I’m Wick-Wick’ing All Over the Place!

ir I’m Wick-Wick’ing All Over the Place!For many who don’t know, wick-wick aka #wycwyc aka What You Can When You Can is a guide I wrote and revealed with Carla Birnberg final yr. The thought is straightforward: Cease ready for good and begin shifting towards your objectives any approach you’ll be able to. No extra excuses!

We wrote it with wholesome dwelling and weight reduction in thoughts as that’s the area of interest we each really feel probably the most snug in, however actually it may be utilized to any objective. For instance, listed here are some methods I’m making use of the #wycwyc philosophy for the issues I at present need to accomplish.

Aim: Keep Match and Get Stronger

Motion: Go to the health club 1 hour a day to exercise

#wycwyc means that is presently occurring at 5 a.m. each weekday. Going another time is simply not attainable proper now with work and the youngsters. So I do what I can once I can and get up early.

Aim: Study to play the guitar

Motion: Take 1 lesson every week and follow day by day.

#wycwyc means I take my lesson throughout lunch 1 day every week and apply every time I can. I don’t all the time get it in day-after-day however I depart the guitar out the place I can see, and once I catch myself ready for the microwave to complete or the youngsters to prepare I decide it up. Am I going to be an awesome musician at some point? I extremely doubt it however the one strategy to study is to apply, and so I do what I can once I can decide up the guitar at odd occasions.

Aim: Study a bit of French earlier than my journey to Montreal. (Extra on that quickly!)

Motion: Take classes on Duolingo.

Don’t chuckle at me, that is going to be slightly TMI however I’ve been taking my French classes within the rest room. Sure, as soon as a day I’ve to “go” so I usher in my telephone and run by means of the French lesson of the day. Once more, I’m not going to be fluent in one other language devoting solely 5-10 minutes a day however I’ll study some primary vocabulary and really feel a bit extra snug with the language earlier than my journey and that’s my aim.

All the things Counts

One of many largest classes I discovered reducing weight 10 years in the past was: all the things counts.

I was the kind of one that would hand over in the event that they couldn’t be good. I’d have all these grand plans and goals however as quickly as I’d hit a bit of adversity I’d stroll away not realizing that taking a child step ahead is best than not doing something in any respect or worse, sabotaging/punishing myself as a result of I couldn’t do what I assumed I wanted to do to succeed in that aim completely.

The #wycwyc strategy has helped me accomplish a lot solely as a result of I don’t let myself surrender. Once I needed to drop extra pounds I meals journaled and blogged till I hit my objective. Some weeks have been straightforward, some exhausting however I stayed the course and didn’t let myself stroll away.

Once I say it out loud it sounds silly. Why would you cease pursuing  a objective you set should you REALLY needed to realize it, however many people do. It’s straightforward to speak about attaining issues or shedding weight or getting wholesome or studying one thing new, however when push involves shove we permit ourselves to surrender.

I’ve achieved it so so many occasions.

Now if I actually need to do one thing, I do what I can once I can to make it occur. Pat myself on the again once I take a step ahead and forgive myself shortly if I didn’t.

(Word: This submit is ANOTHER instance of #wycwyc. I wanted to attend for the Husband to get off a convention name so he couldn’t assist with a technical drawback I used to be having. As an alternative of losing time on social media I wrote this. #wycwyc!) 🙂
