Happy December! The year is almost over, but that doesn’t mean it is time to take a break from working toward your goals. Whether you have financial goals, career goals, personal development goals, or health and fitness goals, take some time this month to work toward and even achieve some of your goals.
I have created the exercise below to help you develop an action plan that will move you closer to your reaching your goal. Remember, not every goal has to be a big, dramatic outcome goal. For example, if your health goal is to ultimately lose 15 pounds, you probably won’t be able to do it in a month (at least not in a healthy sustainable way). However, you can set a few process goals such as doing 20 minutes of exercise 3-4x per week and eating 5-7 servings of vegetables daily. Practicing the process goals will get you moving on the path to your ultimate outcome of losing 15 pounds.
Let’s expand this example to this month’s exercise:
3 things I will accomplish this month:
- Lose 3 pounds
- Stick to my holiday buying budget
- Read 1 personal development book
2 actions I can take:
- Lose 3 pounds
- Exercise 20-30 minutes 3-4x per week
- Eat 6+ servings of vegetables daily
- Stick to holiday budget
- Buy gifts using only cash not credit
- Create a gift buying list and purchase only what is on the list
- Read 1 book
- Decide what book to read
- Read 15-20 minutes daily and take notes
1 thing I can do today:
- Eat my veggies
- Write my gift buying list
- Get up 15 minutes early and read
If you follow this 3-2-1 plan, I guarantee you will be on your way to achieving not only your monthly goals but your ultimate outcome goals as well.
