Do you plan to achieve big things? Weight loss, learning a new skill, running a certain distance?
Often we make grand plans to achieve something in a year or longer and if we don't achieve that goal we can be discouraged.
Sometimes just looking at a year long goal can be disheartening. Can I really walk 10KM when I haven't walked more that a short walk before?
One of our mentors recently suggest having a 12 week (or 90 day) plan. A 90 day plan is a good start with managing your time and tasks in achieving your goals.
Here's the process in 6 easy steps.
- Start by looking at your big plan. What do you want to achieve? (e.g. walk the Kokoda track) and write this down
- What would you like to achieve in the next 90 days towards that goal?(e.g. Be able to walk 10 Kilometres at a time) and write this down
- What will you achieve weekly by week?(e.g. Week 1 be able to walk 2 kilometres, week 2 walk e able to walk 3 kilometres etc) and write this down
- What will you achieve each day? (e.g. Week 1, day 1 buy hiking shoes, week 1 day 2 walk 1 kilometre) and write this down
- Each day refer to your daily plan and do what the plan says. Some days you will - some days you won't. Life happens.
- Each 90 days look back with curious fascination to see how you have progressed.
90 days is a great period to break down goals to..
