Make It Your Best Year EVER

As I do every November — I spent a few focused hours doing a Year-in-Review assessment of the closing year AND setting goals for the coming year.

I’ve been doing this as a personal practice for more than a decade and have been coaching others to do this for more than a decade. Each year, I make tweaks and improvements as I see fit.

And I must say … that my newest Weekly Progress Template is my best, most cohesive, no BS version, to date! It’s the creme-de-la-creme of Weekly Progress Templates. 

I’m, of course, happy to share it with YOU – for you to adapt and use as you see fit, all in support of Your Best Year EVER!  

First, here’s a no-nonsense truth about goal setting: Goal setting, by itself, doesn’t work. Your goals and intentions must be paired with an ongoing, consistent, aligned, action plan – a way to stay in momentum with the intentions you’re setting out to accomplish and create.

That’s why, in addition to setting my 2018 goals, I have also blocked out time in my calendar (on repeat, the same day, same time, every single week) to fill out this new-and-improved Weekly Progress Template.

Here ’tis:

The Create Your Life! Weekly Progress Template

THREE Gratitudes/Celebrations From the Past Week:

Uno.)

Dos.)

Tres.)

JOURNAL after considering the following questions:

What went well this week? What didn’t go so well? How do I feel? Where might I have overcommitted? Where did I come up against resistance? What can I do different next week to better support my goals, dreams, values, and intentions? Where do I need support?

THEN, fill in this chart … 5 Life “Buckets” + 1 Specific Goal per Bucket + This Week’s Challenging-But-Doable Action Step

5 Life “Buckets”/ Categories of Focus For Your Year (e.g. Fitness, Travel, Creativity, Money, Love, Travel, Family …)

 Identify ONE 2018 Goal
for each “Bucket” (Be specific: “I will know I’ve successfully achieved this when ________.”)

This Week’s Challenging-but-Doable Action Step
to Move Closer to Your Goal For The Year 

1.

 

   

2.

 

   

3.

 

   

4.

 

   

5.

 

   

 

(So, to recap, that’s … 5 Categories of Focus, 5 Specific Goals, and 5 Action Steps for the week. Your Categories and Goals for the year will repeat, and your 5 Action Steps will be unique to the week. Fill in this chart, every week, to pinpoint your weekly steps to stay focused, aligned, and in forward momentum toward your annual goals. This, times 52 weeks, and just imagine what YOU can create!)

Then, last but not least …

IDENTIFY Three Core Desired Feelings for the week:  (E.g.: Grounded, Loving, Grateful, Focused, Peaceful…)

Uno.)

Dos.)

Tres.)

Boom. And you’re off. May 2018 be YOUR Best Year Ever!!
