character resume challenge week 3

It’s Week 3 of the Character Resume Challenge! This week, our focus is on Values!

I believe that identifying your values are the most important activities you’ll do in the Character Resume Challenge. Your values guide most of your actions and decisions on a daily basis. Conflicts in your life usually center around your values.

Here’s an example…for those that know me and/or subscribe to this blog, I am obsessed with working out (Fitness/Health is my #1 Value). I’ve kept track of EVERY workout I’ve done since January 2, 2000 – that’s right, for 22+ years! Yes, I know every workout I’ve done every day for over 22 years! Is that slightly obsessive?

I set yearly movement goals, usually 1,000 miles running/walking/elliptical and 3,000 miles biking/indoor cycling. Since this is my last year in my 50’s, I decided to try increase my standard goal – 1,200 miles running/walking/elliptical and 3,400 miles biking/indoor cycling. I also added two additional goals – 15,000 push-ups and sit-ups and 7.25 million steps. At the half-way point of the year, I have achieved:

  • 670 miles running/walking/elliptical
  • 1,727 miles biking/indoor cycling
  • 8,140 push-ups and sit-ups
  • 3,734,654 steps

So far, so good. But I still have 26 more weeks to go, so I have to keep on moving. (P.S. I think I’m going to see different fitness/exercise goals for my 60’s; this is getting REALLY hard to maintain almost every day!)

  1. Wow, Bill! It would take me a whole year to get in the shape needed to act like I could set a fitness goal with you. Good luck with that!

    • Thanks Lucky! Yes, it’s a pretty crazy goal…but challenges and one-year targets seems to be the best way for me to stay focused! Start small…one push-up a day – and by the end of the year, I bet you’ll be doing 20 or 30 at a time!
