2. Goals Should be MEASURABLE
Each of your goals should be broken down into specific, measurable outcomes. You need to write down exactly what you will need to do to achieve your goals and what you will see and feel once you have achieved them. What concrete evidence will you need to be able to proclaim victory?
You need to be able to measure your progress to know whether you’re on track or need to make adjustments. The goal of getting in shape is too vague to measure. Losing 25-pounds is a measurable goal. However, if you want to lose 25-pounds in 2-days it’s neither realistic nor achievable.
