Want to be extra productive and organized, and set mini monthly goals with actionable steps? Super! Here’s a cute monthly goals planner that can help you do just that!
Today’s printable gift is a monthly goals planner + calendar that can help you set, track and achieve your mini-goals each month.
I hope you like them!
“A goal without a plan is just a wish” is one of my favorite quotes by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. And he is so spot-on when it comes to planning, setting and achieving your goals.
So I’ve created for you two pretty AND practical printables that can help you plan, set and achieve your monthly goals:
1. Monthly goals sheet to focus and set mini goals and follow the progress
2. Monthly calendars
These monthly goals planner sheets help you easily plan, set and achieve your monthly goals.
You can add them to your planner/binder or use them as-is. I hope you like them as much as I loved creating them for you!
5 steps to set and achieve your monthly goals
When I set my monthly goals I use a simple method with actionable steps to make sure I won’t just be setting goals but also having the possibility to achieve them.
And these are the steps:
- Choose your focus
- Set 3 goals you can achieve in one month
- Write small easily doable action steps that will help you and lead you achieving your 3 goals.
- Follow your progress
- Write fun things or rewards you can look for to to stay motivated.
Super simple! Isn’t it? And next I’ll walk you through each step.
I always recommend writing down your goals. When you write things down you will have a better chance to stay committed and motivated.
So you can take a piece of paper, draw it in your bullet journal or planner or you can use my printables. If you rather draw this yourself – check out the images for inspiration!
The first thing you’ll need to do is to choose your focus.
1. Choose what you want to focus on
What are you hoping to achieve this month?
Think of the bigger picture. You have something you’d like to achieve in the long run. This “focus of the month” should be something will help you get there faster.
Psst! If you have some bigger and more “difficult” goal you want to achieve you might like the post 10 step method to achieve your goals.
2. Choose 3 goals
After you’ve written down what you want to focus on, choose 3 mini-goals – not more. You can only do so much and if you scatter your focus all over the place most likely you won’t achieve what you want to achieve.
3. Come up with small actionable steps
Now it’s time to write bite-sized action steps that’ll help you achieve your mini-goals. Each step and task should be something you can execute. If it feels too overwhelming, break it into an even smaller step.
4. Follow your progress
Draw a checkbox next to each action step and even under each set of action steps and color those little squares when ever you’ve finished with each task and see how you’re progressing with your goals.
5. Don’t forget to have fun and reward yourself
Create a space for fun things and rewards!
Write down what fun things and which rewards you’ll provide yourself once you’ve achieved your goals! Remember that the journey to success should be enjoyable too!

How to incorporate calendar sheets with your monthly goals
I like to be able to see the whole month at-a-glance when I create my plans to achieve my monthly mini goals.
With the monthly calendar sheets you get to glance your monthly plans quickly and see if some weeks look too full or empty, or you can use the calendar view to write down your plans.
I like to use these kinds of monthly sheets when I plan for my blog posts. It’s like an editorial calendar. I also like to use one for my personal plans and another one as a small happiness diary.
Materials you’ll need for the printable
- Printer – I have this HP printer that I absolutely love.
