These goal planning worksheets help you set meaningful, achievable goals that matter to you. That’s way better than randomly pointing yourself in the direction of your goals and hoping you achieve them at some point in the future.
Use These Goal Planning Worksheets to Set SMART Goals
All goals are not created equal. The goals we’re most likely to achieve have certain characteristics in common. Those characteristics are known by the acronym SMART. SMART goals are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound.
When you set a goal, ask yourself these five questions to figure out if you’ve set a SMART goal:
- Specific – What do you want to achieve with this goal?
- Measurable – How will you know when you’ve achieved this goal?
- Achievable – Is this a realistic goal?
- Relevant – Why do you want to achieve this goal?
- Time-bound – When will you achieve this goal?
If you can’t answer these questions with a clear and precise response, keep working on defining your goals. The better you are at defining your goals, the better equipped you’ll be to make a plan to actually achieve them.
SMART Goal Planning Worksheet PDF
I’ve included a simple, but effective SMART goal planning worksheet to help you define your goals. You’ll start by defining your start and end dates and the overall duration of the goal. You can state the duration in days, weeks, months, or whatever timeframe works for your goal.
You’ll also write the goal down. Writing things down helps your brain remember things and helps it focus on what’s important. And both of those things are important to achieving your goal.
Use the Goal Challenge Sheets to Track Your Progress
Once you’ve defined your goal, it’s time to get to work. Tracking your progress toward your goal can help you stay focused and motivated.
The goal planning worksheet includes three goal challenge pages:
- 30-Day Goal Challenge
- 60-Day Goal Challenge
- 90-Day Goal Challenge
To use the challenge pages, add your start and end dates. Then add a checkmark or fill in the circle as you complete each day of your goal challenge. You can also add notes at the bottom of each page.
Use the 30-Day Goal Tracker for Planning and Monitoring Your Progress
Enter your start date and end date on the challenge page. Also, write down what you will do each day to work toward your goal. At the end of each day, write down what you did to help you get closer to achieving your goal.
You can plan your daily tasks ahead of time or at the beginning of your day. Do whatever makes sense for the goals you’re working on.
