I have been giving a lot of thought to my next work and personal planner purchase(s). I have explored a wide variety of product reviews because I enjoy researching the crap out of something before I take the leap. In the process, the universe sent me a link to the Passion Planner – an appointment calendar, goal setting guide, journal, sketchbook, gratitude log & person and work to-do lists all in on notebook. These are all things I have liked about various planners, but haven’t been able to find in one place. Angelia launched the 2014 version and had huge success, raising more than $48k in 23 days to make the first version of the planner a reality. For the 2015 launch, she is raising funds for a smaller version of the planner – 5.5″x 8.5″. So far, the campaign has raised $400k with 16 days (as of this post) to go.
I love that she has included a gratitude log, as many of us can get lost in the details and overwhelm of a given day or week. The brainstorming/sketchbook section is a great addition – and in my mind a “free play” area you don’t get with other planners. The goal mapping area is GREAT for visualizing goals and breaking them down into manageable parts.
Not only has Angelia created a kick-ass product, but she is giving away the PDF for free for those who get out the word.
“I have so much belief that Passion Planner can be a catalyst to change someone’s life that I feel that anyone should be able to use it regardless of their financial ability.
That’s why I’ve decided to share it for free.“
I’m backing her project, and you may want to as well. Head over to the Passion Planner’s Kickstarter page for more details.
