Do you remember last exercise which included making a big 100 goal bucket list? You can download printable and read the post here. Did you found it easy? I didn’t. I still didn’t filled it all in! I’ve got most of the positions but not all of them. But I am going to finish it, one way or another.
So, if you already have few positions on your bucket list, it would be great to actually start making some progress on it. How, you’d ask? By setting GOALS.
A goal without a plan is just a wish.
So, to give you a little push towards your goal achieving I designed a printable to plan your goal properly.
How to fill it in:
It’s not really complicated, is it? I included two very important things with goal planning: date by when you want to finish it and why you want to achieve this goal.
Why is it important? Date by when helps to light a fire under your ass and the reason why helps you remember why you started, which keeps the motivation and the momentum going.
The big goal is pretty self-explanatory. Why ‘next actions’? Because big goals are scary. Your brain needs to split it into few smaller tasks, otherwise, you’ll just get overwhelmed and won’t start at all. Remember my posts about perfectionism? That’s what I mean.
So, for example, if your big goal is to work as a successful life coach – like mine, your ‘next actions’ are:
- Have a look through course offers;
- Find out about legal stuff of being self-employed as a life coach;
- Take a course;
- Perfect and write your own coaching program;
- Set up your own business.
Taking baby steps towards your goal is a great thing to do to get the momentum going on your big goal. Because they are easy to process and not so complicated, you still get to be happy and grateful for making a progress which is actually measurable.
Hope you will give it a shot and it works out good for you! 🙂 Let me know what’s your first goal in the comments!
