Who can quite believe that it’s almost mid-December? December for me screams goal setting. So, I have designed for you, yes you’ve guessed it, a Goal Setting Worksheet to help you plan and set your goals in 2017.

Setting goals….

Last year was the first year that I set some personal goals. Most of my goal setting up to that point revolved around my corporate job in Compliance. Last December, whilst on maternity leave and recovering from a C-section, I was reflecting on my life over the past few years.

At the age of 31, I was left wondering what I had achieved in life so far and what was next. I knew I wasn’t happy working my 9-5. I knew I wanted to spend more time with my children. I knew wholeheartedly that both myself and my newborn were both lucky to be in this world after an extremely complicated pregnancy and even more complicated birth. I knew it was time to change the things in life that I wasn’t happy with and so I set myself some life changing goals.

In short, my goals for 2016 were to quit my corporate 9-5 job and run my planner business from home whilst I looked after my children. Of course, those goals were broken down into many other much smaller goals, action points, and strategies which took a lot of time to plan.

There is something about writing your goals down. I personally enjoy goal setting. I love achieving the goals I’ve set. It makes me feel good about myself and is a great confidence booster. Additionally, research shows that individuals who write their goals down are more likely to achieve them.

In December 2015, I was barely half the person I once was. I was suffering from a huge amount of anxiety, low self-esteem, and little confidence in myself.  My corporate job and the workplace bullying that I had been subjected to had worn me thin. I looked at my goals every single day and worked hard to reach them. Some days, I felt like I wanted to quit but I kept pushing through.

I tell you this not for sympathy, but to inspire you, because in April 2016 I walked into my workplace with my head held high and handed them my resignation. It was the most amazing feeling to leave on my own terms and know that my life was back on track.

Set yourself some goals for 2017….

Life is so short and the days pass by so quickly! I encourage every single one of you to live life to fullest and follow your dreams. A dream is only a dream without a plan and that is why I am sharing this free Goal Setting Worksheet with you. If you have a dream, no matter how big or small, write it down and start working towards your dreams.

I have a two quotes that I live my life by now:

  • “ If you don’t build your own dreams, someone will hire you to help them build theirs” – Tony Gaskin
  • “Dream big, start small but most of all start” – author unknown

I truly believe that you can achieve whatever you set your mind to. Have faith, be courageous, and be true to yourself and your dreams.

SMART goal setting….

I have written here in the past about SMART Goal Setting. In fact, it was the subject of my very first Planner Squad blog post. The SMART Goal Setting principle is amazing and it will help you to set realistic goals that you can work towards achieving. The free SMART Goals Assessment booklet that I designed for the Planner Squad talks about how to set SMART goals. I recommend reading that blog post and downloading the free workbook so you can be confident in setting SMART goals.

Free Printable Gratitude Log For Your Planner

Find out how to use this free printable gratitude log in your planner to help you remember & focus on all that you have to be thankful for!

Since this past weekend was Thanksgiving weekend, I wanted my freebie inserts to be themed around gratitude. This week’s freebie insert is this undated Gratitude Log. With that in mind, I thought I’d do a little bit of a different post and share with you some of the things I am grateful for.

I am grateful for;

  • My family – my husband and my two gorgeous boys
  • My friends near and far
  • The roof I have over my head
  • Enough money to feed and clothe my family
  • The support from my husband in my business adventure
  • The chance I was given to say a final goodbye to my mum
  • The past (good and bad) because it gave me the life I lead today
  • The Planner Community for supporting me in realizing my dreams
  • The sleepless nights my boys give me because it means I get even more cuddles
  • My health
  • Being able to stay home with my boys and getting to watch them grow up
  • Dr P for diagnosing and treating my endometriosis and enabling me to become a mum

This year I have made huge changes to my life. I was very unhappy working my 9-5 job and missing out on my son growing up. Like a lot of families, modern day living had made it impossible for me to stay home.

In 2015, I fell pregnant for the second time but this pregnancy was not straight forward. Due to Placenta Previa, I spent my whole pregnancy on edge. Following a hugely complicated C-Section delivery, I was left feeling more grateful for my life and those people in it than I’d ever felt before. I decided there and then that life is far too short and decided to make some major changes in my life. I resigned from my job and focused on my Etsy store full time so that I could stay home with my babies.

Resigning from my corporate job was just the first step I took. My corporate job had worn me down and washed me out.  I have spent a lot of time this year rebuilding my confidence and practicing mindfulness and positivity. I was mostly a “my glass is half empty” kind of girl.

I have really enjoyed the road to rediscovery. Next year, I plan to make a point of journalling my gratitude and keeping a daily photo journal to remind me of all the every day things that I should be grateful for that I quite often over look.

Free Printable Future Log Planner Inserts

Who can believe that 2016 is almost over and done with? This is usually the time of year the Planner Community starts thinking about their planner set ups for the coming year. With this in mind, I thought I’d share a great functional tool that I have been using for next year – The Future Log

.

Why The Future Log For Your Planner?

If you are like me, towards the end of the year you are itching to get your planner set up and ready for the new year. The problem is that once you have your planner set up exactly how you want it, you find yourself fighting the temptation to start using it.

I use a Future Log to help me start planning for the following year without the need to break open my new planner early. I simply use the Future Log in my current set and migrate it across at the beginning of the following year so that I can continue to use it throughout the year.

Here’s How I Use The Future Log

I use the Future Log to make note of the important dates that I need to remember for the new year ahead. I avoid using the Future Log for birthday’s since I usually migrate the Celebrations Planner across to my new set up once the year is over.  I do, however, write down important business related items and deadlines, school holidays, special events and anniversaries. Since I am really superstitious, I don’t physically write anything in my planner for the year ahead until January 1st and so using a Future Log really helps me get organized ahead of time.

