How to Reach Your Goals: Mål Paper Planner

I love to set myself “blogging goals”, and I’ve seen lots of great posts by bloggers who publish their goals in order to hold themselves accountable for their blogging progress.

These days with so much going on, it can be so hard to make productive efforts to reach our goals- whether they’re long-term, or just a simple to-do list for the day.

So today, I’m so excited to review a planner which allows people to do just that, helping people meet their lofty goals, and aspire to improve their productivity from day to day.

This is the perfect journal for ambitious graduates looking for job opportunities, bloggers who want to keep track of their progress, or even busy parents who want to put aside some time to work on their own personal goals.

I’ve really enjoyed using this planner in the past few days, and I’m super excited to continue using it to improve my productivity and reach my goals.

What is the Mål Paper Planner?

The black *Mål Paper Planner is a gorgeous goal journal, which can be used to keep track of any goals, ambitions, or aims.

This planner starts with a bit about the diary, describing different theories on how users can reach their goals, such as how to create SMART goals and understanding the importance of long-, medium-, and short-term goals.

I liked that the planner included a bit about how to effectively meet your goals, as this advice makes it a little different from other diaries.

The journal came with lovely business cards with cute sayings and inspirational words.

After the advice and information about the most productive way to use this planner, the journal is then split into several key sections.

The sections are set out simply, with plenty of room to write in your own dates, times, and notes depending on how much information you want to note down.

The main sections of this planner (in order) are:

  1. Space for noting long-term, medium, and short goals
  2. Monthly goal planner
  3. Weekly goal planner
  4. Daily goal planner
  5. Note paper (including lined and dotted paper)
  6. 2020/21 calendar

Despite the inclusion of a 2020/21 calendar, this *planner can be started any month in any year, and I love how the monthly/weekly/daily planners leave the user to fill it in as they choose- without date restrictions. This means if I miss a day, I don’t have to mess up the planner, and it gives me freedom to make notes as I choose.

What do I like about this planner?

I really like this *planner– it’s gorgeous and beautiful, but also simple in design and practical to use. I love that it blends aesthetically-pleasing design with practical space for writing.

I’m typically quite a messy person, and so I’m glad there’s plenty of space to edit and add notes, and the spacious, open pages allow for detailed scribbles about your important ambitions.

I also love that there are inspirational quotations throughout the planner.

I love how the sections are broken up with quotations from inspirational figures.

On each day of the daily planner, there is room to write something you feel grateful for, and space for affirmations. I also love that there is space to write something good that’s happened during the day- it’s clear that this planner aims to encourage both mindful and productive habits, which I love.

This planner includes lots of space for your goals, aspirations, and to-do list for the day.

I’m going to use this planner to track my blogging goals, and it’ll be great for managing my monthly viewing goals, for example.

I love keeping track of how many views I have each month (and how many I’d like to aim for) so this will be a great way for me to keep on top of everything and make sure I’m making the progress I want!

But even if you’re not a blogger, this planner is great for planning your goals, deciding where you want to be, and reminding yourself of what you’ve already achieved.

The journal has a lovely, open monthly planner. You can already see the scribbled notes I’ve started to make!

This *journal has lovely paper and it has a gorgeous cover. Costing just over £20, this is a good quality diary and definitely worth the price in my opinion. As well as good quality cover material and paper, I love how the start of the planner includes detailed information about how to plan for the future.

On a more practical note, the planner arrived super fast and so I was super impressed by the delivery time (UK).

There’s a space to note down long-, medium- and short-term goals right at the start of the journal, so you know exactly what you’re aiming for in the future.

Who would I recommend this planner for?

I love that you can add whatever dates you like into this diary, and so while it is aimed at users for 2020/21, it is possible to use it even this late in this year.

This would make a lovely gift for someone who’s enjoying using bullet-journals at the moment, or it would make a lovely addition to any busy blogger’s organised schedule.

This planner is also great for someone who is goal-orientated and motivated.

If you’re all about self-improvement, reaching your goals, and improving your productivity- then this is definitely the planner for you!
