Goal setting, planning, and creating habits is not just a once a year activity. While we tend to focus on it at the start of a new year, it’s important to continue the process throughout the year. In this episode, I’m sharing some practical tools and tips that you can use to get all your dreams, ideas, and plans off the page and into your life, as well as tools to keep up with the habits you are developing.
Remember that these are tools that have worked for me, but what’s important is what will work for you. Don’t feel like you have to use all the tools I share here. You might decide to do something totally different so this episode may simply be a starting point to help you.
My five favorite goal-setting and planning tools:
Trello is a free online project management tool, and you can also use it as an app on your phone. There are other similar tools out there, such as Asana and Basecamp. I’ve tried and used some of these, but Trello has been the one I’ve fallen in love with.
Okay, this might seem silly, but yes, pen and paper are still one of my favorite tools for goals, planning. I use pen and paper to brain dump, get my ideas out, do some mind mapping, and draw, connect, map out a plan on paper and then translate into Trello.4. PHYSICAL PLANNERS
In the past, I’ve used a gorgeous planner from InkWell Press. This year, I’m using the 2019 Essential Daily Planner from Amazon because it has the daily, monthly and weekly views. so that I still have space for what I’m doing each day. Another paper option is bullet journaling. Some people use a basic blank notebook and create their own planners or calendars. This is called bullet journaling, and it can work really well for some people!
5. GOOGLE CALENDAR
When it comes to knowing what appointments I have and how my time is planned for the week, I am a die hard fan of Google Calendar.
