In order to achieve specific goals, you must have a plan. A plan that is specifically dedicated to achieving your goal. There is no shortage of diet strategies, workout plans, and accompanying supplements out there. It can be very confusing trying to find the best plan for you.
Most plans out there are generic. They give you very basic strategies that are helpful in general but not necessarily what you need to be successful towards your goal.
The plan doesn’t need to be complicated. Often times, the more complicated it is the less benefit you get from it. A good program has the following components.
It makes little difference if you have the “perfect” plan if you are unable to stick with it, for whatever reason. Adherence is first and foremost when developing a strategy. This component takes a lot into consideration such as work schedule, type of work, daily habits, etc.
When you’re wanting to make a permanent change, it must be something that can fit in with little disturbance to your way of life. If you think you can make a complete change over various aspects at once, you severely over-estimate your capability.
You see, humans are creatures of habit. We tend to do things that we’re used to doing. If you’re wanting to make a change, you must only change one thing at a time. Changing multiple things at once will often cause a feeling of overwhelm and more often than not cause you to revert back to old habits.
It must be something that you can stick to! Remember, in the health and fitness world, slow and steady when the race. Quick fixes are not realistic. It takes time, dedication, and perseverance to achieve your goals.
Having daily goals make the larger, long-term goals easier to obtain. They give you a small sense of accomplishment each and every day. This will allow you to see and feel yourself progressing. If you don’t have smaller check points, the long-term goal will feel too far away. Put emphasis on today, knowing that if you don’t do what needs to get done today, you’ll never get to your end goal.
“What gets measured gets managed.”
– Peter Drucker
If you don’t keep track of what you are doing, you will not be able to look back and see what worked and what didn’t. You don’t have to be a tracking maniac. Tracking the basics such as macros and workouts will go a long way.
