2013, so a new year is here and that usually means a new start for most. This is the time of year we set new goals or new years resolutions so to speak. Some are successful and some are not. Most people at this time of year have good intentions but lack the motivation or action to achieve their goals. We start strong from the excitement and then it fizzles out quick due to poor planning. We all do it, I know first hand how easy it is to push a task/goal off for tomorrow and tomorrow never comes and before you know it, the new year is here again. So how can we avoid these pitfalls? When you set your new goals, you need to have an action plan. Layout the steps you need to take to reach your goal. Making big leaps may seem good at the time but you could be missing a valuable lesson on one of the steps you skipped. If you are not sure where to start, find someone with the experience and know how on the goal(s) you want to achieve and seek their advice. Being in the health and fitness field, I see it everyday when people make a goal and try to cut corners, they get frustrated and don't achieve their goals. They either go from diet to diet or workout program to workout program and never get the big results they are looking for. Keep your goals simple and manageable, start with short term goals to achieve the long term goal. This will help you stay motivated. Remember anything worthwhile takes work and the payoff is well worth it. Happy New Years and good luck with your goals.
