Welcome back to Business & Budgets! I hope you are off to an amazing start with your plan of action that you have put in effect for the new year. If you haven't checked out part I of Failing to Plan, Is Planning to Fail Part I, check it out here! In this post we will cover the different types of goals you should set for yourself. I also have attached a few worksheets to help you plan your goals and track your progress.
There are 5 different types of goals you should plan for a well rounded strategy. These five categories are:
Personal Goals: How do you want to look and behave
Family, Friends & Relationship Goals: How do you want to relate and communicate
Heart & Spirit Goals: How do you want to feel, glow and grow
Financial Goals: How much do you want save, invest, increase and spend your funds
Work, Career and Study Goals: How are you going to take your work life to the next level
In an effort to help you plan your goals and break them down into something more feasible I have attached a few of my own personal examples.
Personal Goal Example: Take better care of my body
How to get to this goal: Eating cleaner and working out more often
Month Goals: Don't eat meat more than 4+ times, workout at 12+ times
Weekly Breakdown: Shop local, add more vegan recipes to the kitchen, 2 workouts and 1 run

Take some time to print out the worksheets and fill them out, tape them somewhere that you can see easily throughout the day, print multiple copies if you need to. No matter what, stay focused and don't forget what you are working towards!
