Planner Review: Slay Your Goals Planner

With New Year’s right around the corner, you might be thinking about a New Year’s resolution. I know we still have to get through Christmas, but just put this in the back of your mind for now. Occasions when we are reminded of time passing are always popular for setting new goals: the start of a year, a birthday, the beginning of a week or month.

New Year’s is very popular for this reason, but also has a reputation that those resolutions don’t last. US News reported that 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail by February. Goals fail for a variety of different reasons, but one of the reasons you have the most control over is lack of planning.

It’s for just this situation that the Slay Your Goals Planner was created. I received a free copy of the Slay Your Goals Planner to review, but all opinions are my own.

Overview

Planners are often focused around time management, while the Slay Your Goals Planner is focused on getting you to the finish line. The worksheets take you all the way from a general idea of what you want, down to the nitty gritty of how you will get there.

For those of you who need the calendar aspect of a planner, that is included as well. There are several layouts to choose from so you can decide what method works best for you. I think they are gorgeous. But I’m partial to teal, so consider yourself warned!

Who is it for?

Do you fall under one of these categories?

  1. I’m living my life and happy without goals
  2. I feel like I’m treading water and unsure if I can even handle a goal
  3. I have a general idea what I want but I’m not sure how to get there
  4. I’m a goal-setting machine, but short on results

The Slay Your Goals Planner starts with the very basics of figuring out what you want for your life, moving on to creating a concrete goal, and helping you turn that goal into reality. Even if you don’t think you have goals (ok this is hard for me to imagine as a goal-oriented person) you still have a preference for your life. That life “intention” is where the planner starts.




Breaking Down the Steps

It starts out with a set of worksheets to define your ultimate intention – the purpose behind your goals. This process felt similar to journaling to me, where the act of writing things out helps you clarify your thoughts.

At first glance some of the worksheets seem to ask the same question. As you go through the process you find that each is coming at the idea from a slightly different angle so that you get a 3D view of your intention in the end, with all the facets it’s made of. With this rounded understanding, you can move forward to set goals that impact different areas of your intention.

Next, the Slay Your Goals Planner walks you through prioritizing goals in different areas of your life.Then it asks you to think about how those goals relate to your overall life intention so you can decide if your priorities are aligned or not.

The creator, Nadalie, doesn’t just sit you down with a blank page; she provides many examples through free access to other resources such as the 350+ Goals Guide. If you have trouble thinking of goals related to one of the areas of life, you will find many ideas there.

Over the course of the next pages, you will narrow down to one main goal that supports your intention, round this goal out, and break it down into manageable pieces.

To-Dos

The Slay Your Goals Planner leads you through turning your goal into to-dos and helps you prioritize those through different methods. As you go along, you create a timeline for implementation. This is where the calendar portion of the planner arrives.

There are many different calendar layouts to choose from so you can organize in the way that makes the most sense to you. Only a few pages have specific dates on them, making the planner reusable every year!

I mentioned that the layout was beautiful in teal. In all honesty though, I printed it in black and white. There were only a few small instances where that was hard to read and with the multiple layout options you can avoid those pages. Or go ahead and embrace the teal! I don’t have a color printer at home, but I found out my local office store will do color laser printing for a very reasonable price.

Review

What would goals be without reflection on what you’ve accomplished? The planner includes a monthly review sheet as well as more in-depth questions to help you track your progress and re-evaluate along the way. You may find that your goal has changed, or that you need to add another step in order to reach it. This regular review is important to make sure you are slaying your goals instead of getting bogged down in the details.
