I bought the Rotezen book in addition to the Shift on impulse, and am so glad I did. It’s a 3-month motivational planner with a ton of flexibility- for example, it states early on that progress is not linear and it’s ok to skip a day or a month, just pick up where you left off. I tend to go all-in on new habits and get discouraged when I fall off, so that opening gave me a ton of confidence and openness. I love that the planner makes you consider your intentions for the day, as well as reflection and reviewing at the end of the day. It’s helping me organize and focus my life, and am interested to see how it’s going 2 months from now.
The book is beautiful- very minimal, very pleasing. Only complaint is it doesn’t have a ribbon for book marking, and it doesn’t fall/stay open in my lap like I’d prefer- takes some holding down the books pages on each side to keep it open to a specific page, which is a little bothersome when writing in sections close to the inside binding seam. I also think including a pen and a way to attach the pen to the book (perhaps a pen slot?) would add to the functionality and enjoyment.
Overall though, Rotezen is worlds better than most motivational books or planners. It’s non-specific to any one goal or plan- very open-ended and applicable to any changes you’d like to make methodically over time.
Its a great, structured resource to keep you consistent and on the ball. I'm only a handful of days in, missed a day, but thats OK because I'll pick back up where I left off. Every incremental step I take with Rotezen, brings me closer to achieving my goals.
