I don’t know about you guys, but I LOVE when a new year rolls around and it’s time for a fresh start and New Year’s Resolutions!  I love to look at the year to come as a blank slate, full of possibility.  This year we have the PERFECT printable pack to help you achieve your dreams!

This year we are all about GOALS and we have got you covered with the BEST goal setting printables around to get next year off to the best start yet {and keep it that way all year long}!  With the help of Kristin at CdotLove {If you have not seen her Etsy shop check it out!  She is seriously AMAZING!} we have created an entire year’s worth of goal setting templates, to-do lists, brainstorming guides, and monthly trackers for you to print and follow.

Complete set of printables for planning, finance, goal setting, meal planning, and more from www.thedatingdivas.com

I'm in LOVE with these adorable printable monthly goal sheets from www.thedatingdivas.com

First things first, print out this wonderful pack and let the fun begin!  The object is to first pull out our brainstorming worksheet & planning guide {see below} and let those creative juices flow.  Set a Timer for 5-10 minutes and write down all your thoughts, hopes, aspirations, dreams, things you have always wanted to change or learn.  The sky is the limit here!  Write down absolutely everything!   Any new year’s resolutions that come to mind.  You really can do anything you set your mind to, I promise!   If you need a little inspiration we have given you a long list of what we call “monthly focuses” {more on those later} that can help you to brainstorm different areas of your life you would like to work on, improve, or change.

After you brainstorm, you’ll have a better idea of a year of goals you would like to set for the future.   Now it’s time to put together your vision board.  A vision board is a visual reminder for you to place somewhere where you can look at it often and see what you hope to achieve in the future.  You can pick a category for each square {we have provided several ideas under our monthly focus list} OR just create a collage of dreams.  Pull out old magazines and cut out pictures, if you’re artistic draw your dreams, print pictures from your computer, or simply write out your dreams.  The possibilities are endless!  This vision board is for you!  Fill it up whatever way gets you excited about your year of goals and will help you to visualize what you are hoping to achieve.  Once it is finished hang it somewhere where you will see it often like on your bathroom mirror or dresser.  If it’s too personal to you and you don’t want others to see it, keep in your nightstand.  Whatever works for you!

Your next task is to pick 12 of those monthly focus categories we mentioned previously.

Get your home organized more easily with these awesome printables from www.thedatingdivas.com

You are going to dedicate one month to each of those choices {Be flexible here.  If you have A LOT of health/fitness goals break them into different sections for example one month could be “health/fitness: healthy eating,” the second “health/fitness: working out” etc.}.  We’ve even included a motivational quote each month to keep you going!  In our opinion it’s easier to break down goals this way and truly focus on making a change.  They say it takes 30 days to form a habit and that is why you are going to dedicate 30 days focusing on one section of goals.  For your monthly focus it may be easiest to pick one larger goal and then break it down into smaller daily/weekly goals you are going to work on.  For example:

Monthly Focus: Health/Fitness

Goal: Eat healthier each day

1. Drink 8 cups of water a day

2. Only eat sugar once a week

3. Do not eat after 7 P.M.

4. Eat 3-4 fruits and vegetables daily

This way you are sure to achieve your goals by making sure they are S.M.A.R.T.

This new year it's time to get organized and make your goals SMART with these helpful goal printables from www.thedatingdivas.com

Does that acronym ring a bell for anyone?  In our year of goals we offer you a little refresher on how to set a good goal and the guidelines it should follow in order for it to be S.M.A.R.T, be sure to glance back often at this sheet when setting your goals.  We want them to be:

  • S- Specific: When setting your goals, be as specific as possible.  This will help make achieving your goals easier.  You will know exactly what you are trying to accomplish and how.  What is the purpose of your goal?  How is it going to benefit you?  What are the requirements and restraints?
  • M- Measurable: How Often?  How many?  When?  Once again be specific so each day when you are tracking your goal you know how to track your process.  From our example above I mentioned drinking EIGHT cups of water A DAY, eating THREE to FOUR vegetables A DAY.
  • A- Attainable: How can this be accomplished?  Make sure it is realistic.  Have a plan as to how you are going to do this each and every day.
  • R- Relevant: Think back to your brainstorming worksheet here.  Is this goal going to help to achieve other goals and purposes?  Your different monthly focuses?  Is it the right time in your life?  We want you to dream big and set the bar high but we also want you to not overwhelm yourselves!
  • T- Timely: What is the deadline?  When are you going to do this.  My best advice is to set goals that you can do daily or weekly.  Make these goals habits that are easy to track.

