Belle De Jour Planner: The Planner for Dreamers and Doers

Yesterday, I shared with you an article about realigning your life. You can read this post: http://mommyginger.com/2017/11/realign-your-life.html. The thing is, for you to successfully achieve goals, I have experienced that writing it down was really helpful in achieving these dreams. Writing it down and constantly reviewing it turned me into a DOER and not just a DREAMER. One of the tools that I use to accomplish my goals is my mighty Belle de Jour Planner.

I have been using Belle De Jour since the year 2010. Every year, I write down my plans and goals. For next year (2018), I love that the Belle De Jour Planner comes in three kinds. By the way, the 2018 BDJ planner was just launched last October 21 and 22 at the Shangri-la Plaza East Atrium. I also love that this year’s theme was celebrating uniqueness — “Dare to be you.” It was probably why there were three choices. Check out the 2018 planner in this video!

Together with the Belle De Jour Planner, the 2018 edition of the Navi Journal, Everything is Possible Planner, Focus Journal and the Essentials notebook were also showcased at the event.

The samples of the different products!

The launch of the planners and the other products was a great way to kickstart on setting your 2018 goals. There were a series of talks from Goal Gurus. There were also different activities that you could do! It was definitely a fun event. If you haven’t been to one, I highly suggest that you go to the one next year!

But going to the most crucial question, since it’s November already! My question is do you have a copy of the 2018 Belle De Jour Planner? If you do, what do you like about it? What are things that they can improve on?

If you don’t have a copy yet, please go to http://www.ilovebdj.com and grab one! Happy goal setting!

Ploodle Your 2016: Making it my own “I am Grateful for” Planner

A few days ago, I watched The Intern. I watched it because I read somewhere that it was the perfect movie for women entrepreneurs. When I learned that Anne Hathaway and Robert Di Niro were in it, I wanted to watch it even more. Well, after watching The Intern, I was super inspired to start this year on the right foot. These kinds of movies make you want to just get up, plan the year ahead and shout — GAME ON!

So the next thing that I did was just that. I stood up, got my planners and started making plans. I am such an OC person that I have 3 planners (one for work, one for the home and one to bring for anything urgent). Now, I even have an additional and unique planner for a very admirable mompreneur, Joy. It’s called Ploodle. Ploodle means PLAN and DOODLE.

Each page is wonderfully created by Joy and her friend, Reg. The hand drawn doodles are made by Reg, and the digital designs are by Joy. I love that you can even color the cover. It makes it more personal!

I realized recently how much I missed doodling. Do you know that doodling and coloring can decrease stress and cause higher level of creativity?  What I plan to do with this planner/coloring book is I will make it my own “I am Grateful for” Planner. For each day, I will write down things that I am grateful for.

My husband says that I am so negative when it comes to looking at myself.  haha! I always see my weaknesses and I seem not to care about my other many strengths. He suggested that I start writing down things that I am grateful for so that I can do away with my insecurities once and for all. I thank Joy for having such a beautifully made Ploodle that would be my tool to do just that — to see things in my life as blessings, to see the glass as half full and not half empty.

Grateful for this great find!

Thankful for this life,

Mommy Ginger
