Oh man… do I LOVE. decent planner/diary. Getting my ducks in a row, instead of squirrels at a rave, is what I’m all about. Now, admittedly I’m sometimes better at doing this for my clients, and forget about myself (hello, fellow business owners, I see you!), but this year I’ve got my stationary ordered and I’m super excited! here are some of my favourite diaries and planners for 2022 (there may be some affiliate links included… I’ll highlight these!).
The sustainable one
REAL (£25.00), A5 – Who would I be if I didn’t include this, huh? This quarterly planner and diary is a must for those who are also passionate about sustainability. It includes actions and notes, focus priorities, weekly advance plan, monthly goals and actions. AND it’s not dated, so you roll with the punches as to when you want to start using it. Mine is on my desk.
The social content one
Janet Murray’s Courageous Content (£47.00) – For those who like to write their social media calendars on paper, this is for you! this planner guides you through 2022 with inspiring and easy to follow content ideas for the days you may be a little stuck on, a full breakdown of usual and important diary dates for 2022, a content planner broken down by day AND time, AND by Quarter! it’s seriously impressive, and easy to follow.
The creative one
Papier Diaries and Planners (prices from £16.14+) Paper are a creatives dream. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, but they are brilliantly functional and easy to use. They have pocket diaries, as well as standard and A4 size, and planners too. The nice thing is you can customise them and have your Owen name and brand colours included. Which is a sweet touch.

The mindful one
SELF journal (£29.95) This is for really setting goals, being productive, mindfulness, taking ownership, and deep focus. It take a little getting used to (it even come with guidelines and links to watch videos for guidance!), so if you’re interested, buy now, have a read over a weekend, or holidays, and get stuck in at the start of a month. They also sell card decks that are useful for entrepreneurs.
The manifesting one
Law of Attraction life planner (£24.52) Since covid hit, more people have been honing in on manifesting their dreams, and seeing them through to reality. So if that’s your kind of thing, I’d recommend this planner. It’s got goal setting, journal pages, habit trackers, a success roadmap, and (which calls to the inner child in me) STICKERS!
