Be realistic – what works for someone else might not necessarily be the best approach for your personal situation
One step at a time. Focus on one goal at a time. Overwhelming yourself with a heap of goals at once waters down your focus and effort
Publicize your goals to friends and family – for accountability
Aim for progress, not perfection. Embrace that the line from where you are now to where you want to be is unlikely to be linear. It will be a bit squiggly, and that’s OK. As long as you are closer to the goal than you were yesterday, last week, last month – you’re getting there. Feeling guilty is one of the main reasons people give up on their goals – especially women.
