Daily Thought 2017
It’s not just the presence of a goal that stimulates progress; it is also the level of commitment to the goal. There is a big difference between a wish or a hope, or even a vision, and a rock-solid goal. When it becomes a BIG GOAL, there is a level of commitment that energizes you or your organization so that you find your own solutions or your team brings you solutions to your challenges. When you take the initiative to progress to the next level of commitment, alignment and ownership have already occurred. Having an excellent plan has to be matched with excellent execution. Clarity of commitment to the goal may just be more important than the goal itself in achieving audacious goals. You have to be all in!
“You don’t have to change that much for it to make a great deal of difference. A few simple disciplines can have a major impact on how your life works out in the next 90 days, let alone in the next 12 months or the next 3 years.

Polar Smart Coaching Training Tip: Working at Your Individual Pace
Exercising at your current fitness level gives your body time to adjust to the demands of regular exercise and helps avoid the injuries that will sideline your efforts to improve your fitness. The first benchmark is usually working up to being able to complete 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise without stopping. If you have a heart rate monitor, or if you are using a treadmill or other equipment, measure your calorie count (how many calories burned) and commit to increasing this amount by one calorie each exercise session. Your joints are not as dynamic as your muscle so give your body and joints time to adapt by keeping it low impact until there is sufficient muscle to support your joints during exercise. If you are already active your calorie count is a good measure of your body’s ability to produce energy, set a benchmark and begin to increase it over time. Setting your own benchmarks (calorie count in 30 minutes, number of pushups, or even them number of minutes in exercise each week) can give you the framework to work within your limits and challenge your fitness over time. Be sure to check with your doctor if you have been inactive for a long time before starting a new exercise program. Don’t wait, get moving today.
