Dream Big. Start Small.

Last week’s blog post talked about a way to be more successful at setting goals. Once you’ve set your initial goal, it’s easy to lose focus. Life gets in the way. Shiny objects pop up. You chase other more attractive options. So how do you increase your chances of sticking with it?

 

Dream big and start small.

 

Start by coming up with a really big dream for your health and wellbeing. Make it something that you’ll work towards over the next year. Think big. Pie in the sky goals. And decide on a semi-unachievable goal. It should be something that is possible to achieve if the stars align.

 

If your goal is impossible then you’re doing this step wrong. For example, you can set a goal to be taller, however, that’s not possible if you’re fully grown. Or if you want longer legs. Or a thinner wrist. There’s factors you can’t control or change. The goal is to make you stretch outside of your comfort zone, not to set you...

What's Your End Game?

Ever wish you could be one of those people that follow through on New Years Resolutions? They make it look so easy. And yet, without fail, you seem to fizzle out by mid-February. It’s hard not to get discouraged and give up before you have a chance to see results.

 

What if there was a better way?? (Isn’t that how most products on the shopping channel start?) Many people set New Years Resolutions without working through how they will execute their goals.

 

If you fail to plan then you’re planning to fail.

 

Coming up with a concrete plan may not solve your execution issue. You may have the best-laid plans for how to accomplish your goal. If you lack the motivation to do it, it likely won’t get done. Sooo, now what?

 

Let’s reverse engineer how to make New Years Resolutions that stick. We’ll start with an example from my life. I am the Queen of coming up with big lofty goals. That’s the easy part. I’m a big dreamer.

What's Involved in Designing a Course? (Read the blog post before watching the video!)

 

This isn't my typical blog post. Many of you have been asking about my online courses so I thought I'd share all the details with you. It's almost ready! The new and updated version of my online course is almost available. Stay tuned for details about the launch- they will be released soooooooon!

Until then, I've had several questions about what's involved in creating a course. It sounds easy and straightforward, right? Except that there's a ton of work that goes on behind the scenes. I've ran three previous online courses and have received invaluable feedback on what you found useful and what was too much information.

My courses have made some significant pivots based on your feedback, which essentially meant that this time I almost had to start from scratch.

I started by designing a curriculum so that I knew what to include and what to leave out. For me, that type of work is dry and boring. (Bless your heart if you love it!) I literally wanted to give up because it...

What Are the Best Productivity Tools For Entrepreneurs?

Entrepreneurs have their plates full. They have to be all things to all people, especially in the start-up phase of their business. I get it. I’m on my third business and know how important productivity is. If you can get more done with less time, you’ll be more successful. It’s as simple as that.

The best productivity tool is the one that you actually use.

There’s plenty of tools, apps, and resources out there to help you be more productive. Ones that help you manage your time, finances and to do list. There’s tools to help you eat better, get your workouts in and sleep better. There are even apps that help you to manage your apps.

I love productivity tools. But here’s the thing about them. You have to use them in order for them to work. The best productivity tool is the one that you actually use. That tool could be as simple as a notepad. Or it could be as complex as an expensive, highly integrated software program.

Dedicate your time to...

Three Easy Ways to Ward Off Depression After Athletics End

Athletic careers can end due to illness or injury. This sudden change often turns into a downward spiral in health. Pain leads to inactivity, with weight gain quickly following. Depression is a common symptom in this negative spiral, leading to more pain and illness. You are not alone in this situation and there are many things you can do to help yourself.

Change up your exercise

There are very few conditions that prevent you from doing every single exercise. There are thousands of different exercises to choose from. You’ve got almost no excuse for not doing something to keep you active. In initial phases of illness or injury, it might be more important to focus on rest. At some point, you’ll need to focus on activity again. The biggest mistake I’ve seen athletes make is to stop doing exercise altogether. Exercise is your stress relief, your pleasure, and your passion. Cutting it out completely has a huge negative impact on your mental health. Focus...

Get Real With Your Goals For Better Results

We all have goals of accomplishing things over our lifetime. Some of them are small. Some of them are big. Some are even bigger than you realize. Like writing a book- so I’ve come to learn.

Anyone who knows me well will know that I’ve been talking about writing a book for a really long time. Like, 10 years long. It’s finally coming together and I’m gearing up for my launch on September 19, 2017.  I really thought all the hard work was over once I had finished the editing process. I had no idea that there was so much involved in coming up with a cover design, marketing material and developing a launch strategy. I didn’t realize how much work it is to promote your own book, because that’s what you’ve got to do if you want it to sell.

But this post isn’t about me writing a book or going over all the things I need to do before September to make it a success. It’s about setting realistic expectations.  How many...
