This year…

I wanted to set some specific goals for each month so that I can break down my goals into smaller, attainable chunks.free-monthly-goals-printable

I also wanted to post them publicly here for accountability and also as an encouragement to set your own goals.

FREEBIE:  At the End of this post, find a FREE printable Monthly Goal Planner that I created for you.

Here’s 5 quick goal setting tips:

1. Write your specific goals down on paper…and review them daily.

2. Have a goal date written down on a calendar.

3.  Make your goals attainable…easy to achieve, but yet challenging enough that you’re making great positive changes.

4.  Don’t fret over failure. Don’t quit.  Pick up and start again from where you’ve left off.

5.  Read books that motivate you to set and achieve valuable goals!

7 Free Resources for Making Lists and Setting Goals:

- For creating new habits, Don’t Break the Chain is a good resource.  You X off each day you achieve your goal or succeed in your habit.  The idea is to create a loooong chain and not to break it by missing a day.  This is great for Bible reading, Praying, Staying away from sweets, spending time for yourself, etc.

- Set, Track, Share your goals:  Goalmigo

- Set your goals, Check S.M.A.R.T. criteria,  review your goals, track your progress:  Achievr.biz

- I personally use Trello.com and  Memonic.com to make lists and plan to-do projects.

I’m also a “paper” person.  I love having a visual, hard copy in front of me.  For this reason I’ve been using the same type of desk calendar each year.  The side area allows me to add scribbles.  I also jot down notes and prayer requests that I see on Facebook, etc.

Here’s the desk calendar I’ve ordered for daily to-do lists…
