Last year, my resolution wasn’t specific. I want to be strong and healthy. It worked, in a way. I’m healthier than I have been in years, but I’m not sure I would call myself healthy. I’m thinner than I was last year, but I’m not thin. I didn’t fail, but I didn’t succeed.
A problem with what I did last year is that there is no way to measure it. Technically I am stronger, I am healthier, but I know in my mind that there was a goal, and I know I didn’t hit it. But when I look back to last year, technically, I did succeed.
This year, I want there to be measurable goal. I’m not going to make a list, I’m just going to pick three. Three measurable goals.
1.) Hit 140 lbs
2.) Run a 10K
3.) Hold a handstand
That’s it. Those are my two goals.
I’m usually overwhelmed by lists. I get motivated, so I sit down and make a list of all the things I want. I try to work towards every single one every day, and it becomes a lot of work. I get stressed at work, and then it’s all left behind. I’m not crazy about new years resolutions, which is why last year when I decided to make one, I went vague. I’m happy that I’ve made progress on those resolutions, but it’s hard to celebrate something you don’t really think you made.
This year, I will hit my goals. Three goals. Three things to do. But most importantly, is working on one will help with the others. I don’t have to juggle all different steps. If I work on one, I will be working on the others. If I focus on one, the others will follow.
Good luck this year everything!!
