A new year, and time for new goals. I’m not 100% what my goals for the whole YEAR will be, but I can show you my current January 2011 goals which sit on my desk:
Something I’ve found VERY interesting is the amount of time it takes to form a habit is NOT one month.
This means all my goals or experiments which I try for one month generally don’t stick. During my six-pack experiment I realized one month was great, but I should keep eating well for at least 3 or 4 months. When it was officially over, I have since kept up that eating habit as a LIFESTYLE instead of a temporary diet. Even through holiday seasons such as Thanksgiving and Christmas and New Year I still ate extraordinarily well (seriously, call Adam at MyBodyTutor if you’re serious about implementing this change). This was because of the sheer length of time I implemented the “experiment”.
So my first goal this month is great HouseOfRave.com customer service with a focus on further reducing it (I reduced it by over 50% last month..DURING THE FREAKIN HOLIDAY SHOPPING RUSH)!
…even on my December 2010 goals this customer service goal was a major component. I’ve seen the great results from it, so I want this to become a habit and focus, and therefore I plan to have this goal around for about 3 months.
The next two I can’t openly discuss on this blog. Well…I CAN…but I don’t want to, even though it’s really interesting :-)
