Wanting to make New Year’s resolutions is great, but sometimes it’s hard to focus in on what goals you should aim for. Or which might be most reasonable to tackle. Or even what direction you want to go!
Enter: an easy goal worksheet. Before you make goals for next year, it’s good to reflect on the past year, which will help give you clarity for where you’re headed in the future. Treat this as a brainstorming session, and you can hone the list more through reflection and conversation with close friends and family.
Grab a piece of notebook paper, and give it the following headings:
1. Favorite memories
2. Things I’m grateful for
3. Hard lesson learned
4. Thing I did this year I’m proud of
5. Places I want to go
6. Ways I can help others
7. Things I want to get better at
8. Things I’m looking forward to
9. New things I want to try
Take an evening, an afternoon, or some quiet time in the morning to think about and jot down some answers. Think of at least one thing for each spot, but no more than three. Pin the list up somewhere you can see for a few days. Then, mark any that might be for the future, or will take some more research first. Highlight two or three goals you’d like to make happen in 2017. Jot down a few first steps to get to the goal. And get to it!
Moving toward your goals might involve some healthy living decisions. If you have any questions you’d like to talk about with a doctor, or something you’ve needed to get checked for awhile, schedule a visit today by clicking below. We look forward to hearing from you!
