The big picture: what’s yours?

Winter is well and truly here and its getting harder and harder to stick to those big picture goals.

I have to admit that on more than a couple of occasions this month, I have turned off the alarm and slept through my scheduled run.

When you make the decision to stay in bed rather than to get up and get going, you start a pattern that may take you further and further away from your big picture goals.

The last time I chose to miss a scheduled exercise session by staying in bed, I decided that there would have to be a consequence .

I decided that the consequence would be scheduling exercise later on that evening even though I hate doing exercise late in the day.

The next time the alarm went off at 5am I made sure I got up, no matter how much I wanted to stay in my warm bed.

Many people start the year with a goal in mind, but they lose focus, get distracted and make excuses when conditions become harder.

I was interviewed by Dennis Walter on 3AW a couple of weeks ago to discuss this very issue.

For those of you who missed it, hereโ€™s the interview.

Did you have plans, aspirations and goals at the beginning of the year that you were successful with?

Your triumphs and challenges can help others, I would love to hear your thoughts.
