Resolutions For The New Year

I hit the trails at Mt Macedon this morning for a training run. About 50 min into the run I came across a fellow runner (Troy). We spent the next hour running together and swapping stories and plans for the coming 12 months. This hour included the ascent of Mt Towrong.

Whilst chatting, Troy declared that for 2014 he had set himself the goal of running an ultra-marathon…every month! Whilst this feat is almost certainly beyond my body at the present, it did explain why Troy was heading out for a 40km trail run (versus my sub-25km).

It also reminded me that I have not formalised my goals for the new year AND I am running out of days. So best I start by determining that in 2014 I will attempt my first ultra-marathon.

What goals do you wish to achieve in 2014?

Are they personal goals? Or business related?

Best of luck, whatever they might be.

I learnt a long time ago that in order to grow it is necessary to step outside one’s comfort zone. As a person who craves growth and change this has led me to continually seek out opportunities to make myself uncomfortable, whether physically, emotionally or psychologically. The (Dis)Comfort Zone blog is a vehicle for cataloging those experiences.
