It’s a new month and the start of a new challenge. Before I start on this one here’s a quick update on my challenge from last month.
The challenge I set myself for January was to finish writing my book. The update is that I didn’t finish and I haven’t written as much as I’d like but I’m so glad I set myself the challenge because I am much much further than I was or would’ve been had I not done this experiment.
The upshot is that setting yourself a deadline on things you’ve wanted to do, but put off for quite sometime, is the perfect way to give yourself the kick up the butt; how else are you going to get yourself to take action?
When you do the challenge make sure you tell people and get them to hold you accountable.
The main aim is to make progress. It doesn’t matter if you succeed or fail, just that you get started, keep going, and get as close to your target as you can.
With my book I’m nearly at the point where I’m ready to start sending sample chapters to publishers and that was more important to me than completing it.
Challenge For February
Initially, the challenge I wanted to do in February was observing 30 days of silence but because of the way things have unfolded and the extra shows I’m doing on my radio station, I’ve decided to postpone it until a later month.
So I had a think about a conversation I had with fellow comedian Hyde Panaser and also fellow blogger Arvind Devalia regarding encouraging other people to adopt this idea and concept of doing a 30 day challenge.
So I thought why not use February to see how many people I could get to sign up to doing a 30 day challenge for March. My goal is to get 1000 people to commit themselves to taking on a challenge for the Month of March.
Why not make a commitment and do something you really want to you? Is there a task you’ve put off and would like to accomplish?
Have you always had the idea of writing a book and never done it?
Do you want to lose a stone?
Have you been planning to de-clutter your house for the past 5 years?
Have you put off starting that small business you’ve always wanted to start?
Have been afraid to start voluntary work because you didn’t know where to begin?
Do you want to be paint drying watching champion? (Yep, they actually have that now!)
Whatever it is, use this opportunity to get started and I’ll be more than happy to support you.
I don’t want to create a tribe just for the sake of it. The whole point of this is I want to show you that you can make a massive shift in your life if it’s something that you’ve been meaning to do for a long time.
You will have to make sacrifices. You may need to put off a few smaller insignificant things (Like your children perhaps? 😀 [kidding]) but in the long run it will be truly worth it.
The other benefit of creating this tribe is so that you will get to know several people who are attempting the same thing as you and you will have the opportunity of supporting each other.
What are you waiting for?
