S.M.A.R.T .Goals!; Realistically R, for real!

Today’s Tip – S.M.A.R.T .Goals!; Realistically R, for real! –

So today is an “R” type of day! Which I guess means that reality has settled in for the long haul… I’m not a fan of reality as a whole but in this case, I suppose we will make an exception. Today on the S.M.A.R.T. Goal journey we are looking at the letter “R” for Realistic!

Realistic, In order to have a realistic goal it needs to have two things going for it. First, it has to be something that you are actually willing to do. Second It needs to be something you are able to do. There is nothing wrong with it being a bit higher than you are comfortable with, that still makes it realistic. Only you can decide what is realistic for you. Other people are not you, and their goals and achievements should never be the benchmark you use to compare against.

Having a higher goal is usually easier, yes easier than a lower one. Low goals don’t really do much to motivate you. It makes it seem as though you can do it whenever you get to it. Set your goals realistically but also in a way that gives it a sense of urgency. Now you feel under a bit of pressure, pressure is good. Pressure is what turns common coal into diamonds.

So let’s take a look at the goal again we originally used “Join XYZ Gym in Springfield by the 3rd of January and sign up to go three days per week.” That’s reality for you. You may think that getting to the Gym is easy, maybe it is for you. It comes down to who’s benchmark you are going to use. For me getting out to the Gym three days a week would take a whole lot of effort so this would be realistic for me to accomplish. For others like my partner, three days would be business as usual. Adjust the example to fit your needs.

Tomorrow we will do “T” for ticking time bomb… or “Time-bound.” If I can manage to figure it out we will also be adding in a printable worksheet to help you with your goal setting. I haven’t quite worked out how to add it into the various different blogs we use yet. We may just have it link over to our main site. Until tomorrow!!
