I'm a bit tardy to the party with this post. I recently replaced my unsightly plastic academic diary (the kind that start in September and end in August) with a slightly more age appropriate diary from Mi Goals, an Australian company.
"Mi Goals is a lifestyle brand.. founded in 2010.... starting with a simple goal to create all in one diary that allows you to write, track and achieve your goals all the while staying organised"*
It's fairly plain in design, but anyone who knows me, knows I'm a sucker for motivational quotes and pretty typography, which was what convinced me to get this diary in the end. My only wish is that they had colours other than black (white isn't even an option for a girl as clumsy as me)!
These diaries are really cool in the sense that they allow you a handy space to write down your goals for each week. In all honesty though, I haven't used the "main" goals pages, I'm more a fan of the weekly habits and goals slot at the bottom of each week plan, and the fact that I'm able to tick off each day (see picture above). Overall I'm happy with the layout and have made good use of it so far. The price is slightly steeper than what I'm used to in a diary, so I wouldn't recommend it if you don't use your diary often, but if like me you use your diary all the time, go for it!
So what diary did you get for 2013? Do tell!
