Goal setting is a powerful process for thinking about your future, and for motivating yourself to turn this vision of the future into reality. The process of setting goals helps you choose where you want to go in life. By knowing precisely what you want to achieve, you know where you have to concentrate your efforts. You will also quickly spot the distractions that would otherwise lure you from your course. However, effective goal setting require careful planning.
Spend some time brainstorming and then select one or more goals that best reflect what you want to do. As you do this, make sure that the goals that you have set are ones that you genuinely want to achieve. Once you have set your lifetime goals, set a 5-year plan of smaller goals that you should complete if you are to reach your lifetime plan. Then set a 1-year plan, 6-month plan, and a 1-month plan of progressively smaller goals that you should reach to achieve your lifetime goals. Then create a daily to-do list of things that you should do today to work towards these goals. At an early stage these goals may be to read books and gather information on the achievement of your goals. This will help you to improve the quality and realism of your goal setting.
The following are some goal setting tips to help you set effective goals:
Losing weight, toning up, and gaining muscle are familiar goals for most people. Unfortunately, they are rarely enough to keep you going, even after seeing progress. A goal that forces you to step out of your comfort zone is what you need to truly get excited about healthy activities. Sign up for a special cooking class or technique like making sushi, Thai cooking, gluten-free baking, or vegetarian cooking.
Finally review your plans, and make sure that they fit the way in which you want to live your life.
