Commitment tips to help you get s**t done
Achieving your goals means committing to the processes needed to get there. While it's all well and good to have goals, you need to think about how you're actually going to achieve them, and how you can make those behaviours a part of your everyday life.
The best way to start doing this is through your language. Making new habits and committing to something is all about your mindset and how you talk to yourself.
Here are some tips to help you reframe your language, improve your self-efficacy, and get s**t done.
- Be specific. Instead of saying 'I'll try and get to the gym tomorrow', say 'I am going to the gym tomorrow morning at 7am for a lower body session.'
- Plan ahead. If your goal is to hit your macro targets during the week, then this may take some planning. Instead of hoping that you will hit your targets, set aside some time each Sunday to meal prep for the week ahead.
- Identify wasted time. Look for gaps in your day where your time could be spent more efficiently. You may find 1-2 hours of spare time that you thought you didn't have! Then, utilise this time for a behaviour that will get you closer to your goals.
- Reframe your language. Instead of saying 'I wish I could' or 'I will try', say 'I will', 'I can' or 'I am'. How you speak to yourself makes a BIG difference when it comes to achieving your goals!
