Passion Planner

Passion planner, planner addict, organisation, time management

I’ve added Passion Planner to my planning setup!

As I’ve blogged about before I have a Personal Filofax with a weekly view that I use for advanced planning / reminders & graph paper Field Notes (in cherry wood) in the back that I use as a bullet journal for brain dumping tasks etc.

What was missing was a method of increasing productivity via better time management. That’s where the Passion Planner comes in. What I’ve done in the picture about is to use the free weekly downloads on their site and have stuck them into a notebook. This is a temporary measure whilst I trial this method however strongly suspect I’ll be buying the 2016 compact version (which has monthly pages etc too) soon.

I’ve been a fan of Passion Planner from the day I saw the first Kickstart video however as a standalone planner it didn’t meet my needs as I juggle a number of regular clients as well as ad hoc projects each week as well as everything home / family / school related.

One of the things that really attracted me to the Passion Planner was their social media accounts, specifically the CEO’s idea of using the Passion Planner to achieve bucket list items or achieve wild dreams. This was unlike anything I’ve seen on any other planner / organisation website and I love it. It doesn’t matter whether your goal is to lose 3 stone, buy a house or attend the American Academy Theatre Academy in London or New York and enjoy the limelight; the idea is that nothing is impossible if you prioritise, organise and focus.

Used alongside the Filofax (appointments, school information, club info, birthdays, important dates etc) and the Bullet Journal (running task lists of what I need to achieve work and home each day) it seems to have really come into its own. I’m using it to schedule my time and so far so good! Given that I’ve recently taken on (another) course to do from home making the most of my time is going to be essential.

Do you use a Passion Planner? What is your current planner system? Comment and let us all know.
