Free Goal Setting Evernote Template

If you are looking for a Goal Setting Evernote Template to document and break down your goals into bite size chunks this year, you have found the right place!!!

In 2009, I really kicked butt at accomplishing every single life and business goal. The one simple reason was running a word document that broke down my goals into tiny bite size pieces.

I created an Evernote Goal Setting Template to replicate that success that I wanted to share with you today!

You can access the Evernote Template HERE with zero option required:

I broke down that same concept I used in 2009 to become an extrovert, build a network, get certified and so much more into an easy template in Evernote.

Unlike my rudimentary Word document, Evernote offers checklists, reminders and the ability to edit on multiple devices. Evernote has a free version that is more than sufficient for the task.

To use both online and offline, you’ll need Evernote Premium.

The easy outline explains how to break down your biggest goals and achievements this year inside the template with instructions at the top of the page.

Here is the thing, New Year’s Resolutions are for losers.

Seriously. How long does someone keep up with a resolution?

Like a month, make a whole 6 weeks?

This goal setting is for winners with a special amendment for Sales Goals because… I cater to business owners and sales pros.

Use this template to brainstorm, organize, maintain and centralize important personal and business goals. Share the notebook with stakeholders to keep them informed on your progress.

Use the checkboxes to keep up with tasks and sections completed. Use this Note as a running tabulation throughout the year to keep track of your goals. Use real and actual numbers.

What is measured, gets done! Keep goals S.M.A.R.T. or

S – specific, significant, stretching
M – measurable, meaningful, motivational
A – agreed upon, attainable, achievable, acceptable, action-oriented
R – realistic, relevant, reasonable, rewarding, results-oriented
T – time-based, time-bound, timely, tangible, trackable

You can access the Evernote Template HERE:

No email or information required! Just save the Evernote Template to your preferred Notebook and get started.

Side note, in the comments below, what is you’re one, big, hairy, audacious goal you would like to accomplish this year?
