on becoming a streaker.

I am a January girl.  I love new calendars and goals for the year.  I love the freshness of a new year, seeing new joggers on the street and dreaming of what’s next.

I read through a quick and convicting little book today about setting mini-habits.  The premise is that we set too lofty of goals that rely on motivation (which will fail at some point), and that people would be better off with tiny, mini-goals in order to trick our brains into compliance.  It is for that reason that I am sitting down tonight to type out 5o words on my fancypants new macbook.  It is also why I ridiculously ran around our shop 5 times.  Don’t be impressed.  It’s not that big of a shop.  The idea is if your mini-habit is laughably small, you’re on track.  So here are my mini-goals for 2015:

* Run around the shop one time every single day.  Yep, that one is laughably easy and once I hit my goal, I ran 4 additional laps.  Like a rockstar.  Except it would take me 20 times around the shop to make a mile and I don’t even want to think about how many laps to hit a half marathon.  Still, hitting that  teeny tiny goal felt good and I think the author might be on to something.  He referred frequently to his own experience of dramatically changing his fitness level by challenging himself to complete one push up per day.

* Read one sentence of the Bible every morning.  Be thou impressed.  I’m sure it would take me eons to read the whole thing at that rate but my hope is that committing to putting my body in the chair will improve the amount of bible I’m reading lately.

 * Write fifty words per day.  So far I’m at 332.  Easy peasy.

What are your goals for the year?  Have you ever thought of doing mini-goals?  What laughably small thing could you commit to do now?

oh this is speaking my language. I think I could do one pushup a day and run up the driveway at least once a day. I could not however run in place for 10 minutes. :) Good job to accomplish your goals!

I'm totally loving the idea of little goals! Such a great idea.

One of my mini-goals is to catch up on your blog. I know you haven't written as much as you would like (you're still way ahead of my two posts last year), I'm loving every word. Miss you, old friend.
