A Brad Pitt Lesson on Attacking Your Target

A Brad Pitt Lesson on Attacking Your Target

Attacking Your Target

We all have targets in our lives.  We call them goals, dreams, and aspirations.  Some of us know exactly what we want in fine detail.  Some of us kind of know what we want, but haven’t clarified exactly what it is.

I suggest that you spend some time with a pen and paper or on a word document and figure out your target.  Have fun with it. Choose a target that would transform your life the most.  Everyone will have a different target, so trust that the specific target that you choose is accurate.

Your target can change over time, but for now, choose one that moves you the most.  Commit to a worthy target that stretches you and makes you feel uncomfortable.  Attacking your target is by no means easy, but will make you a better human being for it.

My target is to take daily action on at least one task that is very hard, yet will move my life and business forward most powerfully.  Right now, that is migrating my website from wordpress.com to wordpress.org.  It’s the most uncomfortable thing for me to do today, but long-term, this action will make my life, my client’s lives and my business significantly better.

Target-blocking Obstacles

I believe that most of us want to attain our targets, but so-called obstacles get in the way.  These obstacles are usually fear-based. There could be a fear that the target is unattainable.  Maybe there is a fear that the work may just be too hard and desired results may take too long to achieve.  For some, there may be a fear of putting their reputation on the line, where they might experience failure, which could hurt their ego.

Another obstacle is the desire of clinging to comfort.  Challenging targets require us to grow beyond where we are now, so they are naturally hard and uncomfortable.  It would be like going from a warm, comfy bed with big fluffy pillows to sleeping on the hard floor, pillowless, in a constricting sleeping bag or going from taking hot showers to only cold ones.   We, humans, tend to like it comfortable.

The Ordinary Approach to Attaining a Target

Because of our desire to cling to comfort and run from fear, we usually approach our goals, dreams, and aspirations very slowly.  We talk about them.  Our flights of fancy come and go, imagining what life would be like actually realizing our dream.

There are some of us that actually do something to hit our target.  Of course, we are all different in our approaches, but the majority of us take more time than necessary to attain our goals.  Projects, that if focused on intently could be done in one day, may take an entire week to complete.  Or something, like losing 5kg (10lbs) of fat, that could easily be accomplished in two months, may take us a year or more to achieve.

The Brad Pitt Approach to Attacking a Target

Now we get to the Extraordinary Way to Attaining Targets!  And our spokesman for this way is none other than Brad Pitt, who plays the role of the Hero Achilles in the movie Troy.

This is a scene from the movie Troy which beautifully and succinctly expresses how to fearlessly and immediately attack a target without an ounce of hesitation when we commit to it.

I love this scene because it demonstrates how we can run, full speed ahead toward our fears, minimizing the time and toil between what we are aiming for and the actual achievement of that aim.   Being a hero is hard.  It’s uncomfortable and there is a chance of losing, so it requires ample courage and self-belief.

3 Game-Changing Commitments for Successful Fat-Loss

3 Game-Changing Commitments for Successful Fat-Loss

Commitment vs. Comfort

Most of us are lazy in one or more areas of our lives.  I think we can honestly admit that.  Most of us like it comfortable and cozy all the time.  However, in order to transform your body, you are going to have to get over being lazy, comfortable and cozy.  There is no easy way around this.  If you want to transform your body by losing 5kg, 10kg, or 20kg of fat, you are going to need to get committed to being uncomfortable for a while.

You will need to move more.  You will need to let go of some food addictions.  You will need to prepare your own meals and stop eating food from the convenient store or restaurant.  You will need to get better sleep, which probably means getting to bed earlier.  You will need to experience much more trial and error. You will be uncomfortable.

