    I'm not so much a goal maker. But I'm very into systems, routines, structure. I find that people who work outside the home have a hard time establishing structure for themselves. In general, it's much easier to have structure forced upon us, by employers, schools, etc. But learning how to structure our lives, is a very important skill. I'm fortunate to be very good at this. For exercise, routines are very important, they take the thought process out of it. I get up every morning and walk 5 miles with my dog. I don't even think about it anymore, I just do it. - 10/7/2014 9:07:24 AM

  • Great article.The trackers help me track some goals. I am going to make a list of other goals and check them off . I always like to see things that I had accomplished. Thanks - 10/5/2012 7:22:38 AM

    Great article. I found this very helpful not only as we begin a new year, but something vital that I need to incorporate daily. - 12/23/2011 5:05:37 PM
  • This is one of my major downfalls! When I decide to diet, I hit the ground running and make it my main focus. I am going to try to take these important babysteps before skipping over them. - 12/23/2011 12:40:01 AM
  • Love the idea to keep goals written down someplace you see first thing in the morning. - 11/12/2011 1:11:10 PM
  • Excellent article, very motivational for me. - 10/5/2011 3:19:04 PM
  • i'm just getting back on track after 6 months of not exercising (and a 20lb weight re-gain)

    Starting small is what has let me get re-started - 10/18/2010 7:08:34 AM

    i like how he acknowledges that one size or one goal doesn't fit all. there are many ways to the top and we all have to find the right path for ourselves. problem with me though is that if i have to deal with food and weight, that's all i can deal with and everything else (school, work, family) goes down the drain... and vice versa. must learn how to balance everything in my life - 9/21/2010 10:11:11 PM
  • Good article. Setting specific goals works well for me for eating and exercising. But I'm trying to extend goal setting to other areas of my life, and it's hard. I've been experimenting with setting vague goals, like "spend 10 minutes today doing some cleaning task I hate/usually put off". That's been working better than a specific "clean the windows" type goal. - 8/24/2010 6:28:23 PM

    Lately I find it easier to set specific goals- each day.I find them easier to achieve that way. One day at a time! - 4/7/2010 1:30:07 AM
  • I have lost 62 lbs since July 09, I started setting a daily walking goal and that was when the real difference in my journey began. Goals are what keeps me grounded.

  • This is helpful. I worry that I am not doing things 'right'. This article reminds me it is more important to do things in a way that works for me, than to worry about doing what others are doing. Thanks! - 2/3/2010 6:59:45 PM
  • Great! First I set the number and target date, broke it down to monthly mini-goals, found the support group and created a VisionBoard. Finally I made a pact with myself that if there were any wobbles along the way I would not get in my own way but treat myself the way I would treat my best friend. Mostly this seems to be working for me and when I don't feel strong I call my Energy Buddy for help - 11/8/2009 4:26:47 AM
  • Great article. I'm going to share this one with my students in September! - 8/13/2009 4:41:20 PM
