Diaries – surely we’re past thinking about those now the start of 2017 is long gone? Well guess what, if you’ve got an amazing diary, any time is a good time to decide to get organised! We know what you’re thinking – what about the dates and all that? Not all diaries are created equal, and the Hello Time planner is “a flexible combination of diary, notebook, journal, to-do lists, sketchpad, thinking space and planner in one”.

The diary aspect of the Hello Time Planner is flexible – meaning you write in your own dates, so theoretically you can start using it at any time of the year. You shape your time, your time doesn’t shape you! The diary also features all sorts of little details to keep you on track, ensure you stay motivated – or simply make you smile.

There’s space to add a rating for each week – Cool, Calm, Colourful or something else entirely? Or perhaps it’s more Serious, Super or So-So? Each week has a full page for the days Monday to Friday, so you can add meeting and appointments, plus a page for any notes that you might have. It’s a layout which we find really works for keeping on top of things and means that nothing gets overlooked and slips through the net…

Aside from the day to day diary stuff, the Hello Time Planner also has pages for each month – so you can see what’s coming up and plan ahead. And right at the start of the planner, there’s perhaps the most important page – and one which we think should be in every diary – a space for you to note down your goals. Need reminding of your goals? Flip back to the front page, re-inspire yourself and get things back on track. What do you want to do more of/explore/learn/decide/kick start?

We’re living in a time of #inspo and the Hello Time planner is packed with inspiring quotes, which jump off the pages and re-invigorate you with inspiration. We like this a lot. Other useful features include spaces for 2AM Ideas, Dreams, Plans of Action, Bright Ideas and even a Brain Dump! You’ve also got plenty of blank pages for you to do whatever you’d like with. And pages for To-Do Lists – with check boxes. The ultimate satisfying life planning moment…

Will you ever need another diary? Probably not. Time to start planning the life you want to live? Definitely! The Hello Time planner from Illustries is available to buy online here.
