Let’s take weight loss as an example. You can lose weight by either decreasing the calories you eat or by exercising or, preferably, both. If you try to get in the habit of eating healthier and exercising by yourself, your chances of success are slim (and you will not be). If you join an existing group that is committed to the same goals, where you can meet regularly and share motivation, exchange strategies and exercise together, you will almost certainly be successful.
So, whatever your goal is, get together with others that are doing the same thing. That’s the way to make it happen, and it’s fun too.]]>
I gave it a try at first, because even if other circumstances prevent me picking up a book on any given day, I always read my email.
You can also form reading teams, so if you wanted a Nine Moons Team, it looks like it would be fairly easy to set up.]]>
It seems that we all share many of the same goals, so let’s keep the comments going with progress reports. Everyone can come back here and post their weight, their running times or other athletic events, as well as chapters of novels (or, if you don’t want us reading it just yet, at least outlines of chapters and progress reports on how many pages have been written).
You can also post progress reports on chapters of the BoM read, David, and any other goal progress you want to keep track of. This will be a good way to keep track of our progress and cheer each other on.
Anyone who wishes to join us should post their resolutions here and then everyone should plan to make a progress report at least once per month (or more often if you can).
Come on everyone, are you in or out?]]>
David mentioned writing a novel which is something I have plaaned to do for about 12 years but haven’t really started. It seems like after I finish my workout and eat my low calorie meal, that would be a good way to spend my evenings. Anyway, saying it or writing it down is a good way to start. Actually doing it is the real challenge. Wish me luck.]]>
I’d be more specific about how much weight I want to lose, but then I’d be tipping my hand to how much I NEED to lose.]]>
