Making things happen

One of the best ways to making things happen is to plan ahead. It's always good to say you're going somewhere but it's better to plan out how to get there. Achieving big plans (for instance, running a marathon) requires lots of little plans (running a certain amount of days/miles per week.)

Commit to a big plan or goal but also commit to the little goals.

A lot of people blow off little goals but in all honesty they really matter. Start somewhere and keep moving... that's how you set yourself up for success.

The other great thing about little goals is that they build your confidence and set you up for your bigger goals. It's like a domino effect. One good choice tends to lead to another good choice.

Another tip: accountability is huge. If you need someone to stay accountable to I encourage you to pick someone you will comfortable being completely honest with. There is no sense in having an accountability partner if you won't be honest. If you don't feel like you have someone in your life please e-mail me! I'd love to help you stay accountable. We are all be bff here :)

Make it your goal this week to choose a handful of things you plan to stick with all week long! Don't choose anything outrageous. Just a few, realistic, beneficial commitments.

This week my goals are to:

  1. Run 3 days this week 
  2. Do one plank a day (I've totally been slacking on these)
  3. Drink more water
  4. Bring my lunch everyday to work (this will be a toughy for me!)

What will you commit to this week?
