The new year is almost here, and whether you’re looking back at the last 12 months with fondness or a full-body shudder, the great thing about the year changing is that it’s a chance to start fresh with a new batch of resolutions! 

And yes, we know some experts say setting goals on New Year’s is arbitrary, but those particular experts are no fun and aren’t invited to our New Year’s Eve party. Besides, we’ve rounded up our favorite templates to prove them wrong, from templates to help you make resolutions to templates to help you keep resolutions.

Yearly resolutions

Here it is: the first step to showing those resolutions who’s the boss of 2024 (you). You’ve got to write down your resolutions—without a written account of what you actually want to achieve, you just have wishes, not goals. This yearly resolutions template will help keep your resolutions in a central place and help you refine and define them so you’re motivated without being overwhelmed. Plus, it has a month-by-month playbook to keep you on track.

Team New Year’s resolutions

Sure, your team probably has KPIs and OKRs, but have you all gotten together to discuss and plan personally meaningful resolutions? Probably not. And that means you’ll never know about your engineer Brian’s fervent desire to deep fry every item in Costco’s dessert aisle. Help him keep his resolution by tracking it with this team New Year’s resolutions template

Annual calendar

This all-purpose, annual calendar is great for keeping a bird’s eye view on the year ahead. You can easily input campaigns, vacations, or anything else in one place. Share with just a click so your entire team has access to the calendar and can easily adjust dates or add comments to plans. It’s a simple but powerful tool to make sure nothing important is missed and keep everyone informed on what’s coming up.

Daily schedule template

If you find your time lost in an eternal scroll, it’s time to get back to basics: give yourself a schedule. It’s easy to pick up your phone and lose an hour when there’s nothing concrete on the schedule. With this daily schedule template, your day is mapped out, so you cut down on feeling overwhelmed and instead can plan ahead, prioritize, and work in meaningful breaks.

Gratitude jar activity

It’s much easier to focus on lack instead of abundance. After all, there’s always something new to crave, and it’s tempting to start comparing your entire life with others’ curated snapshots (looking at you, social media). Shift that perspective with this gratitude jar activity. Learn what your team is grateful for—you’ll all leave the activity with a greater appreciation for the lives you have, and you’ll likely feel a greater bond as a team.
