Get a jump start on 2018 – MiGOALS diary and journal giveaway


I use an Google Calendar for keeping track of appointments and events, but when it comes to list making, to do lists and planning out my year it is pen and paper all the way.

When I am writing my to do lists, I like to write what my goal is and the current project I am working on. Having to write my goal down frequently helps keep it in the front of my mind.

By keeping my goal top of mind, it means I am more likely to achieve my goal.  Research by Dr. Gail Matthews, a psychology professor at Dominican University in California, found that you are 42 percent more likely to achieve your goals just by writing them down {source}.

I also use my goal as a decision making tool and it really does help make it easier to decide where to spend my time. Before I take on new activities, I ask myself the question – will this help me achieve my goal?

I have been using notebooks and just writing in my own headings for this purpose, but I thought I would like to try and find something a little different for 2018 and started searching for something that would fit my needs. It took me some time to find something that I think will suit my needs, but I cannot wait for my MiGOALS Diary and Progress Journal to arrive in the mail this week!

The MiGoals – 2018 Minimal Diary – Weekly – A5 (15x21cm) – Hard Cover

While it doesn’t use the exact format I had been writing up myself it is very close! I chose the MiGOALS diary because it is much more than a simple diary. It has:

  • a section to review 2017
  • a section to write your goals for 2017
  • a monthly planner page for each month
  • weekly pages to write your goal/focus, to do’s and track your habits
  • quarterly review pages
  • plus more!

I am just about to start my end of year review, then goal setting for 2018 so it is the perfect time to test out these tools.

I also purchased the MiGoals – Progress Journal – A6 (10x15cm) – Hard Cover. It includes a daily to-do list to keep track of tasks, nightly prompts to stay focused and monthly reviews to keep the momentum going.

  1. What an awesome prize. Having the use of digital planning may be convenient to be able to sync with other family members so everyone knows what is happening and when but nothing quite beats writing down and committing to all your thoughts and goals using pen and paper.

  2. Anyone can set goals, but it’s having the ability to track them and have easy to use tools and a process to stick to them, and regularly assess where you are at that is so invaluable.

  3. The amount of times I made a todo list on note pads but nothing to hold me accountable or to be able to measure my achievements. Migoals diary and journal is the solution!!!
