If you are like many people, you are in the process of setting some new goals for 2024.
Sorry about this, but – if you are like most of those people – you will fail.
Here are some tips to increase your chances of success:
*Start Small. If you have not been working out, then setting a goal to workout for an hour everyday is probably not going to happen. Start with something much more doable for the first few months – maybe two or three times a week for fifteen minutes.
*Make Your Goals Specific and Measurable. This way you will be able to clearly monitor success. Ask yourself “how will I know I am making progress on my goal?”
*Make a Realistic Plan. Any new goal requires thoughtful consideration of your plan – and keep it simple. A complicated plan increases your chances of failure.
*Connect Your Plan to a Calendar. Depending on your goal, there will probably be better or worse times to work on your goal. Make sure that your calendar supports your chances of success. For example, many people choose to workout in the morning so they are not drawn into last minute meetings that run past the workday.
*Seek and Reward Progress. If you wanted to work out twice in the first week of the new year and you did one workout, then give yourself a “star.” That is more than you did the prior week. If something happened that thwarted your plan, then adjust it moving forward.
Good luck with your New Year’s Goals and have a SuperFantastic 2024!
