I figured, therefore, it was high time I set myself some goals.
Because of my tendency to be hard on myself – I expect way too much then beat myself up for failing - my goals must be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-bound. Gotta love those business cliche’s, you can tell it’s mid-year review time for me.
So – by the end of March I will:
- drink 2 litres of water daily
- exercise for 1 hour daily (all forms count, so today I had a 30 minute personal trainer session followed by a 15-20 minute walk to my client’s office and there’ll be another 15-20 minute walk back to my own office this arvo)
- get 7-8 hours sleep every night
- lose 3 kilos (1kg per week is attainable. I had a mind to get below 100kg by the end of March, but while that *might* be possible with super human effort, it’s not strictly in the realms of realistic and attainable goals and would have provided me with a spectacular excuse to feel like a failure)
You have my permission to pull me up on it if I don’t report back regularly with my results.
