Are you tired of missing goals? here's one simple tip

I've been a goal oriented individual my whole life. I've seen my share of failures and success stories. One common pattern I notice with the failures is the lack of a detailed plain.
For example, I knew a lady who said she was going to lose 30 pounds for her new years resolution. She had signed up for numerous cycling classes, drank a nasty wheatgrass shake every morning and by the second week of the new year, she was utterly burned out and ready to quit. 
A well defined plan would have helped her achieve this goal. This dramatic lifestyle change is not natural for a person new to all this healthy stuff. You have to ease yourself into behavior change. Bonus: if you know of someone who has achieved what your hoping to achieve have them review your plan. And ask them to be mentor. A since of accountability can help motivate you.
Lastly, be sure to reward yourself for all your hard work. If you've been good for the whole week, treat yourself on Saturday.  Nothing better helps you refocus like a good day off.
