Got goals? We all do...Want to accomplish your goals? We all do. Know how to accomplish your goals and what steps to take? That's where it get's dicey...I don't profess to have the answers BUT here are some things that have been working....
Write your goals down.
Put them out there.
Goals need to be seen/heard and force you to be accountable.
Post them where you can see them/refer to them everyday!
Get a coach. Find someone or someone(s) to help keep you accountable.Could be a person at work, a trainer at the gym, financial advisor, nutritionist OR even use social media!
Everything goes on the calendar! Workouts, meetings, calls you need to make, free time, date night, taking the kids to school...If it ain't on the calendar, it doesn't exist.
Hit the reset button every once in a while - resets are uncomfortable but take a step back, look at what's getting in your way and fix it.
Cleanse. Clean the garage, get rid of old clothes, buy a new pillow to sleep better, toss/donate the junk food and crap you no loner need/use.
Realize that you cannot do it all and cannot have balance everyday. Spread it out. Sometimes work will take priority, other days you’ll have more time for exercise. Some weeks it’ll be hard to take the kids to school...But focus and challenge yourself to achieve better balance overall. Weekly, monthly and ultimately annually.
Don't jump ahead! Take it one day at a time and be realistic. If you don’t go to the gym now, don’t start taking 7 classes a week as of January 1st. If you're not making a million dollars a year, don't think you can just double your income overnight. If you're not eating well, start with one or two good meals a week and small cutbacks. It's a process and a lifestyle. Not a quick fix.
Here are my goals - some are from last year to see where I succeeded and where I failed. Other's are for this year and where I'd like to move forward and focus. I find that putting them out there really helps motivate me to get things done.
