Lauching Project 31! - #Tip1: Goal Setting

Posted On 9:06 PM by Keeven |

Hello people!

Today is the first day of Project 31 and I'm officially launching it. Please join me and share your habits, goals, lifestyle changes that you would like to change. As a kindly reminder, it need not be related to weight loss.

In conjunction with Project 31, I would like to share one of my key to success - Goal Setting. It would be my first tip in helping you achieve your life changing habits. From time to time, I’d be sharing some information with the bloggers that might help with their goals in Project 31. Try it, ignore it but just hear me out.

When it comes to setting a goal, a very old friend taught me the SMART approach.

S – Specific – The Goals should be specific and detailed in writing. For example, instead of saying “I want to stop eating those sweetening food”, try saying “I will stop eating chocolate brownies by 15 September”. And write it down!!! You can write it down here at the comment section so that others will know as well. I want you to be committed.

M – Measurable – If you currently eat 5 chocolate brownies, set yourself a time line. Week 1, 4 per week, Week 2, 3 per day and so on.

A – Action Focused – By writing down your goal and inserting in a time line, you can take appropriate action every day. Do not rush yourself. The key is to take baby steps every day and soon you will see the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

R – Realistic – Set realistic goals! This is usually the main cause of failure. As much as I want you to achieve your goals, I do not want you to fail either. Be ambitious but don't lose your passion through unrealistic expectations.

T – Time Focused – Set a date and time when you will achieve your goal. Otherwise its not a goal, its a wish!!

I hope this is helpful. And I wish everyone good luck!
