“If you’re bored with life – you don’t get up every morning with a burning desire to do things – you don’t have enough goals. ” – Lou Holtz
One of my goals is to continue to improve my body through exercise, proper supplementation, diet, and sleep. I am driven by this goal. The first thing I do each day is drinking my pre-workout, looking at my workout routine for the day, and heading to the gym, without fail. This is what Lou Holtz is talking about.
I try to keep myself balanced by only working on three goals at a time. Too many goals spread me out too much and I lose the necessary focus. I also try to keep my daily priority tasks to three things as well and complete them without fail.
If you’ve read some of my other postings, I tend to focus on four areas: Mental, Physical, Social, and Spiritual. These areas keep me focused on what is most important to me and helps me continue to improve each of these areas one step at a time.
One thing I measure is my interest level in a particular goal. Sometimes I need to shift my priorities. If I feel like I’m pulling teeth to do something, I put a hold on that goal and replace it with something else. This way, I focus on the things I really want to do at the moment and stick with them for around 12-13 weeks. I measure my progress weekly and continually measure my interest level. I don’t erase the goal mind you but put it on hold.
Life is too short to force myself to do things I just don’t want to do. Enjoy your life. Set goals you want to achieve and have no issue working on daily. You’ll find you are more productive and you’ll also enjoy your day more.
Well, that’s it for today folks.
As always, thank you for visiting and reading my postings. I wish you well in the pursuit of your goals and hope you have a great Thursday!
Until next time…
