Goals Visual Indicators

The Weekly and Daily Pie Charts have been upgraded to a Bar Chart

  • The graph is still divided by Facets
  • The thicker vertical lines represent the total time allocation for a Facet
    • The Habit time commitment for each Goals are grouped by Facets
  • Green bar is for the weekly proportion of time allocation you have recorded
  • Skin bar is for the daily proportion of time recorded
  • Bars reaching the 100% line means time spent working on goals 
  • Equal bars means Balance in proportion time spent.

 Facets with no goals or no action are not shown on the graph. 

12 Dec 2012 - The colors for the dashboard have been updated:

  1. Red shows what requires more attention (less than 75% completion over the past 7 days)
  2. Purple for new tasks in their first week
  3. Green for tasks that are completed to 100% of their target for the past 7 days
  4. Blue for tasks you have done Today

We have also simplified and streamlined the Record Event form (accessed from the green arrow) so that it takes less time to record an event.  

Thanks to your feedback!  Keep your comments coming !

Boosting Self Esteem with Martial Arts

 

Discussion on Sports effect on self-esteem

This question came up a few weeks ago on Yahoo Answers, which I like to review and occasionally answer questions from a holistic approach, mixed with a dose of science and personal experience. When my answer was chosen as the Best Answer, I was humbled, but glad and thought other people might benefit from the information it contained, so here it is:

Easy 10 points: Will this boost my self esteem and insecurness?

Hi, I'm 23 years old. I am, still am afraid of the world, just sligthly... 

I thinking of trying martial arts for a month or two to see how that goes. Because in my opinion, I find it very ideal knowing that I can find something that interests me since I am a very motivated person in doing the things I LIKE. 

And I'm not thinking of using martial arts in a sense of beating up someone who throws a punch at me, but only using it for really life threatening situations. Because honestly, everyone sees me as a very quiet, laid back, gentle individual. 

I already took an introductory course, and beforehand did research on which martial arts style to choose that I like. I also finally saved up money to take the lessons. 

And one thing I tend to notice about myself is if I'm paying for something out of my own pocket, I want to get my money's worth. So I WILL excersise. Any advice?

Best Answer - Chosen by Voters

Yes taking martial arts lessons will probably help your self-esteem and confidence. 

I did the same thing in my early twenties, and in addition to making me healthier and stronger, I started feeling better able to react to threatening situations. Just thinking and feeling safer made we look stronger and less likely to be attacked. Of course, you have to stick with the lessons for a little bit to get those benefits, so think positively about this, and make sure you enjoy your classes. 

Some clubs have different styles and approach, so it is worthwhile visiting a few before your actually join: some of them are more spiritual, some more about learning and performing the moves right, while others are more involved in sparring (physical combats with contact). All of them are good for you if you like that style and you will get the benefit of becoming stronger and getting better reactions even if you don't do full contact sparring. 

And finally, know why you are doing this, set realistic Goals with your instructor and Enjoy the journey !

There is no shortage of information and advice on Goals, Success and Happiness.  In addition to the information I have created or referred to in the Goal Interceptor Website, these are some of the best books I have read:

    • This is an excellent book about the power Habits to improving our lives, not only to reach a single goal, but to have a very productive life in general, as well as to be Happy.  
  • Brain Rules, Pear Press, John Medina
    • This book provides a simple and effective way to get more out of your thinking machine in our heads.  Ten simple to understand rules.  The book also includes a DVD to really make the points with some humouristic short stories.  
  • Managing Your Mind, Oxford, Gillian Butler, Ph.d, Tony Hope, MD
    • This book takes a a scientific-based approach to describing how we think, and how that affects our actions, thinking and emotions.  Very complete coverage of mental fitness, basic Mind skills, Relationships, Mood, Mind and Body.