Commitment is a Decision

I have had the pleasure of seeing clients “Click into Commitment” suddenly after training for over a year.  There is a magical moment when they decide that it’s time to commit not only to training but also to their fat-loss goal, by changing their approach to eating.  That is the moment when they do the work that is required to reach that fat-loss goal and they make it happen.  I am here to put the flame under your butt and say, “Why wait?”  I am here to inspire you to minimize the time it takes you to “Click into Commitment”.  Now is the time to make that decision.

Commitment Needs a Clear Plan

Once you know what your Extraordinary Goal is, you need a daily plan with weekly accountability to make it happen. As a client of LFBX Gym, you have that support.  We have a very detailed questionnaire and process that indicates to us a client’s most limiting factors, so we can craft the most effective fat-loss plan for them.

If you are not a client of LFBX Gym, we offer the highest level of training and diet coaching at our facility in Sugamo, Tokyo.  For those who either live outside of Tokyo or just prefer online coaching, we’ve got you covered as well.  Please see our FAQ here and for further inquiries, send us an email at [email protected]

Commitment Rocks the World

I want you to Rock Your World!!  There is nothing more exhilarating than that.  In order to do so, you will need to get over all shyness, hesitation, inhibition and bullshit.  I have seen this in myself over the years and I see it in my new clients who are cherishing comfort over Extraordinary Transformation.  Playing small is no fun at all.

I understand that we are all humans and we have these inhibitions and fears.  I get it.  Some of us feel bashful to be measured each week, report our daily weight progress to our coaches, or even ask questions that we need clarification on.  I get it.  And I say, “Let em go, people!  GET BOLD!  GET COMMITTED!”  Once you do, you will feel so good about the person you are becoming.   If your Extraordinary Goal is to lose 5kg, you can achieve it within 4 to 6 weeks if you are committed.   If your Extraordinary Goal is to lose 10kg, you can achieve it in approximately 2-3 months max if you commit.  You can do this.  You can completely rock your world with your commitment.

Commitment Approaches – Easy to Hard

I am offering you 3 Bold, Life-Changing Commitments to implement below.  All are effective.  All require you to enter the arena to fight and spend yourself on your worthy cause.   All will allow you to transform your body, your mindset, your health and your confidence for your Next Extraordinary Goal that you will set thereafter.  Here are those 3 commitments in the order of difficulty.

Commitment Level 1 – Make a Commitment in a Supportive Community

At LFBX Gym, we have a community connected by email and by a Facebook Group.  This is a perfect place to make a commitment.  It’s safe, you have fellow comrades in there that have the same or similar goals as you and you have me and Hitomi cheering away for you 24/7.

I recommend the following steps:

  1. Decide the date you are going to reach your Extraordinary Goal.
  2. Find a great photographer and book a photo shoot on the date you are going to reach your Extraordinary Goal.  If you are in Tokyo, I can recommend some top-notch photographers that are reasonably priced.
  3. Buy the outfit you are going to wear for that photo shoot.  One that is too small for you now, but will be perfect when you hit your goal.  Make sure it is something that you absolutely love and excites you to be able to wear.
  4. Make an announcement of your Extaordinary Goal to your community.  In our case, it would be within our private Facebook Group or in our Monthly Newsletter for our clients.
  5. Get to work on achieving your Extraordinary Goal!

Commitment Level 2 – Make a Public Commitment on Social Media

Social Media, is a perfect place to make a bold commitment.  It’s not as safe or comfortable as our LFBX Gym Community, where you have fellow participants with similar goals and a team of coaches constantly cheering for you.  It’s more “Real World” where you might get some negative comments or some kind of sympathetic coddling from friends or family who could say something like, “Oh, you look just fine as you are.  You don’t need to lose weight.”  You may stir up jealousy as well as you start attaining your Extraordinary Goal.

Embrace whatever comes your way and realize that this is all good.  You are not doing this to “get attention” and admirers.  You are doing this to live the best version of you – healthy, strong, self-reliant.   This Social Media Approach is excellent at getting more skin in the game.

