This free printable 40-page goal planner will help you set and reach goals and spend your time and energy on what you define as meaningful.
This free printable goals chart template can be used for various purposes such as weight loss, fitness, savings, etc. You can track one or more goals. All SMART goal templates are available as a Word, Excel or PDF document. They are all editable.
Setting goals and creating a clear action plan for how you’ll reach each goal increases your chances of reaching your goals. When you set a goal make sure it is SMART (an acronym for Specific or Significant, Measurable or Meaningful, Attainable, Achievable or Action-oriented, Relevant or Rewarding and Timely or Trackable). SMART goals have a higher chance of success. See our free editable SMART goals template printables.
Free Printable Goal Tracker Template
Tracking your goals will increase the chance that you reach them. There is plenty of space on the chart to add text such as the actual goal and how to plan to achieve it. You can break down the final into smaller goals which will make it easier. Sometimes, reaching the final goal just sounds so overwhelming that we want to give up before we even start. Reaching smaller goals on the way to the final goal is easier to achieve.
We offer a goal-setting template for daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly goals. The PDF version is typeable. The Word version is editable. The goals spreadsheet is useful for those who prefer to use Excel.
Daily Goals Template
Weekly Goals Template
This goal tracker ensures your goals relate to all aspects of your life so you don’t neglect things such as family, relationships, and health when pursuing other goals. It also includes a section for financial and career goals but focuses on other goals too. It also has a section for weekly reflection, and gratitude and will help you improve each week by focusing on what you did well and what you can improve on each week.
Monthly Goals Template
Yearly Goals Template
It is important to set long-term goals as well as short-term daily goals. A long-term goal will keep you on track and remind you where you are striving to reach in the long run. This will keep you motivated and prevent you from getting sidetracked.
Once you have set your yearly goals, you can use the monthly goal tracker to create monthly milestones. This will ensure you work on your goals throughout the year and don’t forget about them or start working only when your deadlines approach.
Track a single goal over a one-year period. You can start any month and complete a year.
12 Week Year Goals
The 12-week year plan includes one to three goals with all the tactics or actions you need to execute in order to achieve your 12-week goals. The idea is to list the top priorities that will add the most value and have the greatest impact. You then make sure you complete these actions.
We offer three different custom thermometer goal chart templates. Each one is available in different formats. These charts show your goal progress on a thermometer. For example, when you reach your goal it will be red all the way to the top. When you reach halfway, it will be half red.
Open this goal thermometer in Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets. Set your goal in the green box. Record your progress in the goal tracker section. The thermometer will automatically update itself according to your progress.
This thermometer goal tracker printable can be edited before you print it.
Add the goal to the block under the total. To work out how much to add to each line, take the total amount, and divide it by 20. Add that amount to the bottom line and keep adding that amount to each line above until you reach the total sum.
You can choose any border or background with this printable goal thermometer.

How to Set Goals
For a more detailed step-by-step explanation on how to set goals, see our goal planner.
Step 1: What do I want?
According to Tony Robbins, the clearer you are about what it is you want to achieve, the easier it is to achieve it because your brain can work out how to get there. The “fuel” behind getting there is having a compelling purpose and a reason that will motivate and move you. This purpose is what will get you from where you are to where you want to be. First, you ask yourself, “What do I want?” and only then do you ask, “What am I going to do?”.
Step 2: What am I going to do?
Once you have defined what you want, you can start creating an action plan to take you from where you are to where you want to go. If you use the goal planner above, it will take you through each step page-by-page.
Why is Goal Tracking Important?
It takes time and commitment to achieve challenging goals. Persistence is more important than talent when it comes to achieving goals, according to former US president Calvin Coolidge. You need to put in the effort in order to get results. This requires discipline which is why it’s so important to hold yourself accountable. A goal tracker will hold you accountable and remind you to keep working on your goals. Most people who set goals, give up before they reach them. The only way to achieve your goals is with persistence, hard work, and determination.
Once you have set your goals, use any of our free goal trackers to track your progress. Once you do this you will be able to overcome any obstacle and reach any goal.
