TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE
2015 Productivity Journal
2015 Productivity Journal 2
A goal without a plan is just a wish.
~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery
INSTRUCTIONS:
Your Transform Your Life 2015 Productivity Journal is both an attachment to
the Quick Start Guide and can be used as a stand-alone Journal as you take
this journey to achieving your goals and developing greater success in your
life. You can fill this out on your computer and safe it, or you can print it off,
three hole punch the edges and put it in your personal binder.
A. While it might be easier to use it on the computer, neurologically it is better to perform the writing
by hand on paper. You will find that the Productivity Journal is helpful either online or in paper-pencil
format, but you’ll also find that using a paper and pencil will speed the process.
B. Within the Quick Start Guide specific pages of this Productivity Journal are referenced. You should
fill in all blanks. This Journal is your creation and your foundation for the changes you make in the
coming 12 months.
C. If you start your Productivity Journal mid-way through 2015 you’ll be getting a 2016 Productivity
Journal to complete your journey. Make a commitment RIGHT NOW to use this Journal for the full 12
months to realize your potential, productivity and your goals.
D. The first several pages are places to record your mission, vision, long-term and short-term goals.
There is a graphical explanation of the Goal Positioning Strategy, monthly calendars and quarterly
checkups.
E. The next pages have places for you to record your quarterly milestones and monthly action plans
to keep you focused and moving toward your goals.
2015 Productivity Journal 3
Record your MISSION or the foundation of your life.
Developing your mission, vision and goals is found inside the Quick Start Guide.

CHANGES
These are areas in life which will fit with your mission and vision for your life. They are a part of
everyone’s life – whether you have them or not. In the following pages consider how you want to
improve these areas to fit your vision for the next 3 years. Write out where you want to be in the
next 12 months in each area as if you have already accomplished the goal.

NEXT:
Write down the obstacles that have prevented you from accomplishing these improvements. Use the
discoveries from the Quick Start Guide to direct your process. Knowing what to avoid in this next year
is a key factor in accomplishing your goals. Think very hard about your answer to the question: “Why
haven’t you achieved your goals?” Even a short notation can help you overcome what’s been holding
you back.

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
~ C.S. Lewis
On the next pages you will breakdown your goals from your vision and the improvements you want
to make in your life into quarterly milestones. Each 3 months will represent an endpoint. Every three
months you’ll re-evaluate your progress, write new goals for the coming quarter and push forward to
achieve your annual goals.
QUESTION?
When you arrive at December 31, 2015 . . . who will you be? If you were meeting yourself for the
first time, how would you describe yourself after achieving your goals for 2015?

Without goals and plans to reach them,
You are like a ship that set sail with no destination.
~ Fitzhugh Dodson
2015 Productivity Journal 10
Action Plan Guidelines
The next section of the Productivity Journal will walk you through the steps
you need to take in order to achieve your goals. We’ll help you break down
the action steps month by month, week by week and day by day so you
have a plan to follow.
A. On the next page is a one year template calendar for your monthly
action plan to achieve the changes you outlined on pages 4 - 6 above.
Look at each change you want to see in your life over the next year and write down the steps you’ll
take each month in order to achieve them.
For instance, if you want to lose 30 pounds in the next 12 months you’ll set a goal for how much
weight you want to lose each month. A REASONABLE goal is 4 pounds a month. Now you want to
decide HOW to lose 4 pounds a month what nutritional plan you’ll follow, how much exercise,
sleep, water and support you’ll need. In monthly blocks on the next page you’ll write down what
you’ll do each month – how much walking, what trackers you’ll use, who is your support person, etc.
You can print this yearly Action Planner for each goal or write 2-3 goals on one page. It depends
upon how much you REASONABLY believe you can achieve each month.
Do not over extend yourself. It’s better to achieve a small goal and feel really good, than to fall short
of a big goal and feel as if you failed.
B. Each Quarter you have a Planner to write more specific actions to reach your goals for that
quarter.
C. The last page of this Productivity Journal has a Weekly Calendar Template which you should print
out each week. This is your personal Journal to record both your plans for the coming week and your
results from the previous week.
Print one journal page each week [save paper printing front and back]. Write your daily plans next to
the lines with boxes and check those off when you have accomplished the task to achieve your goals.
At the end of the week write down how it felt to finish what you did, whether you tried to do too
much or not enough and how you’ll change your plan for the following week.
Looking back over this weekly journal in the coming weeks will help you define your strengths and
weakness in your action plans. This helps you include what works and get rid of what doesn’t.

FIRST QUARTER ACTION PLAN
Just because they are listed here does NOT mean you MUST have something written in each blank.
In fact, if you concentrate on just 2 or 3 areas each quarter you are more likely to achieve your goals
than if you get overwhelmed. However, since we don’t know your specific goals, every area will be
represented each quarter. You can choose 2 or 3 of the same or different areas for your action plan
each quarter, depending upon your goals and how quickly you move forward.
