From last week… how did you go? I managed to get 3 out of 4 ticked off, so I’m happy!
This week, I’d like to impose a limitation, if I may, which will make your week much more productive. That limit is no more or less than 3 resolutions per week. I’ve noticed that a lot of us have been making huge lists which go on forever, & then when we review them in a week’s time, we feel like we’ve failed or let ourselves down because we didn’t manage to tick off 10 billion goals.
The idea of a weekly resolution is that it is a small thing — what SARK likes to call a “micro-movement“. (She is a fabulous woman.) New year’s resolutions are sometimes so huge & daunting that we are paralysed when we look at them. Hence, a weekly resolution is more about setting a general intention — pointing the ship in the direction you want to go.
So, 3 things! Yes, we are all busy, we all have a lot of things on our plates. 3 things. No more, no less. If you complete them all by Tuesday, you’re welcome to write yourself some more, but let’s set ourselves up for success, hmm? & if you have many, many things to do, learn to prioritise. Write down the 3 most important things you need to do.
With that in mind, here are some things I want to do this week!
Start implementing ideas from The 4-Hour Workweek
I just finished this book & I swear, I think it is going to revolutionise my life. I spent part of yesterday in bed reading it, & when I was done I was so excited that I raced around the house, desperate for someone to discuss it with. Simon was away over the weekend so at this very instant, he is lying in bed beside me reading it (at my insistence!). If you’re interested in improving your life & doing great things instead of hanging out in your office cubicle, you must read this book! (Real review coming soon.) Having said all this, Timothy has provided some excellent ideas & steps to upgrade your life, & I’m starting tomorrow.
Exercise at least 3 times
I exercised quite a bit last week. It’s funny, before I went raw I was always bored by the concept of exercise — no time, no energy, couldn’t be bothered, blah blah. But now I have much more vim, & where there’s a vim, there’s a way! (Bad pun maybe.) Taking glutamine half an hour before I go to the gym makes an absolute world of difference, too — I don’t feel so knackered1 after my cardio, & I often come home after cardio & weights & jump on my mini-trampoline. Normally I would just come home & lie down for a while. But I’m really enjoying it & it is totally worth keeping up.
Be so fabulous at Dr Sketchy’s on Wednesday night that they invite me to model in New York!
I’ve been in touch with Molly Crabapple of Dr Sketchy’s New York fame, & well, there have been murmurings about perhaps possibly maybe if the stars are aligned modelling for them in New York when I’m there in September! Eeeeeeeeeeee! So I am going to go & pose up a storm on Wednesday! If you want to come & see me shimmer & shake & flaunt & pout in Melbourne, by the way, the deets are here!
Okay — give me your 3 weekly resolutions & let’s make them stick! Remember to grab a badge, too!
