To reach a destination, we have to journey through a specific route. Similarly, we need to follow a certain route to reach our goal. Setting a goal thus provides us with a guide map to reach the final destination. Setting a goal prevents us from wandering about and ascertains which direction we should go and what we should do.
Prioritise What Is Important Focus only on the significant things. The moment we get clear about what we want to accomplish in life, it becomes easier to prioritise the right things.
Lucidity In Making Decisions Once we are all set about what our goals are, going about it already gets easier.
Lets You Take Charge Of Your Future. Having a fixed aim is the preliminary requirement of building a firm future. Wandering about life without having a plan would never contribute to a successful future.
Keeps You Motivated Setting a goal keeps us motivated to achieve them. Every time we think of the accomplishment, we would make it pump us up to work towards it.
Yields Accountability Setting goals ensure accountability. Emotional attachment to our goals makes us accountable to ourselves for our actions in daily life.
Ushers Personal Satisfaction Every baby step we take towards reaching our goals is progress. Realization of this progress develops a sense of self-efficacy and self-reliance, leading to our personal satisfaction.
Goal setting is key to staying on track and achieving your goals. Make sure your goals are S.M.A.R.T.
Specific Measurable Achievable Realistic Timebound
We recommend starting off by setting a goal that will help you form a habit. For example “I want to get up early three times per week and work out for 30 minutes, and during the weekend I’ll go for a walk”
What If you skip a workout?
Don’t worry about it! There’s no need to make up the time by fitting in an additional workout. The most important thing is to get back into the flow and keep enjoying yourself.
Is weight loss a good goal?
It’s more important to track how you feel than what the scales say. Healthy habits happen when you feel good physically and emotionally. If you like to weigh yourself, do it once a week, at the same time of the day. But be aware that there are lots of factors that influence body weight and scales aren’t the best indicator of success.
