Want to accomplish your goal? Make it public.
I’m getting a little tired of these end-of-year lists.
It looks like around the New Year, every fitness pro out there puts together a list of what I’ve learned this year in a punchy list format.
Which is just swell. Really. I think sharing some insights about the previous year and seeing what we can take away and apply going forward is a neat idea. Evidently, so does every other fitness blogger on the net.
On the other hand, the more I think about it, the less inclined I am to follow suit—there’s a kitschy sort of sweetness in reminiscing in the form of a countdown, but I’m more interested in looking forward.
So I’m sharing what I’m going to do next year.
And I’ve broken it up by category, because, jeepers I sure do love categories.
-Make sure Final Phase Fat Loss becomes the new standard in fat loss programs.
-Attend at least 5 seminars this year, continuing to learn how to build and improve my business.
-Help one of my up-and-coming models/actors become famous enough to have an entourage.
-Upon the recommendation of my hetero-life-mate Rob, I will actually sit down and catch up with some of the more major comic book story arcs.
-Get published in at least three major print fitness magazines.
-Put together the proposal for my print book before summer’s end.
-Maintain 6% bodyfat or below for the entirety of 2010. Screw this up and down crap.
-Pack on enough mass to add 1 inch to my legs.
-Become proficient at muscle-ups.
-Become conversationally proficient in one new language.
-Start a trend: pocket-watches. Get in on the ground floor, this is gonna be big.
-Make it out to Vegas and enter a small event in the World Series of Poker.
To be clear… this isn’t a list of “potential” goals—this is shit I will do. Remember that being publicly accountable for your goals is the best way to ensure you follow through with them. I’m going to be dominating next year in every way possible… and I’d like you to come along for the ride.
