Finish 2016 Strong; Things You Love

by Suzanne L. Beenackers

I’m still STOKED (oh this word needs capitals, right?) about my decision to make these last weeks count, and try-out new planning tools for the next year. This way my set-up for 2017 will be confident in January.

I find at least one perfect planning system every 48 hours. Or at least one perfect aspect to it.

I found a five pound planner by Danielle Laporte – with a daily/weekly/annual focus on how you want to feel. This is the only calendar I m linking – the others are not available through Dutch retailers.
So next to that, I saw a video review from the 2017 Ashley Shelly planner. It had a monthly spread; with five things that create happiness and that you’d like to do more this month. I thought that was awesome – to focus more on what you want to do (how you want to spend your time) and a little less on goal setting and tasks.
I discovered two other calendars (not counting one super spiffy one that turned out to have bible verses in it) that combine journaling and a 2017 calendar;
– The Happiness Planner (USA)
– Hello Day Planner (UK)
You should be able to find them on YouTube or Google.

But yesterday I truly hit the jackpot!

I found a system called The Passion Planner. It’s both a gorgeous notebook style planner but it also has a FREE pdf version. In exchange for sharing The Passion Planner on social media you can download the academic year planner or a blank planner, A4 or compact, and sheets for notes or other tracking systems.

On YouTube you can find ways to use Passion Planner, but unfortunately they all work with the notebook pret-a-porter Passion Planner. I think the real value of this system, is that the pdf’s allow you to print out your own A4 or compact Passion Planner, and personalize it with extra sheets in between for your lists and projects, or challenges that you want to keep track of.

Or, as I intend to set it up for December, you can insert your version of Ashley Shelley’s month spread into your Passion Planner at the beginning of every month.

Thursday it’s the first of December.
So on behalf of the Ashley Shelley planner company;
What’s your word or mantra for the month?
What creates happiness in your life and would you like to do more this month?
What do you want to create?
What are the routines and habits that help you create your best days?
(don’t forget to make a habit tracker!)
Personal Goals this month (3)

Not all of us are addicted to planning, but each and every one of us, can benefit from knowing what makes you feel good, and inserting a whole lot more of that this December.

And that really doesn’t have to weigh 5 pounds.
