I remember I used to be so frustrated when I would go to the gym in the beginning of the year, as the gym would be PACKED! All of the machines would be full and parking was always a nightmare. I also remember feeling relieved when February and March rolled around because the crowds started to become less and less. When I stopped to really think about this, I found my perspective started to change. Sure, the crowds and packed gym could be frustrating but at least people were moving their bodies, working towards a healthier lifestyle, and actually trying to make a positive change for themselves! I then began to feel disappointed when I saw the crowds diminish because I realized people were giving up on their goals for themselves. They were no longer putting in the same amount of effort as they were in the beginning of the year. Somewhere along the way, something changed and not for the better.

Why is it that people get so excited and so motivated in the beginning of the year, just to call it quits so soon after? Because setting goals is really hard. In theory it seems easy, right? I want to do _____, so I am going to do _______. For example, I want to run a marathon, so I am going to run a marathon. Great! Having the idea is part of the equation, but what happens after that initial goal is set? You have to actually implement the goal and the actual implementation of the goal is where people tend to get stuck. So running a marathon doesn’t mean just running a marathon. It means an extensive training routine, dietary adjustments, time commitments, financial commitments, etc. Catch my drift?

So how do you set attainable goals that you’ll actually stick with?
