Do you set goals in your business, for your family, or for personal accomplishments? Goals are a great way to move forward, provided you have supported the planning process with a specific action list, broken down into individual steps. An action planner is a great way to do this.
A good action plan will help you create SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-based) goals that can be broken down into bite-sized action items you can knock off one-by-one. It’s not only organized in a way that helps you keep track and make progress, but it also can be motivating because it allows you to build momentum.[jetpack_subscription_form title="Subscribe to Out of Office:" subscribe_button="Sign Me Up"]
One of my favorite ways to track my goals and ensure I’m taking action is by creating a booklet or binder to keep everything organized and in one place. Below is a free download you can use to create your own planner. It includes blank spaces for you to write down your goals and create a plan for achieving them. The download also walks you through the goal setting and action planning process, providing tips to help you create an effective plan.
