Sometimes it’s easier to make several big life changes at the same time. That’s what I want to do, and I’ve given myself 90 days to make significant progress in 5 areas: changing my body, my relationship, my social life, my business – and becoming fluent in a new language.

Dating with Dignity has been doing a reality series with an amazing woman called Carolin Bennett, and I’ve seen so inspired by her that I decided to do my own 90 day Life Makeover and change my life in significant ways.
Carolin is being coached by Marni Battista towards a bunch of outcomes she wants to achieve by the end of June. I’m starting a bit later, actually I’m starting this week, so I’ll finish sometime mid-July. I have some outcomes and intentions I want to see happen in that timeframe, which I’ll be talking about and recording here.
Carolin is doing a daily video blog and writing a post twice a week, I believe. It helps that she’s stunningly beautiful (she just can’t see it YET), the camera loves her and she talks to it without a single stutter or stammer. I have no idea at the moment if I’m going to have the courage to appear on camera; I’d like to, just because I’m scared to, so we’ll see.
The five areas where I want to see significant, and specific, changes are: my body, my primary relationship, my social life, my business and progress with learning a new language. While I’ll be talking about specific actions I’ll be taking towards each goal over the next few days, part of my process will be changing my mindset in each of these areas so the actions become less about will-power and more about want-power.
I’ve been investigating a few tools to help me achieve my goals, and I’ll be talking about them along the way. I’ll be pulling ideas from several places as well – I want to look at the best-of-the-best in self improvement and choosing the ones that really help me the most.
I’m starting my 90 day process on Wednesday April 20th and completing it on Monday July 18th. There’s nothing particularly significant about those dates; we started a big holiday here on Monday night, and Tuesday involved a bit of sleeping-in – hence the Wednesday start.
Tomorrow I’ll be talking about my specific goals for my body and health and what changes I intend to make, and how.
