You may notice a change in the header today. After trying to figure out the insurance issue with the school district I was informed that the district self insures and cannot include CrossFit in the insurance policy since there isn't one. I had to pull the affiliation paperwork. Now, the only way for me to officially affiliate is to pay for insurance out of my own pocket. That isn't going to happen since this was to be a nonprofit affiliate and the school district is trying to cut my(the teachers) already small paycheck. Hopefully when the CrossFit RRG is approved I might be able to afford affiliate insurance and I'll try again.
All that being said, nothing will change about the site. I will still post WOD's, fitness education and my thoughts but I won't call it CrossFit.

Saturday, January 2

The new year started yesterday and lots of people made resolutions that they will probably break today. Forget about resolutions. Take 10 minutes today to set achievable, measurable goals and a success date. All three things are very important and if one is missing it's unlikely to happen.
Let's use running a 4 minute mile as an example of a goal.

Is it Achievable? If you have never broken 12 minutes for a mile going sub 4 is unlikely, even in a year's training. Can you run a 5-6 minute mile now? Possible, so that will work.

Is it Measurable? As long as you have a timing device determining whether or not you run a 4 minute mile is measurable. A goal of "being nicer to my little sister" is to vague and not measurable. To make that measurable the goal should be adjusted to "play with my little sister 3 times a week" You can easily determine if you played with your sister 3 times in a week and that would probably achieve the desired result of being nicer.

Does it have a success date? When do you want to succeed? Without a firm date of completion you have no accountability for the goals you set, your goal is just floating in the wind without any direction. I can set a goal to make a million dollars but without a success date it might take me 40 years. Which is better $1,000,000 in 6 months or in 40 years. If I say 6 months I will have to work  my butt off to succeed or I can mess around and make $25,000 a year for 40 years. Set a success date for every goal you set and make it  a challenge.

You may find that as you work towards your goals that you set the bar to low for yourself. There is nothing wrong with changing your goals as you go just don't make them easier because you found it too tough.
  
WOD
Set 5 goals.Post goals to comments. Also, write them down and put the paper where you will see it often throughout the day.  Share your goals with your friends and family. Monitor your progress toward achieving your goals and make sure you are on track to meet or exceed them.
Remember, "Failure to Plan is Planing to fail."
