3 Easy Tools to Create and Track your 2023 Goals

The annual flip of the calendar will soon be upon us and, along with it, countless resolutions will be made.

Motivation levels run high on that first wake up of the new year. Whether the focus is around saving more money, getting healthier or advancing a career, everyone is off to the races with sights set on new and improved versions of themselves.

But here is the reality.

Multiple studies show that only 9% of people keep their New Year’s resolutions or goals.


Are 91% of us not trying hard enough? Nah.

Do 91% of us not want it bad enough? Nope.

The reality is that goals or change can be difficult to achieve. Goals take thoughtful planning, discipline, commitment, and time. Absent those key factors, it is easy to become a “91-percenter.”

So how do you become one of the success stories in 2023, or a “9-percenter?” 

Here are 3 easy tools to identify, create and track your 2023 goals:

1. The Wheel of Life

Identifying a goal, or goals, is step one. That may sound like a no-brainer, but my guess is that you have quite a full plate. And that full plate might make it a bit more difficult to see or identify what sort of goal would have the greatest impact on improving your quality of life. The Wheel of Life is a coaching tool commonly used to help individuals evaluate their level of satisfaction across 8 different dimensions of life – Health and Fitness, Relationships, Finances, Career, Family and Friends, Emotional Well-Being, Social and Leisure and Personal Growth. Evaluating each dimension allows you to visually see which aspects of life are off balance and will benefit from goal setting.  You can download a free Wheel of Life worksheet in the 2023 Goal Planning Package below.  

2. SMART goals worksheet

Creating a framework for your goals is an effective way to organize your thoughts and begin building a realistic action plan. The SMART goal worksheet (which stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Timely) methodically walks you through each component of a goal and creates a structure to support your success. You can download a free SMART goals worksheet in the 2023 Goal Planning Package below.

3. Habit tracking digital apps

There are some great daily habit tracker apps available that allow you to set reminders, monitor your progress and measure your success. For anyone struggling to stay accountable this is a great and discreet reminder system to help keep you motivated. Habit Tracker is a free, daily habit tracking app that allows you to choose from a list of common supportive habits like water intake, exercise, or journaling – or you can customize your own habit to track as well. It’s user friendly and you can track multiple habits simultaneously.

These are just a few of the great resources out there to help you craft your 2023 goals and stay accountable all throughout the year!
