The middle of the week – Setting New Targets

Its already the middle of the week and here I am checking my schedule for the upcoming weeks and all I can think about is how can I juggle my time for all those activities. Firstly work has started to pile up and I have deadlines in the next couple of weeks which I definitely need to meet as well as clear up before I head over for 3 weeks of training (something I do look forward to and no, I am not being trained but I will be giving training instead as part of my criteria as a people developer).

Other areas which might take up more of my time would be the amount of photos I will need to process, starting from the wedding I shot last weekend and the next three weddings I will be shooting for the next 3 weekends. I definitely need to streamline my workflow and change some of my habits already. So how should I be able to track my habits or track some sort of KPI (key performance indexes)?

Hence, I shall state all of my targets and habit changes here on this blog and keep track of my progress over the next month.

  1. Wake up early and be in the office before 8.30am (I would probably need to wake up at 7.15am at the very latest)
  2. Complete 3 sets of 20 push-ups and 20 sit-ups every day (the number of push-ups and sit-ups will increase as the weeks go by)
  3. Practice hitting at least 200 balls at the driving range (excluding lessons) twice a week
  4. Stop eating fast food and soft drinks (excluding 100plus) for the next 2 months

At least with a healthier lifestyle, I can probably last the day without feeling so tired as well as have enough energy to keep me disciplined enough to process my photos and deliver them in a timely manner as well. Also I will definitely benefit from a healthier lifestyle in the long run. Anyway it has been way overdue on this matter as I am a super procastinator.

I hope that everyone here who reads this post will help me to keep accountable on what I have stated above. Will update everyone in my next post to see if I have accomplished any of my targets.

  • Wow, those are some targets! For me:

    #1 is going to be difficult… I get in at 9:20++ usually.

    #2 is going to be tough – but does mopping floors, doing laundry count as exercise 🙂 ok, maybe moving house will count as doing weights! Aimed to do thirty laps at the pool weekly… bah, no where close!

    #4. Only achievable target 🙂 Yay! Only had fast food like 9 times this year! I had to have a cold coke yesterday after visiting our home-reno-in-progress due to the heat…

    Good luck on your targets!
