Step 6: Set a Time Frame
by Dr. Jacob Mathew,
For the past 3 weeks we were discussing the mechanism of setting goals.
After discussing the process of setting up goals, we had been discussing specific guidelines we need to follow in setting up your goals. They are:
Step 4 Be realistic in your goals.
Step 5 Make the goals personal.
I hope that most of you have tried to set a goal for yourself. We called it a rough draft, because we still have 2 more guidelines to fine-tune our goals. Today we will cover the third step. Next week we will complete the process.
Step 6: Set a Time Frame for your goals
An open goal just does not work. It has to have a completion date to get you motivated. Do some research before putting a date on an arbitrary goal. Ask others about how long it took for them to reach weight loss targets. Learn what is a realistic weight loss target. Is losing 15 pounds a week attainable? Perhaps not!! How much sacrifice are you willing to make?
Your goals and tactics to attain them also include several tasks. These could be starting swimming, go for jogging, start yoga or Tai Chi etc. etc. Some of them may require you to do some pre-action like joining a health club; signing up for a class to learn yoga, etc. These should be listed in your goal sheet. Research and select training programs and find one that matches your goals, your fitness level, and the time you have available to train. Now write down a date for starting and completing the task next to it.
