It’s no secret that people perform better when they have goals. The problem is that goals that are unspecific - to lose weight, to get stronger, to get toned for Summer - are impossible to measure and, therefore, never get accomplished. Set very specific performance goals with actual dates and then back out a plan on how to get it done. Doing 3 chin-ups by November 15th is a tangible goal that is attainable. Wanting to get strong and do some pull ups, is not.
