It has been a wild ride here at The Next Goal. Since we launched the site a couple of months ago, it has been a never-ending series of goals and challenges. Have you been playing along at home? Have you set some goals for yourself?
I’m sure many of you have wanted to join in on the fun, but for some reason you didn’t. Maybe you don’t have the free time or are afraid of failing. It is important to all of us that EVERYONE has a chance to reach their next goal, so I’ve put together a list to help you out. I’ve created a few sample goals to get you started on your journey.
New Years Resolutions
Get a jump on 2012 by coming up with a few resolutions now. Just write them down somewhere and worry about it in January. One great resolution is to try and work on procrastination. Make that priority #1 once 2012 gets here.
Gain 3 Pounds
These days, it seems like everyone is trying to lose 10 pounds via some crazy diet or exercise program. Why not zig when everyone else zags? Set a goal to GAIN 3 pounds by the end of the year. By adding a donut and softdrink to your daily breakfast routine, you can be on the road to a new pants size in no time at all. Of course, you should always check with your doctor before starting any diet or exercise program.
Add Some TV
Take a few minutes to add a new show to your Tivo or DVR. It doesn’t matter if you choose a comedy or a drama. The important part is that you spend an extra 30-60 minutes each day in front of the TV.
We all love to hit the snooze button in the morning, so why limit yourself. Try setting the alarm 10-15 minutes earlier so you can hit snooze and extra couple of times. The extra arm movement can actually help to slowly build up your muscles – although I can’t prove that medically.
Foreign Language Programs
Want to put an international twist on your goal setting? Buy yourself one of the many “Learn A New Language” programs. It is not necessary to listen to the CDs – our goal is to purchase the program. The first step is always the hardest, so our goal is to simply do the first step.
Hopefully this list will get your mind going and you can come up with some more goals for the under-achiever. If so, I hope you will share them below. We can ALL use an easy goal every now and then.
