This year is finally coming to an end. What better way to start a new year than setting goals? Download this free printable to make 2017 your best year yet!
How is 2016 going for you? Have you accomplished all the goals you set for yourself at the beginning of the year? To be honest, I haven’t accomplished all of mine! But there’s still some time left to end this year on a good note.
As a matter of fact, the last couple of months of the year are usually my most productive ones. I guess it has something to do with being a procrastinator! It’s not something I’m proud of, but the rush of the new year around the corner fires me up to reach as many goals as I can before the year ends.
That is why I decided to make a free printable for goals that you want to accomplish right before, or if you prefer, during the upcoming year: 2017.
We have made a few printables for you guys before that are all about goals. You know why? Because we both believe that setting goals is an important key to success. And writing about your goals makes them feel more real and possible to achieve.
That is why we are constantly looking for ways to plan our short and long term goals, to make ourselves keep them in mind, take the necessary steps, and work hard for them.
This free printable can be used for goals that you want to achieve before 2017 begins, so you can have a clean start without worrying about goals you should’ve reached this year, or you can use it for goals that you want to work on during the new year.
This Goal Sheet has a goal itself! And that goal is to keep you motivated. So here are some tips to use it more efficiently.
How to use it
– Write 17 realistic goals for your time frame. For example, if you choose to use the sheet for goals before 2017, that means you have less than two months! Writing something like “Building a house” would not be realistic. I mean, if you actually can do that in less than two months, that’s amazing, but you get what I mean!
– Don’t just focus on difficult goals. Adding a few super easy goals (that are still important to you) can be a great way to keep you motivated. For instance, I could write something like “Finish reading the book I started”. That’s something that I would like to achieve, it doesn’t have to take too long, I already have the book, so that means I just have to sit down and read! If I only focused on difficult goals, getting through the list I wrote would take a very long time and I would probably just get frustrated and end up giving up on everything.
– Use the Notes section to add a little boost for yourself. Write what your reward will be after you finish, or a quote that is inspiring to you, or write about how accomplished you feel when you’re halfway through the list. Anything that will help you get through the day when you feel like throwing in the towel.
– Read what it says on the bottom. When your goals start to feel overwhelming, don’t give in to that little voice saying that you can’t do it. Believe in yourself!
– Keep it visible! Frame it (like this idea) or add it to a pinboard in your room. If you use a planner, you can adjust the sheet in an image editor to fit your planner’s size, print it, and add it to the start of the planner so you can find it easily and see it frequently.
