Here's a quick guide to setting goals.
In short, you need to be SMART. Easy right?
S - Specific
Target your behaviour.
I want to lose weight vs. I want to lose 5lbs by April 12th, 2014.
M - Measurable
Can you measure your progress? Taking the example from before, my measurement is weight.
A - Adjustable
Can we change things around? It is important to be able to update your goals. This also really helps in terms of lapses. Sometimes it is important to take a pause on your goals.
R - Realistic
Make sure it is challenging though. No point of a goal if you can do it randomly.
T - Time based
Start and end dates.
- set your goals and make sure you update them
- try to develop strategies to achieve your goals
- depending on what they are make sure you track your progress.
