Let’s say, you need to lose weight. How do you go about it? Will you just go with the flow? Will you just exercise without any goal in mind? Will you just eat without any goal in mind?
For you to lose weight, you need to set goals. When you exercise, you need to make it clear how many reps you are looking to achieve within a week. When you eat, you need to make it clear how much food you are looking to intake within a day. And oh, let’s not forget the end goal for each of these: shedding at least 5 pounds within a week or losing at least half a pound within a day.
This goes the same in other aspects of your life.
What kind of grades are you looking to achieve within a year in school? What kind of milestones are you looking to reach within two years at work? What kind of chores are you looking to finish within two hours at home?
Because without setting a goal for everything you do in life, you will be left with nothing but ideas. These ideas will only cause you to become more complacent with your actions, ultimately forgetting about the reasons why you’re doing it. These ideas will also only cause you to become more cautious with your words, ultimately forgetting about the reasons who you’re doing it for.
Indeed, setting goals is important – not just for when you’re losing weight, but also in other aspects of your life.
Set your goals now – not just for you to lose weight and to finally wear those slim jeans and Vans of yours, but also to be who you’re meant to be in other aspects of your life.
