With this checklist, you can write out your goals and dreams. Figure out where you are right now in terms of achieving those goals and what you need to do to get to them.

From Printable To Do List, this bland, yet effective to do list template comes as either a Word doc or PDF, and is fantastic for quickly putting your tasks to paper. It even has empty boxes to tick off your tasks as you go along – no messy strikethroughs here.
