2 Months Left

20121101-075155.jpg

There are two months left in the year. What goals that you set to accomplish at the beginning of the year can still be accomplished?

We often set goals higher than we can achieve because we are excited and passionate about changing our lives. With two months left, the key to reaching goals is effectively setting goals. With 9 weeks left, only so much can be done so I recommend setting 3 S.M.A.R.T. goals for the remainder of the year.

S – Specific
M – Measurable
A – Attainable
R – Realistic
T – Timely

S.M.A.R.T goals allow is to create realistic goals that can be accomplished in a certain time period. Each goal should have 1-3 plans associated with it and at least one person in our life who can hold us accountable to accomplishing the goal.

For example, someone’s goal could be to lose 10lbs by the end if the year. That is about 1lbs a week. It’s a S.M.A.R.T. goal. Plans connected to this goal could be:

1. Engage in three 30 minute high impact workouts per week.

2. Eliminate sodas and juices from my diet.

3. Stop eating after 7pm.

The final step would be to invite someone to be a goal partner who can shoot for this goal with you or an accountability partner who can ask you about your goal weekly.

Implementing these steps could help you gain some momentum going into next year. Later we’ll discuss how to plan for the year.
