From the Publisher
Based on an extensive study of high performers and how they increase productivity, set goals, prioritize, and create the positive mindset and habits needed to Win The Day, Brendon Burchard has created this Planner to help you reach your highest performance!
Use this Planner every day (yes, every single day) and you will start focusing on what matters. You will get more done and feel better doing it.
Available in six different colors, this Planner is unlike other planners. You won't find a bunch of random success quotes in these pages. Instead, you have a workhorse of a Planner where every single inch is used to help you improve your mindset, plan your next move, track what matters, and truly learn about yourself.
This is a thinking person's Planner - it's built for people who want to do the real work required to succeed every day, week, and month.
There are four types of pages in this Planner: Daily, Weekly, Monthly Review, and Monthly Preparation
Daily Pages featuring Morning Mindset and Evening Scorecard
Start your day with clear intention by filling out the 10 Morning Mindset prompts. These 10 questions will help you start the day positive, confident and focused on what matters the most. End the day with 6 questions and 6 scorecards that help you review and develop the habits that lead to long-term success.
Weekly Pages, featuring the Whole Life Assessment and High Performance Habits Assessment
Each week, you’ll review your lessons learned and also score yourself in 10 major life areas: health, mission, family, learning, finances, friends, spirit, mental/emotional energy, love/heart, and experiences. You’ll also complete the High Performance Habits assessment, a proven professional tool that helps you improve upon the habits that correlate with long-term success.
Monthly Review Pages
Extra pages and journaling exercises help you review what you learned the last 30 days about yourself, your relationships, and your mission. A long-term goal section helps you re-align your tasks toward 1- and 3-year goals.
Monthly Strategy Pages
Strategic writing prompts help you anticipate the major projects, events and deadlines for the month ahead. You’ll also fill out the Whole Life Assessment to keep you track, score and balance the major areas of your life every single month.

1. Love the idea of combining morning/evening journal with a planner.
2. 60-day "sprint" format is a plus vs quarterly or annual approach to create more urgency.
3. Brendon's weekly, and monthly journal/planning questions are solid. What I like most is that the short-answer morning and evening journal questions are in your face every day on the daily plan pages. I can see this creating a helpful tail-wind to initiating and sticking with a daily journaling habit.
4. Price is right; keeps it accessible for almost everyone. Quality appears to be sufficient so it will likely last the 60 days for which it is intended. But I would pay twice this much (and do) for a different planner.
1. Way too much space allocated to the daily calendar on the daily plan pages.
2. No meaningful space for top 3, other daily tasks. These were crammed in to remaining space on the pages.
3. Morning and evening journal questions are good, but no additional space is available in the daily spread for additional journal writing or taking notes as the day progresses.
4. Would prefer to see a 1-page index at the front of the journal, and for the pages to be numbered to support an index.
5. The overall size of the planner is pretty large; the space on the 2-page daily plan spread could have been utilized much better.
It would be great if Brendon Bouchard and Michael Hyatt (Full Focus Planner - the planner I currently use) would get together to create a hybrid.
This planner is a 60 day planner (so you'll find it only has 2 monthly planner pages, 60 daily pages, 9 weekly pages, and grid paper at the back). You are supposed to use a new planner every 2 months (which is why it's beneficial to order multiples and in different colors).
Writing out goals like this is far more effective than putting it in a phone, computer, or digital device. So it's going to work better than an app or online software.
If you break down the cost of the planner, it is around $10/month at full price, which is typically what a good online service or app would likely charge that did the same thing. Because it's a physical planner and we actively write in it, it increases the likelihood of actually sticking to our goals and achieving them.
The dates aren't labeled, so they work anytime. I believe the reason he made it only 60 days is because it would be too big, thick, and awkward to use otherwise.
It has some assessments in the beginning and weekly and monthly pages to evaluate your progress. If you've read Brendon Buchard's books or watched his videos, everything will be familiar to you.
I've been a fan of Brendon for years, but I kept lacking the daily discipline to stay on task. This planner helps me with that. I wish he made a kids version so I can get my daughter doing it too.
Overall, it's an excellent planner that is well thought out and makes you think about the things that matter to you and helps you work towards them. It should be used daily and in conjunction with other tools if you want to see real progress in your life. This is simply a great tool to use at the start of your day.
So the key is to know what you're buying, why you're buying it, and what difference it's going to make for you.
I bought this planner to help me stay on track and achieve my goals. I want to be successful, so this is a worthwhile investment. The cost is reasonable and a good value. It's a very high quality planner.
If you want to see changes in your life, get it. It will help you make it happen.
I cannot believe the price on the journal. It’s a steal at this price! So, thank you for that!
