I am not here to blog to you about NOT setting goals. I am writing to give you advice on how to keep them. This time of year you are blasted with commercials for “quick fix” products.
The number one thing to remember about your goal is:
1. Long term success. What ever your vice, you didn’t get there overnight so you will not reverse it by tomorrow. Set small goals for yourself. One month out, 3 months out, 6 months out… etc.
2. Write it down. You will be more accountable for your actions if your goals are written down. Place it somewhere you look daily. A mirror, the fridge, closet door… etc.
Reality vs expectations. Many view the start of the year as a cleaning of the slate. No turning back. No slip ups. Be realistic! You are going to have those moments of failure. Slip up. Shake it off. Get back up.
