SMART

Goals – Keeping Focused and On Track

Posted on

Having set your goals is one thing but keeping focused and on track is quite another thing altogether.  If you are not working with a coach or extremely motivated to achieve your goal on time it is easy to lets things slip.

Often when we set goals we are inspired and motivate, keen to achieve whatever it is we want.  However it is easy to sit back and expect things to happen, before you know it often time has flown by and little progress has been made.  It’s not that we don’t want the goal .. just that it is not as motivating when having set a goal then you have to actually take action to make it happen

Most goals require some form of physical engagement, whether it be to write a book, lose weight, run a marathon, change jobs.  It takes a lot of thinking and effort to turn your dream goal into a reality and it is so easy to start making progress then become complacent or become side tracked only to find that time has slipped by and your not making the progress you had planned or have lapsed with the progress you have made.

How best to stay focused and on track:

  1. Write your goals down, make sure they are SMART goals and have a deadline.
  2. Next chunk down you goal into smaller, achievable steps – working on one at a time makes it less scary if it is a big goal.
  3. Chart your progress – it’s motivating to see what you are achieving as you go.
  4. Work with a Coach – or if that is not possible join a Coaching Group.  Meet with other people who have goals they are working on will help you feel motivated as you help and support each other.
