Short-term goals or long-term goals? Which is better?


The answer?




You need both.


Think of short-term goals as the steps on a ladder that lead you to your goal. If you haven’t seen the picture shown, not having short term goals is like trying to climb a ladder with steps that are too high to even get started climbing. This is what happens to a lot of us. We look at the entire journey of how far we must go, get overwhelmed and don’t even start. By setting smaller, shorter-term goals, you can start climbing the ladder and building momentum.


Once you get momentum going, you start building confidence, and you become a force that’s difficult to stop or slow down.


Short term goals can be everything from lifting a certain amount of weight, to achieving a body fat percentage you’ve always wanted to have. These are important to keep you motivated and to provide challenges to keep you engaged with what you’re doing.


Long Term Goals


Here’s the truth about long-term goals. You need to picture your long-term goal as a ladder that you’ll never stop climbing, which means you need to get to a place where you’re ready to commit to climbing this ladder forever. That sounds horrible, right? Who would want to climb a ladder forever? To develop this mindset, you need to figure out why you’re getting on the ladder in the first place.


I’m on my ladder because I want to be the best father, the best husband, and the best coach I can be. I know that by doing the small things every day, I’m climbing one more step on that ladder every day. There is nothing more important to me than getting better in these areas, so I’ll never get off.


Until you figure out why you’re getting on the ladder in the first place, you’ll always find yourself getting on and off the ladder (yo-yo diets, not working out consistently, etc). I can’t recommend enough you take the time to figure this out about yourself. This has changed everything for me, and I know it can for you too.


Don’t wait until 2023 to work on this. Get started now. Start figuring out what your short-term goals are, what your long-term goals are and your reason for never getting off your ladder.
