Goal Timeline (aka Figure out your halfway to halfway)

Once you have set a fitness goal, here’s how to break it down into manageable steps that don’t seem so intimidating. Feel free to do this exercise mentally, but it might help to pull out a pen and paper so you can write things down.

  1. Start by thinking about your goal—your desired end state. Call that Point B.

  2. Then think about where you are currently. Call that Point A.

  3. Draw a line between the two points.

  4. Now, map the steps that lead from Point A to Point B. Break the journey down into key parts. What’s halfway? What’s halfway to halfway? What are the major milestones? Note every step that will take you closer to your ultimate goal.

  5. Then take the first step!

This process works wonders. Think about the goal of one day cycling across Canada. That’s very intimidating. There are probably a thousand things you’d have to do to accomplish that goal. Where would you start? What if Step 1 is simply “go to the store and buy a map of Canada”? That doesn’t seem so hard, and once you’ve crossed it off the list, you move on to steps 2, 3 and 4.



Here’s one other tip: You can supercharge this process by getting someone else involved, like a friend, partner, mentor or coach. That person can provide objective insight, support, motivation and accountability. Or maybe you aren’t sure what the steps are and need an expert to help you lay them out.
