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: Purple & Gold Weekly Happy Planner Layout

Looking for a gorgeous way to beautify your planners this Fall? Get this free printable weekly Happy Planner layout in purples & golds.

Here’s another pretty printable weekly Happy Planner layout!

When I created this weekly Happy Planner layout, it didn’t really occur to me what colors I used. It may seem like nothing but I’m from Minnesota…it’s football season…Minnesota Vikings, purple and gold (yellow)…SKOL. Yay. I’m not a football fan…in fact, we’re not sport people. I’ll watch the Twins play a game if I have tickets but I don’t follow them religiously.

Anyway, that is not why we are here. We are here for my weekly Happy Planner printable, with the pretty purple and gold colors.

Get your free printable purple & gold weekly Happy Planner layout. Pretty up your planners!

It’s looking like fall around here!

I thought this layout would go great with the theme of fall.  It kind of has some autumn-like colors in it and it makes me think of warm and fuzzy type of things. If you don’t want to use this during the month of October, I feel like this layout could also work during the month of November. It also has a kind of regal feel to it-maybe it is because there are damask and fleur de lis patterns in it. I always think of royalty when I see those patterns.

Purple & Gold Weekly Happy Planner Layout

Here’s what they look like up close. I apologize-my printer was being wonky and made this first page funny looking, I assure you that yours will not look as goofy as mine.

Goodness, I do love these colors! I had come up with 3 different ideas for this layout.  My bestie, who I always go to for advice, suggested I do this one. I am so glad I listened to her!

If you aren’t up for cutting out all the little pieces or if you want more of a certain element that is shown in these layouts, I have provided a file for those who want to make up their own layout with my creations! And you can use this tutorial from Jenn on how to correctly print directly onto your planner page!
