My gym was packed yesterday, and it will be today, too.
People have their resolutions about getting fit in 2010. By January 10, I should have no problem getting my favorite treadmill each day.
All is quiet on New Year’s Day
A world in white gets underway
I want to be with you
Be with you night and day
Nothing changes on New Year’s Day
On New Year’s Day
Face it, these new years resolutions are most often broken promises, whether they are personal or professional intentions to complete a project or reform a habit.
Set concrete goals for yourself and track them – not some dubious plan that will flame out before the Jets meet the Saints in the Super Bowl next month (you like how I worked that in?).
It can be one thing, five things, or 20 things – sit down and work out what you want to accomplish this year. And then put each goal in your calendar with a deadline.
Personally, I love Google Calendar for this, because it syncs well with a Blackberry or iPhone and it’s there on any computer when I login. But you can do this on all sorts of platforms.
Here’s your first goal: read Getting Things Done by David Allen. Go now and order it online and knock it out in a few days.
Also, go and bookmark UpgradeMe.org and start reading it – the guy behind it, Aaron Dragushan, had great tips on becoming more productive.
Stop the madness in 2010 and make your breaks.
