If you’re not truly committed, New Year’s resolutions can fall through almost as soon as you make them.

And that’s the reason why I no longer make them, at least not for January 1st.

While diving into my 2017 Passion Planner, it occurred to me that I could approach my new year’s goals in a different but more fun and effective way.

You see, “writing challenges” have always put some wind in the sails of my creative writing, whether it be  WordPress courses, NaNoWriMo, NaBloPoMo, or the A to Z Challenge. And all of those challenges have helped me to strive forwards towards the writing goals I have set for myself.

That’s when the idea hit me.

Why can’t I take the concept of “challenges” and apply them to my 2017 goals with a little #badass sprinkled on top for good measure?

Of course, there is no such thing as a “new” idea so when I did some googling, I wasn’t surprised to see that there are a number of blogs that have tackled/are tackling the same challenge based on Kincavel Korner‘s 52 Things In 52 Weeks.

In addition to Kincavel Korner‘s 52 Things In 52 Weeks, below are a few other blogs that are providing inspiration for me:

I’m in the process of creating a new Page (under construction) dedicated to my own list of 52 things, based on travel, health, writing, spirituality, simplifying life and personal development.

Feel free to join me on this ride but wouldn’t it be even better if you created your own list?

I’d love to have some company!

  1. Last year I did a variation of this …. I called it 52 New Things. My objective was simply to challenge myself to constantly try new things – even something simple like a food I had never tried before. If you are interested, this was my recap of the year

    https://mylifelivedfull.wordpress.com/2015/12/31/2015-52-new-things-come-to-an-end/

    I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to add a little adventure and life into the new year.
    … and yes, I did continue it in 2016 in a slightly different form, but just as much fun.

    Good luck with your list and I hope you have lots of fun with it 🙂
