that you have set for yourself play a critical role in your success, so make

should set goals in all areas of our lives but today we are asking you to set
some that are 100% related to your health and wellbeing.

How to complete today’s task:
business there is the widely accepted method for goal setting called SMART and
it is quite widely adopted. It is a great place to start.
- Specific – Your
goals need to be detailed and clearly described.
- Measurable – Ask
yourself what is your starting point? What will indicate progress? What is a
- Achievable – Your
goals need to be realistic and achievable, but still just challenging enough
that you will need to work hard for them.
- Relevant – Your
goals need to align with your overall vision of the progress you wish to make
and the lifestyle you wish to live.
- Time bound – Your
goals should have clear deadlines.
- “Lose weight” is not a
- “Lose 1 kg every week over
an 8 week period” is a SMART goal.
- “Get fit” is not a SMART
- “Run 5km in less than 30
minutes by week 4” is a SMART goal.
is a great start. Do you want to take things to the next level? Then let’s talk
about Outcome Goals VS Behaviour Goals:
difference between outcome goals and behaviour goals is critical in turning
your dreams into actions.
goal is the end result you hope to accomplish.

something is still missing… We need to solve the problem that even with such
goals we often don’t take enough action.
without a plan is just a dream – so this is where your behaviour and habits
come into play now.
behaviour goal is the steps you need to take to achieve that outcome.
- For example, a behaviour
goal is that you will need to go to gym 3 times a week in order to lose those
10 kilograms by the 1st of July.
goals actually usually come as a set of goals. Such as going to gym 3 times a
week, preparing a healthy lunch to take to work the night before, and waking up
20 minutes earlier to cook a healthy breakfast rather than munching down a
just-about-pure-chocolate granola bar.
As you can
see, now the steps to losing weight are suddenly much more actionable.
forward to hearing about your goals!
