The Full Focus Planner helps you take control of your day and start living the life you desire. Built on the science-backed Full Focus System, each page is intentionally designed to increase your focus, eliminate overwhelm, and accelerate your goal achievement. And it's not limited to professional growth. You're encouraged to consider all life domains, including self-care exercises that serve as necessary reminders for any achiever who struggles to unplug from work. The Full Focus Planner helps you achieve more by doing less: to win at work and succeed in life.
Nozbe is a task, project, and time management application to help you get things organised, prioritised, and finally ticked off your list! This is the app I use as my external brain, and I could not live without it. You can grab a free Nozbe Personal account with the limit of 5 active projects by signing up for a Nozbe Personal trial and, once it ends, switch to the free account.
Growth Day is the world's first all-in-one personal development software. Get all the personal growth tools for mindset, journaling, habit tracking, goal setting, group conversations, courses, online challenges, and LIVE classes and courses from legendary expert motivational speakers - all in one app! GrowthDay is my best recommendation if, like me, you want to make self-improvement a way of life.
If you struggle with following through on the ever-present advice to write down three things you're grateful for every day, then The Five-Minute Journal is for you. Using the science of positive psychology to improve happiness, The Five-Minute Journal is a simple, quick, and effective tool to focus your attention on the good in your life: a great way to start and end your day. For me, the secret sauce of this journal is the question: What would make today great? This has the power to focus your thoughts on how to make the best of even the hardest of days.
Mel's mantra is: Changing your life is simple (but not easy). She helps people to change their habits to become happier, more confident and more fulfilled in every aspect of life. As well as being one of the coaches on Growth Day (see above), Mel has created many courses, books and audio teachings to demonstrate the simple things we can all do to lower our stress, get a better night's sleep, stay motivated, carve out the right balance, and overcome imposter syndrome. She is an all-around legend in the personal growth space. Follow her on Instagram, or check out her books, journals and audiobooks.
The Lead to Win Podcast is my favourite listen for weekly leadership lessons for lasting success. Subscribe for actionable insights to help you win at work, succeed in life, and lead with confidence. Recent episodes include The Midyear Goal Rescue Plan (to get you back on track), The Intentional Path to Work-Life Balance (because high-achievers have a bad habit of working too much), and Get the Feedback You Need to Grow (inspired by the work of Kim Scott and her book, Radical Candor). This podcast never fails to deliver practical and insightful advice on becoming the leader you've always aspired to be.
