You want stuff. Here’s how to get it.
Dynamic Goal Setting
- Big Picture
- Daily Tasks
- Big Picture: What is it overall that you want? Ex. 1. To be strong.
- Goals: This is an exact measurement of how you’ll measure your Big Picture. This is Dynamic Goal Setting so your Big Picture could involve several Goals. Ex. 2. To do 50 pushups. To run a 9 minute mile. To lose 15 lbs.
- Daily Tasks: This is what you’re going to do today or list of to-do tasks to get to your Goal(s) thus achieving your Big Picture. Our Big Picture takes shape here in tree form. Ex. 3. Do 10 pushups 3x per week. sub Buy a yoga mat. 3. 30 minute walk 2x per week. sub Plan route Buy new laces for running shoes. 3. Eat a low carb diet. sub Research food to eat and avoid. Plan meals. Go to grocery store Tuesday.
Here’s how it’d look written out:
- To be strong.
- Be able to do 50 pushups. To run a 9 minute mile. To lose 15 lbs.
- Do 10 pushups 3x per week.
- Buy a yoga mat.
- 30 minute walk 2x per week.
- Plan route
- Buy new laces for running shoes
- Eat a low carb diet.
- Research food to eat and avoid.
- Plan meals.
- Go to grocery store Tuesday.
Author’s Note: Ideally I’d label 4 and 5 above as more 3’s but I can’t format it like that, sorry. See what layout works best for you.
Maybe you can see how the Big Picture will be redefined over time. This prevents you from painting yourself into boxes of your past selves. Dynamic Goal Setting helps you take actionable steps towards what were initially vague goals but get dynamically morphed into achievable goals. Ex. I AM strong!
Next time: It’ll probably be a few days. I’m going to work on something more substantial. Once again SS’s identity takes a swing to the weird.
