Fat 2 Fit #84 – Declarations of Purposeful Objectives


Written on December 30, 2009 – 9:22 am | by Russ Turley

resolutions It’s another New Year and so it’s time for another opportunity to learn how to set goals and achieve those goals.

You may call them resolutions, but so often we use that term with huge lofty goals in mind.  Instead of making that unachievable resolution that will just leave you feeling like a failure at the end of the year, break those big resolutions into small achievable goals.  This particular show was created with exactly that reason in mind.  If you use the techniques in this show, you will lose the weight that you’ve been trying to get off for the last many years.  The alternative is next year, you will be in the exact same position you are this year, except, you will have gained even more weight.

Stop the weight gain train and set your goal to be a healthier, fitter you by the end of 2010.

    Hi guys, love the show. Always informative and entertaining. Thanks.

    Just thought you’d like to know that the Harvard study (asking the class who had (written) goals and then tracking their success) doesn’t seem to have actually existed.

    From Sid Savara’s article it seems there has been only one actual study done looking at written goals. It supports the notion that you will be more successful if you write your goals down rather than just thinking about them.

    All the best for 2010,

    I heard about this study as being one of those “pop culture” myths as well after we published the episode.

    There is another book that is coming out on January 6, 2010 by Richard Wiseman that is challenging many widely held beliefs about goal setting, self-help etc. It’s called “59 Seconds: Think a Little, Change a Lot”.

    http://www.amazon.com/59-Seconds-Think-Little-Change/dp/0307273407/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1262667811&sr=8-1

    Hopefully this will provide some better science to goal setting as well.
