As I looked back over 2009, I found that I had many victories and quite a few defeats as well.
When I dived a little deeper into the defeats to determine what the cause was for these defeats, I found that they had one common thread between them. And that was a habit that I had that stopped me short of accomplishing the goal that I had set.
It was either a habit of action or a habit of thought that stopped me short of reaching these goals.
I found that completely amazing!
What I am doing this year is a little different.
I am going to…
1. Set my goals – Using the SMART goal setting method I am going to set my aggressive goals for 2010.
2. Determine the different thinking patterns and different action patterns that will be necessary to achieve these goals and work them through the Habit Busting System – By using the Habit Busting System, I will be working directly on the thoughts and actions that I need to change in order to make the habit change necessary to reach the goals.
3. Take measurable action everyday towards the achievement of these goals.
I am also going to lay myself on the line in front of you this year. I am going to post my goals this year on this website so you can see my progress. This is a little different than what I normally do but it will not only keep me accountable to me but also to the readers of this blog.
One of my major goals for 2010 is getting myself back in shape. This past year my father had some health issues that almost ended his life. I went to visit him when this was going on and I noticed something about the both of us. We are basically the same shape. Only I am a little taller. And he said something to me that really made me think, he said, “John, if you don’t take care of yourself, you could be facing these problems too.”
Well to be quite honest with you, I don’t want to be facing those problems.
I will be posting a page that will have a link on the top of this page that will go to my goals page and you will be able to follow along with me, on my path to reaching my 2010 goals.
I would love to hear your comments and suggestions as I move forward through this year.
