Why I need a Goal Setting Worksheet
I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed with my to-do list lately and decided to make some changes before it got completely out of hand.
Last week I decided what I really needed was more space in my day. I vowed to stay off of electronics from 2pm until 7pm. I wrote it down and made it my daily goal. You know what? It was amazing! I read a book, gardened, played with the kids and made much healthier dinners.
I thought a lot about why it worked so well and decided that it was because I didn’t feel like I was constantly working. Instead, I felt like I had time to spend on anything but work. I going to continue this goal again this week.
The other new thing is I’ve set up Sunday nights from 7-9pm as planning time and I’m trying to plan out the week beforehand.
This means sitting down with my calendar, to-do list and my Weekly Goal Setting Worksheets. These worksheets have been amazing! Instead of creating one big to-do list for the week I am planning out which day I will work on which project.
So instead of looking at one long list, I can just look at the day’s tasks. It’s kind of like how I used my bullet journal, but I don’t have to create the page each day, I just print out a week at a time.

How choosing one goal can help you
Picking one thing that is important to do each day is such a good way to build momentum. Set that goal down in writing and then start work on it first thing. Set a time for 20 minutes and see how much you can get done. When you complete it you will feel accomplished and ready to tackle something else.
A single goal helps build momentum.
There is space on the worksheet to write down important tasks, plus plan out my morning work, afternoon work and evening plans.
I also added space for a daily meal plan, tracking water intake and a daily self-care task.
It is so important to take a few minutes for yourself each day, but truthfully if I don’t make it a priority it never happens. So now I think about my day and write down something that will fit in with my plans. I am much more apt to actually take the time for self-care when it is planned out.
