Why is The Zelo Journal so powerful?

The Zelo Journal is a premium Productivity Planner, Organiser and Calendar all in one. The Zelo pack provides a flexible base for you to break down your biggest ambitions into daily chunks of progress.

Look here at why we created the Zelo Journal, and how the journal can benefit you.


Have you experienced this?


  • A Lack of Progress Towards Your Long-Term Goals is Making You Feel Deflated.
  • You Experience Stress & Anxiety About Work on Evenings & Weekends.
  • You Never Seem to Have Enough Time.
  • You Experience Periods of Low Motivation.
  • You’ve Never Got Round to That Goal (or Feel a Lack of Direction).
  • You Don’t Feel Fulfilled at The End of Each Week.


You see, these frustrations formed the base for creating the journal. We spoke to hundreds of people all saying the same things.

Life’s too short to be feeling these emotions on a regular basis. We wanted to create a way for people to find their passion and work towards them every day.

Regardless of your ambitions, you can achieve them with the right tools.

Get the Most Out of Every Single Day With a Flexible Productivity & Wellbeing System

The Zelo Journal has been designed to empower the user. The 16 Page User Guide. The Habit Tracker. All the different flexible components of the journal.

They’re all designed so that you can implement the techniques that work for you and your lifestyle. Not someone else’s. Yours. This is about empowering you with the right tools to be productive, but also the space to be creative.

Achieve Your Goals – Use the Three-Step System Ensuring You’re Always Working Towards Them

We reach real achievement through hundreds (or thousands) of smaller actions, repeated over a long period of time.

 The three-step system ensures that your long-term goals, your weekly goals and your daily goals are all linked. No more ‘floating’ through the day. (hurrah!)

Clear Your Mind – Reduce Anxiety & Stress So That You Can Enjoy Relaxed Evenings and Weekends 

This Journal provides a structure so that you can leave your anxious thoughts on paper. After this, you come back to them better mentally prepared.

What’s more? The system is designed not only so you can relax more on evenings and weekends. It is arranged in such a way that you will be able to complete tasks more efficiently the next working day. This is achieved by engaging your subconscious mind (Read The New Psycho-Cybernetics by Dr Maxwell Maltz if you’d like to know more about this).


Why Not an App?

The aim is to move away from anything on the phone. We’re a generation addicted to technology and social media. How often do you find yourself scrolling through your phone aimlessly?

Time away from technology is now precious and valuable.

With a paper journal there is only you and your journal, your plans, your ambitions and your goals. On your phone there are hundreds of apps and thousands of people trying to get your attention. It’s not good for your mind and it’s less than optimal when you’re concentrating on your planning and reviews.

And let’s be honest. Nothing quite feels like pen to paper and crossing off targets once you’ve reached them.

Decrease Stress – No More ‘Off-Days’

Building positive habits is critical to achieving your goals. The daily system helps you build these daily habits necessary to reach your goals. Looking at the inner pages, the Zelo Journal allows you to break down your long-term goals into daily opportunities of progress.

Looking at the cover, the Zelo Journal shows that Productivity, Daily Planning & Wellbeing can look sharp too. No more ‘off-days’ or feeling lost. The daily system ensures that you stay firmly in line for progress towards your goals every day.

Feel Fulfilled – Ambitious Goals Are Achievable by Anyone

The Zelo Journal ensures that you can take any long-term goal and break it down into its components. It shows that you can look at any goal and achieve it. The aim is that you feel empowered to get the most out of every day.

A system tailored for you.

You’ll be free to set the example for all your peers and make progress like you never have before. Regardless of your goals, it’s within your power to achieve them. I’d like you to turn your dreams and visions into a reality. To impress and inspire all of those around you.

Look Sharp, Feel Sharp

Sick and tired of poor-quality diaries & journals? We were too!

We tried and tested hundreds of different materials in the development of the journal.

The result? A stunning journal with and all-black finish. We’ve combined a minimal design with the best quality materials we could get our hands on.

Michael, our founder launched Zelo through Kickstarter in December 2018 and received worldwide press coverage in the likes of Forbes.

Here, Michael describes his motivations to create the Zelo Journal.

The Same System I’ve Used to Reach my Long-Term Goals.

You see, I’ve been there. I’ve felt the lack of progress towards my goals.

I’ve felt demotivated for long periods of time. I’ve felt stressed and anxious about work on evenings & weekends.

I’ve tried out productivity systems, only to become frustrated with the lack of flexibility. I’ve sat there at the end of the week, unfulfilled with what I had achieved. I know the feeling. I’ve been there too. 

Then I began Journaling.

What did this mean for me?

This meant leaving my draining office job to set up my own 20,000 attendee festival (www.northleedsfoodfestival.co.uk). What’s more? I used this journal system to ensure I stayed on track whilst planning the festival during my travels through Latin America.

I was planning a long-term goal of mine (setting up a festival), while experiencing a long-term goal of mine (travelling Latin America). For this I was using a system which has now become the Zelo Journal.

I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been, mentally & physically. I’m spending as much time with friends and family as I’d like. My life is now guided by freedom and choice and I’m always working towards my long-term goals.

I’m not special, I’m not gifted… and I’m far from perfect! I’m just a normal guy, who likes normal things.

However, I haven’t reached my goals because of some complex system.

It’s just a simple flexible journal, that I use every day. I hope you love it as much as I do.


I’m always happy to hear stories of how the blog and the journal may have impacted you. If you have any questions at all, please get in contact at [email protected].com .
