Hi, my name is Sarah and I’m addicted to planners. That’s not really the point of this post but it needs to be known either way. Earlier this year I wrote about feeling stuck and that I wanted to change my life for the better. I’ve been taking some very small baby steps towards getting myself “unstuck” but recently I feel as if I’ve taken a very huge leap. I feel like I took that leap because of a planner. I recently bought and received a Passion Planner. I had been trying to find a new planner for a long time but wasn’t finding anything I thought would work. Once I saw some reviews of the Passion Planner it slowly grew on me that it was the planner I had been looking for.
The reason I wanted this planner in particular was because it was designed to help you accomplish your goals. This planner helps you build a roadmap for your goals. You build your roadmap by thinking “If I could have anything, be anything, or do anything, what would it be?” So with that in mind, I filled out what I wanted in the next 3 months, 1 year, 3 years and in my lifetime. I tried to keep it realistic because as much as I want to be married to Keanu Reeves in the next 3 months, I’m pretty sure that won’t happen in my lifetime.
After I completed my roadmap I choose one goal from every section. I was supposed to choose the one that I thought would have the most positive impact on my life.
From my lovely roadmap I was supposed to pick my game changer. Yes, with this planner there is a lot of picking. You are supposed to choose this one based on the thought of what would have the most positive impact on your life right now. I choose getting back into school for what I feel like are pretty obvious reasons. I want to help financially support my family, I want to be more independent and I want to have a career of my own. So after picking the game changer, I started to make my plan. I thought of everything I needed to do to get back into school and assigned due dates to those tasks.
I was unsure of how things would go since motivating myself is the hardest part about accomplishing my goals, but I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly I got things done and checked off my list. I’ve already completed calling the college to figure out what my student status was, I registered for 2 spring classes and by the end of the first week I set up my payment plan. I’m really excited to start school but I think I may be more excited that this planner is helping me accomplish my big goals. I feel as if this planner is helping me focus on what is important to me and is moving me forward. I’ve always been a goal setter but I haven’t always been a goal accomplisher. I’m really hopeful that with the help of this planner that actually getting my goals done won’t be the struggle it has been.
I do plan on doing a full review of the Passion Planner, complete with pictures, at a later date so keep your eye out if you are interested. If you are feeling stuck and need a change or you are having difficulty setting or accomplishing your goals get a Passion Planner. I highly recommend it and find it immensely useful, it can’t hurt to try it right?
