One Thing

What one thing can you do right now to get over the barrier that is standing between you and achieving your goal?

One of our Be, Do and Have More (of what you want) Goals Challenge participants told me yesterday how she is nailing her fitness goal. She is running and lifting weights. She is doing it consistently and justifiably feeling great about it.

I’m impressed. Even though I stated that my “l0se 12 lbs” goals would be easy-peasy, I have done very little of what I said I needed to do to achieve this goal. I’ve walked a bit, but not nearly enough and certainly not consistently enough.

Her advice to me: do it first thing in the morning. Lay out your workout clothes and don’t do anything (other than pee) before you run or walk. No coffee, no checking email no morning news, just get it done.

Wow, I know this but I have not been doing it. This morning, I was out the door, not quite as soon as I got up, but before I did any work. I don’t need to concentrate on how far or how fast and it certainly hasn’t worked trying to schedule in my exercise. What does work is focusing on getting my shoes on and getting out the door before I start work. That’s it – If I’m outside in my shoes before work, I win. Now maybe my 12 lb goal will be easy-peasy.

What about you?

If you are trying to get out of debt, maybe your little hurdle is packing that lunch the night before. When you walk out the door with that brown bag, you’ve started your day with a win.
