Goal Setting Printables
I love the fresh start of a new year. It’s something I look forward to. Something I plan for. It’s a time to buy a new planner, some new pens and devote some time to thinking of the goals for the year ahead. I was listening to Jay Shetty’s podcast last week and he said “Who we become in the journey to our goals- that is what goals are for. A good goal is a goal that makes you better than you were. A good goal isn’t one you reach, it’s one that makes you better. Striving or moving towards something without the pressure of getting there is actually good for our mental health and happiness.” I love this outlook and couldn’t agree more.
Personally, I’m much more productive and accomplish more when I set and work towards goals. Each month, I set 4 specific goals in the following areas- family, fun, fitness, financial. I have them written on the main calendar page of my planner and try to either schedule them in or plan what I need to do to make them happen. Today, I’m sharing two goal setting printables with you. There is one for everyday planning and one for more longer term goal setting.
This one above is for daily planning. Grab your cup of coffee, a few quiet minutes and the morning and plan your day. What needs to get done? What do you want to do to work towards a goal? How does your daily plan support the growth you want to make?
This longer term printable is for one specific goal. What big goal do you have? Then, how do you plan to make it happen? Part of the reason we don’t achieve goals is because you don’t make a plan on how to accomplish them. Think- when will you do it, how are you going to do it, who do you need to help make it happen and then the big one is WHY you’re doing it.
Another thing Jay Shetty said in a recent podcast is what do I need to grow in, in order to make specific goals happen. For example- discipline is where you’d need to grow if you want to eat better or stick to something. Growth and goals should go hand in hand, you can reach goals without making growth first.
