The Importance of Setting Medium-Term Goals

A Reward System to Reach Your Dreams!

98 Comments



  • I know goals are so important, and I set them often. Unfortunately I don't go back and visit them often enough. I found this yesterday and think it is so terrific! It's like the SparkPeople idea of the collage, but it's a "vision Board" online that you can set up your goals and use it as a screensaver (really beautiful) or print it out to put around the house, or email. I thought the collage idea here was really good and a lot of fun, this just takes it a little further. It is $29 a year (which is about 8 cents a day), but they have a 14 day free trial, so you can test drive it first. I love it and I see my goals in front of me several times a day. Have fun! You can make it all about weightloss or other goals too.

  • What a great idea! "if you achieve 90% of your weekly goals, take yourself out to dinner." Think I shall put it into practice as a reward along with the short term goals. Now, to come up with ideas on how to set goals ... It is nutrition I am going after. - 7/26/2008 9:04:02 AM

  • I've failed at this weight loss so many times. But the last three weeks, I've managed to stay on track with both my nutrition AND my fitness by doing just what this article recommends. My main goal for the present is to focus on just today. This keeps me from dwelling on how much further I have to go and whether or not I'll do this well tomorrow. Within the daily focus, I have incorporated more strength training and broken my workouts into two sessions. It's feeling more like a journey than a drudgery, and I'm rewarded by my consistency, a sense of accomplishment, and the changes in my body. - 2/8/2008 11:08:30 AM

  • This was encouraging and helped me not to give up. - 2/8/2008 9:37:46 AM
  • I work best with several layers of goals. For example, I have a few weekly goals like drinking my water or getting to the gym. I also let myself download one MP3 for every 5 pounds. I'm thinking of a good way to celebrate the next level which is a 50 pound loss. It has to be something that I can appreciate as I continue on down the scales. All these layers of goals keep me motivated, because I get to celebrate small successes as well as large ones. - 2/8/2008 7:42:12 AM
