Why wait until New Year's Eve to decide what your 2013 focus will be? Some people call them resolutions, others say it is a promise of what is to come, still others call it intention. I think the tradition can be thought of as focus. What will you focus on? What will you deem as important enough to capture your ongoing attention and follow-up?
You know, we accomplish what we focus on. So, take a few moments to declare, to yourself and/or to others, what is important to you. If you make your focus public, then others can help you achieve your destination.
My 2013 resolution/intention/focus is to become a healthier lower weight by 20% of my current self. In support of being public with my focus, I have declared January 2 (the day we go back to work) as the beginning of the 2013 Healthy Journey Biggest Loser contest. Everyone on the HR team (where I work) was invited to participate. So, far, we have 17 people who want to join. We are running the contest through February. I intend to win! We are going to capture (weekly) each person's percentage of weight loss. I will share my progress with you.
So, for now, I wish you a very merry Christmas, however you celebrate! Relax, enjoy, wallow a little and have fun!
Desire to relax, enjoy and wallow. Dedication toshare the contest with co-workers and friends. Discipline to report and share.
