New Years Resolutions

I am sore from 3 1/2 hours of cross country skiing. Not just my legs (mostly the front of my thighs) but my triceps. I prefer to muscle up hills rather than herring bone. Not sure if that is just lazy or what.

This is resolution time for many. I prefer to just use New Years as one more excuse. I actually like setting resolutions.

The tough part for me is coming up with the larger goals first. Once I have that, the subgoals (resolutions) come quickly into focus. The most important part is knowing where you want to be. Once you know that, everything flows.

I tend to have more subgoals than I can possibly do so part of good discipline is to choose just the top 4 or 5. I keep the others but they are just in the "not now" bucket.

Resolutions for me mostly revolve around success habits. I find results come easily if I have the right habits. We are a product of what we do repeatedly. We are going to have habits - might as well make them good ones.

Happy New Years to all.

I believe the key to keeping resolutions/goals is "discipline". One can set as many goals as they want, but if they're not disciplined it may be more difficult to succeed.

Sticking with and accomplishing goals is much more than creating priority lists for me. In order to accomplish what I place on those lists, I also create time and "space" for it. That is to set time on my calendar working specifically on progression towards my goal. During that time, nothing else matters. If it is a family-oriented goal, I don't even realize work or anything else exists, or vice versa. Creating mental "space" for acheivement has been a vast improvement for me. This is something I strive to educate others on at www.businessblueprintllc.com and we've had strong success. Try it out...
