Strategies for Success
Stepping down from objectives to strategies is our next focus this month! Having a BIG vision, refined by a smaller objective to target for (goals), turns into success when we state and implement strategies and systems. If we fail to plan out our changes, we are planning to fail! At the beginning of the month, we asked you to brainstorm some actions… look back through those actions and see which ones align with a strategy you can put into place to achieve your objectives. Remember these definitions? Strategies (the how) & action plan (what change will happen). Let’s look back at the 5 objectives in the Take 5! Program:
- 1. Eat Whole Foods
- - Strategy: Meal planning
- 2. Drink 64 Ounces of Water (General guideline)
- - Strategy: Use a water bottle and keep with you at all times
- 3. Eat 4-6 Servings of Vegetables Per Day (Some recommend up to 9 fruits and vegetables)
- - Strategy: Start your meal with a salad or soup
- - Strategy: Fill half your plate with vegetables
- 4. Exercise! (There are SO many! Hanging clothes on your treadmill is not one of them.)
- - Strategy: Join a class! Or Get a workout buddy.
- - Strategy: Put it on your calendar
- 5. Be Mindful (We believe this is the key to the program–mindfulness and mindset.)
- - Strategy: Wake up 5 minutes early and listen to music
- - Strategy: Journal
