THE HUNDRED DAY CHALLENGE?
I would like to issue a challenge to anyone interested. The rules are easy and the results are amazing. In celebration of tomorrow (June 12th) which marks the end of my own hundred day challenge, I am sharing the wealth. Here's the background on it: Our son came home from his hundredth day of school party with a journal that said: "One hundred days ago, I couldn't write. Now I can sound out words and I can write. And I can make my fives the right way. I like school." OK, the spelling was a little choppier, but it struck us how he had gone from unable to read, write or do math, to being able to do all three in one hundred days. This got my husband thinking. If a Kindergartner can learn so much in 100 days, why not us? And he put himself on a hundred day challenge. Then he got me started, and I set the goal of working on "that book" I always intended to write...and 99 days later, I have made incredible headway on something that otherwise would have gone untouched. (Entire plot is outlined, book is named, characters established, and 55 pages of single spaced writing are completed.)
So here is the challenge: Choose a goal to work on daily for 100 days. It could be ANYTHING--healthier eating or exercise, taking a class of some sort, finishing an unfinished project, practicing patience or other attributes, learning a new skill, language, instrument, etc., reading books, cooking, playing with your kids, deepening spirituality, keeping up on your home, accomplishing a goal at work, taking time for yourself...you get the idea. Anything you would like to tackle for 100 days. Once you have chosen the goal, you simply make a conscientious effort to work on it daily for 100 days. THEN....report back on September 18th and share your success story!
Are you game??? My goal for my next 100 day challenge is to get 100 people on the challenge...so I hope you'll be willing to join Brian and I. Invite your friends and family too. In the comments, state your name and your goal, and from there it's up to you. I don't think you'll regret the decision to take this on!!!
