Let's break it down

Always have time for what’s important

There's never enough time. You have to guard it with your life (because it IS your life). Scheduling time for what's important is a no-brainer.

Once you've got your calendar in google sheets together, you can use it to create boundaries. When a coworker invites you to get wasted after work – Sorry, I've got that time reserved for something else. When your roommate asks you to help paint the walls on Saturday – Sorry, I've got to work on my goals. I'd love to help, though. You can check my online calendar for available days of the week.

Achieve your goals

And that’s not all, scheduling time for your goals is the most important part of getting them done. According to  productivity superstar James Clear:


Instead of giving yourself a deadline to accomplish a particular goal by (and then feeling like a failure if you don’t achieve it), you should choose a goal that is important to you and then set a schedule to work towards it consistently.
James Clear
By scheduling your goals on an event calendar, you can stay focused on them. After getting into the habit of working on them you'll build momentum. Then all those days of the week will become an entire month and finally an entire year. And that's how you can use your google spreadsheet templates calendar to create progress.

Sticking to a routine also improves the quality of your work. Routines and templates can help you make fewer mistakes.

And I'm sure you already understand how important it is to keep an annual budget when your plotting to take over the world. Only the best budget templates will help you reach that one. 

Increase opportunities

Did you know that keeping a yearly calendar can improve your reputation? We all know that person. The one who is always disorganized, late and sometimes completely misses dates.

Adding events to a calendar can make you more dependable and reliable. Having a reputation for being prompt and organized opens doors. And when opportunity knocks, you'll be ready.

So now you're ready to start and probably wondering:

Similarly, you can use the habit tracker template to keep tabs on anything you'd like to keep up with. You can use it to start a new habit or track your progress on an existing one.

I made room for 3 habits you can track. You can fill them in on the left and duplicate on the right. Or use the right side for notes.

To Do List Template

This to do list is different from the habit tracker in that it's not meant for daily habits with a short time frame. It's for those big project management tasks that you have looming over your head. You know, the ones that seem to need a gantt chart?


I've found that breaking projects into manageable tasks is key to actually getting them done. This template helps with that by letting you:

- Break your project into smaller tasks.
- Set a due date for each task.
- Track your progress.
- Feel a sense of accomplishment as you check things off the list!
