Most planners aren’t designed for the way you actually work.
They’re designed by well-meaning people stuck in the old way of thinking about time management. Specifically, those planners are designed for setting appointments and meetings in a traditional work environment.
It used to be that if you had a place — paper or digital — to track all of your meetings and appointments, you’d be good to go. But that’s not enough anymore.
You need a complete, intuitive system that helps you...
Identify your big goals and projects.
Break projects into daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly action items.
Plan when to spend time on action items.
Track progress on goals and projects.
How do these digital planners compare with the Free Planners?
We offer limited versions of our planners for free, so some people wonder why they should buy the more-encompassing planners when they can just get their planners every month at no cost.
The Digital Momentum Planner is worth $18 ($12 for 2023's 3/4 year) of your hard-earned cash, because you'll be able to:
- Plan the rest of your year at once
- See the actual months and days you're working in, instead of creating from a blank template each time.
- Use the Yearly Momentum Planner and the Quarterly Momentum Planner (only included in the Momentum Planner Digital Pack) to track your big-picture goals.
Upgrade to the Momentum Planning Bundle to tackle your biggest obstacles.
Doing your best work requires adaptability. Some days you need more structure, some days less. But regardless of your daily structure, your work has to align with your goals. And over our last decade of teaching and coaching, we’ve seen three distinct obstacles to success come up consistently.
The Momentum Planning Bundle includes three carefully created tools and strategies that help you overcome these challenges.
And yes, you could buy all three products separately. But since they work so well together, why not get them all at once and ensure you’ll have everything you need to conquer these challenges once and for all?
Not only do you get all these resources at once in the Momentum Planning Bundle, you get them at a discount. Rather than spending $12 for the 2023 Digital Momentum Planner, $15 for the Start Finishing Field Guide ebook, and $21 for the Momentum Planning e-Course — a total of $48 — you can get all three for $29. You save 40% if you buy all 3 tools at once in the Momentum Planning Bundle.
The Digital Momentum Planner can be used digitally or printed out, and includes daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly planners.
The Start Finishing Field Guide is our companion workbook to the award-winning Start Finishing. Step by step, convert your loose ideas into doable projects you can finish.
The Momentum Planning e-Course includes 15 lessons to help you plan, create, and finish your projects more effectively than ever before using your Momentum Planners.
A word from Charlie Gilkey, founder of Productive Flourishing
Before I started designing our planners, I loved the idea of having a ready-made tool to help me find a place for all the ideas, goals, and to-dos rolling around in my head, but in reality, they were always disappointing. Most were calendars and appointment books, which were useless to me (gee, thanks for duplicating the calendar on my computer... that’s helpful).
As I worked with more people whose success depended on being able to convert ideas into finished projects and demonstrable results — leaders, entrepreneurs, artists, programmers, students, change agents, and a host of other creative types — I realized that I wasn’t alone in thinking that the traditional planners just weren’t cutting it.
Unfortunately, bad experiences with those traditional planners have led many creative people to think that planners and planning don’t work for them. The simple fact is that creative people thrive when they plan how they’ll use their creativity.
Creative people like you need planners that support project management and time management.
You also need a system that allows you to schedule creative work during your personal peak times.
Since I couldn’t find a product on the market that fit my needs or the needs of my clients, I started making my own planners. Not long after that, I started sharing them with my friends and readers, experimenting along the way. I revised, added, deleted, and finally developed a variety of planners that help creative people focus on doing what matters and staying on track, instead of just crossing stuff off a list.

No, because this version is 100% digital. We offer this version so we can serve our worldwide customers and readers easily. If a printed version is your jam, we have that too! You can check out our beautifully bound Momentum Planner here.
Well, if that's the case, we have one! Head on over to this page to check out our awesome printed and bound Momentum Planner.
The Momentum Planner Digital Pack is a PDF Portfolio digital file. It will last you the entirety of the year. If you choose to print it out, it prints at 8.5" x 11".
You can plan monthly with our free planners, but to really do your best work, you’ll want to pull your Big Ideas together with your To-Do list. Our quarterly and yearly planners enable you to do that — and to plan more than a month ahead.
If you don’t have time to plan, you don’t have time to not plan. You have to make time to make time just like you have to have money to make money.
Our planners are laid out simply and intuitively, so that after a few projects, you’ll be a pro planner. In addition to creating the planners to be intuitive, we also offer our Momentum Planning e-Course. This course lays out our planning method over about 12 weeks (and if you've got a hankering for finishing it sooner than that, we have an option to view the whole course all at once!).
Our research and experience show that most people don’t get more than five important projects done per day anyway. The planners help you figure out the most important things you will do, not all the things you might like to do.
Our planners are not just calendars. They’re a full-fledged methodology that helps you focus on getting the right stuff done, and with our Momentum Planning e-Course you can learn all about it and how to implement it into your planning. You don’t need another calendar (your computer is great at that). You need a tool that helps you focus, prioritize, and take smart action.
Those tools are great. We use them, too. But they’re not great at helping you see what goals you’re going after; the multiple projects you need to do to achieve those goals; and how those projects end up on your calendar. That’s where these planners come in.
We’ve designed the planners to be elegant while making the best use of space. You ought to give them a try — you might just find they’re already the perfect size. And, if you decide they really are too big for you (8.5" x 11"), you can always check out our printed and bound Momentum Planner (a beautiful, undated planner that is 5" x 8").
