Say hello to the ultimate productivity guide! Jordan Page has created a step-by-step guide to getting more done while enjoying more free time.
If you're here, that means you're ready to say “BUH-BYE” to that state of overwhelm and get organized, tackle your to-do's, and CONQUER YOUR DAY. You're about to become a productivity ninja! Let's get started!!
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
This is not your typical planner! With our innovative Block Schedule System you will stop living hour by hour, and now organize your day block by block. Think of it like your high school class schedule. But instead of MATH, SCIENCE, SOCCER PRACTICE, or HOMEWORK TIME, you have a WORK BLOCK, DINNER BLOCK, ERRANDS, or FAMILY TIME BLOCK.
You assign appropriate tasks (to-do’s) to the appropriate blocks, ensuring you not only stay organized and prioritized throughout the day, but you eliminate overwhelm by knowing that every to-do has its place!
Blocking your time is what allowed you to get so much done and juggle so much back in high school…so why couldn’t it work now? Hint: it can! This unique planner will not only teach you how, but will allow you to accomplish more, WITHOUT the overwhelm! It has transformed tens of thousands of lives…we can’t wait for it to transform yours too!
HOW IT WORKS
This planner is designed to help you make the absolute best use of the block system! It's not just about your schedule—it's about getting things done.
STEP 1: DEFINE YOUR BLOCKS
Check out the example block schedules in your Productivity Planner. We highlight the potential blocks of a Stay At Home Mom and a 9-5 Working Mom. We know that there are so many different situations, so draw from these examples what you can and think about what will work for YOU.
Start by giving each block a name and time-frame. Pro-Tip: Keep in mind, 1 hour is too short, 4+ hours is too long. The sweet spot is about 3-hour blocks!
Now brainstorm common tasks that you would like to accomplish in each block. Tasks will likely change slightly from one day to the next. This does not need to be comprehensive, but just give you an idea of how you will organize your day!
STEP 2: SET UP YOUR PLANNER
To keep you organized, we highly recommend you add tabs to your planner. Tabs will help you jump back and forth from your weekly to-do's and your daily blocks (and totally increase your productivity)! Here are my absolute favorites to keep me organized:
*Note: When you click the links in this post, we may receive a commission at no extra cost to you.
- Monthly Tabs – Add these to your Month At A Glance pages in your planner so you can easily find the month you're looking for!!
- Holographic Tabs – These sturdy tabs add a gorgeous shimmer and sparkle to your planner!
- Metallic Tabs – Versatile, writeable, repositionable tabs… these are awesome.
- Geometric Tabs – If you want some little mini tabs to mark your weekly planning or even each week, these are small and cute to boot!
In addition to tabs, I also use a magnetic bookmark to keep track of my daily blocks! This helps you jump right to it instead of flipping through pages. Here are my favorites:
- Marbled Bookmarks – These are stunning and help you flip right to your daily blocks.
- Bright Arrow Bookmarks – Small and bright, these could be used instead of tabs to help you mark monthly calendars or weekly to-do's.
- Floral Bookmarks – So many beautiful options in this set.
- Assorted Long Bookmarks – Love the fun designs and the minimalistic vibe of these long skinny magnetic bookmarks.
STEP 3: START PLANNING
Once your planner is organized, you're ready to start planning… ready, set, go!!
Use your Month At A Glance page to help you keep track of big dates and events throughout the month. Customize your Monthly Tracker with your personal goals that you hope to accomplish each day!
Each week, take a minute to brain-dump your to-do's on the weekly to-do list, keep a running list of tasks as they come up and add them to the appropriate daily blocks throughout your week. Cross them off as they are completed. If you have any to-do's leftover at the end of the week that still need to be completed, move them to next week's list, and repeat!
We've added a handy weekly meal planning sheet to help you plan out what you will feed your family throughout the week!
Each day, grab items from your to-do list and calendar. Plug them into the appropriate blocks for that day. Knock things out as you come to each block, then enjoy crossing them off your to-do list. Feels so good! Pro-Tip: Use alarms and timers on your phone to help you keep on task throughout the day and make the most of each block!
Each night, complete your nightly checklist to prepare for the next day! Putting in the time to prep for the next day is what propels you towards excess. Pro-Tip: Don't forget to add a little me-time to your checklist!
Now you can enjoy sleeping like a baby, knowing you have CONQUERED your day!

PRODUCTIVITY PLANNER FAQ
Can I begin using the Productivity Planner at any time, or do I need to wait for the first of the month?
You can start any time! Start filling out the planner for your current month. You'll want to stay on track once you get started, but you can start at any point in the year.
Do I have to follow Budget Boot Camp or Productivity Boot Camp in order to use the planners?
Definitely not! The Budget Planner and Productivity Planner make the ultimate companions to our Boot Camp programs, but it is not necessary that you have both a planner and program to be successful.
Will there be other cover design options made available in the future?
Yes we’re planning on it! Make sure to stay tuned to our email newsletter for the latest product announcements.
Will there be a 12-month version of the Productivity Planner?
We have looked very closely at this possibility. As of right now, the sheer massive size of such a book is a major challenge from a manufacturing standpoint. We want the planner to be something you can use, and not look like a dictionary! But we promise to keep it in mind for the future.
When does The Budget Planner begin shipping?
The Budget Planner is available for pre-order only at this time. We estimate that they will begin shipping in early February.
When will The Budget Planner and the Productivity Planner be re-stocked?
All three planners are currently sold out, but we hope to be re-stocking by early February. Be sure you're signed up for our newsletter to stay in the loop with the latest! You can also sign up to receive text messages by texting FCFTEXT to 833-520-0668.
I have an idea for how to improve the planner. Where can I share it?
