How the Coffee Shop Can Help You Hit Your Goals

accountability Jul 28, 2020

Let's say we met at a coffee shop, one year from today...    .

..and you were looking back over the past 12 months.  

And I ask you something incredibly important:  

☕ What happened in your life, both personally and professionally, for you to feel happy with your progress?    

I love this question.  

In all honesty, I ask this of every client-athlete I bring on because it allows me to plan. 

Even better, it allows the client, and you if you TRUTHFULLY answer it, to focus on what you really want.  

And especially what makes you happy.  

Coming from a place of happiness allows you to buy into your own ideas.  

This buy-in then gives you the discipline you need to implement and follow through.  

By the way, the TWO main areas I see many over-40 men and women struggle with are, wait for it...  

*Implementation (getting started) and...  

*Follow through (finishing what you started).  

In fact, how you respond to this one question is essential.  

So answer it now:  

☕ A year from TODAY, what happened in your life, both personally and professionally, for you to feel happy with your progress?    

I also use your response to CREATE four 90-day sprints:  

❄️ Sprint #1: Winter
🌻 Sprint #2: Spring
🌞 Sprint #3: Summer
🍁 Sprint #4: Fall  

That way, every quarter, we know what we are working on and, by the end of the year, we are that much closer to meeting or exceeding those tasks that bring on the happiness and your results.  

By the way, you must get measurable results...  

...even if that result is maintenance of excellence.  

If you have time today, I urge you to sit with your significant other, your team, your family, even with yourself, and truly answer that question.  

Really give it some thought.  

The beautiful thing is that once you answered it, you know where you are now and you know where you want to go -- so all that's left is to map your journey.  

Then execute it and follow through.  

What really is going to bring you happiness and success is NOT another quick-fix diet, another "Insane" workout DVD that leaves you with crippling soreness and aching joints.  

It's not a vacation home, a new sports car or a fancy wristwatch either.  

It's something much, much deeper...    

Figure it out then let's map it out together.
