Fitness Motivation – Set One Goal Today

You can’t move forward unless you know what direction you are going in. Setting a goal is like looking at a compass, it gives you direction.

Why Should We Set Goals?

Goals are like statements in which we identify a plan and try and accomplish it in given period. Setting a realistic goal helps us provide direction and vision, it helps to avoid chaos and confusion and gives us something to look forward to, which then enables our motivation.

A Simple Goal Setting Formula

There is a very simple formula that you can use to help you set your goals. Its called the S.C.O.R.E. formula and this is how it works:

S.C.O.R.E

S = Specific: Be specific about your goal, for example:

  • What?
  • When?
  • How?
  • Time frame

C = Categories: Identify an area of your life for which you want to set a goal:

  • Fitness
  • Weight loss
  • Family
  • Career
  • Relationships

O = Outcome: Think about what outcome you expect (Again be realistic)

  • Desired outcome
  • How will i look when its completed

R = Review: In life there will be unexpected events etc, therefore you may need to make time to revise and review your goals.

  • Decide how often to review or revise your goals; weekly, monthly, yearly
  • Add and / or delete goals if necessary
  • Always review your goals for your own motivation!

E = Engage: Start small and move with baby steps.

  • Keep your goals short and don’t try and achieve many goals at once.
  • Pick a goal, set it and move towards it.

Try and set one goal for yourself today.
