For years I bought planners thinking one of them would inspire me to prioritize and plan things, but by the end of the year it would be empty. That all changed with this planner! I got a bundle as gifts for my college-aged staff (who also loved it) and ended up with one extra. *sigh* I guess I'll try THIS planner...and I ended up falling in love! The sticker tabs so you can flip to the current month, and monthly check-in pages are genius, and the daily spaces are big enough to keep track of anything you want to keep an eye on: moods, weather, medications, whatever. Best of all: the clear plastic cover gives me the freedom to decorate while keeping the joyful yellow title cover pristine--I love using my stickers! I've kept this planner untainted by work nonsense (yes, I'm an adult with a grown-up job). A "personal" planner is exactly what I needed to love planners again. If the design stays this fun and perfect, I'll order one every year--and as gifts too.
I have a planner for work and “important” things, but I wanted another one to use as a sort of “how am I feeling” tracker. This is perfect for that! I love the realistic positivity (instead of the toxic kind) and the spaces to think about how my month went. I also appreciate the random holidays listed throughout, like National Food Truck Day. My only criticism(?) is that the months aren’t tabbed or separated out so you can easily flip to the current date/month. It’s not a huge deal—I just bought adhesive tabs and made my own month markers.
It's SO GOOD! The hand-drawn everything makes it so approachable and fun to use. It feels like a planner/art collaboration/comfy space all in one. I love the month in review sections, the stickers, the hopeful words to begin each month...I keep planning stuff so that I have a reason to spend more time scribbling in this planner. Adam, you did a great job. Thank you!
This is my second year buying an Adam JK planner because it's the only planner in my adult life I've ever stuck with. It's tastefully warm-fuzzy, the perfect no-pressure layout for the chaotic way I document birthdays, meetings, dates, etc., and I genuinely look forward to using it to plan my life and reflect on life. (This is also the closest I will ever come to keeping a journal, and I am so happy to admit that.)
Such a cute planner! I love the stickers and little prompts for each month. Love the work you’re doing ❤️❤️❤️
The agenda and stickers are awesome. I love love love all the details and personalization (even on the package!!). All the notes and mini pep talks are so on point. One thing that could be improved imho is the big white sticker with the description of the agenda on the back. I did not manage to remove it - i tried and the back would look sticky and not clean - and the agenda would look so much better without it. I would have either chosen an easier sticker to remove or not put it there at all.
Love the reminders to treat myself with respect! Happy Chocolate Mint Day! Lists are an important way to stay on track and to be organized.
I would have never guessed that I was a “planner” person, but I have gotten into the habit of using it a lot these past few weeks. Overall great quality — love the prompts and the stickers. My one one note is some of the stickers don’t stick very well (again, minor issue).
I got this as a gift for my sister and she is loving it already! She loves the stickers and the different holidays throughout as well as the the monthly check-ins. I think I’ve made a fan of her yet!
I love this planner. I get it every year and enjoy the comments, stickers, everything. The year may disappoint but the planner never has!
I just bought Adam’s YAHFN for myself and his TAWYMOT for my son; we’re adulting together, him on time, and me on *my* time. Imagine how excited I was to find the planner! Imagine: it anticipates the fears, the imposter syndrome, the anxiety future envisioning brings me and hand holds me through it, on each page! And there’s stickers!!!! ✌
Really love this planner! It’s fun and encouraging. My first time buying it, but I’m looking forward to this being a yearly purchase
I’ve been looking forward to getting it since he announced the release date. It didn’t not disappoint! Love every minute of it! Would love to have more sticker tho! Still love it anyways!
awesome planner! bright, encouraging, well-made, quick ship. thank yoj!
I'm really happy with this planner. Haven't used a physical planner in a while and I wanted it to keep a brief diary/journal. The amount of space per day is good and I love the hand-drawn nature. It prevents the paralysis of perfection. I also like knowing that I'm supporting an individual maker.
Something about the simplicity and practicality of this planner really invited me in! While, in the past I've been terrible at keeping up with using a planner, I already feel myself getting excited to sketch out my week and check in with my various appointments and goals. I also LOVE that it came with a pencil or two--a reminder that its okay to make mistakes, erase them, and begin again!
I'm really enjoying this planner so far! I like that it feels like a journal/planner combo - there are spaces for reflection and intentionality, which I'm trying to incorporate more into my daily life.
His words are powerful but warm! I want to use this journal to record my little lucky moments in my life!
This is the third year in a row that I get the "unsolicited advice planner and journal". I love it! It's wholesome, cute and 100% functional! I love it.
