A couple of days ago, I revisited my goals for 2017. I was reminded that I must complete 8 5Ks this year. It doesn't matter if I walk, run, or crawl, just as long as I complete 8 as planned!
For obvious reasons (check out my May blog post), I haven't tackled any of the 8...yet, but I am beginning to feel up the the challenge now that I'm almost fully healed from three major surgeries I had exactly 2 months ago today! I guess I'd better start looking for some 5Ks to participate in. Got any suggestions for events in the Kansas City or Washington D.C. area?
I have several other goals for this year. Some of which I've done a pretty good job of keeping up with and others I have not. One thing I do know is that each time I revisit my list of goals, it reinvigorates my desire to accomplish them.
I don't know about you, but I often have what seems like 1 million thoughts and ideas swirling around in my head. So much so that if I don't capture them on paper I find that I'm paralyzed by all that needs to be done. It can be pretty overwhelming!! I've learned that making lists is important first step to me getting anything done. Having a To Do list for my every day tasks is imperative and so is having one for my annual goals. What I did this year is categorize them. I broke my goals up into these categories:
Health and Fitness
The only thing I should do that I haven't is print them off and post them where I can see them every day. Instead, I have them trapped in my phone on my Evernote app (it's a great app by the way!). I put them there so that I can access them from any device any time I'd like. How about you? What's your way of capturing your goals? Do you have any BHAGs for the year? Oh, that stands for BIG Hairy Audacious Goal!
This morning I heard someone say that there are 120 business days left in 2017....not very many! So, what will you accomplish before we ring in 2018?
