The Layout

The planner begins with an introduction to the Passion Planner company, community, and system.

This is followed by a 2-page spread entitled Your Passion Roadmap, where you work through brainstorming your goals.

Next is a 2021 and 2022 yearly calendar with some blank space at the bottom of each page for future planning.

Then you move into the monthly/weekly pages. The monthly pages provide a full monthly calendar, as well as space for highlighting things you want to focus on that month, personal and work project lists, and some blank space for anything you’d like.

The bulk of the planner consists of the weekly pages. Each week gets a two-page spread, with vertical columns for each day. Times are pre-printed along the left side in half-hour increments, starting at 6:00am and ending at 10:30pm.

There is a block at the top of each day for that day’s focus, as well as space along the left for the weekly focus and some good things that happened. Personal and work project lists are included on the bottom-left, with more blank brainstorming space along the bottom-right.

At the end of each month there is a 2-page monthly reflection spread, which gives you space to look back over the previous month and reflect on your progress.

Additionally, there is a mid-year checkup spread between June and July to assess your Passion Roadmap and make any adjustments before heading into the second half of the year.

At the end of the monthly and weekly pages they’ve provided a space for your year-end reflection.

Finally, there are about 20 blank Note pages and 23 dot-grid Notes pages in the back, as well as a pocket for corralling stickers, notes, receipts, etc.

Extras

The Passion Planner shop features a nice assortment of planner accessories, such as monthly tabs, stickers, and notepads. They also provide a free sample of the planner you can download and play around with before you commit to buying.

There is also a very active and engaged Passion Planner community (#pashfam).

Pen Test

I tried a variety of ballpoint, felt tip, gel, and fountain pens in the Commit30. The gels were the best, in my opinion, followed by the felt tip. Both showed up very nicely on the thick, white paper with no bleed-through and no ghosting.

My Verdict

This is a very nice option if you like a reasonably-priced weekly planner with a lot of goal-setting space and a clean, uncluttered look.
