What goals did you want to achieve? And where are you now? How big is the difference?
If your goal included fat loss this year -- how much fat did you lose? Are you leaner than you were one year ago?
- If your goal was a strength increase -- what lifts did you improve? And by how much?
- If your goal was muscle increase -- how many pounds of muscle did you gain?
- If your goal was to make more money -- what is the difference in your bank balance?
- If your goal was to change jobs -- did you?
Did you achieve what you set out to do? Did you get lean -- or did you spend too long looking for the perfect program? Did you gain muscle -- or did you spend more time discussing what to do on an internet message board than you did training? Did you gain strength -- or did you jump from program to program searching for something magical? Did you change jobs - or did you spend more time watching TV than sending out resumes?
In other words - as Dan John has said: "What are your goals? What are your behaviors? Do your behaviors match your goals?
Remember - if you missed the target, never in history has it ever been the tagets fault'.
Regardless - what happened in 2007 no longer matters - it's done. Just be aware of how effective your behaviors were in reaching your goals. And be aware that can always be improved upon.
The question is -- what will 2008 hold for you? Set a new goal. Decide what it is that you want to accomplish. Decide what plan you will follow to achieve that goal. And finally - adjust your behaviors so that you achieve the outcome you're looking for.
