If you have built castles in the air,
your work need not be lost;
that is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.
--Henry David Thoreau
Okay, everyone. How did you do this past week with the 30 Day Challenge? Last Monday, when we all checked in, there were varying degrees of success with this new habit forming challenge. And it's exciting! You're making strides to improve something in your life on a permanent basis.
There's one thing I want to assure you. If you happen to miss a day or two, it's okay. Remember, you're just starting to develop this habit. Just join back in and focus on your end goal. Your dream. The short term goal you're working toward is Tuesday, June 19th. The last day check in day. The 30 Day mark. You're halfway there!
The long term goal is something you will benefit from for a long, long time. Something that will help you get to your dream. So keep at it. Pick up if you miss a day or two. Start back in. Remember, consistency is key to making this an automatic part of your life. You can totally do it!
Now here's how I did. I missed Saturday. We had too many things going on over the weekend and I slid. Would you believe I woke up in the middle of the night and remembered I forgot to do this? I stressed about it a tiny bit, not too much because next thing I knew it was morning. So I made up double time yesterday. I'm optimistic though as this is becoming more automatic for me. I'm no longer feeling dread on how I'm going to schedule my day to fit my new habit in. The bonus is my characters are more interesting; my plot tighter. At least I think so...
How did you do?
