Fresh Start: 12 Days of New Beginnings [Day 5: Technology & Social Media]

Fresh Start: 12 Days of New Beginnings [Day 5]

I’m going to make 12 fresh starts in 12 life areas over the next 12 days.

I don’t expect to succeed at everything, but I want to give a bunch of things a try. Join me!

Day 1: Personal Development

My Day 1 Fresh Start was to raise my weights in Body Pump class for biceps and shoulders.


✔ Raised weights on days I’ve had Pump class. My form has suffered and I’ve missed some reps at the end. But that’s to be expected!

Day 2: Health & Fitness

My Day 2 Fresh Start was to give up Smith’s Cheese & Onion Chips – at least for September.


✔ Now up to four days chip-sober! A record for me.

Day 3: Career & Business

My Day 3 Fresh Start was to begin planning out changes to my website’s homepage.


✔ Planned yesterday; creating a draft this weekend.

Day 4: Fun & Recreation

My Day 4 Fresh Start was to listen to more music – rather than only podcasts and audiobooks.


✔ Friday was an all-music iPod day. It was such fun – an instant mood lifter! I’m determined to have at least one all-music iPod day every week.

Day 5: Technology & Social Media

Today my fresh start is from category 1: To try something new.

I’ve just created a Facebook Professional Service Page, so I’m going to send my Facebook Profile friends a Page Suggestion.

I’ll let you know how I go tomorrow – when I’ll make my sixth fresh start in the Home life area.

What About You?

Think of your own Technology & Social Media goals and plans. In what area could you:

  • Start something new or try something you haven’t done, eaten, read, or experienced before
  • Give up something – maybe a habit that undermines you or an obligation that weighs you down
  • Do more of something – be specific about ‘more’, but don’t be overly-ambitious
  • Do less of something – be specific about ‘less’, but don’t be overly-ambitious

I hope you’ll choose something and join me!
