Setting Goals: Actually, There is a Wrong Way

If 2015 is going to be the year you get in shape, I applaud you.

And I see failure in your future.

It’s not that I hate you or don’t want  you to succeed. It’s that the goal of “getting in shape” is ill-defined, like an amoeba. The foundation of success is a sharply defined goal. Think less amoeba, more… cheetah.  I know how hard it is to carve out the time and gather the motivation to stay committed to a fitness goal when there are a million and one other things conspiring to thwart your efforts. I’m looking at you, Snooze Button.

I’m guest posting today over at my friend Erin’s blog, The Social Butterfly Mom, on fitness goal setting (and I think you will find the basic principles apply to goal setting in any area of your life). I hope you will join me over there!
