5 Steps to always meet your goals!!
Step 1- Come up with an end goal! This goals needs to be the big picture goal that you would like to accomplish. It may take 6 months, 1 year, or even more to achieve. Examples: lose 100lbs, run a marathon, or squat 500lbs
Step 2-Set smaller achievable goals. I would set these goals on a monthly basis and make sure they are achievable! Examples: lose 5lbs, be able to run 1 mile without stopping, or increase your squat max by 5lbs
Step 3-Set action steps that you can achieve each week. Make sure these steps are achievable and measurable. Do not say just, “I am going to run more or eat better, put a number on it!” Examples: “I am going to eat fast food no more than 1 time this week, I am going to do running workouts at least 3 times this week, or I am going to follow the Wendler 5-3-1 method for squats”.
Step 4-Re-assess each month. Did you meet your small goal? Did you follow your action steps each week? If not, why not? Answer these questions as honestly as possible, then, set next months goals. Some months or weeks you may not meet your action steps. Learn from your mistakes, re-evaluate your action steps and goals, but KEEP MOVING FORWARD.
Step 5-Write out each of these steps and look at them daily! Consistency is key!
