Performance vs. Outcome Goals
From the desk of Jaylin Allen, Certified Personal Trainer... Some people feel better about goals they have complete control over. These are performance goals such as exercising four times a week, eating whole foods, eating breakfast, or drinking eight glasses of water a day. You may find it very satisfying to know at the end of the day that you have accomplished all of your goals for the day. As you continuously perform these goals they will most likely lead to the outcome that you desire.
On the other hand, some people do not find it very inspiring to think about the "work" they have to do to get to their desired outcome. They prefer to focus on their desired outcome, what they will receive for all of their work. This could be fitting into clothes again, being able to do twenty push-ups, feeling good in a bathing suit, or having confidence and energy to name a few. That’s what gets them to do their workouts, fill their plates with nutritious food and take care of their health.
The point it, find which type of goal motivates you – and use it to keep you moving towards what you really want - that is the way to succeed.
