As a blogger, it can sometimes be difficult to hold myself accountable. When it comes to writing new posts, I have no one to answer to but myself. I started this blog because I felt like I had a good grasp on how to make daily tasks easier and I wanted to share that. Lately, I haven’t been posting much because I don’t have any accountability. I needed to change that so I decided to try out a goal-setting journal. I did a little searching around and found the “daily goal setter” by Mål Paper.

Since I started using this, I have been holding myself more accountable when it comes to working towards goals in the short and long term sense. It was nice to sit down and really think about what my goals are with this blog and just life in general. The beauty of this journal is that I was able to mix a little bit of both personal and work life.
When I first opened up the goal setter, I was able to find the table of contents which lays out everything that will be inside. I like having a table of contents so I am able to flip around the book and find what I want quickly. Mål Paper has provided information on how to set effective goals. They use the S.M.A.R.T (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and timely) goal strategy to help create effective goals.
One of my favorite parts of the Mål Paper goal-setting journal is that it helps you to create daily, weekly, and monthly routines. First, they give information on how to make these routines work for you and secondly they give you space to write them down. I am one of those people who really benefit from writing things down so this was great for me. A lot of these routines focus on positive events that have happened. Having a gratitude practice built into the journal has been so helpful to remember everything I am thankful for.
What Types of Goals Can I Set?
This goal-setting journal has room to write down long, medium, and short term goals. The goal time limits they have set are as follows:
- Long-Term Goal: Over 1 year
- Medium-Term Goal: 6 months-1 year
- Short-Term Goal: less than a month
I started by creating a few long-term goals. The medium- and short-term goals were smaller goals that could help me to make progress towards the long term goal. This has been really helpful so now I know what to do day by day to know I am doing something towards reaching my long-term goals.
Do I Recommend This?
Planning and writing everything out gives me a lot of confidence that I will one day achieve my long-term goals. Without the information I gained through this goal-setting journal, I would not have sat down and really planned out my goals. Now I know what to do on a daily, monthly, and yearly basis to help further my progress in achieving my goals.
I would recommend this journal all day! I am so happy I decided to try this out. If you are struggling to hold yourself accountable or to reach your big goals and dreams, I would recommend trying out the “daily goal setter”, by Mål Paper.
