I have long been a fan of Franklin Planners and Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. It was exciting to see these brands/disciplines brought together under the FranklinCovey (FC) banner in 1997. Since coming together, FC has added many new products, seminars and consulting offerings.
Where I have long felt the company deficient, was in the tech/software arena. While FC has certainly tried to make the jump to digital planning and life management, their success has been lackluster when compared to past accomplishments. It is time for Franklin’s planning/GTD (Getting Things Done) know-how, Covey’s understanding of life/business governing principles and Apple’s legendary ease-of-use penchant to come together. It is time for my dream planner, FranklinCovey on iPad.
So what do you say, FranklinCovey? Are you ready to combine my aging favorite planner, my mentor of life principles (he just doesn’t know it) and the latest rule-breaker from Apple? This inquiring mind would like to know.
iPad – I love it when a planner comes together
