How to Set, Plan and Slay Your Goals in 2018

So I’m gonna soldier talk you through this.That’s my way of saying “Find yourself a notebook badasses of the world I’m about to teach you everything you need to know about goal-setting, planning in the correct way to achieve your goals and how to FINALLY ACHIEVE whatever it is that you have your heart set on for the upcoming new year.”

So the best way to explain this is to add in all the goals I have for myself. Also before we start here are a few things you are going to need:

Tools

  • Pens
  • Highlighters(optional)
  • Paper//Notebook
  • Ruler

Step 1:Create Categories

So before we even start thinking about what we want to achieve we’re gonna make 4-5 main categories which our goals will fall under.

-SCHOOL

-CAREER

-HEALTH

-SELF DEVELOPMENT

I find that pretty much all my goals fit into the four categories but if you want to add more, feel free. Make sure that you don’t have too many categories or it can get very stressful and overwhelming.

Step 2:Brainstorm

What are your goals? These can be about anything. Do you wanna go to gym everyday or smile more? This is the time for you to figure out what all the random goals you want to achieve are.

Write them all down, no matter how weird they may seem.

New friends           80% average                              Workout everyday          Smile more

         Six pack       Stress-free                Write book                                        Inspire people

Step 3:Organise them into categories

*Make sure that you only have 3 or four goals under each category*

  • Post twice a week
  • Inspire young girls to live life the way they want and encourage them to shatter all the glass ceilings they want.
  • Teach girls less about fitting into glass slippers and more about shattering glass ceilings-UNKOWN

  • Make blogger friends

  • Inspire 13 year old girls going through ish and people of other ages obvi

Okay, so now that  you’ve created the goals you want to achieve, you need a step-by-step action plan in order to achieve them.

So what you’re gonna do is look at each category, let’s start with School.You’ll notice how the bullet points fit into one another.If I’m getting good grades and have friends then I would be stress free. Let’s say I am stressed though, being around friends is always a great way to relieve stress.

Now we’re gonna make a few little notes under each goal about what you need to do to achieve the goal.If you feel the need to go into more detail about what you need to do for this goal to become an actuality then I would use a page per goal.

~The notes under the goal will be about all the little things you need to do, be it changing habits, or making new ones.

EXAMPLE

Before you leave I want to leave a few tips to help you stay ontrack with your goals.

  1. BE SPECIFIC ABOUT YOUR GOALS-what exactly do you want?how will you get there?
  2. TRY NOT TO INCLUDE TOO MANY NUMBERS-you are not a number.your happiness should not depend on a number
  3. SET REMINDERS ON YOUR PHONE ABOUT YOUR GOALS-the number of times I’ve forgotten about goals #the struggle
  4. REVIEW YOUR GOALS EVERY TWO WEEKS-this is to make sure you’re making progress with your goals regularly
  5. DON’T FEEL DOWN IF YOU DON’T ACHIEVE A GOAL-knowing that you worked hard to get there is all that matters

Athletics Update: 6 kilometres

I didn’t make the athletics team, but I’m over that.

I did join cross-country though and that’s where the 6 kilometres comes in. 2017 = “Make a Splash (That’s my theme for this year) which is why I’m doing a bunch of stuff I’ve never done before, like cross country. Cross country has practice on Mondays and Tuesdays with meets on Thursdays and I only joined because a)my ride was late and b) a few of my friends do cross country and lastly, c) because I was bored. Running around a track feels a lot shorter than running around a school, anyway today was my first meet. We walked the route before the race and my legs hurt for like, the first km but after that they started adapting to it I guess.#noregrets! I was with my friend Blueberry(no this isn’t her real name for all of you thinking all my friends are named after food) and we agreed to stick together.

We didn’t stick together.

I’m generally better at long distance than she is but I’ve never ran more than 2 km at once and she’s been doing cross-country for 2 years know, I think. Although she left me, I saw someone I knew from my old school and we talked while we were running and then I left her and started jogging faster.

78, ain’t that bad.♥♥♥

Walking back to our spot was the longest walk ever, I was completely and utterly exhausted! I’m going to keep doing it though because “your only limit is yourself” and because I can’t wait to say that I came *insert dream placing here*. It was actually really fun, I saw my cousin, she was running and then on the bus we talked about the most random things and I couldn’t stop laughing !All in all

what a weird thing to say

I KNOW RIGHT!?

I can’t wait for the next meet!

AND IN THE END I’LL DO IT ALL AGAIN
