The Free Planners for February 2013 Are Available

February’s free planners are now available for download.

February is a great month for reconciliation and groove-setting, given that we’re at least a month out from New Year’s resolutions and the year is still yet young. Many of us are also back into the flow of things from the holidays after spending much of the month catching up and planning for the year.

So, what major spring projects can you start finishing this month? I hope these planners get you closer to done. Have fun in the work!

Did you see the post on the updates to the 2013 planners? They’re fillable, more polished, renamed, and we added one to the bunch. Pick ’em up if you’re tired of waiting on us to share the free ones every month.

Monthly Action Planner

The Blog Post Planner and Calendar

Basic Idea: Brainstorming and planning your posts ahead of time may help you have a more streamlined, consistent, and insightful blog. Your mileage may vary, but it’s worth a shot!
Use when: You’re thinking about what you’re going to write.
For more information: The Blog Post Planner and Calendar – skip down to “How to Use These Planners” if you don’t need to be sold on why to use them.


The Proactive Project Planner

These used to be called the Freelancer Workweek but received a name change in 2012. Same concept, more apt name. We’ve also added the Individual Project Planner to the mix (finally!)

Basic Idea: Some of us work better to task than to time, and we need a planner that addresses how we work rather than making us fit how we work into it. This is a great one for people who think in terms of projects to manage as opposed to time that needs to be managed.
Use when: You’re tired of time-based planners and want to get clarity on what needs to be done.

    I love these planners. I really should invest in the annual series! For the moment though, I’m hoarding pennies.
    I’m having the same issue as kate on the above links, as well as the links on the Secret Lab page (except for the annual planner link – that one’s working).
    Thanks so much for making these available for free! Can’t wait to be able to support you by purchasing them someday!
