Who wants to be motivated, inspired and organized?
I don’t know many people who would answer NO to any of those things mentioned above. Motivation and inspiration are two things that keep us going, whether we realize it or not. AND being organized helps us to manage our day-to-day lives, achieve our goals, help make our dreams come true and keep us sane throughout the process.
We are all different and as different people, we all thrive best using different “systems” to keep our lives organized. Some people are “paper and pencil” types and some are digital peeps. Some people like one page per day in a planner and others like a week at a glance.
Because of all of our differences and needs when it comes to being organized, I was almost at the point where I was ready to create my very own planner system, but before I did, I researched a ton of free 2016 planners that I could try out.
This new planner that I was on the hunt for needed to include so many different features, I wasn’t confident that I would find one.
The areas that were important to me were:
- A section to dream and set goals
- A place for me to record my intentions AND successes for stepping out of my comfort zone in order to help me grow
- To Do Lists
- A daily (by the hour) schedule
- Meal Plans for dinner
Last November, I searched for templates that I could download and test out. I gave each one a try for a week and finally found one that I fell in love with.
The Passion Planner.
I ordered it at the beginning of December and received it early January. This will be my third week of using it and I absolutely love it! BUT, not every planner is made for everyone, so I have listed a few other options that I highly considered as well.
I decided to purchase the bound version of the Passion Planner for a few reasons:
- To support Passion Planner for all of their hard work.
- My entire year would be in one place and bound together in a high quality cover.
- It gives me more incentive to truly commit to using the planner all year.
