I’m not a weight loss coach, and oh I need one to keep me looking forward and getting to my ideal healthy weight, that’s for sure, but the examples provided here can apply to just about anything else.
Looking to be successful in business? Well, ‘successful in business’ is very general, and definitely not measurable. You need to generate targets within a timeframe that are reasonably stated. It means setting and resetting and resetting and resetting your goals as you make progress. Let’s apply smart goals to my weight loss and see if I can incorporate all five.
BEHOLD A SMART GOAL
My dream weight is 75 kilograms! By the end of this year, I will have lost 25 to 30 kg by losing 1.5 kg or more at the end of each month. I will do this by closely monitoring my calorie intake to 1600 calories a day, and do one hour’s worth of exercise three to five times per week.
So, there’s the plan. it’s specific – weight loss, measurable, 1.5kg per month, 1600 calories, one hour exercise, three times a week – achievable, 1.5kg is a very realistic and obtainable number if weighing in is done at least three times a week and adjustments in diet/exercise are made – relevant, ideal weight has many health benefits that add value to one’s life, and time-bound, with increments of weeks, months, and the end of the year as milestones in place to make sure the pace of the change is working.
No matter what you want achieve as your goal, when you make it SMART, you set yourself up for success!
I can work with you to develop SMART goals so that you can grow your dreams. It takes a collaboration. Are you ready for it? I know I am.
