All About the New Goal Action Plan Pages

by: Emily Thomas

You've seen the changes to the inside pages of the 2021 PowerSheets (yes!!), but we wanted to zero in on one of the biggest changes in today's post: the new Goal Action Plan pages. Let's take a look!

First, the why: this was a change that came straight from the habits and suggestions of the PowerSheets goal planner community! For years, we've led you in an increased focus on the power of 90 days in setting goals and on our quarterly refreshes. Eventually, we realized we were asking you to refresh your goals every 90 days, but not really giving you the space to do that in your 90 day planner!

No more! In your 2021 PowerSheets, we suggest a simple way to pace yourself: focusing on one mini short term goal per quarter for each of your yearly goals. This connects the power of big-picture vision with a clarity and focus on what matters most, and the potency of shorter windows for progress!

And then, we give you the space to live that out. In your quarterly refreshes, you'll find several pages dedicated to mapping out a new mini short term goal and action steps for each of your yearly goals. If you choose to use a different cadence, these pages are flexible enough to be used in many ways (we love seeing your creativity), but for those of you who are looking for direction - you've got it!

Hand in hand with those changes, we're freshened up the Goal Action Plan pages at the front of your PowerSheets, too. In addition to a few new prompts for your goal as a whole and space to brainstorm action steps for the full year, we're directing you to choose and plan out your mini goal for the first quarter to get you off to a great start.

As always, the goal-setting section includes your Yearly Overview, which is the perfect place to plot out all of the action steps for all of your goals in one place, making sure you're not planning too much at once and giving everything room to flourish!

Friends, we hope you LOVE these changes! We're honored to be able to listen and respond to your requests, and we hope these new additions make it even easier and more joyful to cultivate the things that really matter to you.
