SMART Recovery Tool: Change-Plan Worksheet

  • Point 1: Build and Maintain Motivation
  • Point 4: Live a Balanced Life

Now that you identified what you want for your future and what you need to do to get there, you need a plan. In the Change-Plan worksheet, identify steps you can take toward your goal (envisioned future) and consider people who can help you get there. Create strategies to help you progress and identify signs that show you’re making progress. If a strategy doesn’t work, don’t give up; use it as an opportunity to try something different.

You may also use this tool as a problem-solving worksheet because it can help you break large problems into smaller steps to focus your efforts so that you don’t get overwhelmed.
