  1. Enjoyed the \”Helpful Refresher\” notes. It\’s been a while since I\’ve used my Franklin Planner, so now it\’s time for me to get back into my routine of using my planner again.

    P.S. I appreaciate all the other accessories that you can purchase for your planner.

  2. I am trying to print this out – it looks like it is 4 pages – yet only 1 page prints, believe there is something wrong..

    Please correct..

  3. So glad I saw this on your website. I had been trying to use my own \”method\”, which has been confusing me more than helping. Now that I\’ve read this, I\’m going to try it! Seems like it may work a lot better.

  4. The hardest part of having a planner is the values clarification. Covey used to have excellent resources to help but they are basically impossible to find. I have even tried other resources but no real success. Am I looking in the wrong places or do you have other resources that you can recommend? I had even looked into the counseling that you used to offer (even though I don\’t really have the funds for it). I\’m sure I\’m not the only one looking for this type of help.

    1. I am looking for a complete video on how to use the forms and setting up your planner.
      You used to have live classes on this but I had to travel to attend. There are videos from other people but I find they don’t know how to use the planner correctly. You can’t sell your planners or system without giving the public information. I realize that you only care about corporations, but the rest of us would like to learn too.

  5. I wish you would carry more Classic binders that have .75 rings. I now use a weekly planner and a lot of the binders are too big; geared for the daily.
    Thanks.

  6. I find that the Classic size, zipper closing binder works best for but it doesn’t accommodate daily planning sheets. What suggestions can you offer? Also, I like Jan-Dec planners for personal.financial & business planning but need July-June planners for church & volunteer scheduling/planning.
