Achieve Goals

Most of the time people get excited about creating new goals and targets and not follow-through. Within a few weeks the enthusiasm wanes. So, what would allow you to commit to following-through?

A figure often said in research is 80% of people will have dropped the ball within a month. Whether your intentions, goals or targets are personal, or business, here are a few tips to make it easier for you to achieve them:

1. Write Clear Goals/Targets

Write clear and simple goals and targets. Most people complicate them and then they get lost in detail. Example: I walk 10,000 steps everyday. I do a 30 min cross-fit workout everyday. I eat healthy food to nourish my body. Simple clear goals create momentum, energy and a sense of accomplishment when written. They increase your trust and confidence in your ability. Clear goals create ‘commitment’. This is the purpose of simple written clear goals is to maintain commitment.

2. Make It Fun and Interesting 

One the things that most people lose is interest. If you are not interested, you are not engaged. Keep it interesting and see if you can design new ways to keep you engaged. E.g. If it’s walking everyday for 20mins – 30mins…have new music on; go a different way; add stairs/inclines/declines; slow-down or speed-up. You get the picture.

3. Reward Yourself

Remember to reward yourself each week after staying the course. Before you know it, you would have achieved your targets and it will have be much more fun than you expected.

4. Take Action Everyday

As simple as it sounds do it anyway. Even if you don’t feel like it…start gently and gradually get into it. Prime your attitude and body to do something everyday.

5. Follow-Through

This is the difference between getting things done and not. Follow-through and you’ll reap the rewards. How good does it feel when you do something and follow through on it? How does it get better than that?

So have a strong intention and take action and you’re sure to succeed. Go for it and enjoy it!
