It doesn’t have to be New Year’s Day to create a list of goals for yourself. You can start with them any time you are ready. Then, organize all the goals so that you can check on them as often as possible. Notion will be a great choice for yourself.
STEP 1 – List Your Goals / Targets
You start with a large piece of paper and list all of your goals. You can classify them by task, by month, by quarter, depending on your choice. Then you upload them all to Notion.
Here’s what I did:
List goals for each month (4-8 workable goals)
Outline your goals on paper
Sort them by region, month, year (whatever)
Include your goals, habits, and learning outcomes, which are required to start putting the ball on the move
STEP 2 – Create a Gallery View
Setting up Gallery View in Notion is the next step.
Here’s how to get started:
Create a new page and title it the way you want. I called mine: “Goals”
Create a new database view named Gallery” using “/” and type “Gallery”
When the gallery view appears, delete previously existing tags
STEP 3 – Add Cards to Gallery View
You start adding goals, quarterly or yearly, if you want. You can also add to-do categories. Personally, the per-month view helps to see the progress of upcoming months.
How to get started with adding tags to gallery view:
Create a new Card for each previous month
For example, the next 6 months of your timeline
Add an icon to each card and start adding your monthly goals
For now, just add them as bullet points
STEP 4 – Customize Card View
Once you’ve added those goals every month, it’s time to customize things a bit. Not too much, but enough to differentiate your focus goal from the one you’ve accomplished.
Here’s how to improve your tag:
Add sections using “/”> “Background” and choose “Background Color”
This helps to improve what has been done and worked in the current and previous months
For example, this is January (just last) for my goals
You can see I’ve converted many bullet points to “To-do” and highlighted them
STEP 5 – Add a list of goals
Of course your goals are important, but how you set up yourself or your “guide” can help you become a better person. I use this list every week to try it out, and my channel works even more weekly.
This is almost a combination of goals and habits that need to be reviewed each week, not as actionable as other monthly goals. I recommend trying something like this. I used a page inside the goal page to create this goal, and used the “Conversions” List options in the menu to create nested bullets for each area of my life.
