Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must first be overcome.
Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.

Okay, you asked for it! Now, you've got it. The 2009 New Year 30 Day Challenge starts today! Right now!
There's nothing like starting off the New Year with optimism and purpose to start a new habit that will give us the strength and the ability to do things no matter what. It's these small steps that will get us determined and motivated to get to the big steps. And I want to help you get there.
I was trying to figure out what I'd like to do in this next 30 days. At first it was going to be writing related, but that goes without saying. Instead, mine is going to be all about ORGANIZATION. Which I sorely need.
And if I want 2009 to be the best year ever, I need to get a serious handle on organization...like paperwork, cleaning out closets, getting rid of clutter. So, every day, I need to do something that will get me ahead in the organization game.
What about you?
I really hope you'll join me in this 2009 New Year 30-Day Challenge. It's always more fun when other people are motivated and encouraged to go on an adventure. So, here are the rules...
2009 New Year 30 Day Challenge Rules:
1. The Challenge starts today! Write a quick comment below. Tell me what new habit you'd like to work on. This can be as short as one sentence or as long as you'd like.
2. If you're going the distance for this 30 Day Challenge, it's important to check in every week via comment with a very quick report on your progress. I find accountability works wonders to keep me on track. So I'm hoping it will do the same for you. Only those who are accountable to their goals and report in every week will be considered for the grand prize.
The 5 dates to check in are:
Today, Monday, January 5th (first day of challenge): Be specific on what you'd like to do to work on your new habit.
Monday, January 12th
Monday, January 19th
Monday, January 26th
Monday, February 2nd (last check in day for simplicity's sake)
But...if you're really committed to go to 30 days, check in again on Wednesday, February 4th--the official end date
3. The winner will be announced on Friday, February 6th. I'm not sure about what the prize will be yet, but will let you know as soon as I have it figured out.
I hope you're ready to join in and have some fun.
Ready. Set. Go!
Comment away. It's going to be a great year!
