Hello Crafting Chicks! Michelle here from Michelle Lea Creative. Today I am sharing a 2017 Goals Printable with you. How is it that 2016 is coming to an end. How was your year? Did you achieve your goals? Did you set goals for yourself at the beginning of the year? I have to admit that 2016 was a year of lots of change and not much forward thinking and planning on my part. But we can redeem ourselves with 2017, right?? haha.
Instead of making resolutions that add to the stress of the year, I am making positive and manageable goals for 2017. It all starts with my word for the year, which you will find at the bottom of your printable. For 2016, my word was Grace and I feel like I achieved it. We moved to the East Coast, I finished another degree and kept my business running and thriving… and most importantly kept the family alive!
Why should we make goals instead of resolutions?
For me a resolution feels like I need to fix all of the things wrong instead of focusing on the positive goals that I want to work toward. It can be as simple as rethinking your wording… lose 40lbs. vs build a healthy body. These goals are meant to be written in broad terms and then here is the most valuable part of writing down your goals…. use your sheet of goals as the guide to what you say yes to throughout the year. If you receive a business or personal opportunity, take a step back and look at your goals and determine if the opportunity will help you work toward your goals or not.
Keep your goals in mind when making big decisions
You can use these sheets for yourself, family goals and even business goals. I hope that this less stress way of looking at goals and your dreams will help to make your 2017 a success and more positive. Please come visit me at Michelle Lea Creative or Instagram where I spend most of my time. Good luck with your 2017 planning and leave a comment to share your word for the year or some of your dreams! Remember to dream big.
