Today, I want to share two of my goals.
The end of 2011 is a couple months away, but in order to remain focused I have set some hard, but achievable goals.
“If people can’t see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; But when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed.
Proverbs 29:18 (The Message)
I need the challenge, it helps me stay resolved and keeps me out of trouble.
1) Physical Life: Since September 2010, I have lost 60 pounds. 60! Never in my life have I succeeded like this regarding weight loss. For a couple months, I have simply maintained, but I am now ready to move forward.
I’ve settled into my job, I have a semi-regular routine for exercise, I am more aware of my triggers.
I’m ready to go for 40 more!
I will check in and use this blog for accountability on Thursdays. Good or bad. I will be honest and share my week’s update.
2) Work Life: Since around 2007, I’ve had a character who came to me and is dying to have his story written. I’ve written bits and pieces. I’ve halfheartedly tried.
My goal is to sit my butt in a chair and finish his story in a really shitty first draft. I’ve got a novel in me and I’ve got to bring it forth.
No more excuses, I’m either a writer or I’m not. And last time I checked, I wasn’t going to let Resistance stop me. And I’ve got the complete series of I Love Lucy riding on this – so I better get this down on paper.
So 40 pounds and 85,000 words. Weigh less and write more. In 103 days.
I attended the Quitter Conference with a guy named Nolan. I actually didn’t meet Nolan or his family, but I’ve been following his blog. He has inspired me with this idea. He is also working on weight loss and completing his book by year’s end. Thanks Nolan for inspiration and courage to put this out here!
And you – any goals you’d like to share? I’d love to know.
How refreshing to end this year in relentless pursuit of your dreams, of achieving goals!
Let’s do what it takes. Let’s encourage one another. Let’s hustle.
