Front-Loading Your Goals

Planning a significant achievement this year? Pro tip: To the extent possible, front-load your goal.
Christi Hegstad January 4th, 2021
One thing I love about working with coaching clients for several months to a year or more is the ebb and flow we experience with goals.
You know how some days you feel high-energy and productive and fired up about your goals?
And other days … not so much?
That’s perfectly natural. It can also be leveraged as part of your achievement strategy.
This week, front-load your goals.
When you first embark on a goal, you likely feel high motivation to make it happen.
Structure your action plan to ride that wave.
For example, if you set a goal to run 1,000 miles in 2021, don’t just break it up into a 250-mile sub-goal every quarter.
Aim for 300 – or even 350 – miles in Q1, taking advantage of your increased energy and motivation at the start.
Not only will this build momentum and set you up for success, it will help future-you when something else momentarily takes precedence or when you simply feel a dip in motivation.
Just like you try to honor your energy rhythms throughout the day, do the same with your ridiculously awesome goals. Your future self will thank you!
