7 Habits Weekly Planner (PDF/Numbers)

I was going through my copy of 7 Habits and noticed that the book mentioned that a copy of the Franklin Covey Weekly Habits Planner was available at their site. No such copy was available online so I decided to create my own.

This template provides a weekly dashboard for assisting you to not only get stuff done, but to help you do the right stuff. It should prove useful to anyone working to improve their productivity using Covey's acclaimed 7 Habits system.

Paper size:

Usage advice: 

Using the PDF Reader of your choice specify the fit to page option to ensure the entire worksheet is printed.

I have also included the original Numbers (iWork '08) file for your tweaking.

[admin add-on]: BobH kindly contributed a Word copy of the template at the request of forum members.

I have been looking for this, this is such a big help and a time saver.

A Little Covey History - Pre-Merger

Some may remember that this template was a main cog in the Seven Habits Planner System published by Covey in the mid-1990's... I enjoyed using it for awhile. It was punched for the standard seven hole -- and the Seven Habits Planner pointedly preached against the daily prioritized to-do list and other items in the Franklin Planner.

So, it was a bit shocking when Hyrum Smith at FranklinQuest and Stephen Covey announced the merger of their operations and their planners. I started working part-time for FranklinCovey retail right after that -- it was a weird arranged marriage.

But, Covey got the instant retail stores he needed and Franklin got the celebrity pull of the "Covey Brandname".

Too bad that the Weekly Planning Component was a casualty of the merger. (But it did find a fine new advocate later in the form of David Allen, didn't it?)

Excel Format

Is there any chance of exporting this in Excel format please? Thanks Dean

I have my own variation of

I have my own variation of the Covey Weekly Plan but in a MS-Word table format. It is designed to print in Landscape on A4. My planner is A5 so would punch on the right hand side and use as a fold out form.

Anyway, not posted because of these limitations and because I have not had the opportunity to get into PDF under OO but am happy to share.

Hi abeckstrom,

You rock! Thanks for creating this planner. I went to Covey's website to in vain, but thankfully I have chanced upon this nice banner that you have created. (=

weekly planner

this is great! thanks!

Fantastic - would have preferred first day of week to be Monday


Great template. Really would love one with first day of week as Monday.

What did you produce it in? Could you email me and I'd be happy to edit it.



The application is called "Numbers"

Part of iWork

The original document is part of the zip file. It says way up at the top: "I have also included the original Numbers (iWork '08) file for your tweaking." Download it and have fun.

this template is great, but when I open it in Numbers, it wants to print six pages. How do I print the entire template on one page?

Cheers mate!

Just thought I'd add my thanks to this page also, just in case you come back and have a read!
I was going to make one myself but your skills are greater than mine! :)
