Goal Setting

source :
As the new year approaches, more and more people are making new years resolutions.

Here's a quick guide to setting goals.

In short, you need to be SMART.  Easy right?

S - Specific
Target your behaviour. 
I want to lose weight vs. I want to lose 5lbs by April 12th, 2014.

M - Measurable
Can you measure your progress?  Taking the example from before, my measurement is weight.  

A - Adjustable
Can we change things around?  It is important to be able to update your goals.  This also really helps in terms of lapses. Sometimes it is important to take a pause on your goals.

R - Realistic
Make sure it is challenging though. No point of a goal if you can do it randomly. 

T - Time based
Start and end dates.

Goal Setting
- set your goals and make sure you update them
- try to develop strategies to achieve your goals
- depending on what they are make sure you track your progress.

Stay posted for our new year resolutions!

Thoughtfully yours,