I've tried to live the planner life for some years now, always abandoning a few weeks in, but I think I've found the one I've been looking for. This planner SPEAKS to my soul! It's got a straightforward, non-intimidating layout that still leaves room for customization and the unsolicited advice/activities are top notch. 10 out of 10 recommend!
Love the planner with the extra to it’s and space for planning. The k my downside is the super sticky label on the back :( please change this as it’s been a mess to try and get off. Thanks!
I am really excited about using this journal and I love the page where I can reflect what I did last year by answering some questions to bring more clarity. Thank you ❤️
the whole philosophy that you’re only here in your journey *for now* as in it is not permanent and you are always moving forward not matter what that looks like and once i sat with it i just rlly connected with that. i feel like when i’ve gotten planners in the past i always tried to fit into a pinterest perfect mainstream but sometimes that just doesn’t work and that’s okay
Love this planner! This is my second year in a row having a planner from this collection. I love it, it keeps me grounded, and holds me accountable for self check ins. Couldn't ask for a better planner.
Planner is super cute, great journal prompts and sweet phrases throughout. I've been obsessively using it every day to keep my life from falling apart
I really love the cute stickers and the honest blurbs inside the planner. I've thought about buying this in the past and this is the first time I bought it and I'm glad I did. These are trying times and we need some positivity and the brutal truth and Adam JK provides that with some of his signature humor. AND I LOVE IT! <3
2021 was a weird year (for the world) and 2022 has already started off crazy for me! This planner is a reminder to be kind to myself and set some goals along the way. Cant wait to see what it has in store for me!!
I order a planner every year from you, my son usually tries to highjack it. But it's great fun for us both. We fill out the end of month prompts together and it's so fun to see his strange toddler answers evolve each year.
used it all the time!!! love that there were tabs for each month! this one is from last year and i loved it sm i bought it again this year <3
I love this unconventional journal/planner. I'm excited to get a little bit more creative with the mundane day to day. Already started on January 1st by setting up a couple goals. This will be something I'm using everyday.
I love the unsolicited advice provided by Adam, it feels more real than empowering quotes inserted in most planners/journals. I also love stickers!!!
A daily planner combined with a motivational journal... Genius!
Love my planner!! It has so many things in it that encourage me to actually stick with keeping a planner when I normally fail miserably. Can’t wait to use it more this year.
I used the 2021 edition every single day and will do the same with 2022 as well! Thanks for sharing your work with us! Absolutely love this! The sticker book is awesome too!
I already love this planner. Adam’s advice is so thoughtful and it’s something I’m already finding very valuable already.
i am very picky when it comes to planners, and this one has got to be one of my all time favorites. i just started using it but all of the areas for reflection and pick me up are great and it’s the perfect size.
I received this planner as a Christmas present from my youngest son. He gifted himself one also. We're going to encourage each other to use it as intended and take full advantage. So thank you! I like the planner so much. The "check in" and evaluation at the end of each month helps you stay on track. I like the size of it, the lettering. The nuggets of wisdom or fun throughout are great. The only thing. I would add is small tabs for the months. I hope to use your planner throughout the years and will definitely recommend my friends do likewise. Thank you again.
I just started using this planner, and I absolutely love it. I was so surprised that there are even stickers included in the back--totally brightened my day! I definitely will be using this as my yearly planner moving forward!
This planner is delightful! I had no idea that it's actually possible to have fun while being productive and organized!

Received the planner on 31 Dec 2021 after 2 weeks waiting for delivery. Yes i'm very very very happy with my purchase. Worth every second of waiting. Thank you so much. All the way from Malaysia :)
This planner is so lovely and sweet. It's the perfect size, well constructed, and the pages are thoughtful and fun. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is that the sticker on the back is almost impossible to remove. It's a personal preference, obviously, but it was the one thing I haven't liked. Love this planner!
This is my 3rd year in a row buying this planner. It’s essential at this point in my life. Also USPS lost my planner somehow so I contacted Adam and he happily gave me a replacement and was full of good vibes. Couldn’t recommend this planner more ✨✌️
Such a fun and interesting planner. Lovely work!
I've saved this in the "WANT!" folder for a few months before I asked Santa to bring it in 2021. I was so excited when it arrived at my door right as I was leaving for the airport for a two weeks trip. The planner is positive, unpretentious, funny, and reminds me to chill whenever I feel like I don't have things as well planned as I thought (which is almost always), but that is ok. I also got the book and I love Adam's work all around! Quirky and thoughtful.
