Mid-Week Motivation: Focus Small to Aim Big

One thing that I have found to be very powerful in this fat-blasting-life-changing journey is that the short-term goals can be really powerful; but so many of us (including me) neglect them.

We have a goal and a dream to get to 13st (182lbs), to become a pilot, to getting promoted, to getting married, etc. But sometimes focusing too much on the end goal keeps us from getting to the end goal, does that make sense?

This is where the S and the T in the SMARTER principle come in; be specific and be targeted!

The goal to become a pilot is specific, but targeting yourself to reach the end goal is going to be made up of little small powerful goals that will create your destination.

For example, this year my small goals have been; getting to the next tens, from January I was in the 280’s so getting to the 270’s was the goal, then getting to the 260’s, and so on. And by the end of March running had come into my weekly routine, so small goals with that were formed; walk/jog, jog/run/stop/jog/run/stop, jog/run, RUN/RUN!! 😛 Goals to increase my running pace once I had conditioned myself to not stopping and walking on a run.

All these little goals have brought me success so far this year that I am really happy with;  I have come down from 282lbs (20.2st)  to a current 222lbs (15.12st) and I can run 6 miles without stopping and my 14:57 mi/m pace is now 10:38 mi/m.

All these little power goals should not be neglected as they form and drive us to the end goal, the big dream!

Great reminder! You are correct. The short-term goals and challenges we set for ourselves are very motivating…they just don’t seem aggressive. Good image on the small steps!

Hi Big Clyde, Thanks for commenting, much appreciated :-) Yes I am convinced that small manageable goals are the path that leads to great things!

Take care,
