Curious to see inside the Rocketbook Panda Planner? I’ve been using it for several weeks now, and I’m impressed with the layout, the goal-setting process and how easy it is to use.

My Review of the Rocketbook Panda Planner
I don’t know about you, but I am obsessed with planner systems and apparently my clients are too because for whatever reason, they all seem to be looking for this magical system that’s going to take away all the overwhelming chaos.
And I always hate to burst their bubble, but that’s just not the case. There’s not a planner system on this planet that’s going to help you resolve your overwhelming chaos until you stop over committing yourself. In reality, a planner can only help you plan the time that you have. But if you’re constantly overextending yourself, and giving your time away, then you literally have no time left in your day to actually plan.
Now with that said, a good planner can help you really map out what’s important, what you need to get done, and how much time you have to do it. That’s why today I am reviewing the Panda Planner by Rocketbook.
BTW, this post is not sponsored, but it would really nice if it was!
I love the way this planner takes you through a 90 day process of breaking down what you want outta life, what’s most important, prioritizing it that way, and then breaking it down step by step, week over week. I found this incredibly helpful, and also their weekly and daily layouts just for day to day.
Panda Planner Meets Rocketbook
Panda Planner is a system designed by Michael Leip. Rocketbook, is a special notebook that is completely erase-able and reusable (when you use this specific pen). So when I refer to the Panda Planner, please know that it’s a standalone brand that also has regular paper planners.
Panda Planner also did a collaboration with the VIA Character Strengths, so I’m excited to explore that version as well, since you know I’m obsessed with strengths-based coaching, especially for ADHDers.
My Panda Planner Tour
Here’s the rundown of the planner. If you want a full tour, please refer to the video and podcast above where I go into detail on how it helped me plan my last 90 Days of 2022.
First page – Year spread, ideal for noting key holidays and events
Next three pages are individual, undated full month spreads. Ideal for planning at the 30 day level.
The next several pages are dedicated to a goal planning process that I cannot say enough good things about. As a certified coach, and an ADHDer who has a hard time envisioning goals and breaking them down into actionable steps – this process was impactful and simple to follow. It was also straight to the point with zero fluff.
Once your goals are set, there’s a page dedicated to mapping out milestones week by week.
From there, you have 4 full week spreads and 14 day spreads so you can plan out weeks in advance, and then just erase and redo as time goes on.
One of the great features of the rocket book is the ability to scan and upload pages to wherever you want, using their handy little app.
Overall, I love the layout of this planner, I love that it’s so light and very toteable and I’m really loving that I can literally wipe off any errors I make (since my handwriting is worse than a 3rd grader’s).
Who else is planner obsessed out there? Are you loyal to a specific design or do you like to mix it up?
