The Full Focus Planner by Michael Hyatt
I’ve been following Michael Hyatt’s work for something like 10 years now, and if I had to summarize what he’s all about, I’d say it is — excellence. He started with a fantastic blog, expanded to a weekly podcast, and ultimately branched out into an entire company.
Michael has written a number of books, but if I’m not mistaken, the Full Focus Planner was his company’s first physical product. Let me be clear: this is no run-of-the-mill Moleskine. What Michael and his team have come up with is a complete system for managing your day-to-day, week-to-week, and month-to-month, and it looks just terrific.
The Full Focus Planner has templates for charting your goals, thinking through weekly & quarterly reviews, and architecting your morning & evening rituals. But what I’m most attracted to are its daily pages. Each day you’re able to track your “Big 3” tasks, other to-dos, basic schedule, and all of your notes. And Michael’s design team has done a terrific job with the overall layout. It’s really beautiful.
Make no mistake — the Full Focus Planner is a premium product. Each planner has enough pages for 90 days and retails for just under $40. You’ll save 20% with an annual subscription at $125, but it’s truly an investment. But as I think about it, I have to believe that if you were to fill every page and follow each of Michael’s suggestions (free coaching videos are included with your purchase), the results would easily surpass what you paid to get started.
