The 100 Day Adventure - Fining my direction

The 100 Day Adventure

Posted: July 4, 2016 by The Mature Man

Well, today is the beginning of my 100 day adventure. At least that is what I am calling it anyway. 100 days or what may be the hardest thing that I have ever tried in my life, or perhaps will be 100 days of the easiest. Time will tell which one.

Eat That Frog - Book on ProcratinationI have read a lot of posts lately which speak of how someone go about defining goals, stop procrastinating on EVERYTHING, and get back on track. I am a huge (say it like Donald Trump) fan of procrastination. I’m not sure who I get it from, or perhaps I grew the trait on my own. (wishing that I could blame on someone else)

Anyway, I love to put off till next month, what I can get done today in five minutes. Yes, it’s that bad, really.

Doesn’t really what it is either. It can be starting a diet (more on that later). It can be doing accounting for my business, I don’t even want to dig into that just yet. It can be filing (yes, been known to hide files), and organizing documents.

My procrastination can be something as challenging as taxes, light as taking things to Goodwill, making dinner plans for a Birthday, doesn’t matter. You name it, if I can put it off till later, I will put it off till the last panic-filled minute.

So, now I am at yet another crossroads, and I am trying to take all the feedback from these articles, and I am trying something, an experiment.

I have put in my calendar the following items for the next 100 days.

Trader Joes Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter CupsFirst, it’s time for me to get back to the gym. Do something other than work on the computer all day, watching my butt grow with every Trader Joe’s chocolate peanut butter cup.

I have put in my calendar, starting tomorrow at 5 a.m. that I will be at the gym for about two hours. That’s a fair amount of time for me since it allows me time to get there and back. I have that in my calendar for the next 100 days.

Yes, I know some would say that is too lofty a goal, but I am going to take the advice of an article I read just this morning. It said to disregard the reasons that I can’t set it as a goal, and just tell myself that you know that it can be done.

Second, and most interesting is the goals that I put in the calendar actually yesterday. 100 days of blog posts!

Yes, I am not only just getting started with this blog, but I am even going to challenge myself to 100 straight days of posts.

Now, for me that will be a lofty goal, 100 days straight. Not only do I have this new blog, but I have one that I have resurrected (more on that later), plus one for my business.

OK, there you have it, the goals that I have set for myself. Did I take on too much, what do you think? Have you ever tried this method before yourself?

If you have, drop me a note below in the comment section, and let me know how you did?

If you haven’t, and you want to start a 100 day challenge with me,  tell me. Or, if you are just now reading this days, or months later, just jump in.

Put it out into the world that you are getting started. Don’t forget to put the goal in the section below, they say it helps keep you on track. We will all cheer each other on, making it 100 days, or perhaps more…..?
