    I received my anti-planner this week and I wanted to tell you how the message at the beginning of the book where you talked about “the thing” made something click.
    As a ADHDmirable human, I realize I have a strong nurturing sense. So, when I saw the little orange post-it, I felt a strong desire to care for him.
    Since then, I did tasks I had postponed for months. I even wrote a chore on a post-it and when I finished, I kissed the paper before sending it to the bin.
    I don’t know if this mindset will stick long but right now, it seems to work.

    Thank you

    I love it! It’s kind of a fun way to deal with non so fun problem.

    The anti-planner has it all: emotional support – check, fun dopamine producing ways to hopefully refocus my attention onto my tasks – check, serious reflections on what is holding me back – check… and it’s been a great gift too! I’m still discovering new methods to aide me in my quest for focus even when all of those different types of journals and calendars are gathering dust. Thanks Dani!

    I bought a copy of the Anti-Planner in the second round of preorders (at least, I think it was then; time is fuzzy). It lives on my living room side table between my dictionary and The Book of Unusual Knowledge. It has left the table, though: I’ve brought it back and forth to work with me. It’s helped a lot when I needed to gameify a project or to-do list at work that I was dreading. Sometimes, I just flip through it before getting to work on chores around the house. Even if I don’t use a strategy from the book, it’s a sort of clue to my brain that it’s time to be productive. I’ve played chores battleship with my husband via text while he’s at work, which is super fun! Best of all, it helps me to know that I’m not alone. Thank you for putting this together, Dani! I’m proud of you for getting sh*t done and writing your book!

    This is the only planner that has ever worked for me. It snuck up on me; I didn’t think it would stick, but the sections correspond so well to what I go through that I find myself coming back to them if only to confirm that what I’m feeling is real and shared. The variety of page styles and activity formats and illustrations make this book so dynamic and interesting to flip through. Also I have wept in solidarity and relief and comfort and devastation while clutching this book to my chest on countless occasions because of how apt and relatable the descriptions are. This anti-planner has decontextualized how I think and feel about myself and has unquestionably changed my life for the better. Would recommend to any neurodivergent in my life, and at least 1/3 of the neurotypicals because burnout comes for us all:(
