METIS Planner 2017-2018

The METIS Planner is a planning system that allows busy students to uniquely plan, allocate time, and reflect on everything they have to do!

 

The METIS Planner is a comprehensive printed academic planner that allows you to organize your schedule and all of your to do's.  Uniquely designed pages allow you to plan by week, plan by month and plan by semester. Additional sections and optional downloads make the METIS Planner a complete planning system for all students!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your METIS Planner is also a place to reflect and to dream. The printed METIS Planner also includes:

  • Special Occasions Planner 
  • Concept/Ideas 
  • BIG To Do’s 
  • Little To Do’s 
  • Vision Board 
  • Three Year Planning View 

 

With each METIS planner purchase, you will also get access to a comprehensive set of supplemental downloadable content that you can print and utilize to customize your planning system to fit your individual needs. Supplemental downloads include the following categories:

  • Academic Helpers 
  • Financial Helpers 
  • Internship and Job Helpers 
  • Goal Trackers 
  • Life’s Little Helpers 
  • 4-Year Undergrad Course Schedule Planning Tools 
  • Grad School Planning Tools

See FAQ’s for a complete list and description of the more than 30 current supplemental downloadables.

 

With the METIS Planner, you can check it’s done or check to schedule any task - you will never lose track of what you need to do. 

     Doesn’t checking something off just feel so satisfying?                                                We think so too!

Keep track of what you need to do in the appropriate semester, monthly, or weekly to do lists. Then, either complete the task and check off that it’s done or allocate time to work on the task in your weekly schedule that has an integrated to-do tracking system. Either way, the METIS Planner will help you find the time to do what you need to do!

 

 

 

Metis was the Greek Goddess of wisdom, planning, advice, and deep thought. She was married to Zeus, and that, of course, led to her share of “Greek” drama in her life. But she did what she needed to do. And she got it done on time, in accordance with her schedule and based on her plan.

Help spread the word on your favorite social media site by sharing a link to this kickstarter page.  

Then from any Google/gmail account, email a screen shot to metisplanner@gmail.com and we’ll reply to your email with a link for the full digital print at home copy of the 2017-2018 METIS planner. (If you don't have a Google/gmail account, you can get one for free at https://accounts.google.com/signup.)  

Free is nice, but of course we’d love for you to financially support this Kickstarter campaign and receive a beautifully printed 2017-2018 METIS Planner and have full access to all the supplemental downloads – and if you can do that, please support our campaign. But if you can’t, we understand and are so confident that the METIS Planner will help any student, we want to make sure it’s available to as many students as possible.

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Last year we successfully launched the 2016-2017 METIS planner through Kickstarter. That experience validated our ability to deal with design, production, fulfillment, and on-going customer support. We are confident that we have the capacity to scale for additional success with this year’s Kickstarter campaign for the 2017-2018 METIS Planner.

We are modifying our binding to utilize a spiral format and we have thoroughly tested our design and have already completed a small production run with our selected vendor.

Our goal will be to get the planner out to our backers as soon as possible. We know we can optimize our logistics by preparing shipping material while our planner is still in production. As such we ask that all of our backers respond to the information survey as quickly as possible after this Kickstarter ends so we can get your planner to you as quickly as possible. But please understand that unforeseen setbacks may arise in terms of manufacturing and shipping.

For supplemental downloadable content, we will require all users to register a gmail address. This restriction simplifies our website design and, for now, allows us to focus on creating the best planner possible and not invest in an overly complex web site and avoids having to manage any password or security credentials.