I recommend the following steps:

  1. Decide the date you are going to reach your Extraordinary Goal.
  2. Find a great photographer and book a photo shoot on the date you are going to reach your Extraordinary Goal.  If you are in Tokyo, I can recommend some top-notch photographers that are reasonably priced.
  3. Buy the outfit you are going to wear for that photo shoot.  One that is too small for you now, but will be perfect when you hit your goal.  Make sure it is something that you absolutely love and excites you to be able to wear.
  4. Make an announcement of your Extraordinary Goal on the social media of your choice.  I recommend Facebook and/or Instagram.
  5. Get to work on achieving your Extraordinary Goal!

Commitment Level 3 – Make a Commitment that Scares the Crap Out of You

This is what I have done and what I recommend for anyone that is seriously committed to losing unnecessary body fat. This puts you on a stage, under a spotlight in the most uncomfortable situation you can think of in terms of pressure.  It’s good pressure.  It’s not a competition where you have to prove anything to the hundreds of people there.  It is a place where you can be absolutely proud of what you have accomplished.  It is a place where you can celebrate overcoming your laziness and comfort to attain a body that not only serves you but also looks fucking amazing.  

I recommend the following steps:

  1. Decide the date you are going to reach your Extraordinary Goal.
  2. Find a physique contest of some type that you can enter around the time of your Extraordinary Goal.
  3. Get a coach, contact me or another coach that you trust can get you results.  Make sure the coach you hire not only has the knowledge and experience of transforming clients but also has an amazing body and optimum health, right now.  Work with a coach that is an excellent role model of what you are aiming for.
  4. Get to work on the plan that your coach gives you.

Are you Seriously Committed?

Be honest with yourself.  If you are seriously committed, share what you are seriously committed to by commenting below.  If you are an LFBX Gym Client, let’s get on it!  If you are not, and need support, contact us.  We will guide you, step by step to your Extraordinary Goal.

Thank you for reading.

Finding Out What Works For You Can Change Your Life

Finding Out What Works For You Can Change Your Life

“There is only What Works and What Does Not Work, given what it is you are trying to do.”

–Neil Donald Walsh, Conversations with God, Awaken the Species

Waking With the Monks Works for Me

I woke up this morning at 4:30 am, which is the time I have woken up every day for the past two months.   It’s the time I will wake up every morning for the next year or more. Why would I do such a silly thing?  I do this, because I have a very clear picture of who and what I will be three years from now.  I realize that I am able to help all of my training and coaching clients face to face each week -27 amazing clients at the time I am writing this.  I also realize that by increasing my learning while improving my writing and speaking skills, every day for at least the next 3 years, I will be able to help millions of people.  That works for me.

Writing First Thing in the Morning Works for Me

It’s Tuesday and it’s my day off each week.  I know that I could sleep in, but I choose not to. Writing every day for two hours first thing in the morning, between 4:45 am and 6:45 am, excites me.  It’s pitch black outside.  It’s absolutely silent and it’s just me in front of my Mac with a topic like this, thinking and writing about useful things that I understand or am leaning about that could help people experience a higher quality of life.  Every morning I aim to finish a blog and publish it.  If I don’t complete it with the first two hours, I aim to publish it by the end of the day.  This fills me up; it works for me.

Working Long Hours Works for Me

Some of my close friends say that I work too much – too many hours each day.  They say that I need to enjoy life a little more.  I understand where they are coming from and sometimes agree.  I also realize that what I am doing with my work really excites me and uplifts me.  Yes, I may work a lot, but that work is very fulfilling to me, so I feel that I am enjoying it.  I also feel that I am creating something that extends beyond me, which will increase the enjoyment, excitement, and upliftment for all involved.  So if I look at the number of hours I work each day and the number of days I work per year,  yeah, I may be working a lot, but that work truly works for me.

