Post image for 2011 Weekly Update

My 2011 New Year’s Resolutions revealed rather ambitious goals.  These goals motivate me to be more determined to achieve these goals.  I know it won’t be easy and I expect there will be difficulties, but I am determined to succeed.  Every Friday, I will share my progress so you can see how I am doing.

Top 100 Personal Finance BlogsI want to be part of the WISEBREAD Top 100 Personal Finance Blogs.  I am using Open Site Explorer (OSE), which is a link popularity checker and backlink analysis tool.  You will notice the OSE figures did not change, I believe they change monthly.  In addition, I am using Alexa Ranking to check my progress.

Below are my figures compared to the WISEBREAD Top 100 Personal Financial Blogs (#100 OSE results) and krantcents figures as of Jan 1, 2011[..]:

Increase workouts – Increase workouts from two (2) times a week to three (3) times a week.

I continue to ride my stationary (magnetic indoor trainer) bicycle twice (Tuesday/Thursday) during the week.  I am continuing reading which makes the exercising go by really fast.  If you are interested, I finished six (6) books already. This week, I still reading The Millionaire Mind by Thomas J. Stanley, Ph.D

Be more patient – In the past, I used my impatience to drive myself to reach goals faster and better.

My journal revealed there are two kinds of situations where I become impatient.  One is when things move too slowly which causes frustration and impatience.  Taking action or usually resolves those feelings.  The other is unrealistic expectations of people or my students.  Taking a moment to breathe, understanding everyone does not move or learn at the same pace. This is still a work in progress for me to slow down and focus on the progress of my efforts.  I am starting to see some positive results, where I used to immediately become impatient with someone, I am more in control of myself.  I have not achieved the goal, however I do see some progress.

Great goals and great progress. Very ambitious. Reminds me; I’ve gotta post on how I’m doing on my goals!

Congrats on the progress, and thanks for coming and commenting. And if you figure out how to become a more patient person for good, I’m all ears. I also struggle with unrealistic expectations and the need to have something done NOW.

Thanks, keeping the journal of the triggers was immensely helpful. It made me realize what causes my impatience. In the past I used my impatience to take action. What I did not realize is there are several kinds of impatience. I was only resolving one kind. I learning new tricks to deal with the various situations. Identifying the problem versus just stating my reaction is the first step.
