Short Vs. Long Term Goals. Which Is More Important?

When you embark on a new journey to accomplish a fitness goal, it’s usually a good idea to come up with some goals to hit. Without goals, you have no direction. This means any method will get you to your destination because, well, you don’t have a destination. You’re [working out, eating better, getting more steps] just… because.

But if thats the case, how do you know you’re successful?

You can’t!

Starting a new health and fitness regimen without goals is a surefire way to stay in a continual state of not knowing if you’re actually doing anything of value.

But when it comes to goal setting… which is more important? Short or long term goals?

Well… both.

Long term goals are the success stories you hear about. They are the impressive before and after photos, the video you post performing that monumentally difficult exercise, and the pants you pose with to show just how far you’ve come.
