Self-Help Guide

Maria is a fantastic writer with a 20 years of experience as a psychotherapist, coach, and corporate consultant. She has helped many people over the years. Her valuable experience helping others has led her to develop her success concepts called “7 Steps to Simplicity.” These concepts are brought to life at the beginning of each month in the planner.

  • Finding time for the people and activities that are most important to us.

Each month has a fresh take on her “7 Steps to Simplicity” which will open your mind to how you can create a better life in an ongoing way all year long. These prompts are sure to make a positive difference in how you live your life.

Simply Put Together Self Help Planner Organizer


Simply Put Together” has a full 2009 calendar planning broken down for Monthly, Weekly and Daily planning. The monthly calendar allows you to see the big picture and it includes reminders of that particular month’s guide to simplicity. Each month has different prompts for simplicity that will add massive value to your life!

The weekly and daily planning section includes both a place for scheduling appointments and tasks, but also a section for making the one of the 7 Simplicity Steps come to life that day. This is called “Journaling with Intention-Quick Look.” There is a different helpful prompt for each day so you don’t have to remember each step. It’s all done for you!

There’s also sections for notes, important reference information for that month, and a weekly inspiring quote.

Goal Tender

This section allows you to specify goals and the elements that will help you reach them. It includes determining what you really want, identifying supportive people, creating supportive affirmations, and outlining the path you will take. Again the big benefit of this is the fact that you have these written down in the same place where you go to organize your life every day. It makes it so you can’t forget or ignore your goals. It facilitates you reaching your goals!


In one centralized place you also have a section for Contacts, Special Projects, Birthdays & Anniversaries, and a Daily Organizer for both Home and Office. The Daily Organizer section is a powerful tool for organizing your tasks.

  • The Home Organizer is broken down into Chores, Contacts, Wellness, Errands, and Other.
  • The Office Organizer is broken down into Ongoing Tasks, Contacts, Monster List, Push It (Career Progress), and Other.

Maria suggests a great strategy for managing all your tasks by assigning them to certain days of the week. This makes forgetting tasks less likely as once you have a routine in place it will become automatic.
