In my job working in projects we talk a lot about setting things up for success and that got me thinking about how I can help myself work towards my goals in successful ways.
2015 is going to be a big year for me. I turn thirty and have set myself my biggest challenge to date of completing a half ironman distance triathlon.
So I need to set myself up for success and in order to do that I need to plan.
I currently use a Moleskine journal to record my bullet journal and that is working really well for me. I have decided to add to this by using the Moleskine Wellness journal template you can get online to stick into your own notebooks. I like the goals pages and how they are set up into both monthly and weekly.
The monthly templates I have used to insert all the events I am taking part in and will add specific weight, fitness, and personal goals at the beginning of each month.
The weekly ones I will use to be very specific about what I want to achieve that week. This will be update to date with any commitments so I can be realistic and flexible in my approach. There is no point in saying I will always do my ideal week of swimming club, running club, and cycling, if I have to go away for work!
I really like being able to tick things of my list and I think this is why the bullet journal idea has worked so well for me as it allows me to be organised and tick things off a list. So going back to weekly goals will help me take small steps to reaching my bigger goals. I won’t be sharing all the details of my goals, but I wanted to share how I organizing my goals and therefore setting myself up for success.
