“Willpower by itself is not enough. If we want to achieve lasting change, we must have an effective strategy.” – Tony Robbins
When you have the right strategy, nothing is out of your reach–it will help you lose the pounds for good, create the relationship of your dreams or take your career to the next level.
Successful people understand the importance of an effective strategy – they regularly evaluate and re-evaluate their own strategies to ensure they produce consistent results. When determining how to make a strategy, you must take a detailed look at the system in place and ask yourself the following three questions:
Let’s take the goal of losing weight for example. What are you currently doing to get to your goal weight? Maybe you plan to go to the gym four times a week, but something always gets in the way. Your healthy eating plan is constantly getting derailed by your co-workers asking you to go out to eat lunch with them at unhealthy restaurants.
Write down everything you plan to do and then what you are actually doing in regards to your goal. This is the first step toward creating the right strategy for goal achievement.
Now take an honest look at what you’re doing and see if it’s getting you any closer to your goals. Are you hoping to lose a pound a week but are currently not? Do you lose a pound a week when you consistently go to the gym four times a week and avoid lunches out? If what you’re doing on a regular basis is not getting you closer to your goals, you need to change what you’re doing and devise a strategy that will be effective.
If you know that what you’re currently doing isn’t getting you where you want to be, it’s time to make changes. In the above scenario, what isn’t working is that you are not going to the gym like you planned and your co-workers’ invitations are getting you off track. These are the two areas that need to be changed in order to achieve your goal of losing a pound a week.
Once you understand what needs to change, you can begin to determine the steps that will take you from where you are to where you want to be. This will help you devise a strategy that is resistant to distractions while also strengthening your time management goals via holding yourself accountable toward making the time for things that will keep you on track, like meal prepping or using your lunchtime and breaks for physical activity.
