You've always had big dreams. Destiny has called your name. There's something special in you... something uniquely yours to offer the world.
But life has sucked some of the joy from your dreams.
You're busy. Demands fly at you from every side. Every day it seems like you have to run faster and keep more plates spinning. You work so hard, but lately it feels like you're getting nowhere.

Over the past three years I have spent hours experimenting with different ways to organise my life. It became a daily obsession - I would purchase a planner or a set of printables and like it at first, but it always felt like something was missing. I could not figure out what. I felt very disappointed and decided I would never buy another planner ever again!
Then.... I found your planner. Dreams by Design is the best planner I have ever, ever used!!!!! It has everything I have been searching for, from goal setting to the weekly layout. I also love the oversized page that opens up so you can see your To Do list against the weekly plan.
The design is genius - I could just cry I am so happy!!"

I wanted a planner that was extremely functional, but also beautiful.
And I wanted a planning system that would kickstart massive productivity and enable me to smash my personal goals.
I'm thrilled to have created my perfect planner, and I know you're going to love using it just as much as I do.
Let's take a look inside at all the jam-packed features that come with EVERY copy of the Dreams by Design printable Planner.
When I decided to make my own planner, it was because I'd tried just about every system on the market - sometimes spending hundreds of dollars on a single purchase - and still couldn't find exactly what I was looking for.
The Dreams by Design Planner is my perfect system, born out of years of frustration with planners that simply didn't meet my needs.
I wanted a planner that would support long-term goal setting and allow me to reverse-engineer my life - starting with the big picture and working down to the small stuff we need to keep track of in everyday life.
I wanted a planner that encouraged consistent follow-through, month after month and week after week.
The Dreams by Design printable Planner will help you envision the life you truly desire - and then brainstorm long-term goals to help you achieve your dreams. There's plenty of white space for you to dream, imagine, and creatively brainstorm the things you want to accomplish across all areas of your life.
Next, you'll be guided through the process of selecting three focus goals for the year. Research consistently shows that successful people have mastered the power of focus. We'll be using the "Power of Three" to hone our focus as we set yearly, monthly and weekly goals throughout the entire year.
Yearly Goal-setting pages
I purchased the Dreams by Design 2016 planner and LOVE it! I began using it just after the New Year and it truly has been a key organizational tool keeping me focused and on track with my work and personal development goals."
Goal planning worksheets
Once you've selected your three focus goals, we're going to break them down into a series of sub-tasks.
Faced with an overwhelming project? Feeling daunted? Don't know where to start? Find it easy to set grandiose goals, but very hard to actually follow through?
This method is a simple and practical way to break down overwhelming goals into manageable bite-sized pieces. In as much detail as possible, you will list out absolutely every single little thing needed to complete your goal.
Then, you'll allocate a month by which that sub-task will be completed, so you can keep track of your progress toward those long-term goals throughout the year. Tick them off as you complete each task, and you'll be surprised by how easy it becomes to achieve something that once seemed far out of reach.
Yearly overview and calendar
To get a birds-eye view of what you can realistically accomplish over the course of the next twelve months, it's essential to sketch out an overview of your year. A full double-page spread with blank month boxes allows you to jot down the goals, sub-tasks and projects you will be focussing on each month. This overview will become your master plan for the year.
There's also a dated 12-month calendar so you can record special events, engagements, holidays and time away, to give you a realistic picture of the time you have available each month, and a snapshot of your entire year at a glance.
Get a jump-start on your organisation for the year ahead, with this handy Birthday calendar. There's space to record essential names and birthdates, as well as a list of possible gift ideas, so you can plan ahead and make the most of sales. Never be caught out unprepared
There's also a Christmas gift planner so you can start collecting gifts throughout the year and avoid that crazy last-minute
Dreams by Design is hands down the best planner I have ever had. I love that I'm able to put down all the things I need to know and remember in one spot and not have to have three or four different notebooks all over the place."
