Get Ready for 2019 with the Rule the World Planner
Happy NOVEMBER everyone! I can’t believe it – between the good, bad and crazy, this year has truly flown by at record speeds. It’s scary to say, but 2019 is just around the corner! Every week, I try to plan ahead to prepare as best I can to stay true to my priorities, projects, to-do list, etc.
What’s helped me this year (and for the past few years), is my Rule the World Planner. I’ve tried all types of planners – digital and print, big and small, daily, weekly, colorful stickers, simple bullets, almost everything! This is the one planner I’ve loved the most!
The Rule the World Planner was created by the talented and fun, Ilana Griffo – who I love not only for her beautiful, useful designs, but also for her nonstop small businesswoman moxie. On her Instagram, she not only shares her own work, but work from other hustling artists and creators that inspire her. She truly embodies one of my favorite sayings ‘all ships rise with the tide’. As a fellow female entrepreneur, I cannot stress enough the importance of helping each other along the way.
Anyway, back to the planner… 🙂
Not only is it stylish, with gold edging and corner protectors – needed whoever that person is who just throws all their stuff into their bag (it’s me) – but it’s insanely functional. First, it’s spiral bound – again, I’ve tried a million planners and I’ve learned that I need something that’s this versatile! Then, each month is divided by a tab. Within each month division, there is a calendar layout of the month, an inspirational quote, a page for you to write down your goals (and review last month’s wins!), and, of course, your weekly plans. There are sketchbook pages, note taking pages and even coloring pages!
Here’s a full list of what you’ve got inside the Rule the World Planner:
- Budget log
- Coloring pages that help you quickly flip from month to month, and relax (or entertain your nephews)
- Inspirational quotes (hand-lettered from amazing artists!)
- Gold corner protectors and a durable board cover, with a gold foil cover design
- A place for monthly goals, and accomplishments
- Brain Dump – a place for you to jot down notes, no need for an extra notebook
- Weekly priorities – a place for you to write down what’s most important this week
- Weekly goals, and to do list – those items you can’t wait to cross off
- Monthly and weekly views.
- Daily Printable to plan your day by the hour, and track your water intake
- Grocery list so you’re always prepared
- Sketchbook pages
What I love is the reoccurring theme/option to review your goals. You start the month your goals. You start the week with your priorities. And, in the following month, you review it again! It’s a way to not only get on top of your everyday to-do’s, but also wrangle those big, hairy, insane goals!
The size is also perfect. It’s just 8.5 x 5.5 inches, making it the perfect size to fit in your backpack, your purse, or wherever!
BONUS: Ilana also offers printables on her website – including hourly day pages, brain dump pages, mileage, groceries, spending, etc.
As a busy, list-making, name-taking, gift-giving, goal-wrangling, always-on entrepreneur and human being, this planner really has helped me and I hope it might help one or two of you too! It feels great to be productive AND help a fellow entrepreneur!
