It’s all about the X…
Sooooo…the whole list of ten things exercise…what an eye opener that always turns out to be…for those of you that are not understanding this it has been mentioned on several FB lives and in a past blog. I suggested that people play along with me in seeing how effective they really are in their daily lives. The suggestion was to make a list of 10 things that if you did them EVERY day you would feel like you were winning in your life. The 10 things are up to you, could be whatever you want…then make a chart for the 10 things a day, 7 days a week and start giving yourself a daily score by putting an X next to tasks completed and a 0 next to those left undone.
This is something that one of my coaches assigned me a long time ago and over the years I start it up again from time to time to see how I am doing with being effective and creating forward motion.
Began this again (and invited you guys to start it too) on Jan. 12th when I did the FB Live Coffee Chat that Sunday morning. Here are how things have stacked up since then…
1st week start Jan. 12= 90, 80, 90, 100, 70, 70, 50
2nd week start Jan. 19= 70, 60, 60, 80, 80, 60, 50
3rd week so far Jan. 26= 50, 70, 70, 50, 40 (fri and sat still to go)
As you can see, I got more pathetic as time marched on…so when I want to know why I am not producing certain results in my life, here is my answer. These scores are SO typical of me and the way I approach things, come out of the gate balls to the wall and then lose steam over time, then I will give myself a pep talk and get back on the beam and go balls to the wall again. The result being and UP and DOWN kind of momentum instead of a steady forward and organized force. This is the pattern that has gotten in my way for decades and I am really committed to breaking through this and having it be a different way.
I encourage those of you not playing this game with me to join in—given that the 10 things can be whatever you want it should be relatively easy to knock it out of the park with this process…unless you are me…LOL
Things on my list include working out, reading for an hour, making the bed, keeping the kitchen counter clear, gratitude journal…simple things really…things that one should be able to easily accomplish daily. Several days I simply decided to rebel against the list and purposely did not complete things that were simple as if I was punishing whom exactly????
Funny thing to note is that on my 90 and 100 couple of days I was so on purpose and filled with energy that I even surprised myself with all that I accomplished…kind of seeing a self-sabotage thing going on here…which I am committed to breaking into so stay tuned for updates on my scores!
Don’t forget to join me Sunday morning at 10am EST for Coffee Chat on FB Live.
Have a good week and here’s to the X’s.
