Hello! I hope you've fully recovered from celebrating the new year. I'm proud to say I don't feel as ill anymore from eating far too much, and even managed to get some exercise in this morning too. Now I just need to do it for another 363 days! Haha...
Anyway, this morning I opened up my Sentence A Day journal, and the question today was "What kind of person do you want to be?"
Wait, what? It's too early for this sort of thing. Where's my coffee? Heeeelllpp!
Kidding aside, the question surprised me. I couldn't wrap my head around how a simple question could leave me so stumped. I had to be completely honest with myself while I was thinking about what kind of person I am now.
The one thing that stood out the most for me was that I'm a procrastinator, and I know it's definitely something I no longer want to be.
That's my main obstacle for my goals this year. I tend to put things off, and I can get really lazy. I don't want to be constantly starting things and leaving them half finished. So, how do I get over this?
I have no idea. No, actually, I have several. It's just getting them to actually stick. One of them was something I liked LuAnn's post from yesterday, about choosing a word to guide you throughout the year. I wrote two words on my board in huge letters, so I get to see them every day: GO. DO.
Another one intrigues me, and makes a whole lot of sense. Eat That Frog by Brian Tracy sounds like it was written for me, not only for the discipline part, but also because I actually have a phobia of frogs. A picture alone can cause me to hyperventilate.
I think the most effective one might be accountability though. The more people I tell about my goals, the more support, help and encouragement I can get to get things done.
Either that or I should just put on my big girl pants and get on with things. ;)
How do you overcome obstacles? Any tips?
