And watching Man v. Food. Richman is currently chomping his way through Syracuse's famous frittata. Impressive, but I couldn't handle all of that savory food at once.
This is much more up my alley:
Richman's journey to Voodoo Donut makes my mouth water just thinking about it. I could eat sweets all day long! Anyone up for a dirty snowball? Rumor has it people have been married in this donut shop - no need to travel far to look for your wedding cake!
I've been more productive than that today - class, meetings, tabling, gymming, job applying - you name it, I've done it! I was lucky enough to come home and unwind with lululemon's Ask a Goal Coacher live event. Did any of you attend? Did you learn more about your goals?
I even asked the host, Matt, a question: "How do you suggest the best way to map goals for the next five years of your life?"
Matt answered: It can vary depending on what inspires you. I like mind maps or a paragraph that describes my vision in 5 years. Visuals help a tonne too! - Matt
Mind map a la Art Beneath the Cotton Woods:
This is easily the most beautiful mind map I've seen, but mine might be a little more simplistic since I lack drawing skills. Nonetheless, I'm going to get started on mine asap.
Fill in the blank: I will __________ by _____.
These are my answers to lululemon's fill in the blanks. Some of them seem idealistic to me as of now, but I like to aim high, dream big and work for what I want.
- I will get a job by December 31,2010. I'm working hard on this goal on a daily basis, and plan to keep my strategies the same. I've created an Excel spreadsheet of where I've applied, when I sent my application in, and if I've heard back or followed up with the company. Some refer to this last statement as nerdy, but I'm proud of my organizational skills. My planner may or may not be color-coded.
- I will be more confident starting now. I think my nerves about my previous goal are getting in the way of this. As of now, I'm going to be more confident and in my abilities - or at least fake it til I make it!
- I will run outside more starting when the weather isn't so humid. I am the first to admit I'm terrible at running outside. I don't have much practice, and when I finally give it a go I get sweaty and uncomfortable and give up. When the weather drops to the low 70s, I'm going to take on the roads of Gainesville!
- I will become a more experienced cook starting now. While I love eating my dad's enchiladas or lasagna, I feel that reaching outside of my ability to bake or cook limited items is a must. I'll be attempting (and blogging) about my attempts to recreate Oh She Glows' Peanut Butter, Jam and Banana Breakfast Pizza and Kath's Smoked Salmon and Vegetable Frittata, to name a few.
If you had to fill in the blank, what would you write? You will ________ by ____. The possibilities are limitless!
