A Quick Tip - #3
It's been a little while but I'm back with another quick tip - #3!
BE AS SPECIFIC AS POSSIBLE ABOUT THE RESULTS YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE
After years and years...and years of setting goals for myself and outright failing, I've learned a thing or two. And you've probably heard this tip once or twice in your life as well. Be specific about what it is you want to achieve.
We've all done it. "I want to be healthier this year!" or "I want to be happier in 2021." Don't get me wrong, these are great goals to have, but you set yourself up for failure when you over-generalize your ambitions.
What does being healthy mean to you? When do you feel your happiest?
For me, I feel my healthiest when I'm working out at least 3 times a week. That roughly means 12 times a month. So, I use my workout tracker printable (sold on the shop!) to set specific goals for each month and I'm held accountable by seeing how many times I've actually exercised.
Being happier might mean spending more time with loved ones rather than scrolling on your phone or logging off of work a bit earlier than you're used to in order to focus on a new hobby for an hour a day. Whether it's the workout tracker or your weekly or daily inserts, use your planner in an efficient way so that you can track if you're actually working towards this goal or not.
Whatever it is you're trying to achieve, set yourself up to succeed by discovering on a deep level, what it is these generalized goals mean to you.
What's one goal you could be a lot more specific about?
