Tulips; & April in Review / Health Goals for May

Monday, April 29, 2013

I posted this on a team and thought it might be helpful to some of us . . .

April is almost over. It's time for an After-Action report. List all the good, bad, and ugly for April.

REMEMBER to notice and give yourself credit for the GOOD.

Then lay it to rest. Give it a eulogy. Bury it. And move on. April is behind us now, and there's nothing we can do to change it. Close the book on April, say goodbye, and let it rest in peace.

Carry the lessons with you; but use it as a learning experience, not self-flagellation.

What are SMART Goals you want for May? SMART Goals are:
S = specific
M = measurable
A = attainable
R = realistic
T = timed or time-driven

Make a list of lifestyle changes you want / need to get and stay healthy, attain and maintain a healthy BMI and physical fitness. If you could only choose ONE thing for a SMART Goal, work on only ONE lifestyle change, which one would have the most beneficial impact for your life?

Let's define what we need the most, and work on it during May. After it's defined, let's break it down into 4 babysteps. One per week. And work on weekly babystep goals for the overall May goal.

    What a beautiful way of getting some very important points across. Yes April is gone but the lessons I learned in this month will help me in the next month. Now I am going to set my SMART goals for May.
    Thank you for this blog and the flowers are so pretty.

    The tulips remind me of the tulip fields here in WA state.
