Goals are important to have because it focuses you on a specific task. Without a proper goal, you really aren't working towards anything. A marathoner has the finish line as his goal, as does the race car driver. A footballer has the goal as his goal, even a barrista has a goal of serving you fresh, delicious coffee each morning. Working on your health and fitness without a goal is almost pointless. Even a person with excellent health and a fit body should have the goal of making sure they stay that way. Of all goals to have, ones with your health and fitness in mind are extremely important. When you keep yourself fit, you'll look better and you'll feel better too.
Tips: Make sure goals you set are ones you'll actually do. Focusing on something you have no interest in will never inspire you. It should be effective and simple, set goals that will be fun, interesting or unique. As long as you're truly interested in working towards your goal, you'll be able to accomplish it. Also, make sure your goal is specific. "To lose weight", will hardly inspire you.
Remember: Goals are great to have, but setting one too high will only result in failure. Instead of setting your initial goal as to lose all your excesses weight, why not start off with something simple? How about a goal of losing 5 pounds? Goals don't have to be about weight loss. Set a goal of having one piece of fruit a day?
