I’m the first to admit that I didn’t use the Passion Planner exactly how it’s meant to be
used. I didn’t always follow my Goal Mapping or have the correct focus detailed at the top of each day.
I was able to track my time better, and specifically how I spend my time – not just the reality but also to see plainly where I actually spent my time vs where I want to spend my time.
While I have three weeks left to 2016, I’ll use this time to really detail my Gamechangers, and follow through on giving each task an amount of time needed to complete, then a spot in my calendar. Already this has shown me where my focus needs to go in terms of hustling for specific kinds of work and not just work in general (ah, the freelance life).
I also was inconsistent with the monthly reflections, which is partly because I had an undated planner but also because the time to do that needs to be calendared, and I just didn’t. However, I’m taking the advice that Passion Planner gives and expanding upon it. They suggest finding a PP buddy to keep each other accountable. I found some of my friends on Facebook who have or want to use a Passion Planner (or another system that’s close), and we’ll have monthly check-ins to help one another. We’re starting next week and I honestly can’t wait (except I can, because I have so much Goal Mapping to do before then).
That is our first task before we meet:
- Finish the Wish List as detailed in the Passion Planner’s first pages.
- Detailed Gamechanger Goal Mapping for at least 3 months, 1 year, 3 years and Lifetime.
- Share in the Facebook Event as they’re finished.
When we do our video check-ins, we’ll go over any questions about the process and obstacles we found. Then review one Gamechanger apiece and share ideas.
We’ll see how this goes. I know that only using their methods part-time worked well, so I look forward to being more organized with my time. I already feel much clearer mentally.
I have no affiliation with Passion Planner except I’m a fan. You can find their free downloads here to try it out.
