Why I need a Goal Setting Worksheet
My life has been a bit chaotic lately. Between the treatment for Thyroid Cancer, both big kids having after school sports, a bad reaction to CT scan dye and a memorial service for my grandmother, I’ve been feeling so overwhelmed. Now that I’ve written that down I’m not surprised it feels like my life has gone off track!
This week I have been trying to refocus and plan out the week more. I’ve been just floating along, not really focusing on getting anything done and let my list build to a crisis point.
Of course, nothing ever goes to plan.
Monday my Mom’s car wouldn’t start and she borrowed mine, so I couldn’t go to the gym like I had hoped. Then last night the Toddler was up for three hours in the middle of the night so once again I didn’t make it to yoga class.
What has gone right though is my new goal setting worksheet. I’m focusing on one task each day. Today’s task is to write this post, so far so good!
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. When you complete it you will feel accomplished and ready to tackle something else.
A single goal helps build momentum.
I have space on my worksheet to write down three goals for myself and three goals for other people. This let’s me try and balance both my personal work, things for the family and work for my clients.
I also added space for general to-dos, notes, tracking my 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.

I have started filling it out at night before I go to bed. This let’s me get all those little thoughts and tasks out of my head so I can get to sleep. Then I keep it with me during the day so that I can refer back to it. The best part is, of course, crossing off the tasks as I complete them.
Am I the only one who writes down tasks after I completed them just so I can cross them off?
I’d love to know if you find this sheet helpful! Let me know in the comments.
