“When we go into that new project, we believe in it all the way. We have confidence in our ability to do it right.” – Walt Disney
Sometimes, when at work, I have the most brilliant ideas and thoughts. I often surprise myself. As my the big race looms closer I have given a lot of thought to my goals/resolutions/priorities and projects.
For me, resolutions (goals for the entire year) are often made to be too lofty and I lose focus on them because I have a whole year to complete it. It’s one of those things that I always think I have enough time to complete or get to, but in reality I always put it off because there will always be more time.
In the past I have also done monthly goals to go along side the resolutions, to simultaneously help one another get accomplished. Somehow or another one month always proves to be just a tad to short.
Clearly, I struggle with getting my personal goals accomplished sometimes but I really like making them and pushing myself.
Early this summer I secretly made a little “Summer Goal List” which included: unplug, save money, take vitamins regularly, and eat more yogurt.
Over the summer I went from rarely eating yogurt to eating it 2-3 times per week. I take a multi vitamin and Biotin daily. I spent a lot of time off of the twitters, Facebook, and other inter-webs. I didn’t save a whole lot of money, but I did manage to pay off some very important bills and that’s always a win!
Wouldn’t you know that a more manageable list, with a time frame that wasn’t long enough for me to forget about or so short that I felt rushed, worked like a charm! “Seasonal” goals are just right!! For me.
For most Labor Day is the end of summer. Sadly, that is not the case in Florida but I am already in the Fall/Autumn like spirit so I have prepared my Fall Goals!
- Maintain an A average in math. – It’s hard, friends! This might be the hardest one!
- Workout 5 days a week leading up to Race Day!
- Add a glucosamine supplement to my daily vitamins. – Hoping this will help with some foot pains.
- More water and more fresh foods.
- No Starbucks drink larger than Grande. – I love fall & holiday drinks at Starbucks and can easily drink Venti’s. Downsizing a few ounces will be a huge step.
- Carve a pumpkin.
- Go to a fair.
Now that I’ve got my Fall Goals in place I need a cold front to get rid the heat and humidity and few colorful leaves to start gracing my front yard!
