From the outside, it looks like any old normal bound calendar:
But when you look inside, you realize the time and care Angelia put into creating such a wonderful tool, starting with an introduction where she shares the Passion Planner story.
I love the inspirational quotes included in each's week's layout.
One of the first exercises is building your Passion Roadmap. I have done exercises like this in my corporate life but tend to only plan out a year or so at a time in my personal life. Passion Planner has you think out a bit further than that: 3 years and Lifetime!
I have always recorded my completed beading projects but use the Monthly Section to do that now. Each day, I make a quick notation of what I worked on and when I finish something, I highlight it in yellow so I can track how much time something takes to complete. In the lower right section, I keep track of my blog topics.
I use the Weekly Section to track my to-do's for the week along with activities and accomplishments, making the planner a cross between a calendar and a journal. I love how there are separate sections for personal and work to-do's.
So just when you think electronics have put a stake in the physical planner industry, someone like Angelia comes along and reminds us why the physical act of writing is so therapeutic and productive.
I selected the basic black version but there are some fun color options (like turquoise - yummy) and options that don't have dates. I just bought one for a friend who is retiring and think she will have a great time planning her great expanse of free time.
