How to Fix the Way We Think About Goals!

By Professor Beane

Let’s pick up from where we left off last time. For those of you newly joining us, let me catch you up to speed. S.M.A.R.T Goals don’t work. Sorry. Let’s come up with a list of requirements for a goal setting method that can solve some of the issues with S.M.A.R.T Goals.

What qualifications does a goal framework need to meet to be successful? Your goals need to be linked to your values. This will take care of the issue of your goals not actually being yours. If you have values, and you should have values, then your goals need to be linked and in line with your values. Perhaps you even have a goal or two for each of your values. 

That will allow you to move upward on the things that matter most to you. If you have your goals linked to your values then you have a deeply rooted “Why” for each of your goals. This is essential for putting the work in to achieve your goals. Your “Why” will act like your “magical mystery motivational mojo juice.” Because when you link your goals to your values, you will begin to value the work you’re doing to achieve that goal. (You see what I did there?) 

When the work you are doing to reach your goals becomes meaningful to you, you begin to go out of your way to put the work in. Just think for a moment about how amazing it would be to get fulfillment out of putting the work in. I mean, when was the last time you enjoyed doing work? This is not to say it will be easy, because any goal worth achieving is and will be challenging. But who said you can’t enjoy the challenge?

Your goal needs to push your comfort zone. This, by definition, will be challenging. The comfort zone is just that, it’s comfortable. I like to think about the comfort zone like… FULL ARTICLE

Matthew - Age 15

I have been at Tri-Star since the summer of 5th grade so I want to say 5 almost 6 years I’m not to certain but it’s enough to know it has changed my life.

I started martial arts because I needed to get active in some sort of way. We looked at almost everything until landing on martial arts and specially we saw Tri-Star and after reading the amazing reviews we knew we had to give it a try, so I did the trial fell in love and knew this is something I want to do and still in love with it since then.

Tri-Star has forever changed my life, and it’s the small things not just the big things it has helped me with, some examples being my manners, my respect in general, my speaking capability and most importantly how it got me out my comfort zone to the point where I really don’t feel awkward in any life scenarios, also something huge that Tri-Star has helped me with are interviews experiencing a interview at the age of 12 has really helped me now at 15 go through interviews and job experiences with no worry at all.

My ultimate goal with martial arts is to be able what I have learned from it and put it out into something good, whether it be making a difference for the community or even taking my physical training experiences and using it to progress more in the martial arts world with taking what I have learned from Tri-Star and being able to implement into whatever training I pursue and how I use it to show the effect it has had on me.

My goal with school is to do as good as possible so that I have a greater chance to pursue my dream job and get into my dream college. My school provides many opportunities for me to get to that point so if I just stay on track and in line I will achieve the dream I’ve had set for a while now.

What I want to do when I grow up has been a question that I was always thinking about but i wasn’t to sure about it till this year actually where when looking at jobs and other opportunities that the school has shown us. I came to the conclusion after finding out about kankakee career center where they have a fire and emt training, and that’s when I knew for sure I want to do something in the fire field, so my goal is to become a fire fighter for a few years but more then that become and fire and arson investigator where I get more involved with the actual conclusion of how the fire was started. Now I just have to make sure I achieve this goal of mine.

One the most important and meaningful things I have learned from not only just one instructor but really all of them is to just have fun with what you do. Now that doesn’t come with always messing around but it’s knowing when it’s time to be strict and to lock in. That right there has always stuck with me with anything I do in life, from my job to school to hanging with friends your always going to have fun with it but there will be times it has to be taken seriously. I will forever be grateful for that lesson.

To stop making excuses, stepped into action, and made her health goals a reality!! Way to go Kristy!!! 💪
 
“‘Someday maybe I’ll be able to lose the weight.’
 
I thought that for SO LONG!! I tried so many things. All the failure messed with my confidence. All the failure kept me stuck in a place where I was not content.
 
But, I took a leap of faith one day, and lost the weight by making and keeping promises to myself. That felt great!!”
 
It starts with a decision!

WAIST CIRCUMFERERENCE!

Good To Know...

WAIST CIRCUMFERERENCE!
 
This is an important metric to track as excess weight around your middle is a huge indicator of all cause mortality.
 
AND – this one is easy to measure as a flexible measuring tape is an inexpensive by and simply to use!
Today’s challenge: check your waist circumference!
 
According to Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, “The danger zone begins at a waist circumference >88 cm ( 35 inches ) for women and >102 cm (40 inches ) for men.”
 
Another way to measure is in your waist-to-height ratio, found by dividing your waist by your height. The target is easy to remember.
 
A waist circumference of less than half your height will lower your health risks.
 
Research across the globe showed elevated risks of high blood pressure, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease for people with waists more than half their height, regardless of body size or frame.
 
To get a good read on this, grab your tape measure:
 
1. Start at the top of your hip bone, then bring the tape measure all the way around your body, level with your belly button.
2. Make sure it’s not too tight and that it’s straight, even at the back. Don’t hold your breath while measuring.
3. Check the number on the tape measure right after you exhale.
Do you know this number? How are you doing?
 
PS: Don’t fall into shame if you’re not at the ideal spot by this metric! Give yourself credit for assessing your current reality and look at a lifestyle plan to help you bring this ratio into optimal territory!
