The difference between short and long term goals is obvious.
How do they relate to your fitness, health and life in general?
Short Term Goals
These are great for making sure you get things done or being able to make the most of your free time.
For example I’ll do 5 push up’s every hour for the rest of the day.
That’s 80 push ups throughout the day, if you stay up 16 hours and slept for 8 hours everyday (like a good majority of people do.)
So looking at it like 16 different set’s of 5 can quickly turn something that seemed impossible to do, into a daily activity. Although hearing the prospects of that hypothesis you probably think there’s absolutely no point in long term goals, You’re probably thinking “80 push ups a day is a great goal to achieve” it is don’t get me wrong. That’s a huge accomplishment for most people, there are a lot of people who can do push ups but who do you know that can do 80? The difference between people who can do push ups, who can do 80 in a day or even 80 in a row is long term goals
Long Term Goals
These help refine and build a person.
Having long term goals like “I want to lose 100 pounds by the end of the year” aren’t unrealistic whatsoever and let me explain why that is.
