A blog about a blog, goal setting, and achievement

Ha! I just read this article... nerdfitness.com/blog/201

On Facebook someone had posted something about the Paleo diet and while I didn't read that full article a side blog caught my eye. The title is Living Vicariously Through Yourself which sounded so interesting I couldn't resist.

The basic idea is a good one. Instead of sitting around saying that you wish you could do that (whatever that is) take steps towards doing it. Don't worry about how long its going to take just make a plan and do it. Too often people that say "I wish I could do that." don't even get off their butt long enough to attempt it, or plan to attempt it. Its true, not just for myself, but the bulk of people I know.

It made me think of things I've said in the past that I wish I could do..or things I think of others doing that I live vicariously though...

The 30 pushups on my toes thing (actually working towards that)
Doing a pull up unassisted (working on that)
Running a mile straight (loosely working on that)

Its interesting because the things I am working towards that I'm actually making progress on I do have a plan for. I do push up work on a regular basis, as well as work to strengthen my back. I wouldn't consider myself a regular runner but I'm getting back into it.

Thinking along those lines I think its beneficial for anyone to think of stuff they say they wish they could do and then plan accordingly. Do you really want to do it? Then why not try? What is holding you back?

I'm still a fan of the 30daypush.com method. I still make my 10 goal list once a week on Sunday. In a years time, since last April, I have accomplished 5 of my goals. Its a free site and free advice. It starts at the beginning of each month and only takes a few minutes each day. I honestly can't reccomend it enough!
