Without setting great goals, you won’t know what you are working towards, how to get where you want to be or when you have reached your destination. During the Zero 2 Healthy Human program, goals are presented as challenges. For the most part, your goals are written for you and reaching the finish line is as simple as completing the challenges presented to you step by step. If you decide to take on a Bonus, Tribe or Advanced Challenge (and we hope you will), you will use the guidelines and suggestions we have for you to create your own challenges and track them in the Fillable Challenges Tracker. Here are a few tips for creating great goals:
1. Your goals need to motivate you and be important to you.
When you are choosing Advanced Track, Tribe & Bonus Challenges, you will find yourself naturally gravitating towards challenges that align with your priorities.
2. Once you know what is important to you, it is time to define your goals.
Great goals are also S.M.A.R.T. goals:
3. Lastly, set your goals in writing and share them with others to increase your chances of succeeding.
Use our Fillable Challenges Tracker to write in your goals and track your progress, then share your goals with your tribe.

If done cleverly, great goals can help you turn desired behaviors into automatic habits. In James Clear’s book, Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits and Break Bad Ones, Clear discusses how very small changes can compound to produce big differences over time. He provides a framework for creating systems that lead to automatic habits. Find out more about the book and how to get your hands on the bonus materials at: https://jamesclear.com/atomic-habits.
