It is never too late to create goals, plans or intentions for the year ahead, or check in on the goals you made and assess where you are at. However, if you want to create effective goals, keep reading! I follow the SMART goals template, which you can see used practically in this blog post.
Creating goals is such a useful exercise! I have created a worksheet to help us set realistic, achievable, effective goals. In the beginning, I set my intention or thesis statement for the year. This is just a broad overview of what my main goals are. After I write my intention, I break down that overarching idea into domains, under which I list discrete, manageable goals.
I think it is easier to reach your goals when they are smaller and more specific. This way you do all of the thinking ahead of time, and then you can just execute. You can use this worksheet for setting your own effective goals. This could be for the new year, or for any project you want to take on.