Reading Two Hours Per Day Works for Me

As I kid, I hated reading.  In high school is when I had to plan and read full books like “The Catcher in the Rye” and “Huckleberry Finn”.  I don’t believe I finished either one of those books/assignments.  I don’t know why, but I just couldn’t get into them.  Now I read at least two hours every day.  The more I read, especially on topics such as mindset, health, fitness, lifestyle, the more educated I become and the more I am able to share with my clients, customers, and readers.  I love it and it definitely works for me.

30 Minutes of Daily Training Works for Me

I own a gym and there have been times that I didn’t train much at all because I didn’t have my work-life balance in order and felt completely burned out.  Recently I train 6 days a week for about 30 minutes.  I love this.  It gives me a break from mental work, gets me out of my physical comfort zone by testing my strength, speed or endurance.  It’s a very simple approach that looks something like this:

  • Wednesday: Heavy Deadlifts
  • Thursday:  Light Mobility work & stretching
  • Friday: Full body Muscular Endurance Training (lighter weights mixed w/a bit of cardio in between)
  • Saturday: Heavy Upper Body Work like L-Sit Holds and Heavy Cable Pullovers
  • Sunday: Light Mobility work & Stretching
  • Monday: Full-Out Hill Sprints (10 seconds full out with 90 seconds walk back recovery x 8 rounds)
  • Tuesday: Our day off where we usually go for an extended walk of 90 minutes or more for fun

This type of balanced training plan makes me feel good, look good and doesn’t require too much time; it works for me.

Eating on the Floor Works for Me

Although 4-9 hours of my workday is training clients, I spend a great deal of time sitting on a chair in front of my computer working.  The more I sit in a chair, the tighter I feel my body getting, so I decided that for the next 6 months or so, I would eat all of my meals at home sitting crossed-legged in the middle of the floor or on our 8F deck that overlooks Tokyo.   No leaning on anything allowed:-) Sometimes it’s uncomfortable, but I feel it working for me in that my lower back, hips, and hip flexors are loosening up.

Going to Bed at 8:30 pm Works for Me

I have a sweet feeling of being an 8-year old again, hearing my Mom saying, “Honey, it’s 8:30! Time for bed.”  40-years later, I am back to the same bedtime schedule:-) In order for me to sleep around 8 hours, and wake up by 4:30 am, that means 8:30 pm is my time for bed.  Cute, right?  Some nights I don’t get to bed until 9:30 pm, but many nights I am in bed by 8:30 pm and sleeping soundly within 3-seconds.   It’s definitely not ordinary, but I am loving the deep, restful sleep that I am enjoying and finding that I am waking naturally between 3:50-4:20 am, well before my alarm rings at 4:30 am.  7-8 hours of sleep works nicely for me.

The Carnivore Diet Works for Me

I have been doing the Carnivore Diet and I’m finding that it is working for me better than any other approach to diet so far.  The digestive issues such as gas and bloating that have bothered me my entire life, are gone.  I only need to eat twice per day, around 10:30 am and 4:00 pm and have no desire for snacking whatsoever.  My addiction to certain foods, cravings for sweets, and my predilection to overeat, have all disappeared.  This fascinates me.  If you want to know more about this diet, check out my previous post on it.

A Few Notes on What Doesn’t Work for Me

Finding what doesn’t work, through a great deal of trial and error, has helped me find what does work. I would like to share a few things that have guided me along the way.

Unkindness Doesn’t Work for Me

Grudges, expectations, jealousy, competition, trying to prove myself and lack of compassion have been issues that I have been struggling with my entire life.  These are parts of myself that I don’t show most people but have clearly been a part of me and obviously don’t work.  I am learning to let them arise as they always have and immediately find what it is in me that is causing it, not the action or the inaction of the other person or people involved.  I then find what is it that I can resolve within myself to solve the issue.  Taking 100% responsibility and being decisive in how I am going to resolve the situation is working for me.

