Revamping Reality, Part 3: Restructuring Goals
Since I recreated my reality and gave myself a sense of purpose, I decided to endow myself with goals. These goals are pretty much the same as they were in Operation Hamilton, except I’m giving myself the flexibility to change my goals from week to week (add or subtract weekly goals, or change the quantity of a given goal). That way, I can truly assess my growth and stay fluid and flexible – I can modify my goals system using just about whatever I want.
How I have my goals broken down is this:
Daily Goals, which are grouped into two sides, health and discipline.
Health includes getting adequate sleep (if possible), drinking 5.5 L of water, stretching out my back, exercising 6 days per week, and eating 3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil. Discipline includes finishing my homework, writing out my Code every morning, doing my chore to fund my trip to Europe, and limiting time wasted on the Internet and TV.
Weekly goals, at this time, include:
“Reality Checks”, where I remind myself to mold my reality according to the Facts written in my previous post and to stay on my purpose. this is important in constructing my reality – soon, maintaining my reality will become effortless, but this period of conscious thought is needed to make it real in my mind.
Read a large number of pages in books, so I can broaden my horizons.
Stickhandle in my basement for hockey, so I can improve my skills.
Leave comments on others’ blogs and post here, to improve my writing skills and expand my network on the internet (and to gain some awesome insights through peoples’ posts!).
Limit my number of cheat foods to stay healthy. Treat my body like an engine; good stuff in, good performance out.
Make entries in my notebook, to make sure I’m always thinking about anything and creating ideas of my own.
Meditate for certain number of minutes each week to center myself allow myself to feel good all the time.
I track all my goals on a whiteboard I have hung on my wall. For each week, I have a symbol, so it is easy to keep track of all of them on my whiteboard. The whiteboard’s visibility reminds me to accomplish my goals, day in, and day out (or at least, it should, considering I installed it earlier today). I can already sense that the motivation to complete my goals is much stronger now that I’ve publicized them, in a way, on my wall. I highly recommend it.
Sorry for the short post – I’m in a rush. To complete my goals.
