The Five Steps

At the studio, we're taught the five steps to achieving your goals. Here they are:

  1. Set it
  2. Plan it
  3. Check it
  4. Fix it
  5. Achieve it!

Everyone here has set their goal, and bravely posted it. Excellent! Step two is to plan a path to reach that goal.

Your plan should be realistic, yet challenging; just like your goal. Here's my plan:

  • Wake up 15-30 minutes earlier every weekday, do 50 pushups, *75-150 crunches.
  • 2 hour endurance practice every Sunday at 8am.
  • Go to class 3-4 times a week. Includes:
  • 2 regular classes,
  • 2 classes focusing on specific technique & forms practice.
*75 regular crunches, or 75 side crunches each side. Alternating daily.

This morning I started the plan, however I did not get out of bed early, hesitated during my pushups, and only did 75 crunches. It was still a success, in spite of these shortcomings. I know pushing these numbers won't be the hard part. The hard part will be getting out of bed and doing it.

OK people, what's your plan?
