Everyone Needs a Little Passion Planning
You might be asking yourself, "Why does she need a planner now that she's retired?" That's a terrific question. The answer is...I have passions to plan.
I started using the Passion Planner several years ago after a friend recommended it. I fell in love quickly with it! It really kept me organized. At the time, I used the large academic year planner. I loved the big pages, the month-at-a-glance view, the weekly layouts with times, and the ability to list big personal and professional to-dos for each week. (There was a short time they quit selling the large planners and I thought I might not live. Thankfully, that didn't last long.) In the years I used the planner, I never looked back. I loved everything about it.
Then, in the spring, I retired from teaching. Strangely - and even to my own surprise - the first thing I did was buy a new planner. I moved from the large Passion Planner to the small one as it fits so nicely into bags and small spaces. I gave up my academic year calendar life for a new annual calendar.
There's so much to love about a planner no matter where you are in life. Personally, I still love the monthly at-a-glance view, the weekly layouts with times, and the ability to list my to-dos for the week. Interestingly, however, I now use parts of the calendar I had previously ignored. Somehow it's now easier to set three month, one year, and long term goals. It seems these days my personal to-do side is much more extensive than my work to-do lists. I find I have a lot more time to consider infinite possibility and am more inclined to use the reflection spaces. Who knew?
Yep. I'm retired. It seems retirement is the perfect time for a little planning. What better to plan than new passions? Thanks, Passion Planner.
