“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” Confucius

Consistency is critical to our success. Doing little things each day will contribute more to your success than doing a whole lot in one day. I call these things my daily rituals and they work, at least for me.

Pick one thing you’d like to improve–say reading. Instead of trying to read a whole day, just read one chapter or a few pages. Do this every day and you’ll be reading more books in a year than you did previously. It’s all about consistent effort.

The same applies to exercise, learning, or writing. Just do a little each day for a pre-set time period and you’ll be better for it. Consistency is key.

Here’s what I’m up to…

Physical:

My goal is to get my body fat down to 15% by year’s end.

My last weigh-in was this morning: 224 lbs.

Bodyfat 33%

Currently following the Labrada 12-week lean body trainer. I just finished week 1 today, 11 weeks to go.

Mental:

My goal is to finish 12 online courses by year’s end. I am at 6 so far. I finished the Udemy Non-fiction writing course last week. Still working on Public Policy and Learning How to Learn.

I also want to read 36 books this year. I’m at 23 so far.

Writing my blog post every day except Sunday and work through my non-fiction project daily (knocking off little bite-size pieces as I go). Right now I’m researching, analyzing my reader and audience, and putting together topics that I’ll organize later.

Spiritual:

My goal here is to finish my discourse by year’s end, read my Bible daily, Meditate/Pray twice a day, and keep a dream and gratitude journal. All of this is on track so far.

I am participating in a workshop in Canada, another workshop here in Michigan in September, and already served on a panel and gave a talk at our spiritual center in February.

Social:

My goals are to build my readership to 500 by year’s end. I’m currently at 386! If you know anyone that would benefit from my blog, please send them my way!

Attended a Sound of Soul meetup, held by the local Eckankar group. Great fun and a nice dinner afterward!

My niece visited this week and we had some great fun. We went out to eat, saw a movie, and talked on our back porch. It was good to see her (she’s on her way back home to AZ as of an hour ago).

Well, that’s my week folks! I hope you have a terrific week!

Until next time…
