Goal setting – three levels

Goal setting – three levels

Goal setting – three levels By Justin Moran - Just In Time Personal Training Basic exercise goals – we all know that up and down roller-coaster feeling of setting goals with relation to our health, fitness and exercise. Something clicks, January 1 comes along or the sudden realisation that we are no longer fitting into our clothes – whatever it is, it kicks us into some sort of action and gets us into a mindset of change or action. Sadly though, it is short-lived, and we will have a concerted effort for a few weeks or months, but it often resorts back to our past behaviours. Major life goal setting A few months ago now (thanks COVID!), I delivered a workplace health seminar to a well-known real estate company and elaborated on the need for people if they are looking at getting the very best out of themselves to actively take the steps to set some bigger picture and long-term goals. And from that, “reverse engineer” back to the basic goals and steps we need to take to build towards the bigger picture. Steven Covey, writer of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, which sold more than 25 million copies, once made the statement “start with the end in mind”. There is no better way to do this in relation to goal setting with your life, health, work, happiness, family, and relationships to name just a few. So perhaps the best step you could take is taking a step back and crystal-balling where you would ultimately like to be in say five or 10 years’ time and then work backwards to what that would involve for you in relation to achieving this from the very outset and then keep a copy of these long-term and short-term goals with you at all times and then work towards attaining them. The need of a life-coach, mentor, business coach or personal trainer At the highest level, you may require the services of someone other than yourself to help pave the way for you and help work with you to set out the path, journey and destination of your grand scale of being the best you can be. There is no better example of this that the world’s fastest man over 100 and 200 metres – Usain Bolt. I would be very surprised if you didn’t know who he is but like the real estate group that I asked if they had heard of Glen Mills – not one person knew. Who is Glen Mills you ask? He was Usain Bolt’s coach. Now some may ask, why would someone that just runs a straight line need a coach? Well Usain Bolt did, and he credits all of his success to his coach. If you are highly motivated and driven then it may be something that you need to give some serious thought to as I have personally seen much clarity, vision and the ultimate results delivered to those that have elected to go down this path. I have an expanded Blog post on this for those interested: justintimept.com/who-is-usain-bolt-who-is-glen-mills/ For more information, exercise guidance or if you have any questions, feel free to contact me by heading to justintimept.com •