There is not any monthly pages before the daily pages. There are monthly pages after the first few weeks of daily pages. I’m not sure if that was intentional or not. But I started mid-month and I don’t really have use for them until December - they are there though!
Spoiler: The planner won’t work if you leave it sitting unopened!
You won’t be disappointed. This planner is fantastic!
Top international reviews
There's a lot of oddities about the daily pages; the sections at the top are just empty blocks rather than lined writing areas but the notes section at the bottom is annoyingly filled with dots. The middle 50% of the double page spread could have been designed in half the space it takes up and, therefore, strips away space that could have been used for more 'productivity, inspiring' sections like the top 3 goals and priorities, breaking thise goals into tasks, the tasks that absolutely must be done today and the people to connect with.
It's not good enough for the price. Taking up an entire page for a quote from the 'author' is a bit of a 'look at me' moment and the 2 full page adverts for the High Performance Planner website is a bit much. Give me a break, I've bought your product not as a platform for you to big yourself up and advertise to me.
- If you can stick with it, there will be a marked improvement in your habits and motivation. However I couldn’t stick with it because of the cons
- very large book, not travel friendly. I have to leave it at home which defeats the point of a planner/motivation journal. I’d rather have it with me as I go about the day and refer back to it.
- I feel the daily prompts and questions are very repetitive. Same questions that are worded slightly differently but yield the same answer
- the day ends at 7:30 pm and there is no space for events or tasks that might happen after that. A major oversight.
- the monthly overview is at the END of the daily pages, which is extremely inconvenient.
If it was more travel sized and the day lasted till at least 10pm, the rest of the issues could be overlooked.
Only thing that really surprised me is that it’s only for two months apparently. Not sure if I miss read that in the description but it’s hella expensive then imo.
Using it daily has changed my mood, attitude and results positively!
Skipping one or two days not using the planner and there's a CLEAR difference in my productivity.
Only downside to the planner is not truly understanding what each component on the Daily Habits Scorecard section means and how to accurately score yourself on each of them everyday.
I have found some extra video training called High Performance Habits provided by Brendon that does a deep dive into what each one means and how to apply it/how to score yourself but it costs $300 for that training. Admittedly, he does eventually bundle it with some other trainings but still, $300? Yeesh!
Guess you have to invest in yourself if you are ever going to see any results so I think I will be getting the training as well cos the planner definitely works if you work it!
There's a lot of other issues I have. I understand the importance of all those questions, but it gets monotonous after the first 2 weeks. There's no upfront planning space for your goals, whether weekly or monthly. It's all retrospective (looking back, never forward). The questions get devalued over time. How many different words can you use to describe "one word to describe the kind of person I want to be today".
I do like Brendon. Read his book. He is a guru. But not impressed with this planner.
I have bought a few planners and this is the first one that didn’t overwhelm me with so much to texts to go over before getting to use my planner.
Buy this planner if all you want to do is just focusing on your daily plans. Worth the money 100%
I’ve added my own pen loop, which could do with being added. Another review mentioned there was no monthly planing page at the beginning... why isn’t there one? Why would you not want to plan your first month? Plus there isn’t a yearly plan at the beginning - I’ve then used the monthly planning page at the back.
It was also a shock that it’s A4 as that wasn’t explained but it’s very handy being A4 to get everything in and not cram everything in.
The fact that it is helping me to take care about my mindset in the morning and evening and has weekly and monthly review pages, lots of questions- it certainly compliments the High Performance Habits book
This is not a yearly, weekly or monthly planner. It is only focused on looking ahead each day. There are sections for weeks and months but those are retrospective and not forward-looking.
The weekly review has many very detailed questions that are phrased, oddly, in reference to “today” versus “this week.” It appears to be a quality-control oversight. Also, the detail level of those questions are indeed more appropriate for a daily review than a weekly review, so it looks like they’ve taken a daily review list from another iteration of the design and slapped it into the weekly review section.
As other reviewers have said, there is a lot of real estate on each page dedicated to the daily schedule, while the other areas are quite cramped, and the daily schedule only goes up to early evening.
The difference between “Today’s Top 3 Goals/Priorities” and “Tasks that Absolutely Must Be Done Today” is not clear. The author has a video where he addresses this and criticizes those who could be confused by this, going on to give a very vague and not really credible description of the difference.
When I contacted the company’s customer service email about some of these issues, they were evasive and pointed me to a facebook group of “Brandon’s Students.”
Finally, I’m not a big fan of self-proclaimed gurus who are marketing their stuff by saying “you too can be as productive as me.”
Onward to Panda Planner Pro or another option. I may even take some of the more useful questions from this planner and some of the features I like from other planners design one for my own use.
