We’ll Be Passionate about our aide’s success this year

GREAT NEWS! We are a recipient of the Passion Planner “Get One Give One” grant this year!

Instead of continuing to wander aimlessly through life our aides will be learning to budget their time and recognize, express, and achieve their own personal life goals using the Passion Planner tool.

Thank-you to all who have already purchased their Passion Planner this year: your purchase enabled Passion Planner to empower our Senior Aide’s to take more control of their lives and become more important contributors to our local community! Passion Planner has many gorgeous planners available so if you do not yet have your planner, we suggest that you get one of these awesome life tools to conquer your “Analysis Paralysis” and become a more potent element in achieving your dreams. READY TO JOIN THE #PASHFAM? Get your Passion Planned today!


Many people use a day planner of some sort to keep on top of their schedule. They’ll pay $50 or more for a Day Timer, or maybe a little less for some off brand.

Few people know about the awesome Passion Planner that I use and teach in class, which I get from

My planner differs from the mundane rank and file planners in that it asks me questions every month to help me think about what my goals are and to take steps so that I achieve my goals.

The gal who dreamed up this amazing tool has this to say about it:

Analysis paralysis. That was the feeling that spiraled me into a strange, post-grad depression and the problem that I wanted to help people overcome.

I decided to make a tool that helped people clearly define their personal goals and dreams and put them at the forefront of their attention, a planner was the PERFECT solution. Passion Planner helps people break down their long and short terms goals into more actionable steps and gives them a place to incorporate these steps into their daily lives.

Passion Planner is usually competitively priced and available in two sizes, and many colors, but now you can get the Academic version for FIVE DOLLARS ($5). That is right, it’s five bucks for a 2018 Academic Version Passion Planner, at least until they are sold out. Seriously! You can’t get a cheap knock-off at the dime store for five bucks!

If you use a planner or never tried one before and want to start hitting life like a boss, if you want 2018 to be the year that you finally get somewhere, I suggest that you try the technique that we teach in classes at Adult Life Training: use a Passion Planner to think about what you want to become and then plan steps to just do it! Plus it is a very classy looking planner – people will notice this piece of art when you carry it!

So this can be YOUR YEAR for five bucks! Break away from the pack and become awesome! Get your Passion Planner as I did and get started on reaching those goals you always dreamed about but never quite reached. Make this YOUR year.

Please have a Happy and Prosperous New Year!

Passion Planner

Calendar Adult Life Training provides Life Skills training, that is we teach people who have never had a job, often from families which have never had a working adult, how to get and keep a real, un-subsidized, paying, job.  We have done this since 2003, 13 years now.

Part of our curriculum is Computer Job Skills, and also Hard Job Skills (reading, writing, locating information), and through mentoring Soft Job Skills (why solving workplace problems by punching your fellow employees is a bad idea). This January we were able to add Financial Literacy Skills due to a generous grant from 3 Rivers Federal Credit Union Foundation.

This new training has been very well received, and a few local organizations have received from us a Membership Kit from this grant (and we still have a few left for local government or public charity organizations who would like to teach financial literacy to their clients) so that they can independently provide this same training to their own clients at their own facilities. And it is working: people are starting to take control / responsibility for their financial matters instead of always expecting someone else to take care of them. The people we help are not usually “bad” people, they just never had anyone show them how to do these things.y

Today I have exciting news: we have received another grant to help our community! We will soon receive some Passion Planners through the Get One, Give One philanthropy program, so we will be adding Time Management Skills to the curriculum! If you use a planner, or more if you have not been using a planner, we highly recommend that you go to and purchase one of these unique, goal oriented, personal time management tools! They even have a very attractive Limited Edition in Paradise Blue!

Passion Planners are unique in that they configure themselves to you! They were designed by a grad student to help her overcome her own “Analysis paralysis”: that feeling of post-grad depression: she decided “to make a tool that helped people clearly define their personal goals and dreams and put them at the forefront of their attention”. Her “Passion Planner helps people break down their long and short term goals into more actionable steps and gives them a place to incorporate these steps into their daily lives through a format as simple as asking ‘Is what I am going to do today going to get me closer to my goals?’ “.

zPassion Planner helps you to express your Dreams and turn them into actionable Goals, with a time line that you define. Through better understanding your own desires you can move forward through the fog of uncertainty to attain those things that really do matter to you.

You can download a free, non-sharable, sample from their web site and try it out, or dive right in and order a Passion Planner in the size and format you love the best. Passion Planner: “a tool that encourages you not only to start thinking about your goals, but makes taking action towards them a part of your daily life!”

I look forward to our Passion Planners arrival, and I trust you will too! I encourage you to check the Passion Planner web site at to browse the planners, or click the Download menu item to get a sample that you can try downloaded immediately to your computer or other device. And when you buy one, please fill me in at the Referral Box!
