Develop Your Action Plan

Your action plan defines how you will accomplish your goal.

The first step is to break things out into manageable pieces.

  • Copy 1 goal that you identified and paste it into the field labelled “goal.”
  • Break each goal into smaller steps: these are the tasks you need to complete to achieve your goal.
  • Figure out when you'll achieve each task.
  • Add as many tasks as you need to complete your larger goal.
  • Print or email your action plan.
  • Repeat the steps above for each goal you identified.

See an example below.

Next, identify any barriers to your goals >


Here's an example of an action plan for what one of your goals might be if your dream is to have a business of your own.
