I’ve just finished reading BJJ GRRL’s post, Progress Report – 2010. She talked about how she lost focus on her 2010 Goals. One of the problems that she noted was the length of the list. She also stated that she quickly started ignoring her prominently displayed list. Before you attack me for knocking THE GRAPPLE GIRL, I am not. The girl kicked some serious but, in tournaments and class. Major props for her. I’m just saying that she’s right. We all do the same thing. We make a grand list of goals and then quickly shuffle them under the carpet, bed, cat litter box, insert favorite “please forget I wrote that place”.
I’m guilty as well. *the worst actually* I think that I’m going to look at my big yearly list, and break it down into little Snicker bites. (I keep thinking about chocolate?) I’ll pick a few things to focus on for January. I’ll call it Task List – January. I’ll write them on some pretty card, maybe with some cool ink. *There is a girl gene running around in there somewhere* Maybe post a copy on my car dash-board, so I see it before and after I train. Another copy for my pocket, to carry around at work, grocery store, doctor’s office… You know those unpleasant places that you find yourself. If it works, I’ll do a monthly task list.
I’ve got dinner plans, so I have to go for now. However, I will have that Task List up by tonight.
