I’ve been working from home for 15 years and I love it.
However, something I noticed, not only for me, but for lots of people who find it very “convenient” to pop their head in the fridge whenever they want is the unwanted weight gain that comes with the luxury of working from home.
Truth be told, unwanted weight can creep up little by little until one day we say, “Enough is enough.”
Or maybe we find that by having access to outside distractions such as television (for some), working in the yard, playing with the kids, grandchildren or pets, or whatever, we let precious time in our day slip by.
Frustrated that we are off track with the life we choose to create, we are ready for massive change. Or so we say.
The solution seems so simple. We set goals to get back on track. The trouble is, many of us soon get off track and promise ourselves we will make the much needed changes someday.

Well, someday may never happen. The secret to setting and attaining goals, whether personally or professionally is to aim for things that will literally transform our thinking, beliefs and actions.
Here’s a “someday” for me that finally became a “today”. I have been talking about participating in a marathon for years. I also wanted to give back more to those who may need help. It’s not that I don’t give back; I simply want to do more.
The opportunity to do both was presented to me about one month ago. I heard a commercial on the radio about a marathon taking place in October in Portland. Anyone who joined the marathon through what is called Team in Training would receive ongoing training by certified coaches.
And, we would be doing something really good for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) by committing to raise funds in order to participate.
Upon going to an information meeting I made the commitment to both the marathon and raising money for LLS.
I knew I wasn’t going to go from never having been in a marathon before to going the distance of 26.2 miles in one step. It would take commitment, focus and reminders of why I chose to do this in the first place.
The decision to participate in the marathon was the catalyst for setting some very transformational goals. Goals that are impacting me personally and professionally.
Personally, I am training 6 days a week by power walking, bicycling and weight training; dropping unwanted (and unhealthy) weight, eating very healthy and feeling great.
Professionally I am more focused, able to accomplish more in less time, and feeling a very high level of passion for what I do.
Will I stick to every goal I have set down? I will if I use the tools I have learned over the years on how to set truly transformational goals. Tools that have created some amazing outcomes over the years.
