Words to live by, to be true.

In the past few days, I’ve come across several conversations related to patience and delayed gratification.

And as runners, we tend to suck in this area.

Letting Go of My Goal to Post Daily in 2015:A Failed Resolution

At the beginning of the year, I set a goal/New Year’s Resolution of posting new content on the site every day in 2015.

I knew at the time that perfection would be difficult, but I figured I’d do my best and hopefully only miss a handful of days.

So far in 2015, I believe I’ve only missed 5 days of posting. And if I’m honest, I’d have to say that I’m pretty happy with my consistency and I feel like I’m on the toward making this particular resolution a success.

Except for the fact that I’m purposefully breaking the resolution and letting go my goal.

Making resolutions/goals in the first week of January is one thing, but looking back on them multiple times throughout the year, gauging progress, and adjusting as necessary is extremely important.

So how am I doing on my goals for 2015? Let’s take a look at where I stand at the halfway point of 2015.

Having to Reset Your Goals Doesn’t Mean that You’ve Failed

As January is drawing to a close, how are you doing with your 2015 resolutions?

I’ve been talking a lot about setting goals for the year in the past few weeks and I’ve been trying to give you some tips that will help you be successful. Remember that eating an elephant isn’t impossible if you cut it into bite-sized pieces, and you don’t need to be perfect to be successful either.

Struggling with your goals? Press the button, reset your goals, and keep moving forward.

Even if you’re doing everything right, there is still a good chance that you will need to reset your goals from time to time.

And that is ok.  Read more

Steady Progress

Steady Progress Leads to the Results You Want

Three weeks into 2015, how are you doing with your goals/resolutions for the year?

If you’re like me, you’re working on some big things this year, and three weeks is barely enough time to put  a dent into any of them. The fact that so little progress has been made to date could be seen as frustrating if I wasn’t fully committed to the task at hand.

Make Steady Progress

No wonder so many resolutions struggle to make it past the three week mark. Read more
