Have you ever gotten into fitness, but weren’t sure where to start or what you wanted to get out of it?
Or perhaps you’ve set goals, but keep failing to achieve them?
More than anything, we tend to fail because we don’t take the time to understand what it is that we are trying to achieve. And because of that, we can’t set smart goals.
Let’s fix that. No matter what your current situation is and what road lay ahead, you need to make clear goals if you ever hope to get somewhere.
But, How Do We Create These Clear Goals?
“I want to lose weight.”
Can you tell me what’s wrong with this statement? After all, it’s healthy and admirable to do so.
The problem is, this goal is rather vague. You don’t have an endpoint, it’s not time-bound, it’s not very actionable, it’s not measurable, and it’s far from specific. Let’s make it better.
“I want to lose 15 pounds in the next 12 weeks.”
This goal is similar enough, but different in very crucial ways:
First, it’s specific - you know exactly what you want to achieve. Second, it’s measurable. If you break it down, it comes to a bit more than a pound of weight loss per week.
Third, it’s realistic. I’m all for shooting for the stars, but your goals should be achievable. If you set goals that are too large, you risk getting disappointed and giving up soon after.
Fourth, it’s time-bound. You have a starting point (ideally, today), and an endpoint - 12 weeks from now.
So What Makes This Goal Better?
It sounds simple enough (and it is), but making specific goals with clear timelines makes it much more likely for you to follow. The progress you make gives you instant feedback that you’re moving in the right direction. This creates a cycle of achievement-motivation where you become more and more enthusiastic as you progress toward your objectives.
Plus, once you’ve set clear goals, it’s much easier to create a plan.
