We've all been there... it's the end of December, gearing up for the new year, and you start thinking of everything you want to accomplish in 2017. Eat healthy! Do yoga! Meditate! Catch up with old friends! Read all the books, go all the places, do all the things! By the time January 31st rolls around, you're back in your old habits and the goals that felt so clear have fallen by the wayside. This annual pattern happens to the best of us, which is why I chose this planner for my Daily Find. Watch the Instagram story above and read on to see why this is THE tool to help you truly follow through on your New Year's resolutions!

When an old friend told me about the Passion Planner, I had to admit I was a little skeptical. I have always used a simple, at-a-glance day planner that keeps me on track; why should I switch to something different? However, when I saw this gorgeous planner in person I was totally sold.

When Founder and CEO of Passion Planner Angelia Trinidad graduated from college in 2013, she felt directionless and uncertain — a feeling we can ALL relate to — and decided to create the planner that she wished someone had given her during that period of transition.

She writes:

"I wanted to help people overcome that feeling by making a tool that sat them down to clearly define their goals and dreams, break them down into more actionable steps, and then write them in a place that they would see and use everyday. A planner was PERFECT for this. I wanted people to use this planner as a compass to guide their daily decisions. It's simple. You ask yourself, is what I am going to do today going to get me closer to my goals? Yes? Do it. No? Don't do it. I wanted to make a tool that encouraged people to not only think about their goals, but take action towards making those goals a part of their daily lives."

Angelia's story really resonated with me, so I knew starting this planner would be a step in the right direction for 2017.

The planner starts with a "passion roadmap" meant to guide you through 3 month, 1 year, 3 year, and even lifetime goals! From there you can create your "passion plan" to help prioritize the goals and make a timeline. This whole process is designed to allow you to dream big while also breaking down your goals into totally manageable steps. And in addition to a weekly and monthly layout, there is also space to reflect upon the past month and refocus on your original passion.

And the best part about Passion Planner is that it is made for EVERYONE and is totally customizable for your needs. The site is filled with testimonials from people of all walks of life with so many different passions — from parents to students to athletes to artists — anyone can make it their own. And with so much bullet journaling #inspo out there, it's easy to get motivated to make your planner as beautiful, colorful, and unique as you want.
