We’re heading towards the end of the year already, and even though you might be feeling unsure about what the new year will bring, there is a certain part you can take control over, and that is your own self-development, self-care, and the way you go about your days and your goals.
I’ve created a New Year Goal Setting Worksheet for you to learn from what you’ve gone through in this past year so you can set powerful intentions and goals for the new year!
Or watch me on YouTube right here:
First, you need to think about what goals are and why they are important. Goals are just ideas in your head, right? A goal is a vague idea of what you would like to achieve in your life, or just in this next year, but then everyday life gets in the way, things happen that interrupt your focus on your goals, and you just get too ‘busy’ handling with everyday challenges.
By the end of the day, you’re feeling exhausted from all the problem-solving, and as you are binge-watching Netflix, you’re not thinking at all of the actions you could take towards your goals, because you have no idea what they are.
And why do you have no idea what actions to take?
Well, you didn’t have a Goal Setting Worksheet like this one.
Goal setting is important because taking a moment to narrow down your goals so you know which actions to take will actually help you bring your goals to life. By imagining what it would be like when you reach your goal, and defining the specific steps that will take you closer to your goal, you help your brain see how achievable your goal is, and it will feel easier to actually jump into action.
I want you to read this twice: it is not the goal-setting part that you should stop doing, it’s the beating-yourself-up part …
You need to work on your perfectionism and the way you talk to yourself. Otherwise, you will never feel satisfied with anything you achieve, because you’re only focusing on what you have NOT accomplished (yet).
You also need to learn how to set more realistic goals.
In the New Year Goal Setting Worksheet I will help you not set goals that are too big, but to keep breaking your goals down into tiny steps that truly make a difference.
It’s about the progress you make every time you take action, not about reaching the destination by the end of the year.
Even when you don’t reach that exact goal, at least you took steps towards it, and you’re closer to achieving that goal than you would’ve been if you didn’t set any goals because you’re afraid you won’t achieve them.
Are we in this life to just live day by day? Accepting the circumstances? Instant gratification?
Or do you actually work for long-term results? Something that may take years and take consistent action?
I hope you can see now how important it is that you set apart one hour this week, create a moment of pure self-reflection, and go through this New Year Goal Setting Worksheet.
