The Best Year Reflection & Goal Setting Worksheet for Kids & Adults
The older our kids get, the more time we spend discussing what their goals are for the future: What GPA do you want to graduate with? What sports team would you like to make? What can you do to be helpful to someone else?
With a new year upon us, it a great time to have everyone in your family take just a bit of time to ponder through the previous year and to make some goals for the new year! It would be a great idea to make a night of it. Celebrate the past year and look forward to the new year with a fun family dinner, a few games and a brief time to reflect and goal set!

Hope the kids enjoyed them…even if they don’t enjoy them now, they’ll love looking back at them in 20 years!
I saw this on youtuber CreativePlanner’s video from Jan 2015. In case you didn’t know.
Love this as something to do over the holidays. Never too early to prep for new year’s goals.
I agree! We have our entire family do this every year!
Oh I love this!! Thanks so much for the adorable printable to bring in the new year 🙂
I LOVE THIS! I’m going to print off one for each of our kids AND one for my husband and I to fill out and we will all compare/read our answers. This is such a fun way to look back on the year and make fun yet attainable goals for the year ahead!
Thanks so much! Happy New Year! 🙂

That’s so awesome, Heather!! Thanks for sharing with me!
Heather, Thank you so much for this great post. I am a life coach. I shared on my blog(http://www.rklifecoach.com/how-do-you-plan-family-goals/), information from several sources about making family goals and having a family meeting. I shared a link to your post and some of the information I most appreciated from it. I love the ideas for reflecting what you want to change this year, including “what I am proud of” and “things I want to try.” I also used these ideas when making goals with my family.
AWESOME! Thanks so much for sharing, Rebekah!! I’m going to hop over to your site to check it out.
I love this printable! I was wondering if I could use this in a blog post I’m writing for my church on ways to look back and look ahead? I know that it is copyrighted, so I don’t know what the rules are with using it somewhere else. Thank you!

I can’t figure out how to download it…
Click the pink button at the bottom of the post! If nothing appears to be happening when clicking the button, make sure you have your pop up blocker turned off!
Hi Heather, the pink button isn’t working for me either to download, would you kindly email the new year goal setting worksheet please? Thank you

Hi Heather – can we please use this ‘best year reflection’ for kids involved on our social impact project https://nacfun.com , to keep kids active and healthy . On NacFun.com children receive video, image. picture quiz, and various co-curricular activities to perform. They get points for each activity performed and submitted. That helps them climb leaderboard and win monthly prizes. Essentially we keep them engaged in activities away from the screen to help them manage their screen time.
Giving your activity sheet we will ask kids to complete offline and submit responses. Based upon the response we will pick best entries can give them a small prize. Hope you have no objection to this. May be you can even help us select the best responses!
Can I get printable version of your “The Best Year”
