It is the first day of December! If you have set goals for this year, you only have 31 days left to accomplish those goals. I hope that you’ve already checked off most of the items in your “to do” list this year and you’re not like me who’s left wondering what happened to the 335 days that already passed (to think that we all have an extra day this year because it’s leap year).
For those with Mañana habit like me, there is still hope as we finally have a tool that we can use to help us accomplish our goals: a planner. Lucky me because I got a chance to review a planner that I received for review purposes from Papercode; it is called “The Simple Elephant Planner for Achievers.”
The Simple Elephant Planner for Achievers – Product Description
- sections: My Focus (I am grateful for…, affirmations…, and top 5 goals for this year…), My Mindmap, My Vision Board, 12 monthly planners, 52 weekly planners, and 59 blank lined pages
- undated planners
- quality paper
- numbered pages
- comes with a penholder, expandable folder, elastic closure, and stickers
- great packaging
In My Honest Opinion
The planner comes in a black box with silver letterings. I would say that the packaging is elegant and classy. The materials used for the hardbound cover and the papers inside looked like quality materials. The binding seems secure, as well. I am throwing in some plus points for the elastic closure and penholder, the expandable folder at the back, and the 36 stickers that you can use for labeling.
Initially, I was disappointed to see that this was an undated planner. As I fill out the dates, however, I recognized that being undated is one of the advantages of this planner from Papercode. First, you can buy this planner without worrying about the year when you need to use it (you can use it whenever you want to, just fill out the dates). Another important thing I learned is that the planner becomes more personalized as I started writing on it while filling out the dates. I do not know why but somehow, that process of customizing my planner me makes me feel more connected and I have high hopes that I will be using this planner throughout the year.
Overall, I think that this is a good quality product. I like it a lot and it definitely earns a 5 star rating from me.
