The festive week is upon us and I bet that you have been preparing for finishing work, you might even be on holiday already or rushing around finalising Christmas plans. What ever you are doing, I thought I'd take the time to write today and give you some ideas that might help you in the new year.
In late 2013 I was in the middle of my weight loss and I picked up an injury, it was tough mentally because I had to rest for a whole month and manage my diet accordingly. During the December I set myself some goals to reach in 2014 and I stuck to them as much as I could.
According to the survey people, otherwise known as 'they', it would seem that in the region of 8-10% of people actually stick to their New Year's Resolutions... Why? Well I truly believe that it is because they follow a simple recipe.
So don't sit there waiting for 2016 to start, get your pen and paper now! Put your goals down on it for the year ahead. Pin it up where you will see it every day and then use another piece of paper to strategise your path towards the goals.
Here are two of my goals going forward:
My strategy towards both is to practice handstands every day and to read, research and write every day. Simple goals and simple strategy.
Here is my first part of handstand practice caught in front of a Botswana sunset.
I wrote another post on goal setting before, there is so much potential in each one of us to achieve what we want in life it is silly to squander our time. Start making progress towards your goals today to make 2016 the year for you! Have an awesome Christmas and look out for a Christmas Fitness post on Friday morning!
Stay Strong and Keep Moving!
