NLP Perth | Breakdown Your Goals to Workable Steps


Now that you’ve set some goals, lets break it down and see what to do next.

For example

Let’s break down a “Health Goal”  “Over the next three months, I would like to lose 10 Kilos by following a balanced diet, exercising three times a week, and track my progress into actionable steps, including what to do next and how to measure my progress.

Health Goal: Lose 10 Kilos in Three Months

Step 1: Create a Balanced Diet Plan

What to Do: Research and design a balanced diet plan that includes a variety of nutrient-rich foods. Focus on portion control, whole grains, lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats.

Measurement: Create a weekly meal plan that outlines my daily intake of calories, macronutrients, and essential vitamins.

Step 2: Schedule Exercise Sessions

What to Do: Determine a workout routine that suits my fitness level and preferences. Aim for at least three sessions per week, including a mix of cardio and strength training exercises.

Measurement: Create a workout schedule that specifies the type, duration, and intensity of each exercise session.

Step 3: Set Up Progress Tracking

What to Do: Choose a method to track my progress. This could involve taking measurements, weighing myself, or using a fitness app to monitor my diet and exercise.

Measurement: Record my starting weight and measurements, and take weekly updates to track my weight loss journey.

Step 4: Monitor Caloric Intake

What to Do: Use a calorie tracking app or journal to keep track of my daily caloric intake. Ensure I’m in a caloric deficit to support weight loss.

Measurement: Log my food intake each day to ensure I’m sticking to my caloric goals.

Step 5: Stay Consistent with Workouts

What to Do: Follow my workout schedule diligently. Engage in both cardio and strength training to promote fat loss and muscle maintenance.

Measurement: Track the number of exercise sessions I complete each week and note any improvements in my fitness levels.

Step 6: Practice Mindful Eating

What to Do: Pay attention to my eating habits. Eat slowly, savor your meals, and avoid emotional eating.

Measurement: Keep a journal of my eating habits, noting any instances of mindful eating and areas for improvement.

Step 7: Adjust Based on Progress

What to Do: Regularly assess my progress. If I’m not seeing the desired results, consider adjusting my diet or exercise routine.

Measurement: Compare my weekly weight loss to my target progress to determine if I’m on track.

Step 8: Celebrate Milestones

What to Do: Acknowledge and celebrate my achievements. This could be reaching a specific weight loss milestone or achieving a fitness goal.

Measurement: Set small milestones, such as losing the first 2 kilos, and treat myself to a reward or celebration when I achieve them.

Step 9: Reflect and Adapt

What to Do: Reflect on my experience after the three-month period. Assess what worked well and what could be improved.

Measurement: Compare my final weight and measurements to my initial ones. Reflect on how I feel both physically and mentally.

Step 10: Maintain Results

What to Do: After achieving my weight loss goal, transition into a maintenance plan that allows me to sustain my progress.

Measurement: Continuously monitor my weight and make adjustments to my diet and exercise routine as needed to maintain my new trajectory.

By breaking down your health goal into these actionable steps and consistently measuring your progress, you’ll have a clear roadmap to follow on your journey toward losing 10 kilos over the next three months.
