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.

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

P.S.

🔥🔥 FIRED UP & FINANCIALLY READY TO EXPLODE is here! Eeeeeeekkkkkkkkkkk and a HALF! I have not been this, well, FIRED UP & READY TO EXPLODE in a LONG while.

https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/firedup

You know when something just comes through you?

And it’s HOLY FREAKING FLOW YES and all the things?

And you FEEL the fire and the gold and the energy and the NOW?

Well,

this is that.

AND THEN SOME.

I’m so proud to invite you in to this brand new course with me! I will be teaching this in a LIVE Facebook group with twice weekly livestream trainings (+ more!) – something I have not done in a very long while.

When you say yes to soul-

life says yes to you.

Fired up and Financially Ready to Explode is the NEXT level wealth and mindset strategy for the already successful woman who is done playing small!

Here’s the thing –

There are very clear reasons why you never quite get to that FULL inhale-exhale state of money freedom, even as your income and lifestyle goes up.

You can bet your sweet ass we gonna talk about those reasons. Understand them. And learn how to roll with them. BECAUSE YOU GET TO BE ABLE TO BREATHE FULLY BEING YOU.

And OMG. So much more. And a LOT of it comes down to understanding that the MONEY WORKS FOR YOU WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND HOW TO ROLL WITH YOUR OWN CHANGING NEEDS.

And? That there are a million freakin’ ways to make money and there is ALWAYS money there that gets to come from flow. So for women like us … one of the biggest FOOLHARDY AF things we can do .. is try to make our business flow respond to things we think should work, things that did work, things that are working for others, etc!

What we need instead is simple:

A clear freaking understanding of where today’s money is at. This week’s. This months. The long-terms. And how to do it all in a way where true wealth growth becomes automated and inherent to who you are. Where you can breathe fully in your creative needs each day. AND, where it’s ALL fun and yes whilst making a crazy impact on those you want to help!

In short?

You need to get FIRED UP AND FINANCIALLY READY TO EXPLODE with me.

And that’s what we’re gonna do here:
