Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Titan Planner?
Titan Planner is the world’s simplest method to achieve your dreams and have a meaningful life. Our planner is based on the latest scientific evidence by the top productivity and happiness experts from around the world. We edited the concept of planning to make it interesting, inspirational and easy for everyone from busy skeptics to dreamers.
Why is the Titan Planner more effective than other planners?
The Titan Planner is based on the scientific concept of “backward planning”, a concept that has been used by many Titans throughout history. Some of the current Titans who use “backward planning” are Jeff Bezos and Oprah Winfrey, among others…
The idea is to start with your ultimate objective, your Titan goal, and then work backward from there to develop your plan. By starting at the end and looking back, you can mentally prepare yourself for success, map out the specific milestones you need to reach, and identify where in your plan you have to be particularly energetic or creative to achieve the desired results.
Backward planning is different from traditional planning. You need to force yourself to think from a completely new perspective, to help you see things that you might miss if you use traditional planning.
This combined with 365 inspirational quotes from 365 different Titans – past and present – from all around the world, a gratitude list and the Titan Checklist make the Titan Planner the ultimate success planner!

What is my Titan Mission Statement?
Your Titan Mission Statement is who you are and why you do what you do. Why are you on this earth? This is your vision, your calling, your personal legend… You must begin with the end in mind. Your Titan Mission Statement helps you stay focused.
Writing one, however, takes introspection. Ask yourself the following questions:
- What am I passionate about?
- What are my values?
- What makes me great?
Example of Titan Mission Statements:
“To be a teacher. And to be known for inspiring my students to be more than they thought they could be.” (Oprah Winfrey)
“To have fun in (my) journey through life and learn from (my) mistakes.” (Richard Branson)
“To refresh the world. To inspire moments of optimism and happiness. To create value and make a difference.” (Coca-Cola)
What are my Titan 5 for the Year?
These are the 5 most important things that must happen between now and the end of the year. Your Titan 5 for the Year must contribute to getting you closer to your Titan 5 for Life, which are the 5 most important things that must happen between now and the last hour of your last day, i.e., your deathbed.
Why are there “squares” next to each one of my Titan 5 for the Year, Titan 5 for the Month, Titan 5 for the Week, Titan 5 for Today, Tasks/Errands, and Titan Checklist?
These “squares” are actually checkboxes for you to check off items once you complete them.
When we experience even small amounts of success, our brains release dopamine, which is connected to feelings of pleasure, learning and motivation. When we feel the effects of dopamine, we’re eager to repeat the actions that resulted in success in the first place. Neuroscientists refer to this as “self-directed learning.” This is why achieving small goals is such an effective way to stay motivated during long-term projects and processes.
Checking items off of a checklist releases small amounts of dopamine that then fuel us to keep checking off more items, i.e. get more done! This is called “momentum”!

- Read the inspirational quote on the top of the page. This will reignite you for the day!
- List three things that you are grateful for. This is a game changer that is practiced by many Titans. You immediately become happier when you are aware of all you have!
- Next, set your Titan 5 for Today. These are 5 biggest things that must happen before the end of the day, and that will take you closer to your Titan 5 for the Year. Remember, if you improve by 1% every day, at the end of the year, you’ll be 365% better!
- Fill out your Tasks/Errands for the day. These are not necessarily related to your goals, but they are things that we all have to do: buying groceries, picking up your shirt from the dry-cleaners,… you get the idea.
- Schedule your day. As Jim Rohn said, “Never begin your day until it is finished on paper.” Titans schedule even their free time! How about family time? You bet! Remember that the things that get scheduled are the things that get done. So schedule away!
- Go on with your day and execute on your goals and plans!
What is my Evening Ritual?
Every evening, before you go to bed, do the following:

2. Check your Titan Checklist
a. Did you workout today?
b. Did you eat healthy and nutritious foods?
c. Are you getting enough sleep?
If you want to accomplish big things in life, you will need tons of energy and stamina! So make sure the 3 above are in place!
d. Did you make time to think?
e. Did you make time to read?
If you want to keep improving your professional and personal games, making time to think and read are essential. Ask any Titan, they will tell you!
f. Did you make time for your family?
You could have all the success in the world, but if you have no one to share it with, you will feel empty and miserable inside. So make sure you make time for your family. (Note: family here could mean your immediate family, distant family, friends… whatever “family” means to you, make time for them!)
