The Free Planners for October 2012 Are Available

October’s free planners are now available for download.

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.

For many of us, October is the last of a peak groove month. November and December get split up due to holidays; the short days of winter also affect many of our ambitions and expectations. What major projects do you need to complete before the break(s)?

The Freelancer Workweek

Starting in 2013, these will be named the Weekly Project Planner. 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.
