Create lists, use a digital planner, mind maps, a whiteboard, spreadsheets, are you a scribbler or Get to know planners and magazines and have a creative feel for planning – or do you want that?
What is your goal planning style ?!
My goal planning strategy didn't work for me …
So it's time for a change!
I've had a successful, profitable business for over 23 years, so what I do obviously works – at least to a certain extent. 😉
However, what I find is that no matter how productive or profitable my day is, I cannot achieve the BIG goals. Or I haven't made room in my schedule or routine for the things I really want to accomplish in my life and business.
Are you involved in the "daily newspapers" that only tick off tasks?
Mostly I am. 🙋♀️
I've been using Evernote for several years, mostly because it syncs EVERYTHING (all my projects, my shopping list, as you call it) on ALL my mobile devices and laptops.
It has many great features, including checklists, target templates and nested notebooks, so that all your projects are clear and easily accessible.
But lately I've been yearning for a more hands-on experience in goal setting and goal planning with more visual inspiration.
I keep Evernote (because it works!), But add practical paper journals and goal planners with lots of color and creativity. 🎨 – which proves that the fun is again due to the goal setting and project planning!
The following is currently distributed on my planning desk:
First my two FAVORITE goal setting planners …
By the way, I always choose UNDATED planners and magazines. What about you? Do you prefer a dated day planner style or something you can resume at any time without losing dating sites?
