You may think that your life is so full that you don't need one more thing to worry about. But, achievement comes with setting a goal and measuring your progress.
Dreaming and visioning can open new ideas for you; create new avenues for thinking. In order to make your dreams tangible and real, you must set goals that move you along the path leading to your goals. In this case, you've decided that you want to improve your health AND your wealth.
Set a goal that is challenging but doable. For instance, set the goal that you will walk one mile 3 times in the next week. You've set a challenging measure (walk 1 mile), one that is time-limited (in the next week), quantifiable (3 times in the next week). Once achieved, you don't go backwards, but you reset the goal to a higher, challenging and achievable measure: you will walk 1 mile in 15 minutes 4 times during the next week.
It builds on the first accomplishment, teaches you to keep improving, and gives you measurable indicators that you are accomplishing what you set out to accomplish.
