Ready to set goals for the last quarter of the year? Super! Here are 5 steps for goal success and the pretty productivity pack for Q4.
When you set goals, a month might be just a bit too short a time to get something bigger done.
On the other hand, for some goals, a year is a bit too long of a time.
But please don’t get me wrong, it’s important to have both yearly AND monthly goals. But between those, I also like to plan quarterly.
And if you’re not yet doing it, I absolutely recommend you try it! It can take your goals setting (and achieving!) to a whole another level!
Three months is the perfect time period to start bigger projects and actually finish them, so I like to use this simple 5 -step system when planning in three month/12-week cycles.
It’s my favorite planning and goal setting method:
Assess your life
Choose your focus
Set three goals
Outline a plan
And after the 3 months have passed, reflect on life.
And during the last quarter (Q4) of the year, it’s time to rock October, November, and December and finish the year by achieving your awesome goals!
Q4 pretty printable productivity pack
And the way to do that there are 5 printables I like to use:
Q4 Wheel to Assess Your Life
Q4 Focus Worksheet
Q4 Goal Setting Sheet
Q4 Mini Planner
Q4 Reflection Sheet
And you can find all of them from these posts I’ve listed here!
They’re printable gifts! So click to the post, grab the printable, read the instructions, and make these next three months the best quarter yet!
Now that you've assessed your life, it's so much easier to decide what you want to focus on for the next three months.
And to keep life in perfect balance, it's important to have bigger goals and make sure that those other equally (if not even more!) important things, like self-care, relationships, and fun things (!), have room in your plans.
So before you set your 3 main goals for the next 3 months, write down what you'd like to focus on in different areas of your life.
