What is this free printable about?
Goals. Plain and simple. Goals are what keeps us moving, and helps us become the kind of person we want to be. Without goals or ambition, we would be boring and purposeless. However, there is a big difference between setting a goal, and actually planning your actions in order to achieve that goal.
Writing about it is a must
Even though it is great to think and meditate about what goals you want to achieve, writing about them turns a simple dream into a real plan that will be achieved. This is because the act of writing makes your goal seem like something tangible, not just an invisible thought. It also helps your brain remember that goal and the steps you must take to complete it. Also, it will be a big motivation to act on it, and not just hope that someday that dream will come true.
Goal Planning Worksheet
This worksheet is designed to help you plan your goal and get inspired to actually achieve it.
First of all, you’ll have to define what it is. Be realistic. Whether it’s a long, or short term goal, make sure it is something that you really want. You will not feel motivated if it is maybe something to please someone else, or something that is actually impossible.
Set a deadline to make sure that your goal will be completed. If you just think that “someday” you’ll do it… you probably won’t.
Ask yourself why that goal is important to you. Remembering how important it is will inspire and motivate you to work for it, and not give up until it’s done.
Set an action plan. What needs to be done in order to achieve your goal? Feel free to cross out an action as soon as you complete it. This will help you feel good about the progress you are making, and will also motivate you to keep going.
It you need to add more steps for your action plan, or give yourself some words of encouragement, use the space available for notes.
As soon as you complete your goal, document your achievement. Writing the date will allow you to see if you remained within your ideal time frame, or if maybe it took a little bit longer than expected. Don’t feel bad about it. Just look at it as a learning experience. Maybe next time, when you set a goal with a similar level of difficulty you will give your self more time to complete it. On the other hand, if it was an easier goal, you will learn to be more focused and manage your time better next time.
Last but not least, reward yourself! You deserve it! Write out the reward to feel inspired along the way, and to remind yourself that you did a good job after you complete your goal. Celebration is an important part of the goal planning and achieving process.
