Are you into setting goals? At the start of each year, I set out to make some changes and hopefully do things a bit better than I did the year before. One thing that helps me is if I write it all out. I need a plan! For me, the key to success is having plenty of reminders and visual aids to keep me on track. Here are the goal setting worksheets that I use.

I found I often forget to check my goal planning worksheet and then get way off track. To remind me on a daily basis what I am working toward and to remind myself I can do it I fill a couple of these cards weekly, cut them out and place them where I can’t miss them on a daily basis. These little reminders do wonders to keep me focused on my daily goal and also the longterm goal.
You’ll find some of these cards on my bathroom mirror, inside a frequently opened cabinet door, on my computer and in my car to keep me motivated and remind me why my goals are important to me. What important goal do you have in your life?
We all need to be reminded we can do it. I know you can. On these cards, I write my specific goal and keep it where I can see it everyday!
Make sure you keep the specific tasks on your weekly planner even ifyou have multiple goals that you are working towards! It is the small tasks that you accomplish over the days and the weeks that add up to the big goal accomplishments over the months and years!
