About a month ago, we announced that we’d be doing some writing over at Embassy Suite’s BusinessBalance.com. And today we’d like to share one of those articles with you! It’s all about goals—how to set them, how to achieve them and how to reward yourself along the way!

I, for one, am HUGE on setting goals. From making a point to log at least seven fruits and veggies a day in my PeerTrainer log to running a half marathon to doing a 3-minute wall-sit (that’s my most recent victory), goals keep me focused and motivated. They also make me feel more accomplished when I reach them, and, let’s be honest, I don’t mind the massages once I do (massages are my usual reward for a goal well met). Check out the article below for tips to setting goals that set you up for success!

    Great article! I love the acronym.

    And a 3 minute wall sit? Wow! I think I know what my challenge is for today! Excuse me while I go and test my strength now…

    Great article! We developed SMART goals for a work project this year, but I hadn't thought of applying it to my health and fitness goals. (DUH!) My new goal: I will develop 3 SMART goals related to health/fitness by 8:00 tonight. How's that?!

    I heard about this a while back and have started making all of my goals all of these things. Anytime I have an open-ended goal, I always fall through on it because I can't last forever.

    Dorie: I think that's an excellent start. 🙂
