TikToker @bridgiecasey raved over The Year Compass template, saying, "helps me look at my life holistically and not just on things I've achieved, but the way that I felt in different areas of my life."
The template provides several prompts to reflect on the past year by writing down moments in your career, with your relationships, health, etc. It includes the same prompts for your New Year ahead, while also focusing on forgiveness, letting go and a word that you would like to symbolize the year.
If you are super detail-oriented and love crossing off your to-do list, this template is for you. User @youareloved_movement shared how she strategically plans every aspect of her day, week, month and year ahead. From checking off boxes after each goal is completed to tracking her progress with a statistics tracker, her spreadsheet is next level.
"You must start with a plan to turn goals into habits," she shared in her video.
If spreadsheets aren't your jam, influencer @claire.elis shared a handy layout that will still help you set your intentions and reach your goals. She has four separate sections that include lifestyle, career, relationships and health and mind.
Put simply, she said, "I just do bullet points of everything I want."
Afterward, she'll write down what she wants to either achieve or leave behind in the New Year with prompts that include "I want to quit," "I want to start," "I want to learn," etc. Lastly, she picks a word that encompasses her intentions.
TikToker @nikidetrich and her BFF created a template that focuses on goals to reach each month instead of for the whole year.
"I really feel we've been doing New Year's resolutions wrong," the influencer began her video, before sharing that she co-designed the "Create Your Year" format where you "come up with a new goal for every single month and then at the end you put it all together."
Niki listed January as her health and fitness month, whereas she plans to focus on her home space in February. And while each month serves its own purpose, she did note that December is meant for "all" of them combined to "make these things better habits in the future."
User @hannah.mcbrearty took inspiration from The 12 Week Year book and plans a years-worth of goals in just three months. As she reiterated in her video, "Yes, bitch, I said three months."
Prioritizing her goals and strategizing how she's going to tackle them in a short period has helped her "accomplish a lot," she revealed. But her biggest "cheat code" for being able to hold herself accountable is that she schedules time in her calendar to work on them, making them mandatory to-dos.
Using the old-school method of drawing an outline, @k8lynanderson swears by this method. In the middle box, titled Goals, she'll jot down a couple of sentences about what she hopes to accomplish within a year and add a target date in mind. Next, she maps out her goals, writing down two max, for other aspects of her life, including finances, relationships, self-development, etc.
