As we enter the New Year many of our thoughts turn to what we want to resolve to do in 2013. I don’t much care for resolutions anymore. Years ago I got tired of listing – loose ten pounds as one of the things I resolved to do that year and then realizing at the end of the year I hadn’t even lost one. Instead of resolutions I now come up with goals.
What we do or do not do today affects our tomorrows. The life you want to live, the body you want to have, or the runner you want to be – aren’t things that happen over one night. YET if you keep this simple principle in mind you can see yourself literally transform before your very eyes. If you want to loose 20 pounds don’t think about the 20 pounds all at once. Think in terms of a pound or two and soon you will be on your way to loosing all 20. If you want to run 20 miles, don’t think about the 20 miles all at once. Start with one mile and work your way up. It make take you 6 months before you can run 6 miles but by the end of 2013 I’m betting you will be able to run all 20.
When you want to sleep in and skip a run….ask yourself….will you regret it later?
When you want that second piece of cheesecake….ask yourself….will you regret it later?
When you put off to tomorrow what should be done today….ask yourself….will you regret it later?
Do you like resolutions or goals?
