I make a goal sheet around this time every single year. I find a prominent place for my goal sheet as soon as I finish it, and seeing it every day helps me to focus on meeting my goals! If you enjoy using this time of year to make goals, too, then I hope that you’ll enjoy the free flourished goal sheet offered in today’s blog post. You can scroll down for more information and a download link!
A Little Bit of Background
I offer a goal list printable almost every year, and I like to vary the theme! This year, I drew inspiration from vintage frames. First, I used a pencil to plan out a draft.
I then traced over my pencil lines with sumi ink.
To finish up, I erased my pencil guidelines once the ink had dried. I then scanned the artwork into the computer and used the techniques outlined in the Digitizing Artwork and Calligraphy eCourse to make the piece into a PDF!
How to Use This Goal Sheet
First, print off a copy of the goal sheet, preferably on 32# laserjet paper (or 70-80 lb. drawing paper). You can find the free goal sheet download by clicking here.
Next, write in the year on the line next to “YEAR:” (near the top center of the frame). Optionally, you can use some watercolor to fill in the banner, which will add a touch of color to the goal sheet.
Now, use your writing utensil and the font style of choice to jot down your goals. If you’re stuck on coming up with goals, check out the suggestions in this blog post!
Once you’ve written out your goals, use scissors to cut out around the frame. Try to follow the frame’s contours as you cut.
Once your goal sheet is finished, put it in a prominent place! You can tape it on your wall, put it on a bulletin board, or use a magnet to put it on the refrigerator. The idea is to see it several times a day to serve as a constant reminder of what you want to achieve!
What I Love About This Goal Sheet
Many of the goal sheet printables that you’ll find online are computer generated. The effect is a generic, cold feel. Well — not this goal sheet! It was completely hand-drawn, and all of the flourishes make it fun to look at.
There are four inspirational phrases peppered throughout the border of this goal sheet. You have to look close to see them because of all the flourishes! I like how they add a bit of encouragement to the piece.
I hope that you find this goal sheet useful! This is such a wonderful time of year because it provides you with a bit of a blank slate. Take advantage of that, and think about what you can do to ensure that you’re exactly where you want to be at this time next year! With some creativity, confidence, and endurance, you can achieve every single thing on your list.
Happy 2018 … you deserve the best!
