Since I'm starting over, this seems like a good idea to follow. And I like the idea of adding payments too since I already have a list of goal weights and a few rewards I want. Right now some are undecided, but I'm just waiting to think of what I really want to motivate me. For example, I already added a reward for the 200 pound mark, and I want that reward sooo badly that I've decided to restart from scratch so I can make sure I have a better, more organized plan of reaching it. Anyways, because I'm a writer anyways, and currently taking a Technical Writing class this semester, this sounds like a fun way to add some extra motivation and guidelines.
I'm just like everybody else, only different.
Current Goal - 10 Percent Gone at 212lbs
"I just entered this brand new world and I'm so openhearted. I know I've got a long way to go, but I'm just getting started. I'm over my head and I know it, I know it. I'm doing my best not to show it, to show it. Whatever it takes to be all I was meant to be, I'm gonna try." - from Demi Lovato's song "Me, Myself and Time"
I'll list below how I'm doing it, but each of us should do it as we feel best! My way is probably too long and drawn-out for many, so a simpler listing may work for you. But here's how I'm doing mine in case it's of use to you:
* I'm doing one page per issue/problem/habit. * Typing it on a word processing document. * Printing it up, leaving room for additions as I think of them... * Punching holes for a binder, then inserting the pages in that.
Yep, I've already started my 'formal' contract for success... and challenge you to do this for yourself, too!!
I LOVED THIS IDEA... and am myself structuring and beginning my own Contract for Success. The contract concept goes far beyond goal-setting because it disects the targeted areas needing change...and develops a sort of game-plan for making that change happen!
HERE IS THE CHALLENGE.... an ongoing one that only starts now!! +++++++++++++++++++++++++++ CREATE YOUR OWN CONTRACT FOR SUCCESS! That's it. Plain and simple. Use Coach Dean's Motivational Tip #5 blog as your guide.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++ This challenge is for each of us to create our own Contract. This contract can be done on paper, in blogs, in any format that works for us!
