Project Action Pad
Ever set a project that’s so intimidating you don’t know where to start? If so, you’re not alone. Deciding how to close the gap on a stretching goal is a common problem for big thinkers. It’s why we developed the Project Action Pad.
Capture your master to-do list with due dates, and project delivery becomes easy. With a clear plan, you won’t forget critical tasks, while deadlines help you prioritize and schedule time to stay on track. You’ll have clarity over your next steps too ensuring you take timely action. It’s how the Project Action Pad equals fewer distractions, more organization, and increased project confidence.
So get ready to swap indecision for clarity and tackle your next project with ease. Whether you’re planning a party, launching a business, or writing a book, this versatile tool will inspire you to think bigger and achieve more.
1. Project name
Make it easy to distinguish one project plan from another.
2. Outcome goal
Pin down your desired outcome with your SMART project goal (that’s Specific, Measurable, Action-based, Realistic, and Time-bound).
Set a time frame to inspire implementation, promote prioritization, and fend off procrastination.
4. Action/Tasks and due dates
Deconstruct your project into its component parts to reduce overwhelm and make implementation easy. With this ‘external brain’ of every task, you’ll also free up bandwidth, promote focus, and cut indecision.
5. Track progress to your finish line
Use the checkboxes and progress bar to monitor your project, stay on track, and proactively manage delays.
6. Note spaces
One idea can change your life! Use the dot-grid note section to keep your inspired thoughts safe.

Exactly what I was looking for.
The layout is simple, yet effective. I use this form in addition to my electronic master project list. At a glance, I have to scope of my project on one easy to read and follow format.
For the average household or backyard project, this is great. Space for actions, materials, schedules and goals. Keeps you on target and reminds you if you’re not done yet.
Very often a company says they are one thing but are really something else. In this case, the company name truly reflects their desire to be their Best Self. I had submitted a prior review entitled "Damaged Goods". The problem was that I had ordered a number of items and they came to me damaged because of the padded envelope. I asked to have the Project and Weekly Action Pads to be resent. Those were also damaged again because of the padded envelope. I had contacted support after both shipments and had let them know about this issue.
I just got a surprise package. As you can see it was shipped in a box (with caution labels), there was plenty of packing materials, and a limited edition set of four journals (which I had not ordered but provided as a way to say, "we hear you"), and two completely pristine pads (One a Project Action Pad and the other a Weekly Action Pad).
Wow! Now that's a way to turn a problem into a very grateful and loyal customer. Way to go BestSelf!!!
I have been using the BestSelf journal from the prior order and it's really quite helpful. Thanks again BestSelf!!
