned pen to paper planners. I was offered the chance to review the Mal Paper daily goal setter planner and to be honest, it couldn't have come at a better time with my breast cancer diagnosis and appointments coming out of my ears, not to mention that the kids go back to school shortly I needed somewhere a bit more productive to write down everything.

The daily goal setter aims to ‘make your goals clearer and help you be more productive, productivity and keeping my mind focussed is definitely something I struggle with, anything that helps with this is a bonus.

At the beginning of the journal, there is a series of cheat sheets which tell you how to set goals and keep them SMART, it sets out a morning, evening, weekly and monthly routines for best use of the journal which is really easy to follow I hate things that are difficult and you have to read it ten times before you get the concept so this for me was a dream I only had to read it once then I could get to work using the journal.

There is a goal section where you can write long-term, medium-term and short-term goals. I haven't set myself many goals yet as I wanted to think through what is really achievable, im the sort of person that struggles to deal with failings so I wanted to make sure I write down the goals that I will be able to achieve.

There are weekly and daily review spreads. The weekly sections have space to write the tasks you need to complete this week, and you can review and rate your week out of ten.

The daily sections have space to write 3 things to be grateful for today, your daily affirmation, tasks you need to complete this day, great things that happened and again, rate your day out of ten I like that none of the pages are labelled with months or days, if you haven't perhaps had the chance to write one day you can just start the next day it doesn't really matter. 

My favourite part of the daily goal setter planner is that it has a fab month review spread, which is a blank calendar view of the month. I found this really useful as you can write in the dates yourself and write-in events appointments meetings ETC. and there is a space to write your most important tasks of the month, you can also review and rate your month out of ten.

At the back of the book, there is a notes section great if you're like me making lists, meal planning or keeping on top of your cleaning I can then transfer them over into the appropriate section daily weekly or monthly tasks where ever they fit the best.

The daily goal setter planner is 256 pages and is designed to last for six months it has two ribbons in it so you can bookmark your pages to find them easily when you need to it also has a document holder at the back to keep things that might be important or are of importance, throughout the book there are also inspirational quotes which I thought was a really lovely touch to an already really useful book.

Overall I love the daily goal setter planner from mal paper priced at £20.95 and is available in three colours black, grey and pink I choose the pink because it works well with my journey right now, however, the daily goal setter planner is priced higher than I would usually spend on something like this but it really is working for me and if it helps me with my productivity which it is right now, I would definitely consider buying another one in the future.

we were sent the beautiful Daily goal-setter planner from mal paper for the purpose of this review all opinions remain honest and my own.
