Did you make a new year's resolution this year? Whether you did or not it's still early in the year so it's a great time to think about what you can do to be a ‘better person'.

Being ‘better' doesn't mean you have to be the ‘best', ‘smartest,' ‘fittest' or ‘coolest'.

The best thing you can ever be is YOU! Let's make some fun goals so that you can be the best version of yourself!

Less is more

It's not about how many goals you can make but about choosing the ones that are the most important to you. Three goals maximum is a good amount. They need to be achievable too!

What kind of goals should I make?

Your goals can be about anything but consider these things to get you started:

  • School
  • Family and friends
  • Charity/helping others
  • Hobbies


To make sure your goals are all different and exciting for you, write one goal for each of the themes below:


Think about all the things you are passionate about and would love to get even better at. If you can't think of something straight away that's fine too. To get started you can write down a list of all the wonderful things you love to do and pick the most important one for your ‘passion' goal.


What do you feel you need to improve on? It could be anything from maths to helping more at home or being nicer to people at school. An improvement goal is about getting better at something we don't do very well now.


This goal is all about trying something new. Do you want to learn how to cook a certain kind of meal? Learn a new language? Run in a fun run for charity? Join a new club? Keep a diary? What sounds fun for you? Write it down!


How will this happen?

Once you have set your goals you need to make an action plan! How are you going to achieve your goals so you can be the best version of you?

For example if your goal was; ‘keep a diary' you need to know which diary you will use, how often you will write in it and how you will stay motivated to keep writing.



It's not about beating anyone; it's about learning, improving and trying your best. Tell other people about

your goals too so they can help you stay on track.
