DECEMBER 2016 – 30 Day CHALLENGE #1

I will read one book a week and publish a maximum of 500 words per day

The four books for this month are:

  1. Achieve: Find Out Who You Are, What You Really Want, And How To Make It Happen
    -by Dr. Chris Friesen, Ph.D.
  2. The Coaching Habit: Say Less, Ask More & Change the Way You Lead Forever
    -by Michael Bungay Stanier
  3. Do More Great Work: Stop the Busywork. Start the Work That Matters.
    -by Michael Bungay Stanier
  4. Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers
    – by Tim Ferris

Writing every day isn’t going to be difficult, but keeping it under 500 words is. Having a word count limit will push me to keep things short, simple, and crispy.

The books that I’ve chosen this month have been selected to prime my mind with the upcoming year of challenges. Full disclosure, I’ve attempted this challenge before, but I always fall off the ball somewhere within the second week.

Not this time. 

The results that I will achieve by conquering this goal are as follows:

  • I will create a morning ritual in which I start my day off with my challenge.
  • With my writing, I will be able to convey my thoughts clearly and efficiently.
  • I will focus on “documenting” as my primary source of content as opposed to trying to create/develop some new concept every single time.
  • These four books will act as my guides for using this blog to self-develop myself into someone who is capable of undertaking 12 consecutive month-long challenges.
  • Writing daily will help me to figure out what exactly those challenges are.

The point of these challenges isn’t just to complete them, it’s to conquer THE FUCK out of them and show others that it’s possible to THRIVE through the struggles.

Why?

Because there’s a marked difference between coping and thriving–and I’ve been coping with life for far too long. The goal with this challenge, and any future challenge, is to take one step towards becoming the very best version of myself, 30 days at a time.
