Refocus is a simple printable template that allows you to lay out a handful of goals and track your adherence to those goals over the next 30 days.
Tracking goals in a concrete and visual way is an excellent motivational tool. The Seinfeldian Chain, previously covered here, is certainly a strong example of the effectiveness and popularity of the technique when used as motivation for a single goal. The ReFocus worksheet allows you to track up to five goals over a month. From the author’s web site:
The end result looks like a cross between a Scantron form and Benjamin Franklin’s Thirteen Virtues form. The purpose of this form is purely to give me a sense of accomplishment and to give feedback when I’m being unfocused. I still need to keep track of tasks that need to get done, but management of tasks and analysis of progress are now separated.
Each circle is filled in completely, halfway, or not at all to indicate whether you made progress. If your goal was to eat healthy food and you ate a great breakfast and dinner but went out for lunch and ate fast food, you might, for example, fill in a half circle for that day. To the side there is space for notes.
