I have been using a custom planner for my various project manager jobs for the past 8 or so years. It is a custom design intended to give structure to planning  a project without being too restrictive. I call it the Mindful Planner. The planner was inspired by some mindfulness meditation techniques that I picked up while living overseas.

Some of my colleagues asked for a pdf version that they could try out on their own. I made up a 2017 version that includes a quick tutorial in the beginning. If you are curious, or if you are simply in the market for a DIY new planner for 2017, please try out the Mindfulness Planner. Please let me know if it is useful for you and what features could make it better.

Good luck. Let’s make 2017 awesome.
