GOAL SETTING ✍🏼
The new year always sparks people to start thinking about goals, improving, bettering themselves. I personally don’t agree that you need to wait for a new year to actually make a change happen. Change should be constant, we should always be pushing ourselves, evolving, growing, learning and finding ways to be better than the previous day. But I do appreciate that a new year gives people MORE reason to set new goals for their year ahead. The trouble is, most of us have big visions but we give up after a month in. If this sounds like you here are some of my goal setting tips:
1️⃣ BREAK IT DOWN - think of the one thing you want to achieve the most, write it down. Next think of all the little steps that need to happen in order to get closer to that goal. Pick 5 that are easily achievable and plan them in for the next 4-5 weeks. Block out time in your week to go through your goals and cross off small milestones. Slowly start chipping away at things and don’t think about the end goal. A lot of small wins eventually add up to the big one. Once you see even a little bit of progress your motivation will start soaring and things will get that little easier!
2️⃣ BE REALISTIC - you need to set yourself realistic goals if you want a chance in reaching them. Instead of saying you want to buy a house by the end of the year but only have $500 saved, do some basic calculations and figure out how much you can realistically save in 12 months. Then take it month by month and make sure you’re always putting aside the minimum you need to reach that goal. You may well save a whole lot more this way and be closer to buying a house than just giving up because you can’t afford it immediately and getting overwhelmed. .
3️⃣ BE ORGANISED!!!! I can’t stress this one enough. Failing to plan is planning to fail. You can’t expect to lose weight by winging it and having a salad and walking every now any then. PLAN your meals. PLAN your workouts. Every Sunday I book in when my workouts will be for the week and I prep my lunch. BE SMART and PLAN 🏼
