Since starting my bullet journal, I’ve been having a blast tracking my goals.
It hasn’t felt like work at all, which is something I believe is the key to sustainable behavior change. When behaviors are fun — when we look forward to doing them – we’re more likely to do them consistently. And that means we’re more likely to reach our goals.
Within my journal, I’ve created several pages that address my personal goals. I have sections for annual goals, monthly goals, weekly goals, and daily tasks. Checking off boxes to indicate the completion of tasks and projects not only boosts my confidence in my ability to accomplish my goals, but it also provides me with a sense of personal satisfaction. And that lifts my spirit.
Roughly twice a day (once at mid-day and once before bed) I’ll take a moment to log my activities on my tracking page. At mid-day, I mark of the tasks I’ve completed and then do a quick check-in to see if I have any unfinished activities left on my list. And finally, before bed I check-in again to see how I did overall.
How do you track your goals?
