Knowing what you want and publicly committing to it, then take daily action

Goals

In my constant work to improve, I thirst for knowledge. Where I often lack ambition is in the doing. I recently started working through a goals planning program. Once the dreaming, distilling and discovering why is done, the program is 12 weeks of daily work on just four specific goals. Yes, just four.

When the talent is there to increase the quantity then it’s okay to do more. But of far more importance is creating a program that I will be committed to every day. One in which each goal is specific, big enough to be hard to obtain but grounded in a monumental importance to me. Otherwise I won’t act and I won’t be disciplined. The program says most fail in the third week. This is not easy for me to do but I am making a public commitment that I will not fail completing this program.

By the end of this week, Sunday May 24th I will have worked through and established my four goals. Then the actual work begins. Honestly there is a sense of relief that I have stated I will do this, there is a plan to work through and I need only to do something each day towards each of four goals. Everything else will fall into place.

It feels good. Pick something you know you want to do, that’s important to you and then chip away at it daily for just 12 weeks and see what kind of progress you make. I will update mine in this forum.

Finally…I get to play golf again

After more than a year with tears in both rotator cuffs and other shoulder issues I can finally play golf again. This really speaks to a commitment to physical therapy. I was mostly good at doing it regularly. 🙂 I have also now been able to start working out with weights in a more serious manner to get some strength back.

Today I am play the first round on an 18 hole course in well over a year. CordeValle in San Martin hosted the Frys.com PGA event for a number of years. I volunteered as a marshall at that event for two years. This is a fabulous Robert Trent Jones Jr. PGA level course and the round is to benefit the CordeValle Youth Golf Foundation.

So, thanks for reading my totally selfish post. It feels good to have life start to open up again.
