2015 is half over - where do you stand?

Tomorrow marks the end of the first half of the year. 181 days down; 184 days to go. (because there are more months with 31 days in the 2nd half of the year - and no February.) How are you doing on achieving your goals?

Little things done consistently add up to big things. You can move a mountain by moving a few stones each day.

25 push-ups a day doesn't seem like an outrageous number. In fact, once you get into "push-up shape" it's probably very easy to do. And if you've been doing 25 push-ups a day, you've done 4,525 push-ups so far this year.

Walking, jogging, or running a mile a day doesn't take long. And if you've been doing it you've now run 181 miles so far this year - about halfway from Phoenix to Los Angeles!

Anyone who can do over 4,500 push-ups, or who can run 181 miles, is in pretty good shape. A lot better shape than if they had spent the first 6 months of the year sitting on the couch! If you haven't done 4,500 push-ups so far this year, now's a great time to get started on the 2nd half of the year.

What mountain are you going to move this year, one little stone at a time?
