This is my first post since the start of the new year, so I wanted to say happy 2018! Thanks so much for your support in 2017 – whether you purchased an item from my shop, followed me on social media, or left a comment. I truly appreciate you guys.
Since it’s a new year a lot of us are dreaming of achieving new things this year. Perhaps you want to lose a few pounds, get a new job, or learn how to paint.
Today I wanted to show you how easy it is to set and achieve your goals using the pages included in The Inspired Life Planner – my printable planning kit that contains everything you need to get your life organized this year. With more than 60 pages you’ll have the tools you need to remember tasks, keep track of important info and progress and plan your year.
I’ll be showing you exactly what pages you need to use, so if you haven’t purchased your copy yet, you can do so here.
Let’s get started! Here’s how you can achieve your goals using printable planner pages.
1. Set a SMART goal
Do you have a goal/s that you would like to accomplish in 2018?
A goal should be SMART:
Specific: “I want to make money” is too vague. “I want to make $10000 per month” is more specific.
Measurable: quantify your goal.
Attainable: be realistic by keeping your schedule and every day life in mind.
Relevant: to you and your life.
Time: set a date by which your goal will be achieved.
Use your Goal Tracker page to write down your big goals (page 3 in Goals and Planning PDF).
2. What steps do you need to take?
Divide your big goal into steps. These are the steps you need to take to achieve your big goal.
What needs to happen each month to reach your goal?
Using our income goal example, how many clients do you need to reach your income goal?
3. By when do you want to achieve this goal?
Write down a deadline by when you want to achieve this big goal. Don’t be too strict with yourself here.
4. Create mini goals
Break your goal into mini goals that you need to achieve each month.
By breaking down your goal into smaller goals it will be more manageable.
Add these mini goals to your Month at a Glance page (page 9 in Goals and Planning PDF).
5. Create tasks
To achieve those mini goals, you need to break them down into tasks. Using our income goal example, how will you “book 3 clients per month”? Your tasks may be “pitch my services to 10 potential clients a week” or “set up ads to promote my product”.
Add these tasks to your weekly planner (page 18 in Goals and Planning PDF).
6. Keep track of these tasks
If these are the types of tasks that you need to complete daily or often, add them to your habit tracker to easily keep track of your progress (page 16 in Goals and Planning PDF).
7. Log your achievements
Log your achievements onto your Achievements page (page 7 in Personal PDF).
It’s important to see how far you’ve come and this will motivate you to keep going.
Congrats! You’re on your way to making those big goals and dreams a reality. By using just printable planner pages you’ve created a system to help you set goals and work your way towards them.

Not quite sure if The Inspired Life Planner is right for you? Here is what others had to say about it:
This is a digital download and that is awesome…I only print the ones I need and can print them repeatedly. The quality is elegant yet classy…I don’t care for clutter and there isn’t any 🙂 Excellent customer service! I’m still amazed at how easy the transaction went and how quick I had my items. Looking forwards to seeing what else she creates! ~ Paula
Thank you so much for my inspired life planner – I’m in love! I spent so long trying to find a ready-bound product that had what I wanted and it just doesn’t exist. I tried designing my own planner but with a full-time job and no graphic design experience this didn’t work out so well…! Your printables are therefore perfect 🙂 ~ Francesca
