Free Download Goal Planner by Core Opulence

What is a goal planner?

A goal planner is a great way to get your thoughts out of your head and on paper! With my anxiety, I stay up late thinking and over-thinking, but I have learned it is best to write my thoughts down. Rather than storing thoughts in my mind and constantly running through them, writing them down allows me to externalize the issue at hand and manage my thoughts from the outside.

To support a healthy mind. I write my goals down each month and check back in with myself regularly to see if I am on track.

How to use a goal planner?

You can easily write down your wants, needs, desires, and goals without a goal planner. However, I think having a template as a prompt can encourage a clear, focused vision of your goals and how you can achieve them.

A goal can be anything from small to large, easy to difficult, which means some goals might take longer than other to achieve. This is all normal and to be expected so do not feel discouraged if you feel unmotivated or behind on your goal setting.

How to choose a goal:

My advice is to look at where you are now and prioritize which goals you want to focus on first. Some questions to ask yourself include:

  1. Do I have a skill I want to develop or gain? Training? Career development? Hobby?
  2. Is there knowledge I want to pursue? Higher education?
  3. Are my relationships balanced? Do I have toxic relationships?
  4. Am I happy with myself? My mind, body, spirit?
  5. What behaviors do I have that are impacting me, or others around me, that I want to change?
  6. What stress am I experiencing at this time?

For example, some top priorities can include:

  1. Applying for a new job
  2. Building a savings account
  3. Having a consistent workout routine
  4. Improving sleep quality

What can you do TODAY to help achieve your goals?

Small steps every day add up. It is important to realize you are capable of achieving your goals and getting to the finish line, but it takes work and inner-strength. Ask yourself: What can I do to achieve my goal? In the case of looking for a job, perhaps making a CV/ resume would help, or in the case of improving sleep quality, you could do some research on ways to get to sleep at a decent hour.

You can be a great problem solver! Test out your ability and see what you can come up with. Make a path to get you from where you are at now to where you want to be.

What are your areas of focus?

This is a different, or more simplistic, way of viewing your goals. After reflecting on what you want to prioritize, discover what category your goals belong to. For example, if your goal is to to clean your bedroom the category would be ‘home.’

Other areas of focus may include but are not limited to:

  1. Myself
  2. Relationships / love
  3. Finance / income / wealth
  4. Career
  5. Creative
  6. Knowledge / Learning
  7. Travel
  8. Family
  9. Home

By breaking your goals down to smaller bits, you can sense your goals are easier to manage. I believe this helps me feel less overwhelmed with a task when I focus on one category at a time.
