Why did we create the Momentum Planning e-Course?
Hi there. I'm Charlie Gilkey, founder of Productive Flourishing and creator of the Momentum Planning approach. I'm also a pretty fun guy to eat burritos with (or so I’ve heard).
You might already know the story of what led me to start creating the Momentum Planners. But just in case you don’t, here’s what happened…
I’ve been working with people whose success depends on turning ideas into finished projects and demonstrable results for years — leaders, entrepreneurs, artists, you name it — AKA people like you.
As my clients and I explored ways to improve their productive output and tap into their greatest work, we tried TONS of planners. Calendar-based planners. Method-based planners. Digital planners. Paper-only planners.
What we discovered was that most work planners share the same fundamental problem: They’re built on a way of thinking about time that simply doesn’t apply to project-based work. You already have a calendar for your appointments, and a clock to help you get to them on time. You don’t need a new calendar or clock.
What you need is a new way of approaching your projects that allows you to be flexible with your schedule, but rock-solid with your goals. When I realized this, I set about creating the first Momentum Planners: a set of practical, project-focused planners that don’t rely on rigid hourly schedules or complicated bullet journaling. They’re perfect for helping you figure out what needs to get done — and then doing it.
Why the Momentum Planners work so well is that they're more than just pretty planners — they're the crystallization of planning, project management, and creativity principles that help people focus on what matters most. We created the Momentum Planning e-Course to teach the fundamentals that the Momentum Planners guide you to use. The e-course is a set of 15 lessons, ranging from basic to advanced, that perfectly complements the planners to help you reach new heights of productivity.
That’s why, when you enroll in the Momentum Planning e-Course today, you’ll also get access to the Momentum Planner Digital Pack.
Each tool empowers you to manage your time.
We help you to create a mindset that helps you avoid procrastination, perfectionism, creative doubts, and so on. And when used together, the tools help you step up your game to become a full-fledged momentum master.
If you’ve ever looked enviously at high achievers and thought to yourself, “How do they do it?”
If you’ve tasted the effortless creativity inside a true flow state and are looking for so much more.
If you’ve always wanted practical, structured methods that pave the way for your best work.
Then let’s start finishing your best work. Enroll in the Momentum Planning e-Course today.

Lesson 4: Start Your Yearly Planning with SMART Goals: Next, we will introduce long-term planning with the Yearly Momentum Planner and guide you in setting SMART goals to create some clarity. We’ll also address the three-week hurdle to help you identify and move past things that are getting in the way of doing your best work.

Lesson 7: Come Full Circle with Quarterly and Monthly Planning: The final tool in our Momentum Planning toolkit, the Quarterly Momentum Planner, is the final step in linking your big-picture yearly vision to the more tactical monthly, weekly, and even daily steps to success. We’ll also address the importance of review and reflection and teach you how to create and track milestones and benchmarks.
Lesson 8: Create Your Plan to Plan: Finally, we’ll share how to reinforce the Momentum Planning process by creating your own plan for planning.
