The Best Self journals offer the best balance of structure and freedom I've seen so far. There is enough pre-printed structure to keep you on track and enough free space to let your creativity flow. I bought one of the leather journal covers as well, and I absolutely love it. It is thick natural leather that will age beautifully as I replace the journal inside over and over.
I treated myself to this planner when my classes went online due to coronavirus. It is helping me keep track of everything way better than I was managing before. It is the perfect grad school planner and I will definitely reorder.
The purchase and shipping aspects went as planned. Smooth. Good packaging and resources around getting started. I feel enthusiastic about starting to implement as prescribed and recommended. More later.
