Productivity Journal Review: The Productivity Planner by Intelligent Change

By Amazon, Inspiration, Life, Reviews, Shopping, The Web, ThinkingNo Comments

The Productivity Planner by Intelligent Change is a journal aimed at boosting your productivity.

It focuses on single-tasking rather than multi-tasking and doing the most important task of the day first. It also uses The Pomodoro Technique. The Pomodoro Technique is working on a task for 25 minutes without distraction or procrastination and then taking a 5 minute break.

Here are some images of the Productivity Planner:

Weekly Notes.

Like any productivity journal the Productivity Planner has Pros and Cons. Here they are:

Pros Cons
  • Its design is smart and business-like.
  • It’s compact and light to carry.
  • It’s dateless, meaning you can start using it at any time.
  • It prioritises tasks into: Most Important, Secondary and Additional.
  • It has Weekly Planning/Review sections.
  • It has a place for Notes on each day and a full Weekly Notes page.
  • Every daily page has an Inspirational Quote and a Productivity Score (1-10).
  • It has circles next to tasks to measure time. You set a Target and then record the Actual, helping you to allocate a more realistic amount of time for tasks.
  • It has a bookmark ribbon and an elasticated closure.
  • It is really designed for business use. It only has a 5 day week.
  • There’s no Done boxes to tick tasks off on the daily pages.
  • The planner only has 6 months worth of pages in it. Meaning you would need to buy two for 1 year.
  • It is expensive for a journal, being priced at £20+.
  • There’s no short term, medium term or long term goal setting pages.
  • There’s no monthly or yearly view pages.
  • It is black and white throughout.
  • There isn’t anywhere to record rewards for completing tasks. I find rewards really motivating.
  • There’s no way to organise tasks into groups, e.g. Personal, Business, Health, Family/Friends, etc.

The Productivity Planner is available to buy on Amazon.

In my next Productivity Journal Review I will be reviewing the far superior Inspire Now Journal by Inspire Now Daily, which I absolutely love.

Write soon,
