5 Simple Tricks to Achieve your Goals

  1. Remove temptation. Don’t make a hard job even harder by keeping yourself surrounded by the sorts of things you should not eat.  Start your new diet plan by cleaning out the pantry, freezer, and refrigerator of all the foods you shouldn’t be eating. Toss the half eaten bags of chips or cookies or bottles of soda and the frost bitten buns, breads, and pasta dinners. Give starchy, carb-laden canned goods and unopened non-perishable items, such as pasta, rice, and beans to a local food bank.  Get them out of your house and replace them with the things you should be eating to lose weight.
  2. Tell the world. If you publically commit to a course of action, you’re more likely to follow through. So write you goal out clearly, with the result you hope to achieve; sign it and tape it to the refrigerator. Then tell your family and your friends and your coworkers what you’re doing and why. They’ll root for you to succeed and the more people in your corner, the better. When your goal is out there for all to see, you won’t want to fail.
  3. Get an accountability partner. It’s human nature that while we might not do something just for ourselves, if someone else is counting on us, we’ll usually come through for them. Get a diet partner or exercise buddy and commit to do it for each other. You won’t want to let them down and as a result you will be less likely to let yourself down.
  4. Keep a diet and exercise diary. Studies show that the commitment to record every bite you eat, sip you take, or pushup you perform can quadruple the likelihood of your weight loss success.
  5. Put your money where your mouth is – write a postdated check for an amount you can afford, but that is painful enough to matter to you; make it out to someone you really, really don’t want to give money to. (Maybe it’s the opposition political party, for instance, or some other group with whom you are ideologically at odds.) Put it into the hands of a trusted friend with instructions to mail it if you have not achieved your (reasonably attainable and written) goal by a specified date. There’s nothing more motivating
