What is a goal? • A result towards which effort is made for maintenance or improvement. • Have you ever set a goal for yourself? • Why did you set it?
What is Goal Setting • Goal-setting involves establishing Specific, Measurable, Aggressive, Realistic and Time-bound objectives. • Have you ever reached a goal you set?
Types of Goals • Short-term goals – achievable in 2-4 weeks • Long-term goals – achievable in 2 months or more
S.M.A.R.T. Goals • S – Specific • M – Measureable • A – Aggressive • R – Realistic • T – Time-bound
S – Specific • Goals are straight forward • Details focus efforts and clearly define what is to be accomplished • Example: • A general goal would be “increase upper body strength” but a specific goal would say “I want to increase the number of push-ups I can do.” • Can you think of another example?
M – Measureable • Must be able to answer the questions; “how much?”, or “how will I know when it is accomplished?” • Example: • A general goal would be “I want to do more push-ups” but a measureable goal would be “I want to increase the number of push-ups I can do by 4.” • Can you think of another example?
A – Aggressive • Requires effort to achieve beyond what has been achieved before. • If you could complete 10 push-ups would an aggressive goal be to complete 11 push ups? • What would be an aggressive goal to set for push-ups?
R – Realistic • Goal needs to be achievable, reachable and relevant. • If you set a goal to lose 25 pounds in 1 week is that realistic? • What would be a realistic goal for weight loss in a week?
T - Time-bound • Goal should be achievable in a given time period • Example: • “I want to increase the number of push-ups (specific) I can do by 4 (measureable) by the end of the month (time-bound).
