Why Is It Important To Have Objectives

If you don’t have objectives it’s highly unlikely for you to function within normal parameters. Without knowing what you want to do is less probable to have results. When a baby learns to walk, he/she always has an objective: either to reach a toy or their parents, as they put on a funny show to call them.

When you want to see how or if you progressed, first you need to measure. If you want to lose weight you must assess how much and during which time frame. Nonetheless, my humble opinion is that not the number of kilos should be the primary concern and you should be more preoccupied to exercise regularly, not eat like you are getting ready to hibernate and to change your lifestyle. A healthier objective is to set yourself a goal of 10.000 steps every day or climbing 50 flights of stairs, so you won’t complain you haven’t got time to go to the gym. 

Setting the right objective can keep you focused, motivates you to reach that objective and if it’s something you actually can enjoy, there are more chances you’d run quicker out of excuses.

The more objectives you reach, the more eager you’d become in setting new ones – a process commonly known as progress. We all want bigger salaries and bonuses, but we need to provide more to reach them and that requires extra effort. 

A 10.000 steps daily objective may seem easier to reach than an objective of 50 km weekly, although they are pretty much the same thing. Having objectives will define you as a person, will help you (or not) getting somewhere in life, be it about finding a partner or about achieving something no one else did. A good objective creates some habits, ideally daily ones, helps in setting the general direction you’re taking and, last but not least, keeps you alert until you reach it. 

If you really don’t want to achieve something, don’t turn it into an objective and you will certainly succeed.

Good luck succeeding!
