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. Starting to regain form, too.
Day 2: Health & Fitness
My Day 2 Fresh Start was to give up Smith’s Cheese & Onion Chips – at least for September.
✔ Six days chip-sober, but only just hanging in. Today I’m tired and headachy and feel that only C&O chips would make it better. Must. Resist. Chippies.
Day 3: Career & Business
My Day 3 Fresh Start was to refresh my website’s home page.
✔ Trying out a new home page. (Feedback very welcome – please leave a comment!)
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
My Day 6 Fresh Start was to decide which of the two printers in my home office were better for my needs, and to remove the other.
✖ I’ve had a late night and busy day, all with a headachy overlay, and I haven’t done anything about the printers. Tomorrow!
Day 7: Personal Presentation
Today my fresh start is from category 3: To do more of something. I’m going to focus more on my posture – holding my shoulders back, core muscles in, and chin up. Oh – and smiling!
I’ll let you know how I go tomorrow when I make my eighth fresh start – in the Happiness life area.
What About You?
Think of your own Personal Presentation 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!
