Whilst in personal training (PT) today I achieved a 27% reduction in time – I’m giving 15% to improved fitness and 12% to positivity and me setting a totally unrealistic target!
In January I set out on a new regime to improve my fitness. Lots of reasons for setbacks in 2010 – no excuses in 2011! 6 weeks ago it took me just under 27 mins to do the circuit – a mix of weights, crunches and running. Today I managed it in just over 19 mins!! Somewhere in between would have been realistic but I had the idea I wanted the number under 20mins!
I’m sure the fact that I set the target had an impact. If my PT had set the target I’m sure I’d have resisted and never have achieved what I did.
Just wondering at work if we allow others to set the unrealistic and stretching targets for themselves if we’ll all get more done?
