Another perfectly productive year is about to close. And that means many new things will come to fruition while we prepare ourselves for more things in the coming new year. And prepare we must!
If the new year will become as good of a year as 2018 was, then there are far more exciting things ahead to look forward to like new projects to plan, new self-improvement goals to be had as well as personal development activities that we can claim our stakes on.

Monitoring your progress is essential to success. It keeps your goals in mind always, preventing you from getting sidetracked by the distractions of daily life.
By measuring and tracking your goals daily, weekly and monthly, you paint a clear picture of your progress, and ensure you stay on the path to success.
Adjust your focus and reprioritize where necessary. Double-down on what’s working to keep yourself motivated and moving consistently towards your long-term goals.
It’s easy to get caught up in the whirl of daily life. Reviewing allows you to reflect on how far you’ve come, and holds you accountable to your plan for success.
This critical principle of self-reflection helps you understand yourself more deeply. To objectively track your personal growth, identify areas of improvement and reinforce successful habits that lead to rock-solid self-discipline and continuous improvement.
Reviewing is also a time to celebrate your achievements and breakthrough moments. An inner pat on the back that is proven to ignite a deep sense of fulfillment.
We give it our complete thumbs up because both amateurs and seasoned enthusiasts could use another strong offering for next year. We think this is it!
There are aspects to a colorful planner that beats all others. For one thing - a user will never get bored with it. Flipping through their pages is like looking at something new and bright. They also offer plenty of functional and fashionable stickers to go with your planner of choice.
They capture hearts because they take you to a time when you were young - where happiness was measured by the simple joys like playing with stickers and crayons. Who doesn't wish to go back to those simple moments, right? There's a nostalgic feeling you get while using this planner.
They're as beautiful as they are diverse. And they are fully customizable too with the option of building the planner in a style that suits you. And therein lies its true beauty. Their promise is this - there's a planner here that suits you even if you have the most discerning of style preferences.
This brand is a crowd pleaser. And we don't say it lightly either. As hard as it is to pronounce, the name itself is synonymous to brand favorites. This will always be on the top list because they have never changed. Their reputation for creating good quality planners is solid and have a strong fan base online.
The brand's name reverberates loudly online because they take on a reputation of a multipurpose planner. First off, the pages are off-white all across and they conform to the basic bullet journal set-ups. That's pretty neat. They're right, it is the details that matter most when it comes to planners.
The week is an entire spread and built to look like you drew in those lines by yourself. All of the lines you see are purposeful. It also has a project tracker which makes it a good fit for professionals who like the rigidity of the lines over clever forms.
Fans of this planner will tell you a story instead of a reason why they love using the pages. And we get why that is so. They would love to tell you the stories of how their lives have been improved because the planner was so incredibly made. We don't dispute them at all and are in fact amenable to their sentiments.
One cool thing stands out for us. Their layout is uniquely structured. You don't get to see a daily page where you can also write your goals in it. That means you have a target every day which should keep you on your toes. This is especially helpful for those who are easily distracted by other other things that could lead them off focus.
The planner's continued success means the system works for a lot of people. And with what we've read and seen so far, there hasn't been a user regretful of planning the Michael Hyatt way.
The last planner in our selection is our best planner for conservatives who wish to make a switch. These are fresh planners that are made “simple” for a reason. The binding rings are gold and matches well with the eclectic cover design. It stands out to us because they don't skimp out on the quality at all.
The pages inside are clean and laid out to never clutter up your agenda. It's a planner in its best basic form. You get to design how you will use it whether you want to embellish it or not. But in all honesty, it doesn't need it at all. It will function and please by itself.
It doesn't try to get your attention. It just grabs it. You'll be pleased with how clean it is on the inside. It's like a surprise that would not overwhelm your senses. Those of you who prefer to use planners that are of the classical style and unabashed about it, this is for you.
That's it, folks! We served you up with what we predict will be the top hits for 2019 in the world of physical planners and perhaps personal organization as well. Go ahead and reserve yours now because these will not be available for long! We wish you an exciting new planning year ahead.