I got the planner and I’m already beginning to love it. I tried not to peek through to future months too much but I can tell I love the structure of this way more than past planners. It’s also the perfect size
I cried and smiled looking through this when I got it. I can’t thank you enough for existing and for creating this. It feels like I have a friend supporting me through the whole planner/journal. I can feel the care exuding from it. And it’s lovely. I love that it’s more than just scheduling tasks and work and such, and the mental health, physical health, and other check-ins and activities make me want to use this planner more and look through it with less dread because of all the little additions. Thank you. This is my new favorite planner.
I saw you at Adobe Max a few years ago (in the before) and you are such an inspiration....thank you for my yearly planner that reminds me things truly are shockingly possible...keep up the good...
I love, love, LOVE my Unsolicited Advice planner! This is my second year purchasing one and my goodness, look at the packaging! I love how this year's is a bit slimmer, but with the same layout and fun beats throughout it. Thank you Adam!
I couldn't have whished for a better companion for this past year! It is awesome! Now a new year and a new daily planner is waiting. The old year is full of memories, feelings, inspirations, quotes... And as you can see, the old calendar is also thick and full of experiences! I felt accompanied by this planner and indeed not alone. You can tell the effort and passion Adam put in every single page.
It's my second year using the 'unsolicited advice planner & journal' - A freaking amazing tool that both keeps me on track organizing life maintenance, and offers valuable space for reflection 'n dreaming 'n healing. I love it and hype it up to folks often. Thank you, Adam!
Very excited to use this planner! Love three fun holidays and words of encouragement on every page. Helps me feel like an adult without making it too serious
It's the planner I've been wanting my whole life without even knowing it. Adam's stuff makes me happy. I bought the whole set, stickers and all and love every bit
My planner came damaged at first (probably through some shipping mishap), and Adam very kindly offered to send me a replacement free of charge. Love this planner so much, and the stickers are so, so cute.
I love this planner -- as someone who works a couple of months ahead for work and school, but needs to keep things simple, it really keeps things feeling light and achievable. Thanks AJK!
This cool “plan-al” ( planner/journal) is great if you want a shockingly great year!
What a joy— this actually feels like a planner I’ll use
It is a gift for my daughter and is already wrapped for Christmas. I am sure she will love it. It was on her wish list. She is an artist and love, love, loves to support other artists.
I am a sucker for journals and planners and cannot wait to use this one in the new year! I love all the pages for reflection and fun inspiring things to do or try. I also appreciate the pencils which force me to slow down and think before I write but also change up and try new things.
I’m so excited to use this planner! It’s the perfect size, and I love the aesthetic!
Cannot wait to use this next year! So thoughtfully designed and truly delightful. Can’t wait to dig in!
This is a Christmas present for my daughter-in-law, I know she will love it.
I love the planner! Excited for 2022 to start and put it to use.
This is a great product to help start each day with positive vibes!
Planner and journal in one. This is both a useful aswell as beautiful and motivating planner.
New year, new planner! I like the handwritten, imperfect approach to a new year! What a fun way to take care of myself and keep track of myself in 2022!
I bought this for my sister for Christmas (that’s why it’s wrapped in the pic ). I wanted to write a review to say how quickly the package arrived from Hawaii. I live in Melbourne Australia and it arrived before most of my shopping from Melbourne that was purchased online the same weekend! My only regret is that I didn’t buy one for myself at the same time. I will next year.
Fi and I are ready to reflect on 2021 and move forward in 2022. This planner is full of fun, interesting, introspective and artistic activities and prompts. I’m truly excited to use it.
The packaging made me smile and made this week so much nicer. Looking through the planner and it is heart warming. I love the surprise of included pencils. Thank you.
This is my first time buying this planner and I love it!! I needed a planner for my first semester of student teaching and it is everything I’ve ever wanted in a planner! From the planning aspect to the motivation and the fun dates added, this will for sure do the job and keep me motivated and organized. If you’re looking for a fun and functional planner, this is the one for you!! :)
I have come to rely on these annual planners. Each filled with insight and humor they allow me space to make plans and record what I do each day. I look forward to looking through them at the end of each year and reflect on all I have done. Great quality and great size! Love it!
I am so happy with all of my purchases from Adam. The planner, notebooks, and the Here For Now* book are all brilliant. Im an artist too, and it so refreshing to read authentic and genuine messages from another artist to get me through hard days. Thank you Adam.
I love this journal - it’s a delicious combo of LFG and getting things done and I love me. It’s also visually attractive which makes me want to use it! Super helpful.
