Peace & Love Everyone! I want to say, thanks for stopping by. I truly appreciate you taking the time to check out my page.
Today I wanted to talk about planning goals regularly. Some of us plan day to day, week to week or month to month. We all plan differently. I know a lot of people who don’t have a fancy journal or planner. Instead they use to do lists. We’re all different. What’s important is to get it done
I’ve been working out a plan to make me more consistent with planning and achieving my goals. I tend to forget and get lost in one activity to the next. There were more than a few days where I would jump from task to task without finishing more than one. I would be working on a task, remember something else and go to do it. I would jump from task to task not completing all of them and feeling tired by the end of the day, wondering why.
I don’t do that much anymore. I have a series of practices to prevent that. Not that it doesn’t happen at all. I’ve just learned how to focus it. So just a tip, when you find that happening to you, write down the tasks as they come to mind and finish what you are doing. Then you can move to the next task when you’re finished and so on. At the same time you won’t forget what needs to be done because you’ve written it down.
Now that’s not even what I came to talk about. It just came to mind, so I figured I’d include it. Today I wanted to talk about how I use a planning sheet to focus my achievements of goals.
I have several goal sheets in my shop that were created to keep me focused. I hope they will help you. I would create my goal list at the beginning of each year and start trudging towards each goal. But after a short time I would feel like the goal was too large and I would get lost in trying to figure out how to achieve it. My solution is actually 2 sheets, but they’re not always needed. One is the steps sheet and the other a to do list. Let’s talk about the steps sheet in this blog.
After I write my goals for the year I then use a steps sheet. This is to break down each goal. Sometimes you need to see the steps to make you goal clear. I have 2 sets of steps sheets, one is for short goals and the other is for the longer ones. You know, that large goal that has all the little details and actions necessary to complete it.
Let’s say, you want to grow your social media account. (Something I’m still working on) First you need to figure out what needs to be done to achieve the goal. That would translate into the steps. So let’s say we need to post more, and interact with people to build rapport. You can have a sheet for post and write down what post you’d like to do. Maybe research what’s trending. Write it down and check it off as you go. You can use it for any goal. You have to make sure that you break it down into smaller pieces (steps) so as not to overwhelm yourself.
What steps will you take to achieve your goal(s)?
Make sure to visit the shop for your stationary needs, including the goal planner. Of course, all it takes is paper, pen and a bit of time.
