A surprise arrived in the mail last week. My new Passion Planner.
It wasn’t a complete surprise. I’d ordered it back in the summer, but it’s one of those situations where you do something, forget about it and then it comes back to
bite you delight you.
A friend introduced me to Passion Planner last year when she gave me a planner for Christmas. It’s been a long time since I’ve used a paper planner–my calendar on my computer runs my life–but this one was a game changer.
“Passion Planner is more than just a planner–it is a tool that helps you break down your short and long-term goals and incorporate them into your daily life. It has been designed to encourage you to plan for the future, reflect on the past, but most importantly, act on the present.”
This past year as I’ve focused on my communications consulting and writing, my Passion Planner has done all that.
Back in January, I sketched out my passion roadmap. What was my ultimate goal? What did that goal look like 3 months from now? One year from now? 3 years? Over a lifetime? Then I planned it out. What steps did I need to take first? When did I want to complete each step?
Every Monday morning, I sit down with the planner and look at the week that just finished and the week that’s just beginning. At the end of the month, I do the same.
I’m not always on track, but the planner has really helped me to focus on what is most important. It’s also helped me to be specific.
It’s great to have dreams and set goals. But achieving those dreams and goals takes work and planning. Passion Planner is a tool to help me make those plans and then do the work.
I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished over the past year, and I’m excited to stay on track next year with my new Passion Planner.
