Goal Board Reviewing
Thursday, February 20, 2014
On my Start page I have set up my goals under the section Goal Board Check-In. Every morning as part of my routine I click the button that "I Reviewed My Goal Board". The thing is….most days I don’t review it. I click the button so I can get my points and go on my merry way. HAD I been reviewing it I would have noticed that instead of putting “I will get InTENTIONAL cardio 4 days a week” I put I InterNATIONAL cardio.
Say what? What is even international cardio? Running from country to country? LOL
Were my goals on my Goal Board empty goals? Were they not even applicable to what I am doing, to what my actual goal is? I don't think SP’s reason for putting that goal board on our Start page was so everyone could just get some points in (well maybe…I did). I needed to rethink why I was putting what I was putting there and then actually REVIEW it every morning. Otherwise I would be at a goal board avoidance meeting standing up and saying… “My name is Jeannie and I am a clicker. I click to just get the SP points.”
We have goals, all of us, but we need the steps to achieve those goals. For the majority of us they do not just happen. We have to work for them. We have to make plans and set up small steps to be successful. We need to think about what we need to do to get to that goal. Not all of us can follow the same path. We have to do things our way. SP makes it easier for us by having that Goal Board right there for us.
I reviewed my goals this morning and I think I have some good ones there. I have long range goals and some “you should be doing this every day” type goals. ALL attainable. Some I even do every day. I just have to keep at them and keep plugging away every day. But to help me out I need to LOOK at these goals and steps EVERY day so I do not lose sight of what I want…to lose weight and lead a healthy lifestyle. No more mindless clicking!!!
