These days, it seems like everyone is working more hours and using the old “no-time-to-exercise” excuse more than ever. But what if you could actually work out at work?

While you won’t get to the Olympics this way, you can do stretching, muscle-strengthening, and even short stints of aerobic exercises right at your desk (or maybe in a vacant conference room or stairwell). After all, doctors say any amount of exercise helps — the benefits are cumulative.

Some other exercises that might work with your schedule are:

  • Doing a few simple stretches during the day.
  • Taking the stairs instead elevator a few times during the week..
  • Taking a ten to fifteen minute walk .during lunch.

Achievement Not A Distination??

Achiement Not a Distination

Question of the Day:

How do you define achievement? I always expect things to happen quickly, but generally find that it seldom happens that way and I don’t know why.

Jack Nichiaus wrote, Aichievement is the largely the product of steadily raising one’s levels of aspiration and expectation.”

Achievement is often a process, with a number of stops along the way.  Achieving what we desire to accomplish is usually not a direct destination.

Most importantly don’t discount the process, because it has the potential to greatly enrich the desired achievement.

Tips for Achieving the Goals we Set!!!

 

Question of the Day:

I am a good goal setter.  I am diligent about what I set out to do, however, for some reason I often find myself not following thru and giving up on my goals.  I would love some insight on how I can complete the goals I have set for 2012.

The goal is to cross the finish line, to achieve what  was desired to come about when you started out.  So many times the details along the way keep us from where we set out to go initially.  When you stop short of your goal the finish line might only be a few feet  in front of you.  Often, we drop out because the fog of detail overwhelms us. The fog keeps us from seeing that the goal is might actually be just within our grasp and completely doable; if we just keep going/doing.

Next time you think of abandoning your goal step back and try to realically evaluate whether it is time to actually step back and try something else, or are you just in temporary overwhelm and should push forward. Over time you will find goal completion rate on the rise.
