Several years ago I discovered this free goal worksheet and planner from Paul Myers of talkbiz. Interestingly, the first year I used the
goals worksheet I actually spent a good amount of time writing down my goals and planning what I wanted to accomplish for that particular year.
Well, within a week of my planning session I promptly forgot about my list and went about my year oblivious to my goals. When January of the next
year came around I resolved to once again do my list but this time follow through with it. I got out
my old goal planning worksheets to look over them figuring I could just about use last year's goal sheet. However, I noticed an interesting
thing. Even though I had not consciously set out to accomplish any of the goals I had originally written down, I actually had
achieved over one third of the goals on the list!
That speaks to the inherent power of even just writing down those goals. Of course, you
can accomplish even more if you actually connect tasks and timelines to your goals and actively check back on them!
Right click the links below to save the
PDF files to your computer. The Achieve Your Goals file explains how to use the worksheet. The worksheets file is actually one single file that contains
all the worksheets. You can choose to print out whatever particular pages of the goals worksheet you want to use and then fill in the worksheet
with your particular goals and dreams.
