The one thing that will make 2013 a fantastic year

books 2013

I am not usually doing a summary at the end of the year, and I am not usually talking about what I’ll be doing the following year. I have many plans and I have many goals, but I am keeping most of them for myself. It’s not that they’re secret, but it seems to me that if I don’t talk about them, I’ll be more focused, and I’ll have a better chance of actually making it.

But, I want to share a few things with you. In 2013, starting in just a few days, I’ll be:

  • joining simple fitness habit
  • writing for 2 hours a day
  • reading for 2 hours a day, and
  • I’ll be publishing several books

That’s it.

I have been saying this for a long time, but I will finally start exercising again, and I will be focusing on eating healthy. I am a vegetarian, but that doesn’t mean that I’m a good chef or that I’m focused on eating what’s right for me. I am thinking of joining the simple fitness habit course, and my exercise of choice is running. I love running, but it seems that I am great at coming up with excuses that makes me do everything but exercise. I am going to remove all the excuses. I understand that the hardest thing about exercise is to start doing it. Once I am doing exercise regularly, the hardest thing is to stop.

That’s what I want.

I am still writing every single day. And I’ll continue to write every single day in 2013. But, instead of just write, I will add a timer so I know that I’ll write for at least 2 hours every day. This way I know I’ll get a lot of work done, and I know that I’ll become a better writer. At the moment, I’m using the pomodoro technique (working in batches of 25 minutes) to be more focused. I am writing several stories, both non-fiction and fiction. I’ll tell you more about it in 2013.

Amazing things will happen. 2012 was a year filled with exciting things. But, I didn’t read as much as I would have liked. I love reading, almost as much as I love writing, but like my excuses for not exercising, I have been adding excuses for not reading. I can’t explain why, but, it’s what happened in 2012.

The one thing

I know that I have many goals, and that I have just shared a few with you. But, the one thing that will make 2013 a fantastic year for me, is that I am going to learn how to create healthy habits. I’m going to create one habit at a time, I am going to use 30 days to create each habit. That’s my one thing for 2013.

  • I won’t start writing 2 hours a day.
  • I won’t start reading 2 hours a day.
  • I won’t start exercising a lot.
  • I won’t start eating healthy, and
  • I won’t start 2013 by publishing a book

I will start creating one habit at a time. That’s going to be one habit each month, and 12 new healthy habits for 2013. I am making my list right now. And I can’t wait to get started. 2013 is going to be a fantastic year.

The reason I am kind of hooked on habits, is that I understand that if I just keep focusing on the good things in life, I’ll be more happy than every before. I’ll be more productive, I’ll be more creative, and I’ll be having a lot more fun. I believe that every single person in my life will have a lot more fun too. And, that’s why I have been reading a lot about habits lately.

I recommend:

So, now that I have revealed my one thing for 2013, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

What’s your one thing for 2013?
