Unrealistic and Sudden Goals

We decide to suddenly start to follow our new daily routine, incorrectly assuming that suddenly we have changed, and are now a completely different and new person.

It is unrealistic to suddenly change from today to tomorrow; it's better to change in a gradual manner.

Failure is Baked In

Not being able to achieve your target or failing on some days, even unable to continue, is part of your journey, and is a lesson for you to dust yourself and get back up. 

If we feel lost and give up after a failure, then we are just looking for an excuse. Failure is required for you to succeed eventually.

Setting Goals with Motivation

Our self-belief and the supply of daily motivation we are to get are key factors in our success, much more than just setting the right goals, which requires little effort.

Being positive and committed to your goals goes a long way in being able to realize them.

SMART Goals are Not Smart

Most of the books dealing with goal-setting talk about S.M.A.R.T. goal framework - goals that are: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-bound.

While this is a good start, being time-bound in our new self-commitments has its drawbacks.
