For those seeking self-improvement and self-reflection and are intrinsically motivated to journal, the “Mom Planner” is an ideal way to accomplish both. I’m not sure why the title of this planner Is targeting mothers as it can be appropriate for anyone who would benefit from goal-setting and reflection planning.
The book is soft-covered and spiral bound with clear plastic overlay protecting the cover. The paper is a smooth yet not heavy bond and begins on the first page with the Goals section. It prompts the author to set professional and personal goals for the year, breaking them down into top priority, medium priority, and optional. The self-reflection concept is apparent through all the questions that appear in each section, such as “what are the main objectives to accomplish the goal and what are the essential steps to complete the objective.
The planner is divided by months, though it would be easier to zero in on a current section if tabs were provided. The pages are not numbered but it would be simple enough to place a bookmark on the correct page. I can only guess that there are 100 pages in the book, printed on both sides.
As an educator, I use these questioning techniques quite often when planning lessons for students and establishing learning goals and objectives. I also work with these formats when writing grant proposals. Personally, this planner makes a great connection from my work side to my personal side, although I could certainly choose my focus.
One suggestion to make navigation easier would be if tabs were provided. Also, the pages are not numbered but it would be simple enough to place a bookmark on the correct page.
While this book has planning focus, I can see it used as a type of diary, one that could be looked back upon and helping the author to self-assess accomplishments through a concerted effort of goal setting and self-reflection.
