Weekly Action Pad
If you want to crush a big goal, effective planning is key. It’s why we created the Weekly Action Pad - so you can wave goodbye to busy weeks that don’t move the needle. This intelligent planning tool empowers you to optimize your week and perform at your best.
Instead of squandered time and putting out fires, you’ll design prioritized weeks of action. You’ll learn to leverage your energy, feel on top of your to-do list, and avoid overwhelm.
This tool has been our secret weapon for the last 2 years. It’s helped us craft powerful daily pages in our SELF Journal, and achieve big goals. Let’s discover what it can do for you.

I have spent A LOT (too much) time looking at planners. Originally, I stayed away from Best Self because I didn't think I would like the undated but I was wrong. I started working with a coach who uses it and focused on quarterly goals. I took a leap of faith and purchased the Self Journal and the Weekly Action Plan and I love them both. I make using the journal one of my daily habits which really forces me to engage with it daily. It helps me slow down, be more intentional and plan better. The Weekly Action Plan is my brain dump and allows me to see everything I need to do that week. I highly recommend both.
Pros - focus on quarterly goals, focus on gratitude, structure around weekly and daily planning, high quality paper, undated means you don't have a lot of wasted paper if you skip a day or two, 3 ribbons to hold your place
Cons - I wish there were some note pages after each week.
Really good products that help me organize my day, thoughts, efforts. Love them!
Sure, I could use a cheap yellow pad for this but the fact that I had to spend money for the Weekly Action Pad raises the chances that I will put it to good use. Sometimes it's just a matter of psychology. The act of shelling out some cash for this has psychologically added some accountability to the weekly planning thing ("I am not going to waste this but should use it instead").
Another excellent tool and it compliments the Project Action Pad. If you plan to use this and get the most out of it, you must be disciplined in planning and thinking through priorities. Follow this with consistent action and you will see the progress of your goals.
Before this product came to the market I used my own version of a weekly action plan. Now that Best Self has crafted this masterpiece, I will be using theirs. Quality of the paper is great and choice of layout and organization for the Weekly Action Pad is excellent. Several of my colleagues have shown interest in the Best Self products I am using because the tools are effetive.
Job well done Brest Self team!
I love this pad. It is quite expensive for something you could do yourself- make columns and label. However, it is a really nice product, well made and just feels better than the scrappy self- made pad.
