Plannerisms planners: detailed photos of all the features!

Sorry but the Plannerisms planners are all sold out for 2015. I have ended my partnership with the publisher and am considering possibilities for a new one. Watch this blog for news!

Here's a quick summary of the Plannerisms Going Places Planner features:
  • Weekly layout with all seven days as vertical columns plus space for lists and notes. 
  • A column before Monday to list your daily goals. Then just check your goals off in each day's column, no rewriting!
  • Month on two pages planning calendars.
  • Two-page spread between each month's calendar for monthly goals, lists, financial tracking, household tasks etc.
  • Pages for year and quarterly goals, and pages to write your annual review.
  • Annual overview calendars for the current and next year.
  • Soft-touch cover and super-smooth paper are so pleasant to use!
  • Notes booklet, back pocket, two ribbon bookmarks and elastic closure.
  • 5 colors available: black, pink, purple, blue and turquoise.

Read on for lots of photos and details of the features!

I just want to say thank you so much to everyone who has asked about these planners! And huge thanks to everyone who bought a Plannerisms planner in previous years! Click here to see the wonderful things customers have said about the Plannerisms planners!

After years and years trying dozens (hundreds?) of planners, I designed the Plannerisms Going Places Planner as My Ideal Planner. 2013 was the first year they were published and I've had wonderful feedback from customers. I'm so happy they are back again for another year! I know I couldn't function without my Plannerisms planner!

The Plannerisms planner has weekly pages, monthly pages, loads of goals pages throughout the book, and monthly themes with weekly tips on goal setting, time management, organization and life management.

The planners measure 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches and are only 1/2 inch thick, so they are very portable.

The pages are designed for flexibility of use, and there is no prescribed way to use them. Each person uses the planners a little differently. They are easy to adapt to your own needs, even when your needs change during the year.

I'm so excited to show you the planners!

The cover colors this year are black, pink, purple, blue and turquoise.


The Plannerisms planners have a great unique weekly layout with all seven days as vertical columns plus a column before Monday to write all your daily goals so you don't have to re-write them each day. Just check them off in each day's column for a quick-glance indication of whether you are reaching your goals!
Below the daily columns there is space for your weekly lists and notes. Click here for more tips on different ways to use the Plannerisms weekly pages. You can use them differently every week if you want!  Click the links in the sidebar to see how customers are using their Plannerisms planners.

There are big month-on-two-pages grid calendars to give you the overview of each month.

There is a two-page spread between each month for goals, monthly task lists, monthly reviews, budget and finance tracking, and anything else you want to make note of. Click here to see how I use these pages in my Plannerisms planner.

There are Annual Goals pages:

Quarterly Goals pages:
 

And pages for your end-of-year Annual Review:

There are loads more features in the Plannerisms planners. Let me take you for a walk through the book.

The soft-touch cover is firm yet flexible.

The moon and stars logo is the only branding on the front cover, and is subtly embossed in the lower corner.

Here is the meaning of the moon and stars logo: The phases of the moon represent passing through time. The waxing moon represents optimism and growth. The stars are reminiscent of celestial navigation and represent finding your way in the world. The summary meaning is optimism and growth as you move through time and throughout the world! The Going Places Planner is designed to get you where you want to go, in life and in the world.

Inside the front cover is my favorite Mark Twain quote, which reminds me to get out of my comfort zone and go for it! It says, "Twenty years from now you'll be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the things you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

There is a page for personal information:

Reference calendars for the current year and the following year:

There is a year overview planner to plan big events like holidays, travel and deadlines.

There are international holidays:

International direct dialing codes:

Weights and measures, and conversions:

There are a couple of pages of tips to get you started using your planner:

There are two ribbon bookmarks to mark your current month and current week.

There is a year overview planner for the following year, so you can start planning next year's dates.

There are several Notes pages in the back of the book.

Also in the back pocket there is a removable Notes booklet for more notes.
There is an elastic closure to keep your book securely shut in your bag.


Huge thanks to everyone for your interest in the Plannerisms planners!

  1. That grey-blue is an absolutely beautiful shade, Laurie; I'm SO pleased to see it in the 2014 line-up!

    I also love how you've labelled the weights and measures as 'metric' and 'standard', despite living in Scotland. Luckily for me, I can use both!

  5. Woohoo!!! Just waiting to hear from my man to see if he would like one for next year too, and his colour choice :-)

  6. This looks promising... I am looking for something more 'complete' to take into meetings and not as 'formal' as my filofax. The additional notes pages are great...just not sure where they are and if they would endure for the entire year...but I see the satelite Notes booklet as an add on. Sorry if I mised it, is there a link where we can get more information, pricing and shipping here in the U.S.? a time zone conversion page/chart opposite the international dialing codes would be handy..if it is not already there??

    1. Last year there was a time zone map, but the overwhelming majority of customers said they would rather have more notes space so it was removed for this year.

      You can email me at Laurie at Plannerisms dot com for shipping info to your location. And soon the planners will be on the Collins UK website for worldwide shipping, although I don't have a date yet of when their stock will be ready to ship.

  7. Love that you put the monthly goal pages before the month overview, Laurie! So, have you considered publishing this planner on prepunched A5 Filofax sheets? Gosh, that would be sooooo neat ....

  8. Thanks Jotje! I discussed with my publisher making looseleaf inserts, but they decided to stay with just the bound book for 2014. Hopefully we can branch out into other types for 2015.

  9. Dear Laurie,

    I posted a comment either late last year or early this year about planning to get the 2013 planner, but being unsure about certain features (I think). You replied, but I never got back to let you know I got it! And have loved it! And now looking forward to getting the 2014 in the colour I want - purple! (that's if they're not all gone by now).

    1. Hi Knox, thanks so much for your comment, I'm so glad you are loving your Plannerisms planner! Yes the purple ones are still available on the Collins UK website, the link is near the top of the sidebar. I hope you love it again in 2014! :)

  10. Laurie, hi.

    A personal punched size will be a winner, I guess.

  13. One suggestion for next year is to get rid of the references pages (weights, conversion, dialing codes, international holidays). I think it would be nice if the major holidays were just embedded in the calendar. I don't really use those pages at all. With my phone I can convert something easily and I don't know what I would ever use the dialing codes for! I do like the planner though! Have you considered a horizontal layout? Or not having lines for the vertical layout?

  19. Oh wow. These could just make me replace my current planner that I love (Moleskine). I really like your including goals and annual reviews. The logo with moon and stars is cute! I wish the week started on a Sunday, though.

  20. This is also my perfect planner! I've been on a very long search and sadly I've bought my 2015 one already (and I already regret it as the paper is not that nice). Will keep this in mind for the year after. Do you ship to Canada?

  22. Hello Laurie, could you help clarify whether the actual cover colours are as deep and rich as the photos on the website show? Or are they lighter? Thank you very much!

    1. Hi Gracie, I only have Blue, Turquoise and Purple and those are accurate. I can't tell you about Pink or Black but I'm assuming they are accurate too. Remember, screens can show images differently so there may be some variations in how the images appear on your screen.

    2. Thank you for the thorough note, Laurie. Really love the design and I can't wait to receive mine! :-)
