Secrets of Success

Setting Mini Goals



Although I sometimes feel like I'm invincible, I know I have to temper myself. If I decide I want to try a new exercise, it's always better to set incremental goals to achieving the ultimate time or number of reps to get the greatest benefit of the exercise. If I overdo it the 1st time around, I'll be too sore and tend to not want to do the exercise again. So I set mini goals--I do 10 reps today and increase them by two or three every day (daily mini goal) until I reach my goal of, say 50.
