SMART Goals

Morning all, 

Time for a #TrainingTips post.

How badly do you want to achieve your goals and how are you going to get there?

I talk quite a bit about having goals and different ways to maintain focus to achieve them, but now I’m going to give you the blueprint to making sure the goals you set are right and achievable for you.

I follow this system with all my own goal setting and its worked pretty well for me so far.

A usual goal for most people is fat reduction and to look more athletic.  But why do people only think about really doing something about it, by eating healthier and hitting the gym more when the summer months are almost upon them?  Quick fixes are not real and are unsustainable, FACT!!  If it was that easy there would be no such thing as obesity and we would all look fantastic.  The reality is it takes time to do things which can last a life time.  With fat reduction for summer in mind the perfect way to do it is to build our bodies through the winter to be enjoyed through the summer.

Anyway back to the system and this is not a new thing which has only just been discovered, its been around for many years.  All our goals need to be SMART, when we break down the word SMART we have a guide to achievement.

 

S.M.A.R.T.

Specific – Be specific about what you what you want to achieve.  Having a goal of I would like to be rich has too wide a scope.  How are you going to get rich, what do you need to do? What do you need to learn? Where do you need to go?.

Measurable – Can you measure your way to your goal and track your progress?  How much? How many?  How will you know when you have achieved your goal?

Achievable – Is your goal actually achievable?  I’d love to fly a fighter plane going faster than the speed of sound but I know full well I will probably never do it, so its not a goal for me.

Realistic – Your goal should stretch your limits but not too far that its out of reach.  Are you in control of the path toward your goal?

Time – Set deadlines and milestones.  Make sure you see them everyday.

All goals are achievable if you are realistic and specific with your goal choices, you give yourself time to achieve them and track your progress.  Get making SMART goals.

 

Have a great weekend guys. 

 

Stay strong and live, love and laugh!
