It’s been just over a month since I embarked on my challenge to take meaningful action every day for 100 days. Part of me is wishing I had set a shorter timeline for the project, because there are a lot of days when I just want to sit my butt on the couch instead of being purposefully productive. But I’m also pretty excited by how much I’ve gotten done in one month.
My action steps have been a combination of:
- creating a sense of home
- working towards career goals
- keeping promises
- taking care of tasks I’ve been procrastinating
Not every step has led to immediate or tangible results, but it’s still rewarding personally to know that I’ve actually been proactive about things like camp registrations. These little tasks are usually what I turn to on the days when I really, really want to just be done with this project already, because they don’t take much time or creative energy. Just a little push to keep the streak going, and I get to check something off the to-do list.
The fun stuff is more visual.
In the last month, I’ve reupholstered two chairs and made cushion covers for the living room. That room is slowly but surely coming together, and I’m actually excited to keeping working through my list of projects.
But perhaps the biggest success of my one month of action is the 25,000 or so words that I’ve written in the ebook. This is the most I’ve ever written for one piece, and I’m both overwhelmed and proud. I can’t wait to be able to share it all with you.
33 days down… 67 more to go.
