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
✔ Raised weights on days I’ve had Pump class, but with loss of form.
Day 2: Health & Fitness
My Day 2 Fresh Start was to give up Smith’s Cheese & Onion Chips – at least for September.
✔ Five days chip-sober and counting. However, there’s been a corresponding rise in chocolate consumption. Oops!
Day 3: Career & Business
My Day 3 Fresh Start was to refresh my website’s home page.
✔ Been working on a new home page this weekend. Will publish it tomorrow.
Day 4: Fun & Recreation
My Day 4 Fresh Start was to listen to more fun music – rather than only podcasts and audiobooks.
✔ Loved my all-music Friday and plan to make it a weekly treat.
Day 5: Technology & Social Media
Day 6: Home
Today my fresh start is from category 2: To get rid of something.
I have two printers in my home office because I haven’t made a decision about which one better meets my needs. Although I love technology, in most cases I’m not crazy about the way it looks – so my fresh start is to make a decision and get one of these beasts out of my work space.
I’ll let you know how I go tomorrow – when I’ll make my seventh fresh start – in the Personal Presentation life area.
What About You?
Think of your own Home 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!
