Game Changer: Barrel Racers  Tool4Wisdom Planner


I’m gonna tell you about an awesome find I stumbled upon several years ago that I honestly can’t live without! This is the Tool4Wisdom Planner. It really is a game changer. If you’re in the rodeo industry that automatically means you are BUSY. It also means you are a goal oriented person. You can’t achieve greatness with your horse unless you have a goal. Once you have the goal, you must have the PLAN! This planner will help you stay organized! I just got my new planner and I can’t tell you how helpful this tool is. I use this planner every single day. I love the covers too.


This planner is so nice because it has the month section and then day by day. On each week, it has a place for GOALS, NOTES and GRATITUDE. So, each week you can write down your weekly goals and what you are grateful for. It really helps me to manage my days while also putting things in to perspective. It also has a place for you to map out your monthly and yearly goals. It ask you about your professional and personal goals too.  It’s been hammered in to me for years that in order to achieve your goals you must WRITE THEM DOWN. It really is true. Girls (and guys) as you get ready to think about your goals for the upcoming year, remember write them down. There is something to actually putting the thought on paper. Trust me, it works!  I love this about the planner because it keeps your goals in front of you and it really makes you think about it.


It ask you “What goal am I trying to accomplish? Why is this important to me?” It is so important to fill out this section because it forces you to really look at why you are going to chose to the goals. Is it to have a successful rodeo season? Is it to lose weight? It is to move up from the 4D to the 3D? Whatever your goal is, really think on it, give it a go!

Like I mentioned before it gives you a place to put down your daily goals.  I LOVE daily goals. I think it’s in the daily goals, that makes you reach the big one!! What did you do every single day to achieve something? Make sure at the end of the day, you are working towards something! Nothing makes us feel more alive than achievement. Achieving something is a HUGE motivator. It doesn’t have to be something huge. For example, if you’re trying to lose weight, make a goal to eat a salad every day for a week. Write that down in the priority section for your day. You will feel great when you do that. Then make the same goal but for two weeks. You will be so amazed how well you feel about achieving something. This planner will help keep you on track.

This planner also breaks each day down by the hour. I love this! I can write down all my meetings, all my erands and my time to workout, ride my horses and my meals (I use this as a food journal as well). It really is all encompassing!

Now, I’m gonna tell you one thing I do every single Monday in my planner. When I get to my office on Monday morning, I get my planner opened for the week ahead and write down what I need to accomplish for the week. I want to go ahead and get that in my planner so I see it every day.


This is the 2017 planner, the 2018 has a bit of a different look but is still just as great!

One thing that is a bit of drawback about this planner is it is heavy. Its not a pocket planner, or a little planner that is going to fit in your purse. This is a bigger planner so it does make it a bit heavy. That is the only complaint I have. However, it fits in my laptop bag fine so it isn’t that big of a deal for me. Remember, this is a planner/goal book/journal all in one, not just an “agenda keeper” 🙂

Ok, that sums this up! I just wanted to let you know it’s a MUST HAVE before I start every year.  I’ve been writing in planners since I could write. Seriously! I have always loved planners. I’ve tried the expensive ones, the digital ones, the big ones, the little ones, the leather bound ones, etc… I’ve tried them all and this is by far my favorite! The new year is right around the corner and you want to be prepared! Starting the year off organized and ready is a great feeling!

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
