Autumn is fast approaching.  It’s that time of the year when our thoughts turn away from summer fun and back to business…

We make fourth quarter plans.  We take stock.

Did your health go off the rails a bit this summer?  Worried about the approaching holiday parties?

If you’re feeling a bit disoriented, try this exercise for getting back on track.  Write down these 3 things

  1. your goals (the destination),
  2. your current situation (your coordinates), and
  3. the path that connects both of them (the route)

because the only way to get somewhere is by knowing the destination, your start point, and the path to take.  Once you have point A and B, you can GPS the route, right?

After you write these three things down, create a graphic for yourself.

Why?  Because only 10% of what you read is retained.  Retention jumps to 30% if you use a visual. Want an even better ROI?  Get on the path and DO it. Doing and practicing brings the ROI up to a whopping 90%–victory!

What do I mean by visual?  It could be 3 bubbles.  One with the goal. One containing the things that prevent you from reaching your goal. And one with things that will connect you to your goal. Get clarity about the path you need to take and the things that can/will derail you.

Then make a pie chart of your time.Then, First, figure out what you need to do to get healthier and be more fit.  Do you have time for that education?  (You’ll need more than just some information from the internet.)  Most people aren’t in the position to read text books and attend classes these days, but if you have the time,, awesome!  Get that education.  When you’re done, let your education produce the path you’ll need to reach your destination, and then go back to your time chart and find the time to implement it.

It really doesn’t matter when you start. It only matters that you start.

If you’re like most people, you’d like to save yourself some energy and some time by using a professional.  In that case, you can call us for the directions you are looking for.Our head trainer, Marcus, has some openings in his schedule while he does his research for his Masters thesis.  Schedule a free consultation by phone at (404) 435-6367 or schedule online HERE and together, we’ll get you where you want to go.
