Content Our #PashFam Loves
We strive to motivate and inspire our audience with practical tools they can apply in their daily lives. This can be through fun listicles, motivating strategies, and heartfelt personal narratives. Please note that we are only considering topics that fall into one of these four categories.
1. Planner Tips
Planner tips are a #PashFam favorite! Our community is always eager to learn techniques and strategies on how to use their planner. Tell us your best Passion Planner hacks, from color coding to unique ideas for your blank pages.
We do what we can to support student success both inside and outside the classroom. Share resources and advice to help students embrace education with an empowered attitude.

The Voice of the #PashFam
The voice of the #PashFam is one that uplifts the voices of others. It is important that the tone of our writing comes from a place of cheering each other on. We are unapologetic about the fact that we don’t have it all figured out. While we are all goal-getters, we want to ensure that our overall message emphasizes the small steps. Everyone’s journey is unique to them, therefore we respect and withhold judgment for each other’s perspective and place in life.
At times we can be vulnerable and reflective,
“As I thumbed through the pages of my Passion Planner, I arrived at an inner reckoning. My Year in Pixels page indicated that I spent the majority of my year feeling anxious and angry. Relief swept over me when I erased canceled outings from my planner, astonished at the absence of my disappointment.
All this social distancing has taught me one thing: when everything falls away, what emerges is what matters most.”
and other times we can be funny and playful.
“The #PashFam of the Earth Kingdom are hardworking, logical, and strong-willed. Earthbenders are masters of staying grounded. Grounded, Earth… get it? In fact, Toph said it best: Earthbenders face their challenges head on. They ground themselves into the present moment, and have the strength and persistence to move mountains. Even if it has to happen one pebble at a time.”
No matter the situation, we do our best to show that Passion Planner is about more than just hard work: it’s heart work.
