MiGoals Focus Pads ($9.05 US) are 50 sheet pads of cream colored 100gsm paper that is divided into four quadrants. The pads are about 7.5×9.5″ (190mm x 245mm) which fit comfortably next to your laptop or tablet computer. They are listed as B5 sized… some of the ISO sizes leave me a little befuddled. Suffice it to say its a pleasing size. It’s smaller than A4/Letter but a little larger than an A5/Half-sheet.
The tearaway sheets can be tucked into your planner or notebook making it adaptable to other systems.
The paper is a little bit toothy but not scratchy and pretty fountain pen friendly.
The quadrants provide areas for a To Do list, Schedule, Delegate and “Don’t Do”. Someone on the MiGoals site suggested that the last quadrant be turned into a follow-up section which I think is a much better use of the space. Or leave it blank for doodles, perforated shopping list or other note?
I certainly like that this tablet feels less precious than some of the fancy planners I’ve reviewed. It just has nice paper in a usable form. It’s aesthetically appealing but looks like something I want to use and then recycle. Or I can draw on the back when I’ve used the front. I can just get the most mileage out of the paper and move on. I do not feel obligated to archive it on a shelf for all eternity. How nice is that?
Thankfully, most of the pens I tested didn’t bleed through so I really can use the back of the paper for doodles.
