In the last 90 days, I have challenged myself to pay close attention to my goals on a daily basis. I have always been very goal-oriented, but have generally set longer term goals, without also identifying daily and weekly action steps. Keeping those items in mind has helped me accomplish goals even more efficiently. I have found that I am able to accomplish more of my personal goals because I am more focused on how I spend my time outside of work. Specifically, I am finding more time to spend with my family while also getting more done. The purposeful goal-setting framework that includes spiritual, family-oriented, and relationship goals in addition to physical, financial and business goals, has added a new dimension to my personal discipline.
I would inspire my 15-year-old son to experience the benefits of the Challenge. My son is an athlete, but he also has some hereditary health challenges. He is a mentally tough, hard working teenager. I believe he would thrive in the Challenge and would be thrilled with his accomplishments. He and I would help each other succeed by ensuring that we make it to the workouts and use periscope when out of town. We would also help each other make good food choices. Most importantly, we would encourage each other when facing obstacles and we would celebrate each other’s successes.
