Personal goals tableDo you have goals in each area?

You might prefer to set your goals once a year as part of your new years resolutions, and maybe you like to think through each area of your life so your goals lead to a balanced life...

Personal goal setting worksheet

Click here to download the PDF for the "7 areas of life" goal setting worksheet.

This worksheet is about considering your dreams and hopes in a slightly new way. You're encouraged to think about the different areas of your life... you know, social, health, career etc.

With this worksheet however,  you can also consider your targets in the short term, medium term and long term.

Does one area strike you as especially relevant to you right now?

Which area do you think has the greatest potential for opening up your life towards your future vision?

If you were to ask someone you trust a lot, which areas would they suggest focusing on right now? 

I wouldn't like to say that a more balanced approach is always better because we are all different. I do however think it's valuable to explore. Exploration of areas that we may not instinctively go to can often lead to new ideas and creative power being revealed...

So happy exploring!

2. Setting goals in each area of your life

Personal goals and steps tableYou can use this worksheet as a brainstorming tool. A chance to think about all the important areas in your life and consider what you might challenge in each area to improve your quality of life. Once you've thought about things you would really like to achieve in each area then I recommend prioritising which is most important for you and start working towards one, two or maximum 3 of your top priorities.
