Organization has always been something I love. I love setting my monthly goals and am learning more and more on how to follow through on the goals thanks to my favorite goal setting tools. I am sure we all have made some goals with great intention, only to never glance at them again.

As I aim to be intentional in the different areas of my life, I have found two tools to be helpful. These are the Simplified Planner from Emily Ley and Lara Casey’s Powersheets. 

2017 PowerSheets Collection

Honestly, it would be embarrassing to admit how many planners I have gone through over the years. For all the planner fans out there, you know how important it is to find one that works. Finally, I have found a good fit in Emily Ley’s Simplified Planner. I love the variety of covers, quality of the planner, monthly layout, and daily layout. It is also the perfect size to slide into my bag. Head here to check out her planners. 

Lara Casey’s Powersheets were something I came across after reading Make it Happen. Immediately, I fell in love with the idea of these. The 2017 Powersheets were just released and I am so excited to receive mine. These really are the perfect tool to use as you set goals. Head here to check them out. 

I love to set up my goals with daily, weekly, and monthly focus. This is how Lara Casey’s Powersheets are set up.
