What is a personal growth planner?
A personal growth planner helps you evaluate your current life, create a vision for what you want your life to look like, set goals, and track your progress.
This "new vision for myself" digital phone planner includes 58 hyperlinked pages with tabs for:
- "Me 1.0" (current life evaluation)
- Challenges (where you record any challenges that come up along the way
The pages include habit trackers, wheel of life pages, daily goals, weekly goals, monthly goals, a bucket list, and so much more. Instead of boring you with dozens of bullet points, I invite you to take a look at the index page for the planner:

Digital planning isn't difficult, but there are a couple of steps to get your planner onto your tablet.
You will need:
- A compatible smartphone
- A stylus, optional (such as the Apple Pencil)
- A planning App. Goodnotes and Noteshelf are the most popular
- Your digital planner!
How to import a digital planner into Goodnotes
- After downloading the PDF file, the planner will open in the Safari browser of your Iphone.
- Click on the Share button on the top right corner.
- You might have to scroll and select copy to Goodnotes.
- In Goodnotes, choose a location and click the import as a new document button.
How to use the Goodnotes app
Sometimes people have trouble and aren't able to get the hyperlinked tabs to click when they use Goodnotes.
How to use hyperlinked tabs in Goodnotes
- For the tabs to work, you need to be in the Read-Only Mode in Goodnotes. You should see an icon of a pencil with a line through it.
- This mode lets you navigate through your pages easily.
- All other inputs, like the pen/stylus, are blocked when this mode is active.
How to write on your digital panner in Goodnotes
- To be able to write on your planner, you need to deselect the Read-Only Mode in Goodnotes. You should see an icon that looks like a pencil drawing a loop.
- You can use the writing tools like the pen and highlighter in this mode.
