Heavy Metal Money: The Podcast - "Looking back on 2020 & Goals for 2021 with April Durow"
Heavy Metal Money: The Podcast - "Looking back on 2020 & Goals for 2021 with April Durow" Episode 002 - Looking back on 2020 & Goals for 2021 My good friend April joins me for this look back on 2020. What goals were met, and what fell short with area for improvement. We look at what existing and new goals we are setting for 2021, and ways that we can stay accountable to meet them. We review keys to making and achieving goals by setting S.M.A.R.T. criteria. S - Specific. Make goals less vague. Rather than "I'm going to lose weight." try "I'm going to lose five pounds. M - Measurable. With something we can measure we can track progress. By stating 5lbs as our goal we can measure how much we've lost and how much we have left to lose. A - Attainable. By keeping the goal something that is realistic and attainable we have something we can actually reachable. Rather than arbitrarily stating I'm going to loose 30lbs would cause possible health issues, make it very difficult or even impossible to reach based on my height, weight and BMI. R - Relavant. Goals need to make sense to me, and be relevant to me and my life. I'd like to lose some of the weight brought on by the pandemic, and being at home snacking all the time. I'd like my Medium-Sized shirts to fit more comfortably. This is totally relevant to me. It makes sense. T - Time Sensitive.  If we can have specific, and measurable goals, we need a way to keep motivated, and review progress. By keeping a goal time-bound, we don't keep extending the goal and become a contestant Someday Isle. Ya know, I'll get that someday? "Someday I'll lose the weight." Get voted off the Island, and set a timeframe for the goal, and perhaps periodic milestones along they way. This will keep you on track, motivated, and more likely to make progress in reaching your goals. Resources Mentioned in this Episode: Wishing you a Heavy New Year!
