Have you ever felt your life and all its responsibilities slipping out of your grasp? I know that’s pretty dramatic but times like that happen! You end up with random scraps of paper and Notes on your phone of things to do but no clear organization. Things started to fall apart for me when I finished graduate school and life no longer fit into neat little semesters and quarterly budgets. I got a full-time job that took up much of my day, and my broader reaching goals faded into the background. With the help of my new Passion Planner, I was able to hone in on my “purpose” and what to do on a daily basis to maintain consistent strides towards my goals.
The Passion Planner is a growing planner design, birthed from the mind of Angelia Trinidad. After much success with her Kickstarter campaign in 2013, her brand has expanded far beyond the United States.
Each Passion Planner begins with an introduction to the planner, welcome, and “Passion Roadmap”. The Passion Roadmap leads you through various activities (totally in about 10 minutes) to complete in order to identify your “Game Changer”. From there, throughout the planner, you revisit these topics and plan out your journey to success through meaningful steps outlined each week. For example, each monthly spread provides a section for you to map our your Game Changer and how you will move one step closer to the end goal. Weekly planning spreads additionally offer places to identify your weekly and daily focuses, celebrate good things that happened in the week, list priority tasks for the week, and lastly, a notes section.
Amazing or Naw?
I am in love with the monthly reflection questions. Of course, the questions are something I could’ve found on Pinterest, but I didn’t. The planner walks you through the previous month and revisits notes taken throughout the weeks. I truly appreciate the small wins that were celebrated and lessons learned. Additionally, the layout simply encourages mental organization beyond immediate to-do lists. I am already thinking about major plans to prepare for in September (and that’s not just because my birthday is in the latter half of the month).
I assume that I’m not the only one who needs motivation from time to time in pursuing my passion. It’s possible to be “on fire” for a topic but sometimes that flame dims just a bit. Every now and then, I luck up on a quote, conversation, or brief interaction that pushes me to move forward. The Passion Planner provides that without the coincidental aspect. Mini challenges each week inspire me to reach passion goals and quotes remind me of the importance of intentional planning.
The Passion Community
I admire the community that has formed around the Passion Planner. Through great branding, The Passion Planner social media outlets showcase how others use their planner and the awesome developments of the product. Getting inspiration too from other users keeps my own usage fresh. I can change up the way I use my weekly spread and find best practices for my own planning system with the same planner.
Free Resources & Expansion
One of the great aspects of the Planner Passion is access to digital components right away. All Passion Planner purchasers get access to the digital version immediately after purchase. There are a variety of page sizes and layouts. Having the digital version of the planner allows me to print a weekly, monthly, or planning spread one at a time for further brainstorming. Sometimes I find myself filling up my planner that I have little to no room to add any more notes. The digital copy provides more flexibility and room as needed. I also love the expansion worksheets. There are inserts such as water, calories, workout, finance, and habit trackers. There are other page inserts, but you’ll have to discover them after purchasing the planner!
