goal setting: success secret #1
write it down
The easiest goals to achieve are those that are clearly defined. Start by setting a goal that is challenging to meet, but not impossible to achieve, and write answers to the following questions:
- What is your goal?
- What is your time line for achieving this goal?
- What are you willing to do to achieve it?
- What are you willing to give up in order to achieve it?
- Who can help you achieve it and who may be a challenge?
Be specific! Writing it down helps clarify what you are really after, and keeping it in a visible place can be great motivation to stick with it. This applies not only to fitness goals, but to all the goals in your life, so write it down, post it up, and let others rely on luck!
