Goals Under Control

takeactionSome common New Year’s goals:

  • Lose 20 pounds
  • Fit in size 2 jeans
  • Lose 3 inches off my waistline

These are results, and often times (usually) we don’t have control over outcomes.

We do have control over our actions though, and action goals are Goals Under Control.

You can control if you exercise 3 or 4 times a week: “My goal is to train Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at least 40 weeks this year”

You can control how much sugar goes into your coffee: “My goal is to gradually decrease my sugar by 1/2 teaspoon a week until I don’t use any”

You can control how late you stay up watching TV before going to bed: “I am going to shut off the TV by 10 and DVR anything after that”

Taking action on those goals will help us get closer to losing that 20 pounds, and even better than that, becoming the kind of person who keeps those 20 pounds off.

Pretty cool, huh? 🙂
