What I Want To, Plan To, No – What I WILL Achieve In 2009

VICTORIA'S SECRET NY 11/09/05 SHOWWant The Body Of Your Dreams? It’ll Take More Than Good Intentions

According to one of my favorite newsletters, you have little chance of achieving your New Year’s goals. In fact, your resolutions are probably just setting you up for failure.

There’s something in what they’re saying. This article, written for SixWise, is an excellently-written piece on attitude and commitment and I highly recommend you read it. But if you really don’t want to invest a couple of minutes in doing so, here’s the low-down:

  1. Most goals are based around losing weight, saving money or getting out of debt, and developing a healthy habit such as more exercise
  2. Although these goals are admirable, if you’ve set them in the past and failed to achieve what you’ve hoped, it’s probably because you didn’t get specific
  3. Setting broad goals or setting too many goals often leads to a negative mindset whereby you decide that you can’t achieve your goals before you even begin

SixWise recommends breaking goals down into bite-size chunks, and so do I. Of course, believing it is one thing, and trying to do it quite another! This morning I sat down to map out my goals for 2009. Just writing down the categories was a little overwhelming, and that’s before I even added anything to work on ..

2 coffees and a little sun later, I had my final pre-January draft:

Physically

  • Maintain my current weight at least 80% of the time (allowances for hormonal fluctuations and festivities!)
  • Find a method to regain full movement in my left arm (I broke my elbow last January and it’s healed poorly)
  • Be able to correctly perform the entire 84-posture, invite only (!) Bikram Yoga advanced series by June
  • Run the 1000 stairs in under 7 minutes 18 seconds (current PB)

My Inspiration (Bikram Advanced series)

One of the (very few so far) advanced postures I can do

Educationally

  • Complete the Charles Poliquin Biosignature course in February and apply what I’ve learned to at least 5 people each month ongoing.
  • Read at least one new book each month, not including novels of which I read plenty! (I’m reading ‘Good Calories, Bad Calories’ at the moment)
  • Complete the home Speed Reading course that’s been gathering dust on my shelf for a few months now
  • Finish my CHEK Level 2 Pre-req exams
  • Sign up for a new CHEK-based Strength & Conditioning course I’ve heard about for September 2009

Home & Family

  • Visit or phone my grandparents at least once a month – distance is no excuse
  • Save a designated amount each week toward buying our next house. Saving starts mid-Feb: it’s playtime now!
  • Clean my house a little bit daily instead of all at one in a stressful frenzy

Business Admin & Money

  • Pay off my credit card by the end of March
  • Set up PAYG tax
  • Sort out my tax receipts instead of keeping them hidden in a big drawer at the back of my wardrobe (my one area of extreme disorganization is paperwork at home, although I’m happy to say I’ve just found a great new accountant)
  • Pay off my HECS debt in full before submitting last year’s return – this will give me a discount (and make me proud of myself!)
  • A few other things of little interest to anyone but me

As A Writer

  • Contribute 4 articles consistently each week for this blog
  • 2 articles p/week for the Bikram Fitzroy FoodforYoga blog I write
  • 1 article p/week for a new blog I’m working on with a couple of colleagues (it’s an online 12-week body transformation program)
  • 5,000 readers for this blog by year end. Make sure you sign up now to help me with this one!
  • Contact one other blogger each month to help build my network
  • Complete at least one Blog Mastermind lesson every 2 weeks (it’s supposed to be one a week but man is this course detailed!)
  • By Jan 7th: finalize my structure for this blog; a plan of future posts
  • Finish that book I’ve been harping on about for nearly a year now and get it out by end of March. It’s actually been nearly done for a year now: I plan to review it myself next week and then force the editing onto a couple of useful friends.
  • Ask my beloved boyfriend to introduce my to the MD of Borders Australia, who he happens to know. Niiiice ..
  • Offer to guest post on other blogs once each month

Personal Development/Life!

  • Plan and book a trip to Europe with my man
  • Start going to church more frequently (I was brought up going to church and although I don’t often find time for it I really enjoy the service whenever I attend. I find many of the messages very applicable to business/personal success as well as spiritual

I think that will do for now! There’s one or two tweaks I’d like to make, and I definitely need to get more specific about some of these goals. For example, ‘building 5,000 readers for this blog’ is a fairly broad goal in that it inherently holds no clue as to how I might get there. Mind you, my other writing goals tie directly into that one, i.e. regular content and forming networks.

‘Maintaining my current weight at least 80% of the time’ is also a little non-descript. It’s not as though I plan to measure and weigh myself on the hour or even daily in order to ensure this holds true. However I do believe in weighing in at least once a week – I’ve noticed it holds me accountable. Having said this, in many ways a goal like this comes back to how I feel rather than the numbers.

Lofty lengthy list or not, just imagine how good I’ll feel if when I achieve all this stuff. Sure, it’s a big task, but I know that I’m capable, so really, not to tick off  these goals would just come back to laziness or poor planning. I’m not a lazy person by nature so I sure don’t want to get to the end of 2009 and realize that poor planning robbed me of a sense of self-achievement or of success.

How about you? If you haven’t taken the time to write down your goals for 2009 do it now. Thinking or dreaming really isn’t good enough. Have you heard the story about the group of Harvard graduates who were interviewed about their plans for the future? Only 7% of them had written goals. 20 years on the same group were interviewed and it was found that that 7% collectively had created more wealth and success than the remaining 93%!

That anecdote alone should be enough to ensure that if you only meet one big goal this coming year it’s to write down your goals for 2010! But don’t wait that long – make ’09 your year. The year of a BodyIncredible. Of career success. Of happiness at home and with friends. Here’s to your success.

HAVE YOU JOINED PURPOSE PASSION FLOW ACADEMY?

My ‘Going Fully Quantum’ training will break down ALL of what we’ve discussed today, and teach you the finer details and finesse of it, as well as exactly what needs to be true for you to APPLY it, not only into the practical actions you need to create THAT money flow and THOSE results, but also in terms of ALL the energetics of it, especially the ‘being and non-being’ around dropping in to superflow so you can be shown, create, receive, AND of course the being around not being one of those people who just can’t seem to choose faith and are ruled by fear. We’ll also talk about creating and integrating the exact wording, beliefs, emotions, energies YOU need for all of this to switch effortlessly for you, as you’ve always known it would.

In other words: EVERYTHING you need to know to go fully quantum, and double your income in 30 days or less, or whatever else you choose!

    Everyone needs to find what works best for them. I am more direction oriented, and that has worked well for me. I hope you have fun this year doing your list!

    Got your native bird in my last column 🙂

      Good point Dr J .. goal-setting can take place using any method that works for you. I love my lists but I know they’re not for everyone. Would be interesting to hear what works for other people. I know collages are popular, I’ve tried making one but got nothing out of it whereas others may find the visualization very effective.

    I did a collage one time in a “Vein of Gold” group. It was a wonderful experience. All the exercises are described in Julia Cameron’s book. I have a nice collage now 🙂 I do mostly figurative art, and the collage, “The Queen of the Night,” was no exception.

    @Marco I know what your saying there . In the current economy its difficult to find a job that pays good and is stable . I have discovered that if you just work hard and are consistent you can go places . Look at the author of this article, they are clearly a hard worker and have just been consistent over time and are now enjoying at least what would appear as somewhat of a success. I would encourage everyone to just keep hustling and moving forward.
