2 Months Down. Where Are You At?

It's February and we are almost 2 months into the New Year. January always rolls out slowly and before you know it, February is almost over. What happened to those January resolutions? You know - to start working out regularly, eating healthier and generally getting our shizz together.

Alywn Cosgrove said this "We don't know how long we've got, so don't put things off.  It's not just about looking better, it's about feeling better and being able to do things.  If you knew you only had 10 years left, what would you do with it? And how do you know you don't?"

Let's go back to our resolutions and goals for the New Year. How are you doing? Are you successful or did your motivation falter because you had too many things on your list? Did you know if you commit to one change you have an 85% chance of success. If you commit to making 2 changes, that drops to 35% and if you add a third change that drops to almost no chance of success.

Well, what does that mean? Does that mean I can't make more than one change at a time? Not really. To be successful you work on one thing at a time. Once you are successful, then you move on to the next. That might mean you have small changes that you can adhere to within a week or two weeks. If you have a major change to make, well that might take a month to get it to stick. Sometimes you need more time or you need less. The key to making a successful change is to concentrate on one thing at a time and by the end of 6 months or a year you could have a slew of changes under your belt.

Make a plan with small, incremental manageable parts. Be flexible to allow for change to happen but stay on point. Determination and motivation will get you to your goal. And don't forget to have fun along the way.
