Goal Setting Workbook FTW!

Setting goals for yourself and your business is like a magic sauce that helps you focus.

It forces you to look at the big picture and work towards something, instead of just working.

And starting on setting your goals now gives you some time to really think about where you want to go and when you need to get there.

So how the heck do you set goals?

Well, first you download the sweet goal setting workbook I made for you. Just enter your name and email in the box and I’ll send you the link ASAP. Go ahead…I’ll wait…

Think BIG

Now, you need to start envisioning where you want to be by the end of the year. I’ve given you three categories to start setting goals in, Personal, Professional and Family. You can choose goals in each category or just focus on one or two.

Think hard about the big picture. What would getting to your goals mean for you and your family? Think about what would change in your life if you reached your goals.

The first section of your Goal Setting Workbook is the Yearly Goals page where you are going to write those big goals down. You need to think big here and write no more than three goals in each category.


Because you will be breaking these down into smaller, more manageable projects and you don’t want to be overwhelmed with tasks.

Ok, got that page all filled out? Great!

Grab your 2018 Goal Setting Workbook and set BIG goals for the year! Break them down by yearly goals, quarterly goals, and monthly goals. #goals #goalsetting #planner

Break it down

Next, you are going to find the Quarter One Goal page. This page is where you are going to write down the first step in reaching your big yearly goals. This won’t be a specific task, but a project or smaller goal that leads to the bigger goal.

I feel like we need examples…

Ok, your big goal for the year is to start making $1000 a month. You would write that down on the Yearly Goal page. On the Quarter One Goal page, you would start listing projects that could make you money.

You might list:

  1. Make 12 hats
  2. Start Etsy store
  3. Start a blog

These are projects that can start making you money but they are not specific tasks. That’s the next page…

The Monthly Goal Pages are where you write out your tasks. So Quarter One in January, February, and March. In January you would focus on making your fabulous hats so that you had products to sell. For February you would focus on launching your Etsy store full of your fabulous hats. Then March you would start your blog all about why your hats are so fabulous.

So each month should have an overall focus and the months in each quarter should work together to get your Quarterly Goals done.

Then your Quarterly Goals all work together to get your Yearly Goals done.

Neat, huh?

Goal Setting Workbook for 2018

That pesky final step

Now, the last important part is to review your work at the end of each month, quarter and year. This will help you to see where you are succeeding and where you need to make some changes.

I’ve very nicely included space for that in the workbook. You’re welcome! (That was totally sung in Maui’s voice)

So, the simple version is

Big goals = Yearly Goals

Smaller goals = Quarterly Goals

Tasks = Monthly Goals

Then review.

Simple, easy and it works!

  2. I like that you mention setting goals for those 3 categories of your life. As a mom, you have to remember to develop yourself as a person and keep the family moving in the right direction. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I struggle with forgetting to take care of myself if I don’t make it a priority, so that was an important addition for me.
      I hope you enjoy the workbook!
