Plan your way to success

You realize planning is the key to success, right?

Here's the bottom line...

If you plan, and I mean really plan things out (not just making your lunch the day before, but plan out meal by meal, grocery trip by grocery trip, workout by workout for the next 4-12 weeks), you will lose fat and achieve more than you everthought possible.  This is the stuff of legends.

It is that level of planning that brings exceptional results. And can help you avoid months of wasted work due to a last-second poor decision that conflicted with your original goals. - Take 3 hours and plan out your next 3 months. You might find this incredibly hard, or perhaps incredibly liberating, but each time incredibly hard, or perhaps incredibly liberating, but each time you do it you will get better at it.  

- Take this game plan and be flexible, but use it to avoid obstacles.

- Review the folks who have won past competitions. Their stories hold the secrets to success!

Hey Craig,

I'm only now beginning to realize the importance of goal setting. I wish I'd figured this out long ago. It was really helpful reading about your day on the other site. You get a lot done! Very impressive.

As they say..."failing to plan is planning to fail." I think this is one of the most underlooked and detrimental aspects of overall fitness success.
