2022 Goal Planning

I am both genuinely shocked and completely honored that most people wanted to know how I goal plan for the year. I am a huge planner. I love to plan the year, month, week, and the day. It helps me stay organized throughout the work week and disciplined in my goals if I can anticipate what is coming. My plans do not always workout exactly as I planned them, but the beauty about being planned is that I am prepared when a shift needs to happen! I am going to go in depth with y'all on how I plan my year and link the tools that I use! No, I don't make any money if you buy them. I simply feel extremely passionate about how well they keep me organized. Note: if you are trying to save money this year as one of your goals you can use any notebook to do the same things I do! Let's get going!

My first step towards goal planning for the year starts with a basic notebook. I found mine at Target, but you can also find really cute and inexpensive ones at Marshall's, TJMaxx, and HomeGoods. You will use this notebook to kickstart your year, but you will also use it every single day until its completely filled up, so keep it in a safe place!

Step one: Write down 10 goals you have for the year. The trick here is to write them as if they have already happened to you! For example one of my goals this year is to start a YouTube channel so I wrote "I have my own talk show on YouTube." Anything you want to accomplish! It can be anything from gaining more confidence, being more intentional with friends, to running a multimillion dollar company. Dream big and manifest that shit.

Step Two: Pick one goal out of the ten to focus in on for the next 3 months. This is the goal you truly believe you can master in the first quarter of the year. The one you want to make happen the most! Look at all 10 of the goals you wrote and find out which one stands out to you. There is always one while writing that jumps off the page. This is the one you prioritize. Write it by itself underneath the ten goals you have set. (reference picture below)

Step Three: Write 5 things you are grateful for from the last 24 hours every single day. This helps you to stay in a positive mindset. People who are always grateful can never be mad. If you wake up in a bad mood one day I guarantee if you write 5 things you're grateful for from the day before your mood shifts. It is literally impossible to be grateful and angry at the same time. It can be anything! I wrote that I was grateful for hot cheetos because they are one of my top 5 favorite snacks. Anything that made you smile, or feel genuine joy.

This next part is a little more in-depth, but it will be the thing that keeps you the most organized throughout the year on the path to your accomplishments! First thing you did was set your goals and intentions for the year, now we plan them out! A goal without a plan is simply a wish. This next book I use is called the Priority Planner. You can snag yourself one there, or have an entirely different notebook to do this in each month, week, day! Whatever your heart desires. I like the priority planner because it only has three months so it helps you stay focused on that one BIG goal we picked out in the first part of our goal planning. Below I am sharing three photos of what mine currently looks like starting this year!

Step one: Monthly planning. On the calendar page you first fill out your calendar. Write in all of your important dates that you are already aware of. Then pick your power word for the month. A power word is one that motivates you and reminds you of your Why. Mine is consistency because my goal for January is to be more consistent in all areas of my life. Then I write the BIG goal I am focusing on and what smaller goal will get me closer in just this one month. (I know, it is a lot of goals) My BIG quarterly goal is to grow my online community because of how much I want to help people. My smaller goal to get me there in January is to build a better online presence. Make sense? It is okay if it doesn't! I backspaced a million times and rewrote that sentence because I started confusing myself. Literally considered making an online course just to learn to goal plan with me! An easier route would be to head to the forum to drop any questions you have!

Step Two: Weekly planning. This is where we get real deep into planning! Really zero in on the tasks we can be doing daily to get you closer to your goals. You want to write your three big deals for the week. What three big things do you have going on this week that are non-negotiable. Mine are getting this post written for you guys, consistency is my videos on instagram, and discipline with my gym days. Once those things are established you move onto your morning routine. This is my favorite part of weekly planning. It is the part that sets me up for the most success. You write down what each task you do for your routine in the morning and how long each task takes you. Then total the time up and it establishes what time you need to wake up in the morning to start your day successfully! For example: My routine takes about 2 hours. If I know I need to leave for work by 8am then I need to be up at 6am so I am not scrambling to get out the door! (I also have a nightly routine I have written down that sets me up for my morning routine, but thats a post for another day!)

Once your morning routine is established and you know what time you're getting up each day, you move onto your results. This just means what results you want to see at the end of the week. Do you have any plans already set, meetings you need to attend, parties for yourself or your kids, anything you have going on this week! Write it all down so you can see it here and then disburse them throughout each day of the week! It also allows you to check them off as the week progresses. Isn't it the best feeling to check something off your list?! Next up for your weekly planning is the top 5 tasks you can do this week to get you closer to your goal and how much time you will devote to it. The biggest excuse I hear from people about their goals/dreams is that they don't have the time. I am going to be really blunt right now and say that is complete and utter bullshit. there are 168 hours in a week. If you spend 8 hours a day sleeping and another 40 hours working that still leaves 88 hours. If you can't find 5 hours to devote to your dream then you obviously don't care about it that much.

This is where you plan out exactly what tasks you need to do to reach your goal, what day you can devote to each task, and how much time you can do. Then you be disciplined with that time. If your ultimate goal is to be at your best health and one of your tasks for the week is to meal prep on Sundays. Then you make sure you block out 1-2 hours to meal prep on a Sunday and stick to it! Lastly, the most fun part of weekly planning is to pick your pump up jam. Pick a song that always makes you wanna dance and sing. You play this song when you're feeling unmotivated and uninspired. It will instantly pump you up and remind you why you're going for that goal!

Step Three: Daily Planning. This is the easy part! All of that in-depth planning we did leads to this daily planning. Where you stick all of those tasks and time plans you made! This is where I write down what time I am waking up, what time I go into work and what time I leave work, what time I go to the gym, and any other tasks I may have for the day. All goes into my daily planning. I almost always have to make adjustments throughout the week due to my inherent lack of time management skills, but thats a goal I am always working on. If it would let me add the upside down smiley face emoji thats what I would put right now. I like that the daily page has me write an empowering belief about myself because every morning when I write this down it helps me to remember that I am human. That even on the days when I feel like I am not getting anywhere with my goals I am still a bad bitch. I have lofty goals to help the world by spreading kindness, giving people a space to be vulnerable, and helping people realize their true potential. I know I was put on this earth to help people and that is exactly what I am going to do.

Remember. Practice makes progression. You don't want to be perfect. Perfect is overrated. You want to always be progressing and learning. It is what makes life so exciting.
