Where do you write your goals?

81 replies
I used to keep my daily, monthly, and yearly goals in a spiral notebook.

That worked when I was writing my goals, but I didn't go back to the notebook very often.

Now I post my goals where I can see them when I am on my computer.

However, I really think I'm also going to put a white board by my desk.

That's what I have at work and it really helps plan out daily goals.

Where do you write your goals?

      For myself I use Outlook with a PlanPlus plugin.

      I go in at the start of each week and review what I have achieved that week and organise my schedule for the coming week. My schedule has the stepping stones that I need to work towards to achieve my goals.

      This way I know I am always working towards my goals.

      This is then synced with my portable iPhone and other devices so it is always within my reach to review and remind myself of what I am working towards.

    I have a list in my pocket at all times, and a sharpie on my keychain...i cross off items throughout the day. This works well for me :-D

    I also use my iPhone for tasks that are int he distance OR quick tasks as well that come up throughout the day. The list I make on paper is EVERYTHING on my mind when I wake up.

    I can't do goals on the computer. I need to write them down with a pen. In fact, I have a whole complex of yearly and monthly goals that I keep in a month-at-a-glance calendar and weekly and daily goals that I keep in a day-at-a-glance calendar. I'm really rather compulsive about it.

      couldn't agree more, I've got a big sheet of blue A1 card nailed to the wall next to my computer, my goals at one end and yellow sticky notes all over the card detailing what I'm taking action on right now to get there, it's so simple and visual, and best of all it works amazingly well.

    I recommend to my clients to put their goals on a
    small card and carry it with them in their pocket
    or purse.

    When they need something from their pocket or
    purse, they will more than likely touch the goal
    card. This simple 'act' triggers the mind to
    remember what's on the card.

    This is a powerful way to keep your goals always
    'in mind' which in turn helps to delivers the results
    desired more quickly.

    I hope this helps...

    Cheers

      Thanks, Geoff!

      That's one I hadn't heard before, but it makes sense. Like putting a string around your finger to remind you of something. My sister used to change her rings around so that when she saw them "out of place" she'd remember, and if she had something to remember to do on the way home or to work, she would write it on a post it or a slip of paper and then staple the paper around the strap of her purse.

      And I remember one of my favorite television personalities when I was a kid was Ray Raynor on the old Channel 9 Chicago. He had a morning show and he had all these notes stuck to his overalls to remind himself what to do next. We used to watch it before school in the mornings, and he ran around like a crazy person, but he was great and he always sent you off to school with a grin on your face.

      Thanks for the tip ~ and the reminder!

      My fiance and I have tried a few ways to keep our goals organized.

      In the end we found that by putting them on the wall at eye level we see them everyday which helps us keep motivated.

      We each have our own goals and then we have our goals.

      Doing it this way also allows us to kick each other if we start to slack off and most importantly we can see that we completed something when we cross it out with a big bright marker.

      We also have dream boards that have our long term stuff. We go over our goals and the steps to accomplish those goals regularly.

      Goals are so much more fun when you have someone who shares your enthusiasm in accomplishing them. Don't you think?

    What a fun question! I write down the goals in random places, like in my computer, on my hand, or on the white board. I think seeing it often tells you where your going, which is good, but you need to have the goal in your mind. I think if you can visualize your goal in your mind, it is more effective emotionally than looking at it someplace around the house.

    Well, although having the goals in front of you helps in focusing (and making a goal-desktop-image also)... nothing beats the power of actually WRITING THEM DOWN, with the good old pencil + paper.

    "What you write down is recorded at heart" is a real fact, and true advice for everything in life.

    Another true fact is FOCUS on one at a time.

    So focus ONLY in one goal you want to accomplish this month, and write it down repeatedly at least 25 times (50 is better), at the start of your day.

    Make sure to actually FEEL that you have achieved it, right now, and you are set.

    I write on a whiteboard in my home office for some of my goals. I have started a general to do list on my computer that I refer to most days and that includes my goals for the year and then the current month at the top of my list. I find that helps to keep me motivated. I also get a pleasure from putting "Done" next to items on my list and seeing how close I am to attaining my goals for the day!

    What I did was type up my goal then made it into my background for my computer. Next, I printed a small copy for my wallet. Then, I printed two more copies and bought frames. One is hanging right on my computer desk, and the other one is in the shower. I think the shower one was a great idea for me because everytime I take a shower, I ALWAYS read the stuff on back of shampoo, conditioner, body wash bottles. So, I figured.. why not have my goals right there. That might be of help.

    My next project in regards to goals.. I plan on making a collage of what I want in Life..

