My gym is packed from January 2nd until about Valentine's Day.
Why do so many sincerely made resolutions poop out? More importantly, how can I keep consistent with many of my healthy choices?
This is the first of two tools that work for me.
I start with the end of my life.
What do I want my closest people to say about me after I die? Rather than being morbid, this practice keeps me in line with my mission.
I think about three dimensions:
Then I work backwards in time.
If that's my mission, what do I want to be/have done in 10 years? 3 years? 1 year? This month? Tomorrow? Today?
Then the choices I make today are more meaningful. This helps me get to the gym when I don't want to go. To call my mom every couple of days. To put up some boundaries around my work time and energy.
Happy New Year. Let's get aligned with our greater missions.

Patience, Persistence, and Play. Three words that can be applied to everything we do. Read what I’m focusing on this month and learn what grounds me every day. Hopefully it will help you, too!
