On goal setting

Having overarching goals is a good idea and helps drive you. It can also be too easy to lose sight of, or start explaining away as being too hard, or too extreme.  That doesn’t mean don’t set them, but it means don’t set them alone.

By ‘not alone’, I mean setting smaller goals that are closer to your current situation and can be achieved in the near term.  For example, if you have a goal of losing at least 50 lbs over the next year, get more granular and near-term, too.  Add something like, “By losing 5 lbs per month.”

In this way, you keep moving ahead. You keep getting reinforcement. You keep succeeding.
