I’m working on consistently take action — this page right here is my way of holding myself accountable to my projects under construction — and you guys can be my accountability partners!
As a way to keep myself in action and in motion towards my goals, I’ve challenged myself to ninety days of tracking my action steps in the different areas of my life. The most important tasks I will list below. (See also post for further details.)
- Rehab Revolution: my blog about healing, a comprehensive resource on therapy (traditional and alternative) and mindset techniques for coping and spreading awareness. It is my goal to post to this blog on weekdays.
- Memoirs: Since 2008 I’ve been working on writing memoirs on the effects of disability acquisition — how they change you not only physically, but mentally, spiritually, and socially. This is my great project that I intend to publish and get out into the world as soon as I can. But in order to do so, I have to finish them.
- Novella: Little do many people know, but my inner artist has also been working on a fiction story since 2008. It has been burning a hole in my soul for all this time being unwritten! So I have to get that going as well.
- Life map: This is a poster board illustrating in detail the objectives, goals, and action steps you’d like to implement toward achieving what you want in life. It was assigned during Jonathan Budd’s Unstoppable Entrepreneur conference, and I put it off because I didn’t want to be traveling around with a poster board in my carry-on. So now I have markers and blank foam boards lying in wait in my house.
- Finish reading The Power of Now and The Shadow Effect
- Daily meditation and centering; yogic breathing
health + fitness
- Daily workouts: alternating strength training with cardio, integrating both balance and coordination
- Regular rehab: specific exercises to provoke neural reprogramming in my left hand and arm
- Diet: keeping track of what I eat and in what quantities. This way, I can see where I’m making the biggest mistakes and limit them (portion control!)
- Dental: flossing twice a day rather than once
- Yoga: beginning each day with a gentle yoga practice
Note: I am aware there is no way I can rely on you readers to hound me to follow through on these things. But I feel that putting them in print gives me more motivation to be able to pull it off — let’s call it an intention. Also, I have actually enlisted a real live person as an accountability partner (and I for him) who will check up on me every day. At the end of the 90-day challenge, we’ll see how well I was able to track my success and trick myself into keeping these changes in my daily lifestyle.
