Lifestyle Blog: Life Goals & Business Organizational Workbooks

I recently came across a new concept for life organization- a life goals workbook.  I am a huge fan of being organized and developing my goals and creativity through journaling.  Throughout my early twenties, I was all about self discovery through the act of creative journaling.  I actually used to make my own form of life workbooks which helped me develop my beliefs and who I would become through that important phase of my life.  So when I first learned about the concept of a life workbook for personal or business growth and goal organization, I knew I had to find out as much as I could about all the possibilities that are currently out there.  Through my research, I have discovered that I am not alone in my craze for all things organized.  There is a huge international cult following for one particular brand of Australian company based life workbooks.  I decided to compile a list of these style of books and planners as I make my decision on which workbook to purchase for my own personal use.

The first form of life goals workbooks I have come across are by Australian based entrepreneur Leonie Dawson. Leonie Dawson's products focus on both personal or business organizational tools.  Her line of products are full of colorful and creative content that help one to develop a life or business model plan for the new year.  Check the videos below for a more detailed walk through of Leonie Dawson's My Shining 2017 Workbook and the other My Shining brand products available.
The next life organization tool I came across is a daily/weekly planner called the Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte.  These organizational planners are more closely related to traditional daily planners except they also include thought provoking pages that help you get more in tune with your goals. 
The next variation of a life workbook I came across are a newer brand created by the brand  Lavendaire. The Lavendaire Artist of Life 2017 Workbook is along the lines of the Leonie Dawson workbook except aesthetically they are much more simple and clean.  If you're not into the loud colors and pictures all over your workbook, then the Lavendaire workbooks may be more appealing to you.  The Artist of Life workbook breaks down life areas for continuous reflection on goals throughout the year.   

After conducting my research, I decided to jump on the Leonie Dawson bandwagon and purchase the My Shining 2017 Life Workbook.  I'm looking forward to starting to work in my book and see where it leads me in the coming year.  Do you have a favorite goal oriented planner or journaling process you rely on every year to keep yourself on track and in check?  Feel free to comment and share what works for you!
