I’ll Show You Mine, if You’ll Show Me Yours

I’ve been asked recently about my personal philosophies on setting New Year’s Resolutions. While I don’t think they’re for everyone, I DO think goal setting is. Anyone can set a goal. Everyone can be successful in achieving SMART goals if they follow some simple tips. Since tip # 6 is all about sharing your goal with others, I encourage you to do so. What do you want to accomplish in 2011? A networking colleague asked specifically what goals members of his network were setting for a healthier 2011. I thought I’d share mine in the spirit of tip #6, so here they are:

For my personal health I’m resolving to stay hydrated by drinking at least 64 ounces of water each day. I’m also going to continue my committment to exercising for 30-60 minutes 5-6 days a week. (3 days cardio, 2 strenth training and 1 yoga/pilates) My energy level and productivity both benefit in huge ways when I do  these things (plus I’m a lot more fun to be around – and this benefits the health of my relationships).

For the health of my business, Simply Placed, I resolve to “Eat a Frog” each day before I get on (or lost) in email, and “reactive mode”. I will do 1 high priority task first thing that will make the biggest difference to our clients, or to business development, before any lower value tasks. (“Eat a Frog” is a term coined by author/speaker Brian Tracy, and something I’ve talked about during presentations and written about on our blog – such a great, productive concept!).

OK, so I’ve shown you mine, will you show me yours? Let us know how we can support you in achieving your goals in the New Year.

  1. Hi Debbie, drinking more water is one of my top goals this year as well. Although it is a tough one for me, as I do not like the taste of water (yes, I know, most people cannot taste water). So I have to “trick” my taste buds by adding a bit of fresh-squeezed lemon, orange or even sliced cucumbers. I think it will be fun trying different flavors! Anyone have more suggestions for me?

      If you don’t mind adding a few calories, you could consider a splash of cranberry juice as well. I’m raising a glass to you and your goal right now … cheers!

    Talking with you about my goals Monday has generated a productive week, Debbie. Thank you!

    I attribute much of the success to eating frogs in my slippers…as this week of no morning face-to-face client appointments has allowed me to accomplish something big before I showered. A propelling change of pace!
