Happy New Year! Time for fresh starts. New beginnings. Resolutions.
I admit, though, that I do better in quick bursts rather than a year-long project with long term goals. I like 30 Days. I can do 30 Days. And I find that I don’t fizzle out and go from excited and brimming with ideas and motivation to flat and back where I started without improvement. That’s the worst feeling. So I tackle projects for 30 Days (um, just in case that weren’t already obvious).
Around this time of year, though, people always ask me how I do it. How do I set up a 30 Day Challenge? How do I get started? Do I have a plan? How do I make sure I’m successful? What happens when I mess up? When do I know when I’m finished?
I have found that I follow a basic structure, a solid plan in each of my 30 Day Challenges. It helps me make it through, and it makes sure I come out having learned something if not bettered myself and my life. Because that’s the whole point of pushing yourself like this. I’ve never actually put my plans into writing, but I totally should have by now.
So for these 30 Days, I am going to write out my plan, my steps and foundation to any 30 Day Challenge. I’ll share my resources, my tools, tricks, motivation, what I’ve tried that doesn’t work at all. A 30 Days of 30 Days, if you will. And you can work on your own 30 Day Challenge, or jump start your 2014 resolution if you’re awesome like that, as I guide you through my world of goals and challenges.
And because my life doesn’t feel quite productive without my own goals, I’m going to get up before sunrise for the next 30 Days. Check out Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter for all my early morning progress this month.
