The Wonder Year
Yesterday I came across the Wonder Year diary/notebook from Studio Beige that I discovered via AisleOne. It not only looks beautiful but also contains quotes, small tasks and food for thought that help you to imagine the future of the world (a task you could probably use some help with). There are only 5 copies of the diary/notebook left and they’ll probably give them away using a Facebook contest, so be quick!

I liked the idea of having a diary or planner that supports your creative thinking and I looked for a couple of other examples to show you.
The Non-Planner Datebook
Keri Smith created the non-planner datebook as an antidote to our urge to plan and control our work. The book encourages you to capture ideas when they come and to explore the unknown.

The Chronodex planner helps you to look at your day differently as it encourages you to write down your plans in a circle rather than in a list. It provides spaces for notes & ideas around your time circle as well. You can print them and put them into a notebook to create your own daily planner.

Moleskine Notebook Transformation
If you would like to create your own planner you might enjoy this tutorial by Kyla Roma. She explains how to create a weekly planner with monthy pages for things such as ‘dreamstorming’ based on a simple Moleskine Notebook.
Are there any other planners that support a creative attitude to work that you know of? I’d love to hear about them!
