It's hard to believe that another year is about to come to an end. Where does the time go?
In past years, I've practiced a variety of end of year rituals that include creating a vision board, choosing a word of the year, and setting traditional resolutions, just to name a few.
While each practice provided some value, none of them seemed to provide the consistency of habits I needed to stay on track with my goals throughout the year.
If you are leading a busy life, you know how easy it is to have your best-laid plans derailed by unexpected life events and increasing personal and professional responsibilities.
This year, I decided to take a new approach and created a simple 3-step process to set myself up for sustained success.
Remember to set up a simple system (not overly complicated or time-consuming) to review your progress at least weekly. This will help you to see your progress, identify where you may be off-track and adjust your plan accordingly. Find support and accountability to ensure your success. Tell a friend or family member, find a trusted advisor, coach or mentor to help you make forward progress and overcome unexpected obstacles.
My outcome from this process is to be consistent, follow through, and keep it simple as it relates to my health and fitness goals. These 7 words will serve as a daily mantra to keep me on track this year.
If you use the end of ritual outlined above, let me know how it goes for you by sharing in the comments below.
