Flipping the calendar. Do we all ask the same two questions: “where did last month go?” And “what’s up next?” We rarely stop and say “what did I accomplish last month?” But when you take on a 30 day challenge, you do ask yourself this question. You are mindful, attentive to what you accomplished. I re-read my October challenge and I am proud to say I fared well. And a writing routine is beginning to settle. I guess I need 60 days instead of 30 to imbed a new habit in to my days.
And now it is November, and I am still energized by 30 day challenges. This month, I will continue to build on my previous writing challenges. I want to learn more from and about LinkedIn. Can it be as engaging and viral as Facebook? Can I create meaningful posts for my colleagues? When I share my thoughts there – who will show up in my life? Three posts a week. At some point thought, a challenge becomes a routine and I’m close. So it is time to commit to something completely different.
It needs to be simple, to be scaled in reality and if a day is missed, it is easy to start anew the next day. Join me! Here are some ideas to get your November challenge ideas flowing.
Listen to a new song, every day
Say Hello to a stranger, every day
Listen to a podcast instead of the news, every day
Say good morning and good night to your staff, every day

What can be so hard about 30 sit-ups for 30 days? We’ll see. What will you do?
