As the creator of the Whisper Playbook productivity system, I know how important it is to have the greatest tools.
Last year I purchased Danielle La Porte’s weekly planner and I’m still using it. It worked perfectly with the Playbook’s 21-day sprints and Bounce Time.
Now, the important thing is to get clear about how you create (see creator codes quiz) AND know what planner would work best for you (see below.)

And Your Perfect Planner is…
The Daily Planner! You and your planner are in LOVE. You write down everything — from ideas to appointments — and you have plenty of appointments to schedule. You have to be super organized.
The Weekly Planner! You like planning out your days, but prefer a high level view. Your planner is your guidance system, not your ball n’ chain – thank goodness!
The Undated Journal! This is what you’ll find in the Whisper Playbook! If you aren’t attached to a physical calendar with dates, why not try the Whisper Playbook System. (Here’s where you can purchase the Playbook System and receive an offer for the physical journal.)
