52 Weeks of Creative Goals & Prompts

Last week I shared my word of the year and how I plan to keep up with it throughout the year. One of the ways I plan to do so is by writing a prompt or a goal at the beginning of each week in my planner for the entire year. I have 3 different areas I’m working on so I have 3 goals written at the beginning of each week. I snagged my health/fitness goals from another site, but I put together my own list for my creative goals and my spiritual growth goals. The latter one will be another post. I started the second day of the year with the stomach bug so my health and fitness goals are off to a rough start. I’m still feeling a bit icky but am hoping to get back on track soon.




This list encompasses several different areas of creativity, as well as a few general ideas. I just wanted to share with you what I’m doing. You can take it as is or adapt it to suit your own creative interests, but don’t be afraid to try something new. I definitely put a few things on this list that I’ve not done before, and I’m excited to see where it leads. The whole point is that it gets you thinking more creatively, using parts of your brain that maybe don’t get exercised as much, and trying out new ways of doing things.
