So it's 2021! And all the enthusiasm and excitement for the new year fizzled out really quickly with the massive unrest around the world, particularly here in America. It's hard to feel optimistic when it seems like the very foundations of democracy are cracking. Between that and the relentlessly ongoing and ever-worsening pandemic, it's feeling pretty bleak... but! Things will get better, they must get better!
Whilst we can't necessarily control what's going on outside our doors, we can certainly make changes in our own lives, which can have massive impact on the world. Which is why I am so excited to introduce the Goal Setter & Goal Getters Productivity Giveaway. I've put together a fabulous bundle which can really help you to focus on what it is that you want you to achieve, and give you all the tools to get there.
First up is a $100 gift voucher to spend right here in the Plan The Things shop! For $100 you could order a whole set of quarterly calendars, or a couple of giant annual calendars and a focus and goals planner, your choice. Or you could get yourself some giant calendar goodness now and save the balance for the digital products which will be listed in the store starting in February.
Secondly, and this is something that I am sooooooo excited about, is LIFETIME access to the astounding to-do list / project management / productivity app, Amazing Marvin*. As a lifelong seeker of The Perfect System to manage All The Things, I have jumped between Things, Asana, Trello, Clickup, ToDoist and a whole bunch of other apps which were at some point rejected for one reason or another (too ugly, too listy, too overwhelming, too dry, too simple, not simple enough... I could go on). Amazing Marvin is fully customizable to suit the way that you work, with the bigger goal of helping you overcome procrastination. What this means for me personally is that when I inevitably get bored of my setup and start to drift away from the structure, I can just set up different strategies and layouts within Amazing Marvin and keep on going with renewed enthusiasm. Sooo much better than switching platforms every few months and starting all over again from nothing. I love it, plus there's a super cool little animated dude, Marvin who dances and celebrates when you get stuff done. What more could you possibly ask for? One of these days I'm going to do a giant blog post about why exactly I love Amazing Marvin, but for now, know this. You have to try it. The founders, Christina and Mark are amazingly responsive to suggestions as Marvin evolves into even more of a powerhouse than it is already, plus they're tremendously generous. You would be sooooo happy with lifetime access to Amazing Marvin, I promise you!
And last but not least, I've thrown in a couple of excellent productivity books which will help you focus on what you've got to get done (The One Thing) and make sure you consistently make time to do the things you need to achieve your goals (Atomic Habits). I love The One Thing because you are reminded over and over that focus is what matters, not multitasking. Imagine if every single day you asked yourself what one thing could you do today to make everything else easier? Imagine the progress you could make when you identify the right things to work on at the right time. Atomic Habits shows you the potential of changing your life by making tiny choices and taking tiny actions each day - which add up over time to a massive amount of progress and change.
I am so excited about this giveaway, I truly am. It's open to anyone over 18 and entries are open until midnight EST on January 18th, 2021. Books will be mailed within the UK or sent via Kindle to the rest of the world. Please take a tiny moment to enter the giveaway and spread the word to any friends who might also enjoy this prize package valued at $450!
