Goalbits are GOAL-based habits. The goal part is as important as the habit. Your goal should give you a "why" or a reason to persevere with your habit. Your goal should be something YOU want to change not something someone else thinks you should change.
Your goal could be to lose weight, or get fit, or save money. But why do you want to do these things? Because you think you are too heavy, too unfit or dont save enough. I would say these are the little "whys." They are certainly objectives you want to meet but weight, fitness or money are not the real “Big Why.”
Believe it or not, behind every goal is the same Big Why. That Big Why is to be happier. You think you will be happier then you are thinner. You think you will be happier when you are fitter. You think you will be happier when you have more savings. The truth is this may or may not be true. If you lose your goal weight and say, well I if I could just lose a little more weight then I will be even happier. If I could just be a little fitter I will be even more happy. If I could save a little more I would be even happier.
You can always do a little more, and its good to keep growing (or shrinking) but if you never take the time to appreciate achieving each goal along the way you will never achieve the Big Why of being happier.
Be grateful for what you have while striving for more
Be grateful for what you have while striving for more. This is how you can achieve your Big Why. Celebrate milestones, appreciate how far you have come. Focus on your successess no matter how small while all the time trying to get a little bit better.
Goals can be a good thing if you take the time to appreciate achieving them instead of being unhappy that you didnt just do a little bit more.
