Last month we asked how easy it is for you to keep track and change your goals mid-year. Most of you indicated that you struggle with maintaining or changing your goals as your priorities shift, which is normal. Some helpful tools can make the process a bit smoother, like resolution journals. Resolution journals are like bullet journals, in that they help you keep track of your goals, priorities, and aspirations. In doing so, you’ll be able to monitor your progress, identify where you can make changes, and, eventually, achieve your goals. Here are some of the benefits that a resolution journal can offer you:
It can be easy to go overboard when setting goals. Keeping a resolution journal ensures that you only focus on the most important thing: setting a handful of smart, actionable goals. This will make it easier to review and take action than having an overwhelming list that can leave you wondering where to begin.
When you have your goals in a resolution journal, you can keep them close at all times, like at the office, at home or on the go. Make a point to review your goals once a day to stay on track. If you find yourself struggling with certain goals, dedicate one or two pages to creating an action plan on how you can best move forward.
Although resolution journals are fantastic for staying organized and responsible, they can also be a great way to express your creativity. In your free time, spend time making each page beautiful and unique. This will allow you to approach your goals creatively and approach them from different angles.
Resolution journals can hold you accountable to your goals and ensure that you remain on track with them. That said, remember that your goals can sometimes change. If you have found that your priorities have shifted throughout the year, you can always change your goals to fit your current aspirations and needs.
