The variety of methods at X47.


How do I manage myself? How do I organise myself? How do I achieve my goals? How do I make the most of my life? You can read a lot on this topic, and in the end you have to put your insights into practice. Paper and pen are excellent tools for this. A book made of beautiful leather can become a daily companion.

X47’s book-by-book technique – we use booklets instead of individual sheets – is ideal for this purpose. Compact booklets, bookmark cards, folding planners – a great combination.

X47 is open to all methods. The different methods are presented here. If you need assistance – don’t be afraid to call! We want you to find the best method for you.

The second part is the “Mindful Daily Planning”, a neutral daily calendar in which you write down your tasks from the goal-setting booklet and are also reminded daily to focus your attention on your joy and gratitude.

The booklet “Goals and Implementation” and the “Mindful Daily Planning” can be found in section booklets. under the keyword “Mindfulnessence Goals”, “Mindfulnessence “Daily Planning”.

In addition, there are guided notes and a calendar-neutral planning tool.
