Notebook Review - Commit30 Planner

Commit30 Goal Planner
There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results
— Art Turock

While looking through Kickstarter.com to see if there are any good notebooks about getting organized, I came across the Commit30 Notebook by Jenny Newcomer.  This notebook is designed for organizing a plan to commit to a 30-day goal and the layout is set up like a planner to keep on task.

Jenny isn’t new to the Kickstarter market after raising $70,511 from 2,065 backers on her first campaign launched back in August of 2015.  This year she is back again with the 2017 notebook and I got the chance to see an early version to test fit it in our own notebook folio, shown below:

While confirming that it fits, I instantly wanted to start using the notebook to come up with my own goals and get to work on them.  An easy choice was exercising every day for the next 30 days, and I am already on track over the past three days.  The tactile feeling of getting a goal down, and scheduling time for this goal made it more real than just being interested in it.

The best part of the notebook is the instructions at the beginning to help visualize how you can start to make this part of your daily routine.  The unique feature I have not seen on any other planners is the column layout to differentiate between work and personal.  I typically have two separate notebooks, but this combines it all in one.  Sweet!