What a great way to make & organize your goals each month for the best year yet in 2015 from www.thedatingdivas.com

Once you set your goals, be sure to write them down for each month and track them!  Hold yourself accountable BUT don’t beat yourself up if you miss a day every once in awhile.  It happens to all of us!  What matters is that you try each and every day and that you take notice of your progress and be proud of yourself!  Setting goals and making changes is hard work but totally worth it!

Stay organized and achieve your goals in 2015 by breaking your goals into monthly focuses with these adorable printables from www.thedatingdivas.com

After 30 days, the hope is that your goal has become a habit and you can then move on to focus on a new section of your life.  Still keep up your old goals and even still track them if it helps!  We have also provided quarterly review sheets to help you think back about the goals you have set, progress you have made, and new changes you need to make.  The purpose of this is to keep you on track and on your way to achieving your dreams!

Have a hard time keeping track of your goal progress every year? Get organized in 2015 with these goal setting guides from www.thedatingdivas.com

To help you track your progress and remember your goals along with the monthly tracker we have included daily and weekly to-do lists for you to organize your time, a bill tracker, a gratitude journal, and a menu planner.  These extra guides will help you to achieve your different monthly goals and focuses.  And did I mention they are ADORABLE?  Seriously, SO cute!  You can thank us later!

I love using these adorable gratitude printables from www.thedatingdivas.com to help me achieve a more grateful 2015!

Some meal planning inspiration to achieve those goals in 2015 from www.thedatingdivas.com

Next year really is going to be the best year yet!  We want you to know that you truly can accomplish whatever you set your mind to.  Remember that it isn’t going to be easy.  Especially at first!  Sometimes it may seem overwhelming and even a little scary but in the end it will be worth it.  If it helps you, while filling out your monthly goal, set rewards for yourself along the way.  For example, 7 days straight of drinking 8 glasses a day of water = a hot Bubble Bath and your favorite Book while your hubby or wife watches the kiddos, 6 days of eating all of your fruits and vegetables = a dessert of your choice on day 7 and you enjoy it WITHOUT feeling guilty!  Cater your monthly goal sheet to fit your needs and keep yourself motivated.  Be proud of your progress no matter how small and don’t let those bad days get you down!  Look at each day as a fresh start and an opportunity to once again achieve your goals!  We would love to hear about your progress so feel free to always refer back to this post and leave us a comment or two!  We’ll be your cheerleader when you need a little motivation (;   Remember you CAN DO IT!

I know you already have the ideas flowing!  Get everything you need to make next year rock for only $3.97!

  1. I have been anxiously awaiting this post! Setting goals is a huge help in my life. I love all of your suggestions and insight in goal setting. This is by far the best goal setting packet ever!!! xox

  2. I love love love these! But I don’t think I will be purchasing them because they don’t come in different sizes. Is there any way you could offer them in sizes that would fit a personal sized filofax?

  3. Love this! I am so excited to print them off. Your website said “transaction declined’ when I tried to purchase, but the purchased was charged to my account. Will I still receive it? Please help! I am so excited to get started!

  4. Hello – I ordered these, and then nothing happened. I have not received an email with a link & it took me back to the home page. I have checked my junk folder & everything.

    Thanks!

  5. Dear Divas,

    I’ve ordered my first set of printables the Year of Goals Printable. After downloading I’m not able to open it due to the “file is damaged”. So the Adobe Reader cannot open it.

    Trying download again today the link is already expired.

    Could you please check what is wrong with the file?

    I’m really exciting about this Printable.

    My order number: # 17718

    Thanks!

  6. My husband and I are huge believers on goal setting! Keeping long term expectations in mind and breaking them down to tasks that are doable to get you to where you want to be. We have already done all of out sessions and brainstorming, but these would have been so nice to have! I know they will really help impact peoples lives who need a little guidance on how to set and accomplish goals. Thank you for the work you ladies continue to do!

  7. I am super excited about these printable but have not received them through email yet. How long should I expect it to take? I have already been billed. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Molly

    1. Hey Ronda! So sorry for the late reply. This printable pack is great for any year – it does mention 2015, as in “2015 is going to be the best year yet!”, but there aren’t any calendars or info specific to 2015. So get plannin’ and goal setting for 2016! 😉
