Digital Planner for iPad with multiple templates

How the Planner Works

You start by downloading the planner document and saving it into GoodNotes or Notability on your iPad.

It works in a similar fashion as an analog planner (paper notebook), but with a few key advantages.

Once it’s on your iPad, you’ll see that there are tabs along the side of every page with buttons that allow you to quickly jump to any section within the planner. These tabs, quick links, and buttons allow you easily and quickly navigate all throughout the planner.

You can tap around on buttons, dates, and other links in order to quickly move around in and between the different sections. And, of course, you can also swipe around between the pages as you go.

There are over 6,000 internal document links, ensuring that no matter where you are, you can quickly get to anywhere else, and back again.

Based on a Proven System — All You Need is to Follow Along

The planner is meant to be used on a daily basis. You begin with the first section that helps you establish your annual goals and desired outcomes. It then helps you distill those down into quarterly, monthly, and even weekly goals. And then helping you turn those into daily actions.

The planner helps you take your ideas, hopes, and goals and then turn them into part of your daily activity.

The system in the planner is based on the proven ideas that I teach in my flagship productivity class, The Focus Course.

Using the Digital Planner for iPad

The Interactive, Full-Featured Planner That's Built for the iPad.

After years of study, teaching, and research, we've identified the most important components to living with focus every day. We've incorporated those into our digital planner so you don’t have to think about it.

The Focus Course Planner is designed to help you get clear on what you need to do, ensure you have the time in your schedule to do it, and to help you stay organized.

Simply work your way through, each day at a time, following along with the system.

Simple and minimal enough to allow for your own approach to task and time management.

Structured enough to save you time and energy and to trust the system.

Annual, Quarterly, Monthly, and Weekly Goal Setting

Let the planner help you find clarity and define what success will look like each month. Determine how you can make regular progress toward your goals and desired outcomes. And move forward with your most-desired outcomes for each big season of life.

A Section for Each Month

Each month has a “home page” with quick access to the monthly and weekly goal setters. The daily planner pages. The review pages. And more. Simply take each page one day at a time - following the system to help you identify the most important projects and goals for the week, and block out the time you need in order to make them happen.

Stay Focused and on Track Every Day

This is where life happens, day in and day out. Don’t overcommit and end the day feeling frustrated. Identify your three, most-important tasks for the day and then schedule your day to ensure you have the time you need. Plus space for additional notes.

Log Certain Days in Your Own Index

Use the index pages to log the location of any particularly important pages, ideas, thoughts, and more so you can quickly find them again in the future.

. . . . . .

Dot Grid Pages for Notes, Mind-Maps, Sketches, etc.

A large section of dot-grid pages are in the back of the planner. If you need more, you can simply add them from within GoodNotes. You can even rearrange pages, clear them, bookmark them, and/or export them.

However a Monday will be incorporated as an option for out 2021 version! If you are interested in a Monday start, then we suggest you check out our course, Learn GoodNotes, that comes with several productivity templates for the iPad.

Is the Planner an App?

A: While the interactive nature of our digital planner may make it seem like an app, it is an incredibly detailed and interactive PDF document. It is basically a digital version of a printed notebook, meant to be written in by hand and doodled on within in a handwriting iPad app such as GoodNotes or Notability.

Can I use the Planner on my Mac or iPhone?

A: The planner is designed for use on the iPad. While, depending on the app you choose to use to view your planner, you can technically view it on your iPhone or Mac the experience may differ and would not be ideal. On the phone it would be very small and you'd need to scroll around. On the Mac you could easily view it and edit with text or inserted shapes, but you wouldn't be able to hand write on it.

Does the Planner Sync to my Other Devices?

A: If you use GoodNotes, then your planner document will sync between any other device you have GoodNotes on, thanks to GoodNotes' usage of iCloud sync.
