2013 Goals Project

2013 Goals Project
Tomorrow I plan to post a wrap up of how well the 2012 Goals Project participants did.  I’m so excited for them! I can’t wait to share all the good news with you. Today, however, I am putting out a plea for 2013 Goals Project participants.  Who is in?!  Here are the details:
1. Compile a list of what you want to accomplish in 2013.  These things need not all be health related, and you don’t even have to have a list.  Having one goal that you plan to work on all year is fantastic.
2. Be sure that whatever you choose is a measurable goal.  Here’s a good example of this: “By the end of 2013 I want to be able to deadlift 300 pounds.  Right now my deadlift is 215 pounds.”  Here is a bad example of this: “I want to be happy in 2013.”  An honorable goal of course, but not easily measured.
3. Choose a few goals that can be worked on for a good portion of the  year.  Here is a good example: “I want to train for and run my first marathon by August 2013.”  Here is a bad example: “I want to drop 2 pounds by my birthday on January 22, 2013.”  I DO encourage short-term as well as year-long goals, so don’t think that accomplishing something by the end of the month is worthless.  But if you are interested in participating all year long, make sure that you have something on your list that will require long-term commitment.
4. Each month I will email you requesting an update.  Let me know how you are progressing, what is going well for you with regards to your goals, and what isn’t.  Be honest!  Perfection is not expected.  If you stumble, fall, or fail, that’s life and we can all relate to it.
5. Don’t be afraid to edit throughout the year.  If you accomplish something, change your mind, your circumstances change, or just feel like changing gears, I encourage you to stay with the 2013 Goals Project!  Life is unpredictable and we’ve got to roll with the punches.  Don’t be afraid to adapt the goals you set at the beginning of the year.
6. If you’re interested, you can be featured on this site in a Focus On post.  Participation in this is entire voluntary.
That’s it!  Now, get to thinking about what you want to make happen for yourself in 2013!!!  Email me your goal(s) at Jill@FirstComesHealth.com and let’s get started!
