Designed for every type of every day, the Passion Planner Daily was built to align your days with your dreams.
Before being hired at Passion Planner, I was a huge #PashFangirl, so being able to get my hands on the Daily before it released was an absolute dream. I’m here to answer your biggest question:
“What is Passion Planner Daily and how is it different from Passion Planner Weekly?”
WHAT IS PASSION PLANNER DAILY?
Passion Planner Daily harkens to many of the signature features of the Passion Planner Weekly, now with new additions to make every day count.
In the Daily, we want to make sure that you're not only taking care of business, but taking care of yourself too. That's why we have even more reflection prompts for you to check-in with yourself, assessing the emotional and psychological quality of your day. There are 93 dotted pages for each day to ensure that everybody has room to express themselves, whether through writing, drawing, photographs, or your personal art form.
Now that we have overviewed the general anatomy of the Passion Planner Daily, we can jump into specifics about how it differs from Passion Planner Weekly.
The Passion Planner Weekly is available in three sizes: Small (5.8"x8.3"), Medium (6.9”x9.8”), and Large (8.3”x11.7”). (You can always test which size works for you with our free Handwriting Test PDF.) Passion Planner Daily currently is only available in Small, making it identical in size to a Small Passion Planner Weekly. The word “Daily” is debossed on the spine of all Passion Planner Dailies, the distinguishing difference between the two.

Passion Planner Limited Edition Daily Colors
Our Signature Elite Black
Whether considering the Passion Planner Weekly or the Passion Planner Daily, there are a variety of factors to take into account. Passion Planners Weeklies are available with Undated, Academic (August - July), or Annual (January - December) calendars. Passion Planner Dailies are Undated to benefit structured and flexible planners alike.
There are also many Limited Edition colors to choose from. Limited Editions are unique to each release, meaning that the cover design and color will only be available for that year. Our classic Elite Black is available no matter which Passion Planner you choose.
PASSION ROADMAPS AND GAMECHANGERS
The signature Passion Roadmap is the same across all Passion Planners, including the Daily. All members of the #PashFam begin their planner on the same foot: breaking down goals into 3 Month, 1 Year, 3 Years, and Lifetime.
On the other hand, drilling down your GameChanger goals differs between the Weekly and the Daily. For Weekly #PashFam, you take the goal that is going to make the most positive impact on your life right now, and mindmap actionable steps and deadlines to achieve it.
The Daily takes it several steps further. In addition to defining your “why” and visualizing the achievement of your GameChanger goal, you are also prompted to identify resources and support to help you along the way.
MONTHLY VS. ANNUAL LAYOUT
With the Passion Planner Weekly, you are able to see your month at a glance. There are areas for This Month’s Focus, People To See, Places to Go, Personal and Work Projects, and a GameChanger mindmap. There are plenty of opportunities to hone in on the details!
The Passion Planner Daily has both an annual calendar and 4 monthly layouts, giving you a snapshot of the entire year. You get an abbreviated look at your month, now with an expanded, linear view that allows a side-by-side peek of the previous and following months. Fill in the blanks with anything you like, from appointments to vacations, birthdays, and anniversaries. The layout is minimal but comprehensive, giving you the freedom to make it as specific or as unstructured as you’d like.
WEEKLY VS. DAILY LAYOUT
There are a number of distinct differences between the Passion Planner Weekly and the Daily, but perhaps none more significant as the weekly and daily layout.
The Passion Planner Weekly and Daily layouts offer both action and reflection items, including Today’s Focus and Personal and Work To-Do Lists. The Passion Planner Weekly's schedule has seven days worth of planning with the option of beginning on Sunday or Monday. They are also available in an Undated format if you require a bit more flexibility.
The anatomy of the Daily layout is the perfect balance between structure and freedom. New fill-in-the-blank additions like Free Space to Grow, Self-Maintenance, and a Mood Tracker ensure that you are committing to caring for yourself while pursuing your goals. An entire page is devoted to the Space of Infinite Possibility, which means lots of room to brainstorm, journal, and draw however you please.
MONTHLY REFLECTIONS VS. SELF CHECK-INS
One of the defining qualities of Passion Planner is the Monthly Reflections. Checking in with yourself regularly ensures that you are celebrating the small wins, reminiscing on memories made, and looking for ways to improve for the next month.
Passion Planner Weeklies have a series of seven questions to reflect on your month. Answers are in lined form, structured for written insights but can certainly be used for drawings and photographs.
The Passion Planner Daily keeps it simple with a four question Self Check-In. The answer box is dotted, making it conducive for any type of creative expression: lists, long-form writing, doodles, you name it. The reflection questions are followed by another GameChanger page, so you can strategize your focus for the upcoming month.
Passion Planner, Passion Planner Daily, or Both?
I usually find the #PashFam in two camps when it comes to figuring out which planner is right for them. Folks who value structure and require increased accountability are often comfortable with an Academic or Annual Passion Planner Weekly, while people searching for more flexibility but still seeking to stay organized may enjoy the Undated Passion Planner Weekly or the Passion Planner Daily.
If you’re like me, you may enjoy owning both a Passion Planner Weekly and a Passion Planner Daily. The Daily is extremely versatile in its use, so instead of seeing it as managing two planners, I see it as owning one planner, and one specialized journal.
That said, I am only one member of the #PPDaily family. There are so many different ways to use the Passion Planner Daily: as a daily scheduler, a wedding planner, a health tracker, and even more. It can be useful for detailed everyday scheduling or looking at your year holistically. Whether for special short-term endeavors or bigger aspirations, the possibilities are truly endless.
Still unsure about which option is right for you? Try before you buy with our free Passion Planner Weekly and Passion Planner Daily downloads!
There may be a lot of nuanced differences and similarities between all of the Passion Planners, but one thing’s for sure: you know you’ll be living intentionally, no matter which planner you choose.
