To all my friends, relatives and acquaintances,
Lately I have been struggling with the comfort zone I am in and want to come out of it. There are goals which I thought I will achieve in my twenties but I am way behind of those. I have also realized that I am not alone and there are few others who are on the same page. Some already gave up and some don’t know what to do. Not only I want to work on my dreams and goals but I also want to help those who are having a hard time in achieving their goals.
Coincidentally, I was listening to Jocko Willink a couple of months ago and he was suggesting that one should make a public announcement on what you are working on because it pushes you to work on it and not procrastinate. I thought about it for a month and started posting my workout stories on Instagram and Facebook Page. I waited for a month because I had this fear that what if I will fail. But I gained enough courage to post my 1st workout story and I never stopped. And it worked, I have been consistent for 27 days now, and it never happened before. I am feeling physically better. Also, I am getting messages from people, whom I have not heard for years, appreciating the work I am putting on, which is motivating me to do more.
And so here I am making another announcement. I am listing the things I will be working on next 365 days that is until September 1st, 2020. It will be for three kinds of people I know, one who are struggling to work on their physique, one who are struggling with their job and those who wants to start their own business but don’t know how to get started.
My Goals will be –
1. To achieve new physical limits.
a. Finishing a Marathon in less than 4 hours.
b. Finishing an Ironman 70.3 (Half Triathlon)
c. Finishing an Ironman (Full Triathlon)
2. Pushing my mental limits.
a. My goal will be to deliver more than what is expected at Job (Sio Digital).
b. Come up with new innovations for the growth of the company.
c. Bringing more credibility for me and SiOhub division of the company, because I believe in the vision of the company and the person who is backing it, Giovanni Letellier.
3. Working on my passion
a. Helping my parents with their two businesses in India – Synkrama Technologies and Prensan Marketing and bringing their dream into reality by employing at least 10 people.
b. Helping my mentor, Dr. Wood, in bringing awareness about Equity, Unconscious Bias and Racial Microaggression via CORA Learning platform.
I will be posting updates on regular basis on my website iamkaranjain.com and at multiple platforms like, my Facebook page, YouTube and Instagram. I will also feed relevant content to my Linkedin profile, Quora and on Twitter.
P.S. – It will be difficult to achieve all these goals and I might fail. If I could achieve these goals then it might help you to achieve your goals. And if I won’t then I will learn my lesson from the mistakes and will start all over again.
