At the beginning of 2019, I followed Tim Ferris' advice from his book the 4 Hour work week. Some of the goals I wanted to achieve were; run a 1/2 marathon, travel more, and read one book a month. After writing my goals on January 1st. I determined 3 steps to achieve each goal.
Running a 1/2 marathon
1. Choose a race
2. Sign up for race
3. Make a training plan
1. Select a location
2. Plan time of travel
3. Use Hopper to find the best prices for flights
Reading 1 book per month
1. Pick an unread book off your bookshelf to read
2. Created a book log to help me stay on track
3. Write read on my to-do list so I didn't forget
At the end of 2019, I accomplished about 70% of my goals!
I ran TWO 1/2 marathons, traveled to 3 countries, and 4 states
and read 12 books!
Something I learned was to stop talking about my "wants" and to start making steps and to go after them. Life moves fast, and you don't want to look back and think "I wish I would have...". I hope you start the year off on the right foot but remember you can set new goals anytime! Use the steps above to achieve your dreams!
If you want to start reading more use the tracker I created to stay focused. It's a good visual representation when you fall off track and see a page full of blank lines, you know it's time to pick up a book. Click on the book tracker below for a printable pdf.
