Crush Your Goals With a 90 Day Sprint
Have you ever heard of a 90 day sprint? It is a method of goalsetting when you choose three different areas of your life and you focus on getting massive results in those three areas. You determine your baseline and what the threshold is, define your criteria for success, and then you make a detailed plan to see results. The last thing to do is take massive action to achieve these results. Success leaves clues. Successful people set goals and then they take immediate action.
Pick only three areas at a time for your 90 day sprint. Too many things to focus on causes you to completely lose focus. Write your three areas down.
Where are you now? Determine your baseline, where are you currently in these three areas? Your baseline determines your current threshold. My husband explains that in order to improve something you need to have a threshold to judge it by. One definition of threshold: The point that must be exceeded to begin producing a given effect or result or to elicit a response.
Next, define your criteria for success. Write down what success means to you in each of your three areas. How will you measure your success? During the 90 day sprint, you want to encourage yourself by actually seeing results. On day 30 you must have a concrete way of measuring success. Perhaps you are trying to add muscle to a specific area in your body. The obvious choice would be a body measuring tape. Start our w before measurements and each week record your current measurements. With a proper lifting and eating plan you should begin to see a measurable result by day 30. Hopefully that spurs you on to continue to day 90.
Create a detailed plan to get you there in 90 days. Do this for each of your three items, determine what action you need to take in order see your desired results. Write it down and then take IMMEDIATE, massive action.
90 days. This time period is the key. Anybody can do anything for 30 days. What usually happens after 30 days, what I have done time and time again, is that people will see results after 30 days and then get bored and try to switch things up. Do NOT do this. Stick to your plan for 90 days. Push through the boredom, lean into the hard and you will surpass the majority who set goals, start a great plan but give up before they reach the finish line. 90 days is a great amount of time for you to see serious results. Stick with it and you WILL be successful.
Successful people are always moving forward and always seeking improvement. I’m seeking succes in three areas of my life today so I am defining my threshold, determining the criteria and making a clear action plan. I've already taken action on every single area as of the time this post is published. This gives me a great feeling of accomplishment and encouragement to press on. I will be posting about each area I'm working on in the coming months.
I hope this information helps you in your pursuit of success today. Thank you for reading.