A Raw Food Vegan Diet Doesn’t Work for Me

Recently I did a “Raw Fruit & Veggie Diet” based on a protocol from Dr. Robert Morse for 90 days from April to July 2019 in order to heal my body. So from 4.11.2019, I embarked on an all raw fruit & veggie diet omitting all other foods and drinks except for water.  I started out at 77.6kg (171lbs), worked through a week of withdrawals from caffeine and was on my way finally reaching a body weight of 65kg (143kg) at the 90-day mark.  Some stretches of days I ate only grapes and I really enjoyed that.

Biggest issues with this Diet:

  • I constantly felt chilled to the bone – the only time I could heat my body up enough to sweat was when I got in a 48-degree Celsius bath (118 degrees F)
  • I was hungry every 2-3 hours
  • I felt addicted to dried fruits such as dates and figs and sometimes couldn’t stop eating them
  • I completely lost my sex drive for three-plus months-  my wife was not happy about that:-)
  • I lost over 5kg (10lbs) of lean muscle mass
  • I completely lost my desire to train-exercise

I’m not attacking this raw food vegan approach, as my wife eats about 60% raw food, especially fruits and she looks and feels great.  She can do 4+ chin-ups, has a six-pack and works from morning to night with me, so it’s working for her.

Watching TV Doesn’t Work for Me

I think there are many great things on TV, Netflix or Amazon Prime and I will watch a movie with my wife 2-4 times a month and I really enjoy them.  Daily viewing just doesn’t float my boat, so I don’t do it.

Please Take Inventory and Find Out What Works for You

I wanted to share my experience with you, in hopes that it might inspire you to take a deeper look at things you are doing that may not be working for you.

I realize that most of my clients don’t go to bed until 1:00 am.  Then they get up around 7:00 am, so they are getting 6 hours of sleep.  Is this you?  If it is, do you feel like you are functioning at a high level?  Are you making healthy food choices?  Are you reaching for coffee first thing in the morning and some carby-starchy-sugary food to start your day?  Is this working for you?  If it it, AWESOME!!  If not, please take a look at things that you can do that work, given what you are trying to do.

Please take a deep look at aspects that you feel aren’t working for you in your life.  Ask me for help if you need it.  I will help you the best I can.

Thanks for reading.

LFBX Superhero-7 HIIT Bodyweight Circuit

LFBX Superhero-7 HIIT Bodyweight Circuit

The Superhero

I have the privilege of working with Chris Lee to help him transform his body and mind into the true superhero that he is.

We are using several movements that Chris requested from his boy, Thor Himself, Chris Hemsworth.

This is a very high-intensity interval training program with a focus on bodyweight movements.

The Movements

There are 7 movements:

  1. Walking Switchbacks
  2. Deep Squats with a Twist
  3. Bear Crawls
  4. Reverse Lunges with a Forward Knee Kick
  5. Gorillas
  6. Hanging Straight Leg Raises
  7. Athletic-Stance Medicine Ball Wall Dribble

The Interval & Timing System We Use

The interval between movements:

20 seconds of work/5 seconds of rest for a total of 2:55 minutes per round.  I am using the Bit Timer app, because it’s quick, simple and effective.

 

The Number of Rounds Performed in One Training Session

We focus on completing 7 rounds per session.  On days that takes him longer to recover between sets, we may only get in 6 rounds max.

The Intensity – 80-100% Max Heart Rate Focus

This is very high-intensity work, so we are aiming for 80-100% max heart rate on this LFBX Superhero Circuit.  A simple formula to obtain this is 220 – age and Chris is 26 years old, so that equals 193 bpm (beats per minute).  So we want to aim for a max range of about 193 and at the very least 154 bpm, as that is 80% of 193.

The Rest – 60% Heart Rate = Start the Next Round

Now, for the rest period.  We will not start the next round until his heart rate drops to 125 bpm (beat per minute), as that is 60% of his max heart rate and that gives him just enough recovery to be able to give his all to the next round.  I love this rest interval because it is smart and honest.  I highly recommend that for really hard interval training like this, you use this system.  Get your heart down to about 60% of your Max before starting the next round. 

