Day 64: Goal versus Skill - The Push Goal

I have been diligent in doing my Chalene Johnson 30 Day Challenge Assignments. I did get stuck on one of her ideas/assignments. The idea put forth: Is your push goal a skill? A skill is something you might need to achieve your push goal but in an of itself should not be the push goal.

Arguably my push goal of making a to do list for the next 356 days could be considered a skill.
I am leaving it as a push goal. My thought is this. How many people will give up after the 30 day challenge is over? How many people will be making their to do list 365 days from now? I would be there is quite a bit of a drop off. As I said from the very beginning. I know all my seconday resoltuion will be crossed of the list this year because of this one thing.

With that said I rewrote the push goal: It's a good before and after!

Before: Make a to do list for 365 days.
Rewrite: Make an effective TDL for 365 Days that includes babysteps to my push goal and secondary goals each of those day.

Less than 365 days from now I will be able to remove it from my list. I know making the TDL will be as natural as brushing my teeth.

On a healthy note - I have book club tonight. I usually overeat! Not tonight. I am taking healthy food full of flavor so I don't feel tempted by the bad stuff!

Please let me know if any of your bookclub members tell you that you're looking slimmer! I would love to know, and if they do, will you tell them what you are doing or do you want to wait until your 90 day challenge is complete?