Free Printable Planner Note Pad

This free printable + tutorial is such fun! DIY planner note pad-great way to get organized & beautify your planners.

Hello Squadettes, I am back on the blog today with something a little different. Today’s printable is this free printable Planner Note Pad.  I am going to walk you through step by step to show you how to make it so you can use this in your planner.

What you will need to make this free planner note pad…

First off, lets talk about the supplies you will need to make this free planner note pad. The supplies are pretty basic but if you don’t have some supplies on hand, I will list some alternatives supplies you can use.This free printable + tutorial is such fun! DIY planner note pad-great way to get organized & beautify your planners.

 

  • 20 printed copies of the free printable note pad (the link for the download is at the bottom of this post)
  • Bone folder (you can also use an old credit card)
  • A pencil or something you can use to mark out measurements
  • Ruler for measuring
  • A craft knife for trimming the free printable note pad down to size (alternatively you can use scissors)
  • 2 x thick card to make the back of the note pad (A5 = 5.8 cms wide by 18.7 cms in height. Personal size = 6.8 cms wide by 15.5 cms in height)
  • 1 x coloured or patterned card stock (optional) (A5 = 17 cms wide by 21 cms in height. Personal size = 19 cms wide by 17.2 cms in height)
  • PVA glue
  • Hole punch (optional)

How To Make The Planner Note Pad

If you want to make your planner note pad look the same as pictured above, follow the instructions below. Measurements will vary depending on whether you are using the personal sized version or A5 size of of the free printable planner pad. The measurements for both personal size and A5 are noted above. The measurements can be changed according to your needs and, of course, you can choose to do something completely different.  Feel free to be as creative as you like with this project!

1. Start by measuring and cutting your coloured card stock and thick card stock in accordance with measurements noted above. This will form the base of the planner note pad. The coloured card is folded in half and creased using a bone folder.

2. Next, print and cut the free printable planner note pad using the link below and cut them down to size using a ruler a craft knife.

3. Place each of the two planner note pads to the thick card stock making sure all the edges are flush and keep them together using two bulldog clips per planner note pad.

TIP: Place the bulldog clips as close to the top as possible as this will help the glue bonding process and ensure the papers stick together.

4. Apply a coat of PVA to the top rim of each planner note pad. This will keep the planner note pads together and create the gummy glue that you find on note books that you purchase from stationery store. Once glue has been applied, leave both planner note pads to dry thoroughly.

TIP: Don’t be afraid to be generous with the glue at this point. You do not want your planner note pad paper breaking away too easily.

5. Once the planner note pads are dry, attach them to the coloured card stock base. I used double sided tape for this part of the process but you could also use glue. Remember to hole punch the coloured card stock so you can place it inside your planner.

TIP: I suggest hole punching the colour card stock before attaching the planner note pads. Remember to keep the coloured card stock folded a you hole punch them to ensure both parts are hole punched. Hole punching the coloured card stock first will help you ensure the placement of the planner note pads is correct as you attach them. Attach the desired planner note pad to the front of the coloured card stock.

6. Attach the second planner note pad to the reverse of the coloured card stock and place it in your planner.

And, there you have it….

Your very own DIY planner note pad! You can place this at the front of your planner to use when needed. If you use the standard week on two pages and you find you have no where to jot down random thoughts or non-date specific tasks, then you could place this in-between your current week and use it at will.

Free Printable Savings Tracker For Your Planner

Now, you have a great way to keep track of your savings in your planner! Use these free printable savings trackers to help with your financial planning & budget.

Hello Squadettes,

Is it me or does the start of the school year feel like another “New Year”?

September has always felt like a fresh start for me and I guess that stems from my childhood school days. My favourite part of the year was returning to school. I didn’t like school all that much but returning to school meant stationery shopping. Need I say more?

Use this free printable savings tracker in your planner to keep track of your budget!

Looking ahead…..

I have already spent a lot of time this month reviewing my goals and setting some new ones. I have even been thinking about my planner set up for 2017. With only 4 months left of this year, it seems appropriate and I know these next few months will fly by.

This year has been an incredible year for me. I’ve always dreamed of owning my own business and this year I finally got the chance to follow that dream. I am already looking forward to seeing what 2017 brings and I know that focusing on what I want to achieve in 2017 starts with whats in my planner by way of paper and pen.

I love functional planning, I do. But, sometimes it feels oh so serious which is one of the reasons why I like to design and use colourful and fun planner inserts. Like most of the planner inserts I design, they stem from a need of some kind and this weeks free printable is no different.

I mentioned in my recent post that my husband and I had been doing some finance planning. We set our savings budgets for 2017. Each budget is separated and broken down according to each project. We have a lot to save for next year. I have already set up my functional Savings Trackers but I needed something to visualise our progress on each project and so I set up this free printable Savings Tracker.

This free printable savings tracker is a fantastic addition to your planner! Great for staying on top of your budget & financial planning.

Free Printable Savings Tracker

The free printable savings tracker comes in personal size and A5 size. Each insert comes with a number of bar charts. Each bar chart represents a savings project. Each bar chart is broken down into segments with each segment representing a monetary increment. Each segment increment is blanks so the monetary increments can be specific to the individual project as shown in my example below. The idea is that you colour each segment as you reach each incremental goal.

I used this same idea way back when I attempted to bullet journal and it was a fun way to visualise progress on certain projects. As much as I love the concept of the bullet journal, I just didn’t have the time to set it up.  As a perfectionist, I couldn’t stand imperfect pages and the lack of order bothered me somewhat. As a mum of two boys, my time is fairly limited and this is why I reverted back to using a ring bound planner with functional and structured planner inserts.

I hope you guys enjoy using this free printable Savings Tracker and that it’s a fun alternative to simply logging deposits as you make them.
