In a previous post, I wrote about how I love the Passion Planner and listed off the things I really liked about it. For 2017, I’m going to attempt using it to work towards my goals and keep myself semi-organized and hopefully sane.
I’ve admired the Passion Planner for a long time. The one of the Kickstarter videos, I was introduced to the concept and promptly wish this planner had existed 10 years ago when I was a senior in high school.
I received my copy of the Passion Planner by sharing one of their 6 social media icons, screenshoting it, and emailing that screenshot to the listed email in order to receive the download password. I think this is an excellent way for Passion Planner to receive some free publicity and advertising, while the consumer, in exchange, gets access to all the wonder downloads the #PashFam team has created. Here’s the link to the download page. (Full disclosure: the Passion Planner FB groups do have people who will share the password with you for nothing in exchange. I’m not the ethics police, but I do not feel that is right, considering the small task you have to complete is receive the password won’t take more than 5 minutes and costs nothing. But that’s just me.)
I’m still feeling out this planner and filling it out. I’m still working on my Passion Road Map, and am planning on doing a separate video on that.
I’m not going to do a walk-through video explaining what this planner consists of. There are plenty of videos about that and the Passion Planner YouTube Channel has plenty of videos for your viewing pleasure.
I printed off the 2017 dated Classic size .PDF. It is the Sunday start. While I prefer a Monday start, I will deal with it. Instead of having it bound at Staples, I punched it and put it in a Mead Flex Binder (surprise surprise).
My Monthly spread is simple at the moment. I do plan on eventually decorating a little bit. I like the idea of decorating, but a planner for me is first and foremost Functional, not Pretty.
I’m still doing my color coding is still the same. Blue = work; Green = House/Philip/Us; Red = cross off/appointments/birthday; Purple = Cori Personal/side hustle/goals. I no longer have an orange ink in my Colletto, so exercise has been rolled into Green.
Weekly Spread: Jan 1-7
I started using this planner mid-week on the first week of January, hence why the beginning of the week is sparse and the end of the week has more information and tasks listed.
Weekly Spread: Jan 8-14
So far, I’ve only got Sunday and Monday filled in. I’ll be filling in the rest of the week after I’m doing with this post.
I also need get tabs onto the Months and all that. I hope to have another video showing off this planner more soon.
I’m not a paid spokesperson for Passion Planner. I just love this planner. I recommend trying it out, since getting access to the downloads isn’t very difficult.
