People who set goals are far more successful than people who do not set goals. However, there are keys to goal setting that can improve your chances of success even more. Use the goal setting tool to set SMaRT goals for changing your lifestyle and losing weight.
SMaRT – Specific, Measurable, and Realistic within a Time frame. SPECIFIC goals are ones that clearly state what you want to accomplish and by when. Include completion dates and desired level of performance.
MEASURABLE goals help you know whether you have achieved your goal. The first step to making a goal measurable is to write it down. Next is to include on each goal statement a clause that says, “…as evidenced by ____________.” This way, you can clearly see if you met your goal.
Goals that are REALISTIC within a TIME FRAME ensure that you don’t try to do something that can’t be achieved or can’t be maintained. Unrealistic goals can lead to feelings of failure which reduce motivation and the ability to make changes. Sometimes it is best to take a big goal and break it down into more realistic, smaller goals.
