Have you ever said to yourself "I'll try to eat more healthy"? "I'll try to get organized?" Don't.
"I'll try to eat more healthy" doesn't really say anything. What does "more healthy" mean?
- "I'll only eat vegetables and fruits instead of the sugar packed junk I'm used to"?
- "Ok, I'll eat an apple if I forgot to buy the junk food I'm used to"?
- What does "I'll try" mean anyway?
Not only is it easy to review this goal. It's also easy to plan ahead to make this goal a reality. If you're in the store with "I'll try to eat more healty" all kinds of excuses might come up. Like "Yeah, I'd really like to make this healthy dinner, but unfortunately I don't know the recipe right now, so I don't know what to buy. Maybe tomorrow."
On the other hand "3 kinds of fruit every single day" is a clear thing. You have to buy 3 kinds of fruit. Today.
