Success Saturday: The Plan
While working out this morning (yes, I am strategically leading with that tidbit since today is Day 5 of the new workout plan implementation), I saw a segment on ABC News in which watchers describe their week in 3 words or less. What an excellent way to employ interactivity—even if John Smith’s exclamation, “made shit happen”, is not my business. Check it out:
If I were to describe my week in three words, they would be “I will succeed.” Maybe it is all of Obama’s rhetoric for change, but I’ve been inspired! 2010 will be a year of change and success. Okay, so it is about three months too late for 2010 New Year’s Resolutions—I’ve been busy, OK! I was promoted to “e-Business Programs Lead”. Cha-ching! I have lost weight. Oh yeah! My blog readers doubled to almost triple digits. Phew! Besides, better late than never as they say…
According to Benjamin Franklin: “Think of these things, whence you came, where you are going, and to whom you must account.” So for me to plan for change and success in the rest of 2010, I need to figure out what I’ve already done. Last year, I learned to juggle my career with my extracurricular activities. Yes, ‘activities’ is code for drinking at the bar with friends too late and too often. But in January, I quit drinking and smoking for 6 weeks. No support from Obama on that one. Maybe he should follow my lead. In February, I began working out, albeit for two weeks, but going strong again this month. And in March, I launched my blog. I am incredibly grateful for the aforementioned success I have reaped from those efforts, but what’s next?
One of the keys to success is preparation so I’ve decided to plan the next 3 months worth of goals. In April, I will have fully incorporated yoga and running into my workout plan. In May, I will be fully involved with a non-profit. In June, the month of my birthday I might add, I will have learned and be fully excelling at my new responsibilities compulsory to my promoted position. 3 months. 3 words. I will succeed… I will succeed… I will succeed…
I have prepared a plan for my readers, too. The days of the week, moving forward, will cover enriching topics as shown below:
Success Saturday: Week in Review
Success Sunday: Week in View
Leave a comment because I’d love to hear about your goals. What would your three words be for the week? What do you want to accomplish this month and next?
It is March 6th, 2010. Go! March forth! Plan for your success in 2010!
