1- Kelly from AL writes in curious about digital planning (ie, planner-like templates you can purchase for tablet / laptop / phone). I have to admit that this realm of planning holds little inherent appeal to me personally, but I have to imagine there are some listeners out there that are into it!
2- Busy PhD student with unstructured days – listener M writes in with a need for a product to help her find more structure in her days. My recs: a great structured daily planner, like Full Focus, MakseLife, or EC Daily Duo. Alternatives: a flexible bullet journal with your own daily template!
4- Carolyn (who has her own podcast, Wellness While Walking!) asked about solutions for “that very long term task list that you want to remember to do, but those things aren’t pressing”? To me, this sounds like a Someday/Maybe list! Locations I have used: back of my planner, Apple Notes, Todoist
MakseLife Mini Review
I purchased the 6 month MakseLife Undated Weekly Planner & Goal Setting System for review! Price is $64, cover is quite sturdy, and the paper is fantastic and highly functional 80 lb / 120 GSM bright white recycled paper.
Here’s how I used the weekly spread:
planned workouts (moved to the top row in subsequent spreads!)
to do list
kids’ activities / family notes
dinners / evening events
Review Summary: A very well-made product with great paper and many goal setting features. On the pricier side, but you get a lot (and high quality) for the price point. The goal setting content may be too much for someone that just wants a simpler planning system, but if you’re looking to have it embedded into your planner, this is a really great system!

Best of luck to everyone as we adjust today!! I’m already tired . . .
