The amazing thing about setting goals, is you realize how capable you really are. So many individuals underestimate themselves when it comes to what they can do physically and by manner of will power. Push yourself. Stretch. Set a goal to do something this week that might seem a little challenging. Try to be better in one area or another.
A common formula used in setting your goals is to set SMART goals.
S = SPECIFIC
M = MEASURABLE
A = ATTAINABLE
R = REALISTIC
T = TIMELY
Mondays seem to be the "start over" day for a lot of people. Set a goal for yourself for this week. Run it through the SMART checklist and see if your goal measures up. Make THIS week the week you change. Make THIS week the week you start onto that healthy path that you have been thinking about for days, months, and maybe even years. Stop making excuses as to why you aren't going to change, and make this your week. I love the Nike, "just do it," motto. It is so true. Stop complaining, stop giving reasons why you haven't, and for goodness sake stop pushing your beginning date back further and further into the endless future. Just do it. Decide today what you're going to change, and start NOW.
What is your goal for the week? Do you have something you have been wanting to accomplish or start at that you haven't quite tackled yet? Make it a priority this week. You will never accomplish goals that you don't give priority to. Give yourself a time line. Make your goal SMART. Just do it.
