Pre New Years Resolution
Alwyn Cosgrove recently sent his newsletter out talking about how Oct. 1st is the start of the final quarter of the year. Alwyn is an incredibly respected strength coach, trainer, and business man as his gym is rated in the top 10 in the country. He mentions how you have 13 weeks until the New Year, where resolutions are made, then usually broken in 6 weeks. I wanted to relay this message to those who I'm in contact with
However you can make the choice right now to finish a goal you set at the beginning of the year, or get a head start on next years. Fat loss? If you lose 2-3 pounds a week for 13 weeks that is 25-40 pounds by the New Year. Strength gain? Get after it and try to see a 5% increase. Get Faster? Find a coach to help you knock off a tenth of a second off of your 40 or 100 meter dash. If you have a HUGE goal that will take time then try and dent into it the next 13 weeks.
If you already know what your going to do for a New Years resolution why not get a head start now? Don't dropped the ball waiting for the ball to drop. Then carry that momentum into the new year.
If you have no idea on what you want as a resolution pick up Goals by Brain Tracy or create a bucket list. See if you can knock off a couple before the end of the year or at least get plans ready.
I recently knocked off one on my list of skydiving. Holy $#*! talk about an adrenaline rush! It's something I would suggest to anyone who doesn't have heart problems. It puts you in an uncomfortable, and very uncontrollable situation. Something that everyone could use in their routined and controlled lives.
Don't use the holidays as an excuse and go get something done!
