For some, setting goals is easy; but for others, not so much. That’s why if you are struggling to figure out how to even get started, it is my hope this post will help you. More importantly, I want to inspire you not only set goals but to get them organized and create a usable reference tool for yourself. That is what this free printable will give you! So let’s get started!
01. Do a Braindump
The first step you should take in setting your monthly goals is to do a braindump. This means simply to grab a piece of paper and rapid log all the goals you’d like to achieve -just for a month. Remember your main monthly goals should be steps that will help you ultimately achieve your yearly goals.

02. Choose 4 Main Goals
Out of your braindump list choose four (4) main goals you’d like to achieve during the month. It’s good practice to choose goals you know you can (likely) achieve. This is not the stage to try and achieve a 5 year goal -while these “baby steps” will get you to that 5 year goal -you are unlikely to achieve that in in any one month.
03. Set Your Goals
The best way to use this free printable to help you achieve your goals is to write each of your four goals into the first box by the circled number. If you wanted to, you could also write a little description for your goal. Let’s use a little simplistic example below.
- Main Goal Category: Budget
- Goal Description: Stay on top of bills and save X amount of money
04. List 3 Ways To Achieve The Goal
This part is pretty self-explanatory but it’s worth reviewing. Using the example above your three ways to achieve your budgeting goal for the month might look like:
- List bills due for the month (check out Know Your Worth 2022 Budget Planner Setup to see how to use a budget Happy Planner and to see how the pages are setup for ideas)
- Schedule in planner the days to pay bills
- From each paycheck, save $50 and transfer into savings account
05. Goals Check-in
About mid-month, be sure to do a goal check-in to make sure you are on track to achieve your monthly goals. If you are not, first access why; then recalibrate and get back on track.
Now it’s time to get those goals set for the month!
