With the Goals you’re after in front of you…

STEP 1: For each Goal, list all the activities you believe you’d need to do on a weekly basis that would lead to you accomplishing your Goal. These are the MUSTs for you to hit the goal.

  • Some examples:
    • WEIGHT LOSS: # of clean meals eaten

    • READING: # of hours spent reading

STEP 2: KEEP, KILL, COMBINE your list of measureables from Step 1.

STEP 3: Set a goal for each of your activity-based measureables from Step 2.
