happy New Year everybody! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season, and that you’re feeling energized to tackle what’s to come in 2024. Goal setting has been a little harder for me to handle mentally over the past few years (I think it’s a result of mental health struggles post-pandemic), but I have some A sense of purpose, even if it’s not on the grand scale I was used to before 2020. Because my motivation has been slowing down lately, I thought it might be helpful to put together a printable list of goals that I could write down and hang up in order to achieve. I keep my energy upbeat.
If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, click here to download our free printable New Year’s Goals list. I’ve included 10 boxes with check marks that you can write your goals in, then cross them off when you achieve them. I personally respond well to checklists like this because they allow me to see the progress I’m already making. I’ve also included two additional sections: a box for your “One Word” for the year, and a “Big Picture” area as well. These sections allow you to be more expansive in setting goals and writing comprehensive motivators for 2024.
To help give you a better idea of how to use this list of goals, I thought I’d share a little bit about myself king Plans for the new year. The “one word” for 2024 is “less.” It doesn’t mean I want to do less in the most obvious sense of that word. I actually mean the direct opposite. My goal is to be less hesitant in my activities throughout the day, less afraid of failure, less insecure, etc. – you get the point! I want to stop doubting myself so much and start working harder to get out of the rut I’ve been in since 2020.
Here’s what I wrote in the “Big Picture” section of my printable goal list: “Instead of thinking about all the things I want to do more of this year (unrealistic!), I’ll try to find healthy trade-offs. This is simplistic.” And Revitalize my life in 2024. less In order to be moreI want to get up and move my body, listen to music instead of sitting in silence, stop putting off my art and go back to the pottery studio, and I want to stop saying no because I think I won’t succeed. Try something new. I want to be me! , but a bigger, better, more energetic version of myself, and in order to do that, I need to stop being my own worst enemy mentally. Less insecurity and more work.
I hope this helps you launch your own idea for 2024, and that you’ll consider trying the printable list method if you haven’t done so in years past. Like I said, there’s something really motivating about having a list printed and visible day after day. My sister and I took things a step further during our vacation vacation by making vision boards. I also plan to hang this in my office next to my list of goals as inspiration for my work and personal life.
