I am not a big New Year’s Resolutionist. If I set them too quickly, without a lot of thought, they usually aren’t right for the long term and I give up. If I spend too much time setting them, the year is too far into it and I give up. Sometimes I set them too hard and challenging, so I give up. Rarely do I set them too easy but when I do, they are over before I even get the satisfaction of working on them. Sense a theme here? I give up on them.
Goals should be in constant evolution as you grow and change. When you realize there is something you want, figure out how to obtain it and go for it. Don’t wait for the New Year to start your weight-loss journey, your sub 3:00 marathon, your quest for all the 4,000 footers in NH, the list goes on and on.
So what are you waiting for! Just because New Year’s Day has passed doesn't mean it is too late or too early to set those goals. Goals are motivation!
Set your goal.
Set when you want to achieve your goal.
Write down the steps needed to achieve your goal, including mini goals.