Each month begins with a gorgeous cover page (in your choice of nine styles) and a dated month-to-a-view calendar. See your commitments for the month at a glance.
Dreams by Design helps me to stay focused on my small and large tasks for each day, each week, and each month. The schedule allowed me to see where I could work on my goals through out the week while still managing my work responsibilities. I love this planner!"
What time can you block out for working on your goals? Are there similar tasks you can batch together on a weekly basis? What are the things you want to do that relax and replenish you? Schedule them, and they will happen.
This is your Master Schedule. Refer back to it as you plan your week.
Make the most of your money and find your lost time
Monthly Master List, Budget worksheet and Master schedule
The really powerful feature of this section is the unique Forget-Me-Not system.
At the start of every month, take a few minutes to check back in on your Yearly Overview and see which tasks need to be completed this month to move you in the direction of your goals and dreams. You can write these tasks down on your Monthly Master list.
Chances are, you'll have plenty of tasks and ideas swirling around in your head - things you know you need to accomplish. Instead of letting them niggle at you, adding to your stress levels and often ending up forgotten anyway in the rush of life, get them down on paper.
Instead of dumping everything down on paper and then forgetting about it two days later, the entire Monthly Master list folds out, so you can refer back to it at the start of each week when you set your weekly goals. This system will keep you on track, creating powerful follow-through all the way from the big picture (your dreams and long-term goals), right down to the nitty-gritty of your weekly and daily schedule.
The white spaces that are left are yours
to design the life of your dreams.
There is room for four categories of your choosing - perhaps work, home, a specific project, and personal goals. By categorising your tasks, you give your mind room to breathe, knowing nothing will be forgotten. You'll then use the Power of Three to select three top priorities for the month.
The monthly budget worksheet will help you stay on top of your finances, while the Master Schedule will help you identify the lost time in your life that you can use to accomplish your goals.
Use the schedule to block out the recurring events in your life, such as work, study, school pick-ups, kids' extracurricular activities, and so on. What other recurring tasks do you need to get done on a weekly basis, but sometimes struggle to manage? Laundry? Dinner prep? Cleaning? Exercise? Slot them in.
Daily layout: Life Edition
This is where the magic happens. This is where the rubber hits the road. This is where your yearly and monthly goal-setting is transformed into action.
Start each week by folding out your Forget-Me-Not Monthly Master list, and jotting down the tasks you'll be tackling this week on your Weekly To-Do list - right at the top of the page.
Use the Power of Three to select Three Priority Tasks for the week. Tick them off as they're accomplished.
Then each day, check in on what needs to be done and write yourself a daily to-do list.
There's also a daily schedule where you can record appointments and block out your time.
Other convenient features include a weekly Meal Planner, and a Week at a Glimpse Planner / Tracker. You can customise this to your individual needs to give you a snapshot of your week in a specific area. Use it to write out your exercise plan, track daily calorie intake, plan a cleaning schedule, record your daily word count, plan out blog posts for the week, or plan activities you'll do with your kids. The choice is yours!
The Dreams By Design Planner is the best planner I have ever used! I love that there is so much space to truly prioritise and plan our family’s week!"
The Dreams by Design Planner also comes in a Faith Edition. You'll be able to select your preferred option at checkout. Here you'll find an encouraging Scripture for each week, as well as space for your personal prayer list. How many times have you told someone you'd pray for their particular need, but then forgotten to do so? Here's a way to keep prayer a central focus.
This planner is identical to the Life Edition in every other respect.

Is Dreams by Design for you?
This planning system will help you if:
I have long been a "planner person," and have been a loyal Erin Condren lover for years - but the Dreams by Design planner in 2016 took my love for planners to a whole new level. I LOVE the separate space each day for a to do list and my schedule - as well as the weekly to dos, priority tasks, and meal planning - and perhaps my very favorite, a weekly prayer list! This planner has kept me focused and helped me achieve my 2016 goals as I took my photography business full time!"
