I'm not sure if the planner is different for subscribers. But I love it. It's easier to stay on track. It almost prompts you to move tasks forward and keep thinking ahead. Great design. Thank you.
Dear Michaell Hyatt Team,
I am loving my planner very much. I have only missed writing on it one day and have greatly regretted it. The only thing I would advice is that somehow the weekly review questions for sleep do not apply for the weekend if I do my weekly review on a Sunday. What I end up doing is I start doing the weekly review on Friday little by little and end on Sunday. This is because I am a mom with 6 kids (bottom two are 22-month old twins!) and I run a business to boot!
There is so little time. But the planner makes it possible to make us of what little time I have. It is giving me hope that I can first, take care of my family and grow my business better each day. I have also been able to set a lot of personal goals that I am already achieving. For instance, we are running a family 5K, and I am taking an online course!
Thank you so much and please keep adding things that could make the planner even more enriching.
I love the format of the Full Focus Planner. Between taking time to write out rituals, having plenty of places to track those habits, the daily big 3 and the week in Preview - I feel confident I'm three weeks closer to my goals! Love it!!
Love the new layout. The modifications to the Goal pages and Weekly Preview pages really help bring focus and clarity. However what I find most valuable is your commitment to keep learning and adapting to make it better. This is more than a planner for me it has become my “trusted system”. Thank you!
As an individual who strives for peak performance, I felt myself slipping needing a leg up. After years of disorganization, lack of focus, and the inability to prioritize effectively due to lack of crystal clear vision; enough was enough! I found FFP come up on a Facebook Ad of all places, hesistated for a few minutes after reviewing the proposal and then decided to pull the trigger and commit to the process via digital purchase (first time ever buying anything from FB Ad mind you). Long story short, I met one my annual goals by Q3 effectively netting my business $50k in pure equity from two real estate investment buy & hold purchases! Without the everyday review of my annual goals, having a clear vision of what I wanted, and prioritizing my Daily Big 3, I would have unlikely been attentive to the opportunities in the marketplace and missed out! The Power of FFP is real! Thanks Michael
My husband and I each have a FFP that we use for our small business. After 3 weeks of use I can already tell it is helping us achieve our financial goals faster. Not only have we implemented a daily morning and evening check in as part of our workday start and end rituals, but we have also been using some of the prompts in the weekly preview to discuss and then tweak the way we operate. Before using the FFP we were having fewer meetings and they were always long. Now we have more meetings but most are now short and very productive. We are addressing problems sooner and experiencing less overwhelm. We have also begun to carve out work-free times on weekends and that is creating a sense of boundaries between personal time and entrepreneurial responsibilities. This is key to preventing burnout, which has been looming, but is now thankfully receding! Our gross sales this month are double what they were this time last year, and at least part of that is due to our being better organized and more proactive, thanks to FFP.
I'm just scratching the surface by using the daily planner and task management functions. I'm looking forward to diving deeper into the monthly planning and long term horizon tools. I'm optimistic those tools will take my productivity to the next level.
This planner has helped me stay focused on my top goals. It helped me continue to go to the gym three times a week even during a crazy time at work, a week when I spoke at a conference, and a job change. It continues to help me focus on my top goals daily. I have yet to use all the pages (ie rolling quarters, ideal day) but even just the day to day and week review pages are helpful and worth it on their own. I definitely recommend this for anyone trying to get organized and stay focused on their top priorities.
I tried once again to abandon pencil and paper for complete electronic. Once again it didn’t work!!!!
I’m back for Good:)
I wanted to wait until I had used the new version before sending feedback. So having used the 2.0 planner for about 30 days now, I have to say I don't like it as much as the first version. In particular the font is not as easily readable, especially on the weekly preview pages where it appears the font is smaller to get more information on the page. It all just kind of runs together and seems more "techical" or "text bookish". The first version seemed more "fun" and free flowing. For some reason the overall feel of this newer version seems more clunky and complicated. For example marking the percentage of completion of the weekly big 3 is just over complicating it a bit too much. I feel like the first one just flowed naturally. If I could ask for one change it would be to separate the weekly review and weekend optimizer as before. I know this is candid, but I also know you all value feedback very highly, so I wanted to be honest. I truly am considering not renewing my subscription next year due to the changes. Thank you for producing great products and resources. My productivity and success has definitely improved as a result of the good work you all do.
Love the improvements you've made! I like that the weekend days are now laid out the same as the weekdays.
It would be more useful to move the annual goals section to the back of the book where it can be referred to when needed, but use the front of the book for more detailed quarterly goal documentation.
So for example if I have an annual revenue goal, it would be great to have space in the front of the book to write out my quarterly goals around that, and my targets for each month, plus key action items for achieving it. Then I can transfer those action items to the appropriate pages elsewhere in the planner. Currently there isn't really a space for this kind of quarterly planning, so I have to rig the planner and accommodate it elsewhere.
Also, it would be great to have options for the cover of the planner! A nice leather cover with new inserts each quarter would be great. Or at a minimum, other colors of the current woven cover.
Finally - since I originally signed up about a week into the new year, I receive my new planner each quarter after the quarter has begun. It would really be great to shift that so I'm getting my new planner a week or two prior to the start of each quarter, so I can get it up and running as part of my quarterly review process.
This is my first foray into the Full Focus Planner and I have found it to be incredibly helpful. While I am not using every aspect of the planner right now, just getting my feet wet, I look forward to increased integration into my leadership and planning. It has helped keep me focused in the day (a difficult task!) and that focus has brought about some small victories for me. I definitely recommend this, but in starting out, take the baby steps that are encouraged in the videos. Can't wait to have this habitually in my life in the coming months, second nature to my busy schedule!
I have a lot going on in many facets. I’m self employed. Two kids. Family. So this planner has helped me so far in prioritizing.
I used this planner for the first time last quarter. It helped clarify my goals & daily intentions. It reduced daily distractions. It increased my rest & play times.
Thanks - Brent
I am so happy to have discovered this planning system. After years of trying to convert to digital planning and feeling like something was missing, this planner is like therapy to me. I love the time that I spend “in my planner” really thinking about what matters, reflecting on the previous week, and focusing on the future.
I am only a few weeks in but the Full Focus Planner is giving me new motivation to win each day. I am cutting out distrations and getting much more accomplished every day. Glad I invested in this system. Thank You Michael Hyatt!
