The set your goal today cards below are handy if you want to carry your daily goals with you in your wallet, bag or pocket. You can download the PDF below (8 cards per A4 page).
What are your goals for today? Do you wake up in the morning and decide what to try and achieve that day? It's a challenging habit to start but it can be a great motivator creating a dynamic that helps battle stagnation.

If the goals are realistic and meaningful it can mean a sense of challenge each day, and a sense of accomplishment in the evening!
If you have some outcome goals already, (i.e. to read 10 books from your list in the next month or to save 20% of your income this year) these little cards can be great to remind yourself of the daily efforts you want to make. For example to read 2 chapters or spend less on daily bits.
Even in the short term making your goals SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, timed) is significantly more effective than goals that are not SMART (Locke and Latham, 2017). A SMART goal is a powerful and clear-cut determination to take action towards a specific objective.
Why not print out a few copies of these daily goal cards, chop them up with some scissors and keep a pile handy somewhere.
Having these goal cards in your pocket or wallet will also help engrave your goals in your mind. Also handing them out to your friends will encourage them to challenge themselves.
