Re-evaluate and reprioritize

There was likely a reason you gave up on your goals. Think about why you lost momentum and what you truly want to accomplish next. To set new goals:

  • Think about whether you have the time to dedicate yourself to pursuing it.

Be specific about the steps you’ll need to take, habits you need to build, and the performance levels you seek.
