It’s that time of year again when you get to reflect on what you didn’t achieve the year before and where you want to make it worthwhile in the New Year. Well, today I want you to reflect on attainable goals for 2013. This is the year for realistic goals where the small wins pay off big in the end.
Here are some helpful guidelines to quit that procrastinating:
- Make it public. You are more likely to forget your goal if you make it secret. Want to make it stick, find a friend to make you accountable.
- Smart phones have great apps to also track your progress. Do you want to know what’s in your food this year before purchasing? Try this app called Fooducate. Are your friends telling you that you are tardy for everything? This app Cueup. It’s time to be accountable!
- You are more likely to stay motivated and achieve your goal if there is a reward in the end, however if that reward is too far out there, discouragement can settle in. Remember the line “Babysteps” from the movie, “What about Bob?” starring Bill Murray and Richard Dreyfuss? LOVE IT! Planning on hitting the gym and losing some weight from your last pregnancy….babystep it! Instead of the usual goal to hit a certain weight by a certain amount of time, try a goal of hitting the gym 3x a week for a month. Once that goal has been achieved give yourself a reward…. I say buy a new pair of shoes. Once that goal has been met, amp it up the next month for something new at the gym.
Happy Goal Achieving in 2013!
