Fab is winner of this giveaway! Congratulations!
It is the season of gifting and as my blog completes 3 years this year, I have a few surprises lined up for you!I kick start the festivities with this incredibly amazing planner that you should own. I was introduced to the world of planners in the end of 2013 and I must say that it has helped me to organize my work better.
Win A Diligent Heart Planner
Marlene Griffith, the lady behind A Diligent Heart planners has created a range of planners that can suit your biz. This planner runs from Jan 2015 – Dec 2015. It is an incredible planner that allows you to jot down all your everyday tasks that need to be accomplished. With this planner, you can keep track of important dates, make a note of your monthly goals, and jot down important events, notes and also track birthday’s and anniversaries. Marlene has planners that also include a meal planner and a day at a glance view, so if you would be keen to to use one of those, you can view the entire range of planners for 2015 by her.
How does this planner work?
I chose the weekly planner in the giveaway instead of the daily version because I found the layout more simple and attractive. I have already started writing my goals in it. The layout for the weekly planner allows you to jot down your tasks for all through the days of the week. It also has a space for your to jot your notes if any. The two page week at a glance allows you to view all your weekly goals. You will need to download the file, print and bind it to be able to use it effectively. The entire planner is a total of 174 pages. When printed back-to-back, it totals 87 sheets of paper.

Lovely Planner 🙂 My greatest productivity challenge is to keep abreast of my progress towards my goals. With 2 kids and lots of things to do around the house I tend lose my focus on my goals. The 2 week page at a glance will help to check the progress I have made..
Oooh, the planner looks lovely!! My greatest productivity challenge is managing everything at once – work, household chores, self (exercise, sleep etc.), quality time with family. I’d like to see everything I need to do at a glance, so that I can plan my day, week, month and year better! And at the same time, I need to keep an eye on my life goals too!
Oh my greatest productivity challenge is to keep track of my cake orders, and manage my home and my kids. Finance is another thing that I am bad keeping track of. With this planner, I can not just schedule my cake orders, but also find the time in between cakes to write a blog post, try new recipes, make my figurines ahead of time and prioritize.
I would love it if I were to win this challenge Pratibha, thanks for the chance to win this awesome giveaway! 🙂

Typically in a week there are several tasks lined up to do. I write for clients, study and research on storytelling, draw up lesson plans for my sessions, write for myself and spend time on social media marketing activities. As a solopreneur working on a varied service line, a lot of my time is spent in jumping from one task to another, shifting gears constantly.
However, many times tasks don’t get over in the stipulated time. Sometime new tasks warrant urgent need. And so I am left struggling with what to complete and how. I feel I need to better allocate my time to keep room for some extra time when I can complete tasks that I have not been able to complete.
Similarly I feel the need to have a list of things that I can do every time I finish a task before time and have some time to spare. Sometimes I am at a loss of things to do despite having so much to do!
A bit of a pickle!

My challenge lies in balancing my job routine along with a healthy pregnancy. Taking meals on time, drinking lot of water, moving around in office. So the list is endless and sticky notes on my computer sometimes fall away. 🙂

My greatest challenge is to manage everything together, home, job, kid. I loose track. At office also I need to do so many tasks simultaneously, as i am working on different projects simultaneously, so sometime there is a need to list down thing with end date etc.

I am an English language trainer who takes classes ranging from a foundation course in English to intermediate courses in Communication. I find it challenging to keep a track of my classes with respect to the curriculum planned or the syllabus covered or the kind of activities done in the class and recording the performance of each participant ( progress made – both in written and spoken English). It would also enable me to schedule evaluation tasks/tests at regular intervals.
So if i have a planner such as yours, it would help me to organise my classes better and not get mixed up with the activities planned for the session/month for a particular class. It will also help me to customise my lessons for each student by keeping a detailed record of their strengths and weaknesses. Sometimes i give some written task or some research work to be done at home and later on forget to collect it from the participants. Hopefully, the planner will help me to keep my learners on their toes by having a written record of the work to be collected from them, everytime i start the class.
On a lighter note, its always nice to recall and wish people on their birthdays/anniversaries if you are not good at remembering dates! 😉
My Productivity challenge is planning. I have fallen short of planning my entire week and my month. If I plan well, I am sure I would meet many of my goals. Right now, everything is in my head. With a young child, a blog, a craft (time consuming) business, I just get by with the important milestones. I do have a diary where I jot down everything but, I think a neat planner would help me segregate the tasks and schedule my time for family and for business. This is a lovely giveaway. I was wondering about planners as 2015 is right around the corner. I am planning to take a break and just do that one thing that I seem to elude each time- PLAN! And I hope that it all works out for me in 2015.

Hey Pratibha, congrats on 3 years of blogging and thanks for organizing this wonderful giveaway!
This planner would help me make a detailed time table for studying for my post graduation entrance test and take out some time for blogging as well and would help me remember tasks to complete which I many a times forget!
Would lovvve to have this planner and it is just on time! With a baby on tow, house keeping and cooking, weeks just run by. Jotting down my goals and planning my tasks for the week will sure get me organized.
Lovely planner, I would like to have a planner like this. My greatest productivity challenge is creating a time plan for all tasks and follow it. Happy planning for 2015 Pratibha:)

This is quite a different Giveaway… I started some months back and love it but there are some things that I have to do in my professional life for a better career and currently I am not able to manage the two. I need to have a proper planner in hand, where I can jot down the activities and concentrate on the daily tasks. This is help me restore the lost mental peace. This planner is really gonna help me, put everything in one place. I am still a book and pen person, so no matter ho many notes I make in my phone, it doesn’t help me., This one would. 🙂
