Free goal setting worksheets

Do you know what you want out of life? These free goal setting worksheets can help you to decide what’s really important to you and start you down the path to a life that others only dream of!






To be effective, goal setting needs to be something more than simply declaring to your buddies “Someday I’m going to…” That isn’t goal setting; that’s daydreaming. The best way to turn your “dreams” into reality is to start “doing;” and the first step is to seriously set your goals.

Written, well-thought-out precise goals will keep your life focused. You’ll be better motivated and less side-tracked. Even when life “throws you a curve,” you’ll be able to “steady your course” and stay aiming at your target.

Here are some of the things we’re going to accomplish with these free goal setting worksheets;





  • Discover your purpose in life; your ultimate goal.
  • Visualize what the “end result” will look like.
  • Evaluate where you’re at now in relation to your goal.

  • Identify the talents, skills and knowledge needed to reach your goal.

  • Determine the first logical, simple step towards your goal.

  • Choose a starting date for the first step.

  • Think about possible obstacles you’ll encounter.

  • Consider ways to overcome those obstacles.

  • Establish measurable “milestones” down the path to your goal.

  • Pick out “rewards” for milestones reached successfully.

  • Determine exactly when you will accomplish your goal.

1. Let’s “dream” a little; if I could guarantee that there is absolutely no way you will fail to live the life of your dreams, what would it look like? What are you doing? Where are you? Who is with you? Close your eyes and “see it,” “feel it,” “smell it” and “touch it.” Make it real in your mind and write down every detail.


-------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------


2. What will you need to know to reach your “new life?” Will you require special training, a college degree, specific talents or skills? Do you know anyone that might mentor you along the way? Do you need to make some special “contacts?”


-------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------


3. Is there an area in your “current life” that is dragging you down and holding you back? Debt, education, a relationship, depression, your past? How can get a handle on it? Do you procrastinate? Be totally honest with yourself. Remember, no one is going to see this but you.


-------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------


4. What is the first, easy small step you can take today to address something you identified in the last answer? When will you take that step?


-------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------


5. What obstacles might pop up along the way? Can you anticipate all of them? Can you determine solutions for each problem you might encounter?


-------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------


6. How will you know you’re on “the right path?” What will the first “milestone” be where you can say “I’m getting there! I’m on my way!” When will that be?


-------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------


7. What will you do for yourself when you reach that “milestone?” How will you “reward” yourself?


-------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------


8. After that first “milestone,” what will your next step be? And the next? Then the next?


-------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------


9. Picture yourself saying about your life’s goal “I did it!” When will that be? What is the exact, realistic date?
