Avoid goals are usually to do with something you don’t want.
I don’t want to be fat, so I’m going to stop eating crisps, chocolate, and anything bad for me.
Approach goals involve things you do want.
I want to be healthier so I’m going to prepare vegetables in delicious yet healthy ways.
Approach goals help you feel in charge. You are responsible for your own life.
You can set realistic expectations.
For example; it’s more achievable to say I’m going to eat vegetables with every dinner than it is to say, I’m going to cut out all junk food.
It’s all about growth and day-to-day progress.
Breaking up intimidatingly large projects into smaller, manageable pieces will produce better results.
Cutting out all junk is usually a quick, temporary fix. Deciding to embark on healthful habits is a long-term process with a big payoff.
