Choose Goals Every Week To Make Progress

Posted: August 28, 2016 in Uncategorized

It’s around 5 pm on a Sunday night and I am already starting to plan out my itinerary for the following week.

I try to divide my weeks into small achievable goals.  If I plan too many activities at once, I typically end up procrastinating and getting nothing done.

Experience has taught me that it is better to break my week into small manageable goals, instead of over planning and under delivering.

For example, this is my plan for this upcoming coming week

Monday: Gym at lunch, deposit 2 checks at the bank.

Tuesday: Gym at lunch, either cardio after work or visit a client

Wednesday: Gym at lunch, pick up rental car in Newark for upcoming vacation

Thursday: Pick up birthday gift for my wife.

Friday: Gym at lunch. Pack clothes. Drive to upstate New York

I also use this system of small goals inside the gym.

For example, my goal tomorrow is to bench press 225 for 10 reps.  That is it.

On Tuesday, I will work out my legs and my goal is 4 plates on each side for leg press.  I take it a day at a time, one workout at a time.

Each individual day I choose a new goal and after several weeks I expect to make a ton of progress.

Procrastination is a progress killer.  Whether it is in the gym, at work, or in business. If you aren’t willing to push yourself and tackle goals, you will never be able to improve.
