Step 5: Create a Progress Tracker

After you have made your chart with your long-term and short-term goals for the week, month, or year, it’s time to create a system for tracking. There are a ton of creative ways to track your progress. Some people track with doodles and a key, some might like to use the Level 10 Life style pie chart, but for my goals, I used a simple bar graph, divided in to 5 sections. Each section represents a short-term goal to complete. Once the bar is filled in, your long-term goal will be complete!

Step 6: Color Coordinate with Mildliner Highlighters

However you decide to track your goals progress, the important thing is to make sure you coordinate your tracker with your goals on the first page. This is where your Mildliner Highlighters come in handy! Color coordinating your goals with your progress tracker will ensure you’re keeping everything organized so you can stay on track.

Step 7: Treat Yourself!

The last step to tracking your goals is creating a reward system. For my tracker, I made a box symmetrical to my notes box where I can keep track of things that make me proud! Be sure you write down everything. Even the small or seemingly insignificant achievements can be really fulfilling to look back on. Just be sure whatever reward you’re choosing for your short-term goals won’t take away progress from your long-term goals. For example, if your goal is to save $100 a month, you probably shouldn’t reward yourself by buying something expensive. That’s it! You’re ready to start tracking any goal you set for the week, month, or year. I hope this tutorial has inspired you to get creative when it comes to reaching your goals.