    Hope this helps,

      You seem to mean something like "plans are more concrete than just goals". That isn't true. A goal doesn't need to be "I'll be very wealthy and live a wonderful life" or anything (although could be), so the "worldly" approach you claim to have (vs. others') isn't much appreciated.

      I really wonder what your plans pertain to without goals anyway.

      It has to be goals => strategy => plans => tasks => action.

      More important question than the above would be: where do you write your four daily tasks that you WILL do that same day to even have a chance to accomplish your goals.

      I think the haphazard ways people relate to their goals is detrimental to their fulfillment.

      I have a private blog for my own and my accountability partners' daily tasks.

      I have seen more bold actions since that has started than in my previous 25 years of coaching.
      Both for myself and my students/partners.

      Earlier last year I tried the method of posting the goals and the results were non-existent.

      There has been one problem: it is not easy for people to create actions from their goals... and some are chicken and create puny actions.
      But even puny actions are better than pie in the sky "goals."

    If I have a goal in mind that needs to be accomplished, I always write it on a notebook. However, writing your goals won't help you unless you put it into action. If you think it's difficult, better try hard till you succeed. That's what I'm doing now, keep on researching everything to make things successful.

    I've found that having a small voice recorder with you at all times helps tremendously. Maybe it's because I'm lazy but talking into a voice recorder is much easier than writing into a journal. Either way it's great that you know how important it is to keep track of your goals.

      Jazbo, I open up my binder, look at my goals, then get straight into visualization. What do I visualize? My goals lol. It's my reminder of why I do what I do every day. That's how I keep my motivation. The objectives and tasks for the day are simply a reflection of my goals. So in a sense they do mix in...... why wouldn't they?

      I'm a little confused about this, could you clarify? Just curious. I'm not saying I'm right; I just want to get your perspective.

      Great Jazbo! this is so important. It's so common to mix goals,
      objectives, actions...

      I like to write them on a blackboard in front of my computer.

      I write my goals daily in a notebook that I keep by my bed and carry to my desk daily.
      For me, writing them down physically works.
      I can see were having them on your computer would be as good
      but for me, the actaul physical writing helps me remember.
      I also schedule my day out on the notebook daily

      So, I'm a physical guy.

    I have written my goals on my business visiting card.I carry it with me all the times in the wallet. So every time when i take some cash out of it, I see my card with the cash and it reminds me to double that money :-)

    I have a little magnet board on my refrigerator and I write down what I need to do the next day. Also, I leave post-it notes on my computer to keep it fresh in my mind.

    I haven't thought of getting my goals written "physically", so far, I only set my goals on my mind. lol

    I downloaded a free program called 'Stickies' it is effectively a Post-It note on your computer screen but with added extras such as an alarm etc.

    Hi Paula, there are many ways of posting your goals. I use personaly a vision board with achieved and unachieved partition.

    I used to use hardbound journals for goals, but now when I commit to a project, I make a file for it, since most of my goals are to write things. I keep the old drafts, notes, ideas etc in the file and carry it in my briefcase. When I have my lunch hour I pull it out and edit and create new ideas. I have finished more ebooks this way.

    For financial goals, I have a separate book and on the first of each month, I calculate my net worth (asset - liabilities) and review my investment results. This discipline is eye opening and keeps me focused on saving and debt reduction.

    Lately, I like using simple steno notebooks for time management. I like them so much I actually wrote an ehow article on it to test the site. I find the simpler my system for time management got, I more productive I got.

    I have been writing my goals in the inside of my eyelids so every time I go to bed I think about them. HA! Actually I just post them to a wall where I can see them, it seems to work pretty well.

    I draw my goals in big fat crayons on bi sheets of paper and put them on my wall.

    Visualise them rather than look at scrawled writing is my tip.

    Don't mix up the goal with objectives/actions/tasks to achieve the goal though, as some people do.

    I do the same thing. I write my goal with big letters or numbers as it's more some dollars amount goal per day and it's always on my desk. More I think about it for five minutes before I'm going to sleep and when I wake up.

    I test it last year for passing some exams and I was trying to conditionning myself to succeed. It works well for the exams so I try again for my IM goals and I try to keep going.

    Ive got a file which has all my yearly goals and my weekly goals.
    This file also has great inspirational quotes inside and great ideas whether they be business related or otherwise.

    Im also part of a mastermind group called CEO (Creative Entrepreneural Owners), where we meet every week and we encourage each other, give each other our upcoming weekly goals (there are 3 of us at the moment) as well as check up on last weeks goals and if you've completed them.

    If you havent completed any weekly goals, we ask why???(this really helps as it always forces you to change for the better as a person)

    I also have goals put up so i can see them every morning as i wake up and every night before I sleep
