The world is pretty uncontrollable. We are all very well aware of that by now!
We can’t control the outcome.
But we can control the behaviors that lead to the outcome we want.
Outcomes are WHAT you want. But outcomes don't tell you what to do.
Behaviors are HOW you'll get there. Behavior goals give you an action plan.
If you want to make big changes, you have to take small, consistent daily actions.
If we’re talking about a health based goal, say fitness or weight loss, we usually have those outcome goals already brewing in our minds.
…and more often than not, that’s where they stay.
We often think we’ll have to completely overhaul our lives to reach those outcome goals, so what usually happens?
We get stuck
So instead of setting “outcome goals”, set “behavior goals”.
I’ve called behavior goals my 5 to Thrive or High Yielding Tasks but essentially all of the behavior goals are a commitment to do a specific set of actions or tasks that lead to the outcome you want.
Again: You can’t control the outcome.
But you can control the behaviors that, when done consistently, will move you in the right direction.
Focus on the process, not the outcome.
If you’d like to work on your 5 to Thrive so that you can recommit to yourself fully, send me a message, I’d love to help!