I'm a bit of a planner junkie. This Unsolicited Advice Planner-Journal hybrid definitely ranks high on my list of all time faves. The Reflections and Projections pages are super insightful and the random words of encouragement are a nice touch. As a content creator, I absolutely love the mention of various national days (like National Spaghetti Day, National Word Nerd Day, etc.) as this gives me fun things to post about on social media when I have no clue what to post (which is like all the time). Weekly personal space and check-in spots are perfect to remind myself about work-life balance and the monthly reviews help keep me grounded and focused (no easy feat). All in all, this is a fun planner that speaks to my creative heart and I look forward to using it all year long as a perfect tool to keep track of my biz life/personal life.
I absolutely love my new planner! I have already personalized it and started planning out my year. I am excited about the self-check-ins throughout the planner/journal, and can’t wait to use more of my stickers! Thanks Adam! One thing that bothered me but was also impressive in a way: I took the sticker off of the back of the planner and it took me like 40 mins, a knife, and a bottle of rubbing alcohol. Strongest sticker glue I have ever encountered! 5 stars for sticker strength but I would’ve liked to me able to remove it a little more easily.
I've been getting Adam's planner for a few years now, and I look forward to the new one every year. This year is no exception! I love all of the notes and reflection, the stickers, and especially the heartfelt encouragement! Thanks for keeping this going!
Ordered my first planner last year and had to have another! It's a wonderful gift for people who love the idea of planning but are deterred by their own perfectionism - the planner doesn't cry out for perfect handwriting or washi tape or anything else (not that I don't truly admire those things) and so I can feel comfortable planning in my own way. Thanks, AdamJK. ;)
i love her
It’s so fun and has a great amount of space! I’m looking forward to using it in 2022!

These planners are absolutely stunning, and I love that they come with so many lovely stickers! The monthly tabs are super helpful, and the yellow always brightens my day.
This planner arrived wicked quick and had a little extra bonus! I am giving it as a gift, but am considering ordering one for myself now that I am seeing it in person!
I absolutely love this planner! I have bought one in the beginning of 2021, and everything about it just makes planning so fun. It is fun, informal, has lots of stickers that reminds me of joy! I could have gotten a traditional planner, but this planner is very special, it helps with my mental health and alleviates my stress. I love flipping through it and reading the quotes and funny holidays in it. It reminds me to balance school and fun, to work hard and to treat myself at the same time. I also like to decorate the pages of the monthly calendar to make the month ahead look more exciting. I also like to put other stickers on it! I think I'm going to continue buying it every year now!
Ahhh so happy with everything! I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling my 2022 thanks to alllll of these! Also thank you Adam for answering my questions about the package so I can estimate shipping through a third party service to my country :)
Unsolicited Advice has been my favorite planner for years, and it has held me together through 2020 *and* 2021. I'm excited to see what 2022 has to bring, and the cover already brings me immense amounts of joy. And this year there's a STICKER BOOK which means I might actually use the stickers instead of hoarding them. I can't wait.
My daughter asks for Adam's planners specifically, and she's got high standards Thank you, Adam! <3
So happy with my purchases from Adam. His customer service is top notch. I've purchased things for myself and as gifts. I'm never disappointed and always super impressed.
Glad I found this artist. I use the planner as a journal, and it works perfectly for me. Same encouraging prompts and smiles, so I’m not staring at a blank page wondering how to start. It’s like talking with a friend.
This is the 3rd year in a row I’ve bought this planner. I love them, and I’m obsessed with them. Do I use them all the time, or every day through the year? No, almost never. But I get so much joy from having them, from flipping through it & seeing all the fun little holidays, all the pieces of the creator that went so lovingly into it. I’ve bought one every year since 2019, and I’ll be damned if I don’t by one every year until the end of my existence. I recommend it to literally all of my friends (who have a decent sense of humor), and I’m so glad this planner exists- if not for helping me stay organized, at least for making me laugh and smile.
My night time ritual is to write a reflection of the day in my Unsolicited Advice journal. 2 years strong and haven't missed a day. Absolutely adore it.
LOVE energy single item!!!!
3rd year in a row purchasing these planners.
Adam JK quickly became a new favorite artist at the start of the pandemic when his content met me at the corner of "real" and "reflective." I ordered my planner asap and now that I have it in hand I am so ready for 2022 and a year of self-love and respect. It is important to note that I am a religious planner and list maker/user... so for this one to be my new choice, is HUGE
More fun stationery by Adam JK (👋)
Encouraging, realistic, and just a teeny bit of existential dread
