Using both sides of a single page for each week, I keep track of the
- Weekly goals
- My points monitor
- My "b-Alert" tracker
- What went right
- What went wrong
I added a transparent pocket to the inside of the book, which I keep my 90 day
goals in. I have 21 goals, divided into seven sections. In part two I'll explain
these sections in more detail.
Each page starts with the date, and then the top three goals I wish to achieve
for the week. I put checkboxes in front of each goal so I can tick them off when
they're complete. The original system had me setting three goals for each day,
but I felt this crowded the page a little too much and also distracted me if I
had goals from the previous day that I hadn't completed.
Underneath this is my points tracker, and then underneath that is my "b-Alert"
tracker. I took the b-Alert system from "The Power of Focus" (reviewed here). I
also use the goal setting tips from the same book to make sure I'm covering the
important aspects of my life. This will be covered in more detail in part
The back of the page is divided into two sections. The top two-thirds is "What
went right", where I note anything important that was achieved. Reading over
this gives me a boost, and helps remind me of what I've achieved during the
The remaining third is "What went wrong", which allows some analysis of where
the week could have been improved. I deliberately kept it to a third to prevent
myself from being overly critical, and also to focus myself on the major issues.
Where possible I use bullet points, as it makes it easier to scan for a quick
overview. It's useful to look over this during my weekly review, as it helps me
find areas for improvement.
In part two, I'll cover the trackers in detail, and also explain how I ensure I
have balance in my goals.
