It’s been a busy start to the week! We kicked off our 2018 New Year REVolution Program on Monday, and conducted our Success Goal Setting and Planning session last January 16th.
One of the things we discussed that night were different types of goals, and how failure to use both types together is a key reason people struggle with New Years Resolutions. Here’s a quick summary.
There are two primary types of goals (Outcome and Process). Both are critical to success. Outcome goals define the end point you want to reach. Process goals highlight the tasks that must be completed along the path towards the desired outcome.
Without an end point (outcome), your efforts will be pointless. Without process goals, the path will be unclear and the outcome much more difficult to accomplish. We must use both types of goals strategically, while also setting short, medium, and long term goals. Of course, they must also be SMART (Specific, Measureable, Action-based, Realistic, Time-based).
This may seem like a lot, but in reality it’s pretty simple to do and implement. Unfortunately, like many aspects of life, people often make things more complicated than they actually are.
So my task for you this week is to carve out an hour of your time to sit down and write down your top goal. Set an outcome goal, and then map out some key process goals to help you accomplish your outcome. If you’ve already done this, expand the concept to a goal in another area of your life.

Yours in Health and Happiness!
