I thrive on writing challenges.
From the first WordPress Blogging University courses to NaNoWriMo‘s (50K words in 30 days) and to the A to Z Challenge (26 themed post during the month of April), writing challenges get my juices flowing. During the last A to Z Challenge, I pushed myself hard to finish the day’s letter of the alphabet before the clock struck midnight and though I was running on fumes, the sense of accomplishment each night and exchanging with other WP participants kept me going. It was almost like magic.
But now, I want to thrive on “life enhancement” challenges…
I tried to apply the challenge concept to my non-writing life with my 52 Things in 52 Weeks and though I did accomplish a number of items (and I still will), my list was more tasks and “to-do” driven.
So before the 2018 New Year crazy hype begins, I want to start focusing on developing 12 new habits life that will enhance my life by tackling 1 habit per month for 30 days in a row.
It supposedly takes 21 days to develop a habit so 30 days would solidly reinforce it, right?
Since the WP community is a great way to source other like-minded people with similar interests, I’m looking for a tribe of bloggers/writers who would like to join in with their own 12 challenges.
As a “tribe” (yes, I’m using that young hip and trendy word that is all over the internet machine) we would each post the habit we are going to slay for 30 days and the “why” behind it, we would support each other and then post about the lessons, successes and not-so-successful experiences on our respective blogs.
It could be any habit and does not have to relate to blogging and/or writing, for example, making your bed, leaving work on time to get home, reconnecting/connecting with a different friend via Bluetooth in the car as you drive home, giving up sugar, bringing your lunch to work every day…It could be anything YOU feel would make a difference in YOUR life.
NaNoWriMo will fit nicely into the Mircale Morning and #21earlydays since my plan is to write my 1,667 words early in the morning.
I’ll post more details about this #30DayChallenge next Tuesday.
If you were to join in with me, what would one your 12 items be?
