I started this weekly series a few months back, with the intention of motivating myself and others. The purpose was to have that One Big Goal in mind and chip away at all the necessary steps in reaching that Goal, while maintaining the other “necessities of life.” Commit to 3, i.e. baby steps.
Well, I’ve been slacking in the commitment department, at least in the posting and focusing of those commitments. I apologize if I let my readers down. Going forward, my promise to you (and myself) is to post my Top 3 Commitments each Monday. You can help me, by posting your goals, too. And if you don’t see the “Commit to 3” post every Monday(by dinner time), I give you permission to email me and ask “What’s up, Mary Jo? What are you committing to this week?!” mjcwriter”at”comcast”dot”com
So, from my list, I’m going to choose only 3 items that MUST be completed this week. I challenge you to do the same! Oh, and don’t forget your “Salary.”
*BONUS CHALLENGE: Make 2 of the 3 goals for YOU only(not your kids, spouse, friends, etc.)
This week I commit to 3:
- Bake cookies for teachers of KidsClub (deliver Wednesday)
- Complete Exercises from Ch 1 of Beginnings, Middles & Ends by Nancy Kress (use as Reader Wednesdays post in the future.)
- Phone call with (possible) new personal trainer – learn about her plan and rates – make decision (excited, scared!)
Salary: 2 hrs of uninterrupted reading time on Sunday (to catch up on FREE ebooks & workbooks by Jonathon Mead)
As you’re creating your Commit to 3 list, keep this in mind:
“One hour per day of study will put you at the top of your field within three years. Within five years you’ll be a national authority. In seven years, you can be one of the best people in the world at what you do.”
1921-1989, Author and Speaker
So, how are you pushing yourself towards your goals? Make your list, commit to it, post it in the comments so we can keep each other accountable! Go!
