Goals, motivation, goals, motivation…. blah!

I don’t like New Year’s Resolutions, but I do think the beginning of the year is a convenient time to set some goals that we should strive to accomplish within this manmade calendar window of 12 months. I put out a shortlist a few days ago that encapsulates my main thoughts for 2015. Those are my key drivers, but there are a few other things on my mind.

That said… “goal without a plan is just a wish” – is a true statement. It’s not just the “goal” that we need it’s the plan to achieve the goal. Underpinning all of it is the most critical element, the motivation. “Why” do you want to do something? Without a “why” there is little to no chance to succeed.

I have so many things on my mind. Career goals. Family goals. Financial goals. Workout/Fitness goals. And I am having a hard time pinning down concise, actionable goals. I’m also having a hard time pinning down my motivation in each area that I am interested in pursuing.

The fitness related goals are myriad. I want abs. Defined abs. I’ve never had them. Even when I was really skinny (6’2″ 150#’s) I didn’t have them. I want consecutive muscle ups. I want…..

OK. Time to cut the BS and hit the honesty.

I want to be a mother fucking badass.

Not that I have a clue what that means. I just know that’s what I want above any other fitness, financial or career goal.

Is it concise? No
Is it actionable? No.
Is it even measurable? No.
Am I so insecure that I won’t even know it if it happens? Ummmm, hell yes.

So I’m kind of stuck here in a rut of my own making.

Anyone else floundering a bit?
