How to achieve your goal by focusing on habits.

 

Setting goals are an important part of making progress in any aspect of your life, whether it be getting in shape, learning how to cook, or becoming fluent in a new language.

Habits create results.  Answer yourself this questions:  Are your habits helping you TOWARDS your goal or AWAY from your goal?

  1. Habits are a focus on consistency, not compliance:

Compliance is following the rules which ultimately always leads to breaking the rules, so why not focus on taking something small and easily doable and and do it consistently?

  1. Focus on what you can control today:

The past has already happened and the future is completely unknown.  What habits can you control right now in your life?

  1. Create habits then reward consistency, not progress towards your goal:

Habits can be things like:

  • Doing tasks consistently
  • Doing tasks well
  • Learning and improving something
  • Purposely choosing the right action or a slightly better action when tempted by the wrong action
  • Putting forth your best effort even when the going gets tough
  • Cleaning the slate after mistakes
  • Persisting in the face of set backs
  • Showing up
  1. Lean on your coach for support:

We as coaches are here to help and support you in any way we can.  But we can only help you if you let us.

  • Have you explained your goals and behavior goals to your coach?
  • Have you asked your coach for help in solving problems and working through challenges?
  • Have you let your coach help you stay responsible and accountable to your behavior goals?
