A New Month, A New Goal...

Can you believe it's already March?

It's spring-like weather lately here in Maine, and people are finally dusting off those winter blues. 

Life is good. 

As we head into a new month I want to ask you a very important set of questions...

We're sitting here in 30 days, on 3/31, what does life look like?

What does success look like?

List it all out. 

Get very specific. 

Not, I want to lose weight. 

How about, I want to lose one pant size or I want to lose 5lbs?

Not, I want to get stronger. 

How about, I want to be able to do 5 push-ups or I want to be able to squat 50lbs?

It doesn't matter that it's not a Monday. 

It doesn't matter that it's not a New Year.

Use the first day of the month to "reset."

Get very clear on what you want to achieve this month. 

I talked through a couple fitness examples above, but you can also do this for the rest of your life as well.

Now, once you have everything written down and you have a bulleted list of what you want to achieve the most important question to answer is...

What do you need to change to make that happen?

You see, having goals and dreams is great. 

We all want to be further ahead in our goals by the end of this month. 

Writing down what we want it to look like is important, but we can't stop there. 

What are you going to change in your daily life to make those goals for March actually happen?

Because remember, if you always do what you always did, you'll always get what you always got. 

If you want to achieve a goal that you currently are not achieving something needs to change.  

It could be nutrition...

It could be frequency or consistency...

It could be coaching or accountability...

But something needs to change. 

Don't go into a new month with the same approach and expect a different result. 

So, what's your goal for March?

I'd love to hear it. 

1% Better.

Dedicated to Your Success,
