I’ve got some great Goal Setting Printables to share with you. These should help you outline your goals and achieve them easily in 2018.
I’m using these same goal setting worksheets for myself in the new year. I want to make sure I am doing all I can to set myself up for success. And I’d love that for my readers too, so I couldn’t keep this printable bundle all to myself!
FREE Goal Setting Printables
This set of printables for goal setting comes with a cover sheet that reminds you that “YOU GOT THIS!” If you are planning to make a goal planner in a 3-ring binder, you can use this as the page you slip into the cover. It’s a small motivational quote, but it’s a simple reminder that you should never give up on your goals!
Also included in this printable goal setting worksheet are two pages that help you stay on track. The first is a for each individual goal you have. Write the goal in at the top and give yourself a deadline just beneath. Then, write out the steps you need to take to reach your goal, and track your progress as you work toward each step.
You also have a weekly goal worksheet where you can see, at a glance, the things you need to work on. When you complete these goal setting printables week after week, you’ll start to notice how productive you are at reaching your goals. By keeping them together in a planner, you can look back on what you have already accomplished for motivation!
Setting SMART Goals in 2018
Ever since I heard about this approach in high school, I have loved the idea. Because, you know, who wants to be setting DUMB goals?!
Let’s take a look at the qualifications of a SMART goal…
Specific – Don’t go too broad with your goal. State what you plan to accomplish, and why. For example, instead of saying you want to lose weight, state you want to lose 50 pounds…and how you plan to do it. Use the goal setting printables to determine your specific goals.
Measurable – Decide how you plan to measure your success toward your goals. You should be able to list two indicators to know whether or not you have achieved your goals. Continuing the weight loss example, you can use the scale, fitness level, measurements, or clothing sizes to determine your progress.
Achievable – You must create a goal that is actually attainable! If not, you are setting yourself up for failure, which may discourage you from ever trying to reach a similar goal. For weight loss, don’t expect to lose 25 pounds in one month. Instead, err on the side of health and shoot for a more conservative 5 pounds per month.
Relevant – There needs to be a focus on the result of reaching your goal. How is achieving this goal important to you or your life? With weight loss, you may want to reach the goal to feel better, be healthier, or come off a certain medication.
Time-bound – Give your goal a time line. It should be one that can be attained, given that you work hard and stay focused. The 50 pound weight loss goal could have a deadline of 10 months (assuming 5 pounds a month like we stated earlier). Use the goal setting printables to set deadlines as well as track your progress toward the deadline.
These free printable goal setting worksheets work well for the idea of setting SMART goals for 2018. Print off a set for each large goal you have. Break each one into steps and give it a deadline. With this paper trail, you’ll notice you get more accomplished in the new year!
