What Is A Goal Chart?
A goal chart is a place to track a goal you want to achieve, why you want to achieve it, and the steps you need to take in order to achieve it.
You can add in dates if the goal has a deadline (ideal, because then you’re a lot more likely to get it finished), and I’d always suggest looking at what hurdles you may encounter on the way (such as lack of time, lack of motivation etc…) so you can plan how to deal with those as well.

Note: This template is available in both A4 and Letter sizes, as a pdf template. Although 80gsm paper is adequate for most day to day uses, I recommend printing on paper that’s at least 100gsm for the best results, and 120gsm if displaying the printable. You could also use coloured paper for a more personalised style (I love using brown paper!).
How To Use A Goal Chart
STEP ONE: Identify your goals
Before you start constructing your goal chart, make sure you have clearly identified the goals that you want to achieve.
Ideally prioritise them so you can pick one at a time. That way you can focus more and get it done. Then you can move to the next one.
STEP TWO: Break down each goal into individual tasks
Once you’ve identified a specific goal, break it down into individual tasks.
Your goal will feel less overwhelming this way, because smaller tasks are easier to fit into your normal schedule, and they’re more likely to get done.
STEP THREE: Set deadlines
Lastly, make sure you set realistic deadlines for each step of the goal chart so that you can stay on track and hold yourself accountable.
A good way to do this is to work backwards from the date you want to get the goal finished by.
STEP FOUR: Make Yourself Accountable
You now have to actually get the goal done!
Ideally hang the goal chart somewhere where you can see it daily – as a quick reminder.
Check in at the end of each week and make sure you’re on track to complete it. No point in setting a deadline if you’re not going to make it happen – and the sooner you identify that, the better.
