Happy to report that I have (finally) completed my list of goals for 2014.
|That’s certainly the plan but let’s see if we can’t “flesh it out” a bit.|
However, this year instead of setting goals, I’m making promises (an idea I am “borrowing” from Coach Corey), 21 Promises in fact. 2013 was awesome and it would be easy for me to rest on my laurels following such a tremendous year but deep down I know I can do better. So this year, I’ve decided to go all out, hold nothing back and pour my heart and soul into 2014 like it’s my last year on Earth.
Now I’ve never had a list this massive before and you’ll soon see as you read on that these “21 Promises” are incredibly ambitious (whether bravely or foolishly so remains to be seen). Once I finished the list, I immediately began to feel totally overwhelmed but I’ve committed to it and there’s no turning back now. My focus then shifted to game plan.
It occurred to me that if I’m going to pull off such a monumental feat, I have to remain focused on the “why” for each Promise I made. With a list this impressive if I lose sight of the “why” during the year, I won’t get the job done and that’s simply not an option. So I went back through the list and wrote out the reason why every Promise made the list to serve as a constant reminder of the driving force behind each Promise. There WILL be moments throughout the year when I’m tired, stressed, and inundated- this is unavoidable; however, the “why” is the mechanism that will keep moving me forward. The deeper the “why”, the more likely I am to get it done (because, let’s face it, “I want my clothes to fit better” or “I want to be in better shape” will only take me so far and will not get my tired/stressed/inundated butt out of bed with any regularity).
Now, without further delay, I give you…
|Time to rock this list out!!|
