How to Breakdown a Goal

I make a number of goals; some are big, some are small and some are out of the blue “I wanna do that”.

There’s a difference between saying I’m gonna do this or that, then there is to actually do the goal. I need to think more of the goal.

The Why?

I have a goal. But what is the why behind it? There must be a reason as to how the goal came about. Having this clear should allow me to see exactly why I’m taking my time and energy on it.

Where am I?

Once I have my why?, I need to figure out where I’m already at with the goal. There’s no use me going running to do 5 miles if I can’t breathe after a few 100 yards. I have to be honesst about where I need to start from.

Break it down

This allows me to break the goal down into managable chucks. Lets go back to my running point. I could break the 5 miles down to 100 yards, 500 yards, 1 mile, 2 mile etc… Getting to each benchmark goal is worth celebrating.

Daily Plan

Once I have my benchmark goals, I can make a daily goal. Starting each day with a clean plan to execute that day. Allowing me to be one more step closer to achieving my overall goal.


Running isn’t a goal of mine. I did try to run at one point but that didn’t work. I didn’t have a plan. My asthma wasn’t helping or should I say I wasn’t taking it into consideration and my heart wasn’t in it.

All goals will be different to others. Plan and achieve whatever the goal maybe.
