Create a practical tool that will get used everyday
I must look good and feel good to use
Should be a bit fun and still feel simple and practical
I welcome your ideas
This tool with be a spiral bound pad with each page designed to inspire reelection and help prepare for a successful day tomorrow.
The pad is intended to be used at the end of each work day and reviewed the next morning.
Reflect and Plan (is Reflect and React better?)
Each page contains two sections "reflect" and "plan".
Reflect has two parts "Personal" and "Team".
Personal is a scale from Reactive (on the left) to Focused (on the right).
Team is a scale from Dramatic (on the left) to Accountable (on the right).
I envision illustrations for the points on these scales ( reactive = pulling out hair; focus = flow state/ready/zen; dramatic = hair on fire; accountable = megaphone, posting a score, or something similar).
Plan has a heading of "Tomorrow's Focus" and has three to five numbered lines, each with enough space to write out a clear priorate for tomorrow
There space to write in the date as well
The finished pad will be spiral bound in portrait orientation with the spiral binding at the top so it can lay flat exposing the current day only. The design must allow margins for printing and for the spiral coil at the top.
The cover will be heavier stock and have a nice illustration. Maybe the "hair on fire" figure inside a red/slash circle like on a no smoking sign.
Each page has the tagline "realize your greatness".
The back cover has my branding and a message about how to use the pad and a request for feedback.
I'm open to interesting design ideas.
I want the pad to be seductive and to be used habitually.
Please post any questions you have. I've included company branding specifications as an attachment, but don't require them for this project. The may be useful for the back cover.
Final size will be 4" wide by 6" tall.
Instructions (for back cover):
----- USE DAILY ------
This tool is designed to help you improve your business without requiring much of your time. It works by helping you notice your progress and by focusing your attention
At End of Day: reflect on the day and mark your personal and team effectiveness on a five point scale. Then record your most important priorities for tomorrow.
At Start of Day: View your priorities and visualize attaining them or making tangible progress today.
During the Day: Keep today's page/priorities in your line of sight
No text in the top or design elements (other than solid background color) in the top 1/2", the left 1/4", the right 1/4" or the bottom 1/4". The extra space at the top is needed to accommodate the spiral binding.
There is a option for silver or black wire binding. If your design would work better with silver or black, please note your suggestion in a message.
