How do you get from where you are to where you want to be in life? Well for me what works best is taking small steps towards my goals.
When I was growing up I loved music and wanted to learn to play the guitar. I was fortunate enough to get a guitar for my birthday one year but then it was up to me to learn how to play it.
How did I learn how to play?
Well, I listened to a song I wanted to play on repeat and would slowly test notes on the guitar until I found the right one and would repeat the process over and over again until I would eventually learn the song.
As I repeated this process I got to the point where I could hear a song and figure out how to play it within a few minutes.
“Repetition is the mother of all skill”
This is a concept I practice to this day. If I want to learn something I break it into small chunks and consume information on how to do it then do it, learn from it, and adjust.
This brings me to my point, last year I started doing 30-day challenges to help me get closer to my goals. I loved it so much that I have decided to do it again this year but instead of calling them 30-day challenges, I’m calling them Monthly Challenges since they’ll start and end with the months.
My goals this year are focused on health and to learn to market better. Here are my Monthly Challenges for the first half of the year.
- Jan – Meditation Every Morning – Learn Clarity and Focus
- Feb – Short YouTube Video Every Day. Learn to find my voice and storytelling.
- Mar – Facebook and YouTube video Ads Testing.
- Apr – Limit meat intake to 3 times per week.
- May – Listen or read a Blinkist everyday
- June – No challenge, take a vacation
