Habits Instead of Goals

It’s quite simple, actually.

The way I see it, a habit actually leads to a goal.

For example, if you want to have a clean body, you must develop the habit of washing yourself regularly. If you want to lose weight, you might develop the habit of working out.

What you do today influences what will happen with your long term goals.

This is the trick that eludes most people, when starting out, the goal is not the goal, but rather the goal is to create the habit(s) that will allow you to achieve your goal. Your first goal is to focus for as long as it takes to create a habit.

Once you’re on autopilot, it will be far more difficult to give up on working out, no matter what.

  1. Yes! New good habits lead to positive results in the future. Goals are fine but it’s too easy to fall in love with the goal rather than making changes to reach that goal. If you ingrain the habits, they become so second nature that you see the results before you know it. Great post!