*Since Chris is a True Superhero, his heart rate sometimes goes to 195, which is 101%:-) This is true, so just be aware that the 220 – age formula doesn’t always apply to superheroes

A Note on Recovery

When Chris’ sleep and recovery is on point, sometimes he recovers within 2:00 between sets.  On days where he’s off, he may require 4:00-6:00 for his heart rate to drop to 125 bpm (60% of his max heart rate).

The Chart We Use to Track Progress

We use this simple excel chart to track progress for each session.  HR = Heart Rate.  We are aiming for 80-100% effort, so his target heart rate ranges from 156-194 beats per minute.  The Seven Exercises are printed in the order we perform them and all the results are logged.  

The Gear I use to Track Heart Rate

I use a Polar FT7 which comes with a chest strap, which is about 10 years old.  My wrist is 48 years old at the time of this photo.

Here is a new Polar H10 at Amazon USA.  The Polar H10 is just a heart rate monitor that connects with your smartwatch or smartphone.  It’s about half the price of the model I am using above, so I recommend you buy the H10.  My old FT7 is still working, that’s why I’m still using it.  Here is a review of the best 7 chest strap heart rate monitors for your information.

If you want to know more about how I use my Heart rate monitor for Sprint Training, which is an absolute game-changer for health, see this previous post.  I also do a brief comparison of how I use my Apple Watch vs my Polar FT7 here in this post.

Measurable Results with LFBX-7 HIIT 

Here is an accountability form I use for all clients to show their attendance and any goals they may have to keep in mind each time we meet.  I recommend that clients get their waists measured each time they come in for training because sometimes there may be no weight lost, since there is muscle gained, so the waist shows clearly that fat is coming of the midsection.  Look at the fat that came off of Chris’ midsection between 5.1.2019-8.3.2019 below.  9.5cm of fat loss off the waist!

Other Things that Chris Is Doing to Achieve His Superhero Transformation

It is important to know that Chris has dialed in his diet to match his tastes and what his body can handle.  We have found out through trial and error, that even with very little starch (wheat, corn and rice), he gains fat very easily.  So we have learned to eschew anything that resembles starch in his diet, He is incorporating a 24-hour water fast once per week and also a Low Carb, High Fat (LCHF) Eating approach to accomplish this, mainly eating Big Green Salads, Meat, Fish and EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil).  If you want to know more about how to do 24-hour fasting, see my post here.

Do You Want to Join the Ranks of Superheroes?

If you do and have a few months or more of solid training under your belt, give this a shot.  It works!  Here is a video of Round One of Seven.  Enjoy!

Goals – You SAY you want it, but do you REALLY want it?

Goals – You SAY you want it, but do you REALLY want it?

He SAYS He Wants Big Shoulders and a Six-Pack

More and more opportunities are coming our way these days.  One of them is an increase in trial sessions at LFBX Gym.  When people come into our gym for the first time, my wife Hitomi and I like to give them a very warm welcome, by both greeting them.  A young man came in for a trial session, saying that he was interested in private training. He stated that he wanted to achieve specific physique goals, especially broader more muscular shoulders, and a six-pack.

But He REALLY Wants a Lackluster, Comfortable Approach

At the end of the trial session, we asked him which direction he would like to go in terms of training with us.  He said that he wanted to train with me to achieve his goals, but finances were an issue.  He said he would love to train with me once per week but was thinking of having a private session with me once per month and then having me create a monthly training program that he could do on his own instead.

Make What You SAY You Want, What You REALLY You Want!

