I’ve spoken many times about the power of setting specific goals and holding yourself accountable.
It’s now time to put my money where my stomach is!
What better way to prove the power goal setting than to use myself as an example.
I weigh 177lbs. That makes me about 20 pounds overweight. I have not weighed under 160lbs since college (about 20 years ago).
This last weekend I set a specific weight goal for myself. However, I’m doing one more thing to make sure I stick to it. I will be committing to it by announcing this goal to all of you so you can hold me accountable.
I will weigh 157lbs by January 30th, 2010 and stay under 160lbs for, at least, the following 12 months.
Remember, I’m a business coach. My job is to help people reach their goals. So, if I can’t do this, what kind of credibility will that give me as a coach? That’s why having you hold me accountable is so important…and scary. Failure is not an option for me.
I will be updated you time to time on my progress so you an either pat me on the back or kick me in the ass!!
So, I’d like to ask you to do 2 things:
- Hold me accountable. Don’t let me off the hook.
- Identify a goal that’s important to you that you haven’t been able to achieve. Make sure you have a specific goal, and then, do something scary to hold yourself accountable. Don’t let failure be an option.
Thanks for your help. Now, Iv’e got to go eat a carrot.
