Among the many different benefits of having and using a planner, consider using it for setting goals. You can have pages dedicated to listing all of your short and long-term goals, tasks to complete those goals, and even a schedule of what to do when. Keep reading to learn how you can use your planner for this purpose.

Decide What Planner to Set Goals in
This is a big decision to make, and is often dictated by the types of goals you have. If you are keeping your goals fairly simple, they can definitely fit in your ordinary planner. However, some people like to be more complex and actually want a journal-style planner for setting and detailing their goals and the tasks involved.
Use the S.M.A.R.T. Goals Method
SMART stands for specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, time specific. These goals are not just some big, elaborate dream, but something that is achievable. You want a goal to be realistic and something where you can measure the level of success. It is also good to set a time for completing the goal, which encourages you to keep up with the tasks and have a clear set path.
Be Specific with Tasks and Deadlines
Here is where people often go wrong- they set a goal, but it is open-ended, and doesn’t really include instructions on how to complete it. When you set a goal, you should also have a broad look at tasks required to complete that goal, then each of those tasks might have more details about how to complete them. You might want to start an online business, so tasks often include setting a budget, creating a website, and stocking inventory. For the website, there are even more tasks required, like choosing a domain name, hosting, and web design.
Schedule All Tasks
Another important part of setting goals in your planner is to schedule the tasks. This is one of the benefits of using your planner for your different goals. Each time you list a task to be completed for that goal or project, set a deadline. After the deadline is set, add it to your calendar pages, including the monthly and weekly calendar areas.
This is going to keep you on track, reducing stress, and offering more organization and structure in your life. Each day when you check in with your planner, you know what is expected of you on that day.
