Quarterly Lederhosen Report Q2 2016 - Checking in on my New Year's Resolution

This is the quarterly check-in on the goals from my New Year's resolution. Just as a reminder, the idea was to choose targets that fulfill the S.M.A.R.T criteria: being specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-related. By making my goals public and checking-in regularly with you out there, I hoped to keep me motivated over the year to achieve all goals for 2016. And just in case this is not enough, I added a punishment on top, promising to go to work in original Bavarian Lederhosen on the first working day in 2017 if I miss more than one of the six goals for the year. Still pretty scary! So let's see where I am at the half-year mark of 2016.

Quarterly Lederhosen Report – Checking in on my goals for the year

After many years of New Year’s resolutions that lasted hardly longer than a few weeks, I wanted to do it all differently in the first full year of my Life-Sparring experience. Choosing targets that fulfill the S.M.A.R.T criteria: being specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-related to be effective; making my goals public; and checking in regularly with you out there hopefully is enough to keep me motivated all year to achieve all goals for 2016. And just in case this is not enough, I added a punishment on top, promising to go to work in original Bavarian Lederhosen on the first working day in 2017 if I miss more than one of the six goals for the year.  Scary!

So let’s see how I fared during the first quarter of the year!

Food for Thought - My Books of 2015

In this round of life-sparring I would like to present my personal top 5 books for 2015. The list might come a little too late to serve as a Christmas gift guide, but in case that you are looking for some fruit for thought over the holidays you might get some inspiration.
