We’ve had our goal wall up for awhile now at bootcamp. Goals have been made. Some have been accomplished. Some not.

It is my mission that EVERY GOAL written on that board be achieved.

So what defines a goal?

Some say a goal is a dream with a deadline.

Conversely, a dream is a goal without a deadline.

So how does this pertain to you?

When setting a goal, you need to set a timeframe, this will make you much more likely to achieve it, as a goal with a deadline requires planning, it requires consistency, it requires a motivation driven by your why. It’s not a wish… Like I want to get toned, lose 10lbs, and be fitter. No, it’s I want to lose 10lbs in 2 months with a deadline of November 2nd.

That is a real goal, that is a SMART goal.

You may have heard of SMART goals, where in order for a goal to be more likely to be achieved it should be:
Specific
Measurable
Attainable
Realistic
Timeframe dependent

Please take some time to reflect on these questions and your goal.

In order to greater facilitate the change you want and to increase your support and likelihood of success with your health and fitness goals, we will be changing the structure of the goal wall.

Moving forward, all goals need to have deadlines. All goals need to be measurable. All goals need to be realistic. If you have a goal of 5 pullups and are still working on 1, set a goal of 1 pullup first, if you have a goal of losing 50lbs in 6 months, set a goal of losing 10lbs in 1. Achieve it. Then set another small goal. The big goals are only achieved by the compounding of the small goals. Consistent effort yields small victories.

Small specific attainable goals are the stepping stones to large and amazing transformations

Please set all future goals in this matter:

Name   Goal     Deadline

Now is the time to attach a deadline to that dream so that it becomes reality.

Thanks,
Josh
