Two minute goals?
What do you mean by two minute goals?!
I was reading James Clear's, Atomic Habits and he mentioned that two minute goals help you show up every day in a new Habit!
What is a 2 Minute Goal?
A two minute goal is something you can do in two minutes to help you start a new habit. We talk about hydration all the time, so I will use hydration as an example. Your goal is to get 8, 8 oz, glasses of water every day. Currently, you drink 2, 8 oz, glasses throughout the day. A two minute goal would be set an 8oz glass of water on your nightstand every night before going to bed. If you drink a glass before bed and one right as you wake up you have already increased your water intake by one or two glasses and it has only taken you two minutes to complete this new habit. To learn other ways to help you stay more hydrated visit our blog post 3 great ways to increase your water intake.
Any goal can be broken down into a simple two minute segment. So, once you have identified your goal or new habit you want to be able to show up in that goal to make it a new habit and not just a temporary change. Having a small place to start allows you to show up every time in your new habit. Yes, being a marathoner, millionaire, or CEO are all fine goals, but you really have to meet yourself where you are at. The trick is to set 2 minute goals, something you can do no mater how little motivation you have to complete the rest of the task. The theory is once you have shown up for two minutes you may just go ahead with the rest of the task, but whether you finish the rest of the task or if you just show up for the two minutes you have at least started a new habit which will lead you to accomplishing your goal.
Sometimes we are blocked from our goal because of pain and or physiological dysfunction. At this point we have to step back and look at the smaller things in life. Tim Jr has referred to these as being the 6 foundational principals.
The 6 foundational principals are:
thinking - reread your dream/goals.
breathing - in through your nose and out through your mouth using your diaphragm.
hydration - 1/2 your body weight in ounces
nutrition - eat whole foods
sleep - 7-8 hours each night.
movement - 20-30 minutes each day.
If you feel like you are blocked from reaching your goals because of pain or physiological dysfunction and would like to know how to set up a better self-care routine contact Tim Janak Jr or Tim Janak Sr. They are trained Holistic Lifestyle Coaches and believe that the true balance of the body (mind, body, and Spirit) achieves health.
