A Goal Master List is an important way to keep your goals visual and visible. I’ve created some different versions to choose from.
My current favorite is the Goal Shift Chart at Choosing Goals, which is a simple way to identify top priority goals.
The Goal Chart at Goal Worksheet includes actions and targets.
Examples of different goal frequencies:
- daily: I will drink eight glasses of water every day.
- weekly: I will increase time with family by spending at least 30 minutes each week one-on-one with each person doing an activity of their choice.
- monthly/yearly: I will save $1200/year by making a $100 deposit in my savings account every month and track with a chart to reach the target date of twelve months from today.
Is it a resolution, a habit, or a goal?
The last example is a goal: it has a clear end point, and you know when it has been accomplished. The Goal Plans are a mixture of goals with an end point, and resolutions or habits.
This Goal Master List (pdf) makes it easy to see what will add value in different life areas, which value levels are lowest (and therefore highest priority), and what goals will be most effective to increase value.

Remember to do a regular review of goals.
