It's almost New Year's Eve, and time for the world to make this year's resolutions to stop doing what we shouldn't be doing, or do more of what we should be doing.
Many of these resolutions go unfulfilled, or not attempted at all. One of the reasons for this is because simply saying it's going to happen is only part of the process of making it happen.
Creating a goal is great, but to actually get there, you need to create a plan. The space between thought and fruition is action. If you really want to make 2010 the year you get into your best condition, you're going to have to skip the resolution, and make a plan.
Here's how you're going to do it.
Remember the SMART goal system? When setting a goal, think about this. Is it Specific? Is it Measurable? Is it Attainable? Is it Realistic? Is it Timely? Answer these questions and you'll have a refined goal that you can get started on immediately. This simple system is very powerful, and if used regularly, will produce results over and over again.
