I used to have a tradition of making New Year's resolutions. I decided this is a waste of time. And it's not that I'm going to break them. It's more that I believe setting goals is organic, something that evolves with me. I constantly change directions and I like being able to start over every day if I need to.
This last Christmas I thought I really should touch base with family and friends and let them know that our family is well and find out how they are all doing. I wondered how long it had been since I contacted my own brother, weeks? Months? We usually keep in touch via email but that has been few and far between.
At my age I just can't take it for granted that my family, siblings and cousins are always going to be there, and me either, for that matter. So I decided I really want to do a better job of keeping in touch with family and close friends.
The top printable is A5 size and the bottom is 8 x 11.
There is room to fill in contact information. X marks the box that is the easiest way to contact them. Frequency can be marked with
D = daily, W = weekly,
M = monthly, Q = quarterly
or Y = yearly.
The tracker allows me to mark how often that contact wants or needs to be contacted, then there are monthly boxes that I can mark when I contacted them last.
Remember, you can access my FREE Library of printables just by signing up for my email list.
Here are some bigger pictures so you can see detail:

|This is the A5 size. It does need to be trimmed.|
Speaking of another non-resolution,
here is a picture of my fitness spread:
As you can hopefully see, each triangle is worth 15 minutes. I get to color in a triangle for every15 minutes I spend gardening, doing household chores, taking a walk, shopping, or on the treadmill, yoga or strength training. You'd be surprised how motivating
it is to be able to color in a square.
I doodle in the larger squares (usually a journey of Harry Potter through one of his books = total nerd, I know). It's kinda like reaching smaller goals along the way.
This one has not been made into a printable yet--still trying to figure it out. It didn't work out so well in Excel.
Happiest of New Years to you!!
