My 2019 1Q 3 Month Targets (confidence level/result/assessment)

Summary: overall I met (79+100+45+100+45)/5 = 74% of my 3 month targets

1. Objective: Be Fit (79%)

Key result: Recovery (67%)

  • Wake without an alarm daily (low/2 days a wk/71%)
  • Two athletic recovery days a week (high/100%)

Key Result: Eliminate Unnecessary Stressors (69%)

Measure: Eliminate Chemical Stressors

Eliminate Medication
  • Eliminate Allegra and Zyrtec. (low/unmet/0%)

  • Stay in the NMMG conversation. (medium/not recently/0% — thinking about it doesn’t count)

Key Result: Return to running post-surgery (100%)


Training plan — Since I’m basically beginning as a new runner again, I’m taking on Dr. Phil Maffetone’s aerobic approach to training while I increase my mileage and return to strength and power training (Wednesday workouts with Rogue Running). Still following this plan: 100%

Training schedule — Run/walk 4 or 5 days a week, 20 weekly miles or so: (medium/average last 4 weeks = 19.75/100%)

  • M 3-4 miles with strides
  • T 3-4 miles or off
  • W 4-6 miles progressively harder with the Rogue Morning Show
  • Th 3-4 miles

Targets set 12 Months ago as First Quarter 2018 Goals

Summary: overall, I met 58% of my 12-month goals.

1. Reduce Allergy Symptoms And Medication Use

My new goal will be to see if I can find a allergy drug cocktail that includes fewer allergy medications. I spoke with my doctor’s staff and this is what they suggested. Unfortunately, they’re unable to present a clear and distinct path to follow. Scientific method, here we come. I am my own favorite science experiment!

Assessment: Reduced to 2 consistently, when I’m good with my diet/100%

2. Run Faster And Qualify for Boston Marathon

Still returning to fitness and running — 0%

4. Help Others And Receive Their Endorsement

75% successful, as measured on business goals

Hi, I’m Dylan Cornelius.

I’ve spent my career helping Fortune 500 companies build custom products and change the lives of their employees and customers.

Now I teach people everywhere how to get great results, manage change, and change their lives, with product development, continuous improvement, and agile management practices of the best businesses.

It can work for self development, life problems, your fitness plan, and chronic illness. Of course, it can even help at work.

I was the first son of a new teen mom. By the time I was 2, she was a single mom of 2, living with her parents and working a retail job as a cashier at a pharmacy. She remarried by the time I was 4.

My stepfather adopted me and my brother. He worked in construction 7 days a week to support the family.

Throughout my childhood, I learned firsthand the value of hard work. I was first in my family to do many things, and I’ve often done them the hard way: college on student loans while living on campus at UC Berkeley, an MBA while working full time. Later in life I ran a marathon, then 4 more and counting… I’ve learned multiple definitions of ‘healthy diet plan’, first as I lost 50 pounds, then again after I earned an autoimmune diagnosis.

In graduate school, I concentrated in “Management of Innovation” — after all, I worked in Silicon Valley, and I’d grown up just down the road! It was there I learned we don’t have to work so hard, (but it helps)!

We don’t have to rely on trial and error or hope, or just settle for less than we really want.

There’s a better way to get great results and change your life.

Let me show you how to manage change, get great results, and change your life with product development, continuous improvement, and agile management practices of the best businesses.
