Journal:  Where can you make a change? List the top three things that have been irking you about your workplace – those things that have been driving you nuts. Look at the list and circle the one you know you have power to influence. Consider what actions you can take this coming week  (a conversation with your boss or co-worker, an earlier arrival time, etc) that will move you toward a better work week –  and ultimately a happier you!  [Click here for additional Journal exercises]

Goat

by admin

Your “goat” is whatever exercise is your biggest weakness…

It may be a movement you hate, of feel that you can’t execute well, or haven’t ever tried out of fear.  In Crossfit training, you’ll often hear people talk about “killing their goat”. This simply means overcoming weaknesses.  At the Crossfit Games, elite athletes will often share that this strategy is integral to their continued improvement.

So what is your goat?  Is it simply exercising more?  If so, instead of prioritizing your schedule, schedule your priorities.
