7 Things You Can Do to Make Life Changes – Define the change

Once you have looked at the obstacles to change and the personality preferences that influence your progress to change, identify what you wish to change by using a goal-setting process called S.M.A.R.T.   Make the goal specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and timed.  For example if I want to reduce my weight by 10 pounds, I would write my goal down using 


S.M.A.R.T. in the following way

SPECIFIC–lose weight.

MEASURABLE – 10 pounds.

ACHIEVABLE – achievable is defined on timelines or on the difficulty of the goal – be sure the goal is something that challenges you but achievable, otherwise, you will not be able to sustain your interest in the goal.

RELEVANT – be sure the goal has some relevance to your life and that you have a deep enough interest in pursuing it otherwise, you will not have the commitment necessary to see it through.

TIMED – always put some time line on your goal setting target.  The time line could be when you start, when you stop, or some bench mark along the way that you can determine how you’re doing and make adjustments you may wish to make along the way.