Hitomi, without an ounce of hesitation, made a very poignant point to him about commitment.  She expressed persuasively, “Are you satisfied with the results that you have achieved so far on your own?”  He replied by saying, “No, I’m not.”  Then she followed with something very consequential for him to ponder: “What if you committed completely to your goals and to Bodhi’s coaching and programing once per week for 12-weeks?  If you commit fully to yourself and to Bodhi’s know-how and guidance, you can transform your body and your entire life in 12-weeks.  Of course, it will cost you more money than if you have Bodhi coach you once a month, but by committing this way, you will have undeniable results and enough momentum to continue training on your own without Bodhi’s guidance (if you decide it and commit to it).  If you go “the safe and slow route”, you will probably spend the same amount of money and you may get the same results in 12 months that you could have had within 3 months.  And the probability of more bumps along the way is high because you will only get face to face feedback from Bodhi every 30 days rather than every 7 regarding your training form, training progress, adherence and accountability to your diet – which is crucial to getting that six-pack you say you desire.  Also, the inner motivation you get from seeing your progress in the mirror and the social motivation you get from peers when they tell you about the transformation they are seeing will inspire you to keep your consistency and intensity at an extraordinary level.

The quicker you get committed and into fierce action on that commitment, the quicker the results you will see and feel yourself, and hear from those around you in the form of surprise and compliments, which will boost your motivation and drive immensely.”

100% Committed

You Have to Want to Overcome the Part of You that REALLY Wants Comfort

I was in awe of Hitomi’s powerful quake statement.  She confirmed that pussyfooting shows a lack of grit, which equals a lack of results.  She expressed the importance of doing what is uncomfortable in the pursuit of overcoming a part of yourself that you haven’t achieved yet, which in the case of our potential client seemed to be the financial commitment, time commitment and the weekly accountability.  The young man and I both knew that she was right and shook our heads in agreement with her.  Ultimately he decided not to train with us, but I believe Hitomi gave him a gem of understanding that may help him immensely.  I definitely learned something from Hitomi’s quake statement about commitment and taking fierce action now to achieve our goals and dreams.

What I REALLY Want for My Clients

First, when I have a trial session, I am committed to setting up that client for achieving their goal by or before their ideal timeframe for achieving it.  Showing them, as Hitomi so clearly illustrated for this young man and me, a brilliant strategy of overcoming their top obstacles that stand in the way of where they are on the day of their trial session to the day that their ideal goal timeline transformed self exists.

What I REALLY Want for Myself

Second, I have started using this in my own life with the #1 Project that I am focusing on achieving by the deadline I have set.  I have spent ample time making sure that I really want to achieve this goal.  It’s a 3-Year Goal, so it’s very big and will require several thousands of hours of deliberate focus, which I am very excited about. In order to break down this project into mileposts,  I have applied a model called Goal Setting to the Now which I learned from Gary Keller in his book The One Thing. Basically, I decided my 3-Year Goal (he uses 5-year goals in the book, but 3-years felt like a better fit for me), then set my 1-Year Goals based on my 3-Year Goal, then my Quarterly Goals based on my 1-Year, then Monthly Goals with stretch deadlines based on my Quarterly, then Weekly Goal (meaning this week only, so that I set deadlines only for the week ahead), then a Daily Protocol that I commit to every day that I am working.  This is proving very effective.

What Do You REALLY Want?

Do you have a goal or a dream that you have been entertaining in your head for some time?  Or even something you have been dabbling in, but just haven’t kicked up your commitment on?  I hear people say they want an amazing partner.  I hear others say they want to lose 5kg of fat.  And I hear others say that they want to earn more money.  And the reason most of these people don’t achieve their dreams is that they don’t have a strategic plan.  All of these dreams can be achieved in direct proportion to the focus and action that we take in the direction of achieving them. Please take the time and put together a strategic plan on how to achieve what you REALLY want in life.  In my experience, we can transform an aspect of our life within 1-3 months when we commit fully to it.  If you think you REALLY want to achieve something, first find out if you REALLY want it.  Once you know that you REALLY want it, the next step is to overcome the obstacles in the way.  If this interests you, let me know and I will share my take on how to approach and overcome obstacles.

If you have any comments or questions whatsoever, please leave them below.
