Getting My Life Organised With Mål Paper's Daily Goal Setter Planner

When it comes to keeping my life organised I tend to go through phases of being really good and really bad. I would say that at the beginning of the year I was really good at keeping on top of everything but it's slowly gotten worse as the year has gone on. So when new company Mål Paper got in touch asking if I'd like to review their Daily Goal Setter Planner RRP £20.95* I obviously said yes as it was about time I got my life organised again. 

The Daily Goal Setter Planner has an uncomplicated daily, weekly and monthly planning area which I really appreciate. I really like the weekly review layout and daily review layout in particular. The weekly review has four sections - 

Five Most Important Tasks Of The Week
Tasks Of Secondary Importance

Additional Tasks 
Review Your Week

I feel like this really helps you to separate the important and urgent things on your to-do list and stops you stressing over the little things that don't really matter if you don't complete them by the end of the week. I'm also a fan of the review your day/week and month sections of the planner in general too. 



The daily pages are a little different but I'm also enjoying the layout. On these pages you have - 

3 Things To Be Grateful For
Daily Affirmations
Today's Tasks/Notes
Great Things That Happened Today
Rate Your Day

 The planner is a PU Faux Leather Softback and available in three different colours - Black, Grey and Pink. It contains 256 pages and will last for 6 months so I think it's priced well. It also has information and a "cheat sheet" on how to set goals, become more productive and also practice gratitude which I think is a lovely addition to a daily planner and makes it a little more special. It's also undated so you can start using it during any month of the year and you won't waste any pages if you're having a week or two off work. It also contains 2 ribbon dividers and document holder at the back which I've found is handy to pop receipts, letters and things like that inside before filing them.

I'm quite old fashioned and I like to write my lists down on paper rather than on my phone. I find it's more satisfying to tick or scribble things off on a paper to do list and I also find that if I do my to do lists on my phone then I end up being distracted by my phone and any notifications I have (It's so bad, I know!). So when I saw that the planner had a section for daily to-do lists which has lots of space for both my to-do list and my big hand writing, I was very happy.

I feel like it's a must have if you're struggling with motivation and it's a good way to monitor your goals and as I've already mentioned you can also write how you're feeling day to day as it has a "rate your day/week/month" section at the bottom of the daily, weekly and monthly tasks, which I think is a good idea. You can also pick up on patterns of certain times of the month when your day might have gone great but you're feeling a bit off. I guess in a similar way to the Clue app does but on paper. 



Something else I've realised whilst I've been using this planner is that on days which pretty uneventful I'm finding little things to appreciate and to write down on my "3 things to be grateful for" section on my daily section, which I think is really nice and that alone has kind of helped to put me in a better mindset some days.



I'm kind of using the planner how I see fit but I'm also getting the hang of using it in the way Mal Paper are inspiring people to use it too. I do seem to be struggling with the "Daily Affirmations" section and I don't know why. But overall I think it'd make a perfect gift for someone who is either planning big things or struggling with motivation - or both. It's just a good way to declutter my mind and get everything down on paper and motivate me.

  2. I love a planner that has every little section planned out, or little spaces to write different lists or things to remember, and this one looks like it has all of those things! I wouldn't have managed uni without a planner like this x
