5 Reasons I set goals

by Amy  - December 21, 2015

I’m a goal setter. I admit it. I’m actually very proud of it.

Amy's Notes

In fact over the last 20 years without really meaning to I’ve spent a lot of time and money learning about setting goals. How to do it best, when it works and when it doesn’t.

Florida in the winter is a little like being inside the old movie "the birds" they are everywhere. Here is just one on a wire over the street.

Here are five reasons why I personally set goals.

  1. I cannot achieve a goal I don’t set.  This was a lottery slogan when I was young “gotta be in it to win it.”
  2. Setting goals and making a plan to hit them helps me to feel more productive.
  3. Setting goals and working toward those goals gives me a feeling of control over my days and my life.
  4. Setting goals and working toward those goals gives me a feeling of living with intention. Put in the form of a platitude Run your life or it will run you.
  5. When I have a well planned set of goals I find that I am happier.

    This is my husband's iced coffee cup that he apparently cannot clean up himself. One non-training goal of mine this year is to clearly communicate to my family that this kind of thing annoys the crap out of me.

  • I would love to try that (err, perhaps I shulod figure out how far 2.4 miles is in metres first ) and would join you for sure if it wasn’t for the weather in the North of the UK at the moment I shulod be able to get in the runs and swims, but my road back has NO tyre grip at all so if there’s even the slightest hint of frost I’d have trouble with the biking aspect. I’ll need to have a look at the forecast!Good luck at your 5K A proper Iron Man would be a Bucket List goal of mine but I don’t really see it happenning I have enough trouble just with marathons!xxx
