Self Funding Planner is open to January month view. There are sparkly accessories and even a bottle of champagne, creating a New Year vibe.

This is the time of year when everyone is setting ambitious goals but might not be achieving some of them. To increase your chances for a year full of growth and success, keep these 5 common goal setting mistakes in mind:

Mistake #1: Not tracking progress
Make sure to use habit trackers and write down your weekly wins.

Mistake #2: Setting unrealistic goals
Use the SMART method to create Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, & Time-Bound goals.

Mistake #3: Not considering potential obstacles
Create a plan B or plan C in case something goes differently than planned.

Mistake #4: Forgetting your "why”
Write down what motivates you at the beginning of your planner, where you can easily refer back to at any time.

Mistake #5: Setting too many (big) goals
If you're ambitious, you can split up big goals and work on one new one each month this year instead of all at once.

Secure your Self Funding Planner to start setting goals effectively and stay motivated throughout the year - complete with habit trackers, goal setting, and reflection space!
