This page is focused on what I’m doing right now. It’s all about what I’ve got in the works at this moment in time.
Originally inspired by Derek Sivers, this Now page is dedicated to my present focus. And because so much of what I think about, write about, and create is based on goal success, that’s what I share here.
The goals that I’m currently working on.
*Note: When you’re ready to start achieving your goals as well, enroll in my goal success course here.
My goals right now (in no particular order)
Last updated: 3/2/21
Publish one new post per day, five days a week with a word count of at least 500, but no more than 2,500
Two books have inspired this goal. Your Music and People by Derek Sivers and The War of Art by Steven Pressfield.
Sivers: If you’re torn whether to focus on promotion or creation, ask yourself: are your fans telling their friends about you on their own, unprompted? If they are, promote. If they aren’t, keep refining, creating, improving until they do.
Pressfield: Your job is to create. Day after day. Whether you feel like it or not.
Complete two books a month (either physical, audiobook, or Ebook)
The more I learn, the more I grow in every way. Books are the best way to achieve that aim. See every book that I’ve read this year here.
Go on a date with my daughter once a month
Strengthen the bond I have with my daughter. 🙂
Improve our home in at least one way each month
Our home still needs work done to it. A little each month will yield amazing results down the road.
Go on a date with my wife once a month
Strengthen the bond I have with my wife. 🙂
Go to the beach twice a month
We live close to the beach and I want to take advantage.
At least four nights a week, go to sleep (ie. close my eyes) with eight hours and 40 minutes until my alarm is set to go off
I feel my best and perform my best when well-rested. This goal ensures that I am in that rested state the majority of the time.
From tracking my sleep over the years, I know that in order to get eight hours of sleep, I need to close my eyes with eight hours and 40 minutes until my alarm goes off.
*I can’t control the exact amount of sleep I get, but I can control the amount of time I give myself. Thus, this goal.
Do 50 one-arm kettlebell rows (50 reps per arm), four days a week
My cardiovascular health is great, but my muscle health could be better. This easy activity (I’m using a 10lb weight), with time, will help increase muscle tone and build strength.
Consume ten or fewer grams of net carbohydrates a day at least five days a week
Based on the findings of the book, Good Calories, Bad Calories, by Gary Taubes, it appears that a low carbohydrate diet is ideal for enhancing leanness and preventing illnesses like diabetes, heart disease, obesity, various cancers, and even Alzheimer’s.
Spend at least five minutes each day thinking of things I’m grateful for
Based on my understanding of the book, The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy, thinking of what you’re thankful for helps to neutralize any negativity that you’re experiencing. In turn, this opens you up (consciously and subconsciously) for more positive things to occur in your life; much like a captain raising morale amongst the crew.
I hope you’ve found my goals helpful and motivating! If you have any questions or want to start a conversation – you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
