January is in full swing - How are those New Years Resolutions
coming along? Looking for a bit of motivation to keep things moving
forward? Its a proven fact that giving yourself a timeline to
achieve your goals will help keep you focused. Set a target date to
evaluate your progress, take small steps every day towards the
goal, accept that there may be small setbacks along the way, and
don't beat yourself up over them. Accept them, understand why they
happen and move on! Perhaps the best way to stay committed...invite
your friends along, Everything is more fun with company!
As I sit and reflect on the year that was 2011, I must admit,
two children in three years has knocked me down a few pegs and
hasn't seen me setting too many goals for myself other than the
basics, like showering daily, eating before noon, and sleeping for
more than 2 hours at a time! 2012 is different; I am setting some
real targets for myself.
In this day of "social connectivity" I will endeavor to achieve
a healthier balance between work and happy living, to just
be in the moment, and not so focused on what I should be
doing, blogging, face booking or tweeting!
Also with all the great new events 5 Peaks Adventures has lined
up, I'm participating. No more standing behind the "too busy
organizing" excuse. I will run!!! I can't wait to get out there on
the trails with you, go easy on me please!
Over the last few weeks, I've come across some great
inspirational quotes and thought I would share 5 of them with you.
I hope they help to inspire you in 2012!
If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or
anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life.
There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay
there, you must go beyond them. - Bruce Lee
Running is a big question mark that's there each and every
day. It asks you, "Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to
be strong today?" - Peter Maher
You will never find time for anything. If you want time, you
must make it. - Charles Buxton
Run hard, be strong, think big! - Percy Cerutty
If someone says, 'Hey, I ran 100 miles this week. How far
did you run?' ignore him! What the hell difference does it
make?.... The magic is in the man, not the 100 miles. - Bill
