“Committed to Getting Sh*t Done” 100 Day Challenge.
I’ve started another challenge! “Committed to Getting Sh*t Done” challenge.
The last challenge was all about building habits and putting myself out there, my work, in whatever way it was possible for me, consistently, every single day for 100 days. It was about showing up for myself for my daily workouts every single day, no matter how I felt, taking what I had and making the most out of it. It was about building commitment muscle, it was about building self-confidence and self-trust.
What’s this challenge is all about?
Well, now, that I know I can commit and show up for myself — it’s time to do something with this skill, it’s time to start showing up for the world and people, to start building something, start achieving measurable results in a world, where you can’t predict or be sure of anything — except for your own ability and determination to persevere and make things happen. Daily. It’s time to set goals and exceed them, pass them and achieve more, than you thought was possible. Than anyone thought was possible.
The challenge is about getting shit done the way I said I’d do it. Or better.
Here is my challenge. You can see what I’m up to for the next 100 days.
Why do we do challenges at all? Why are they so popular as a self-development, achievement strategy?
Because without a challenge we slide back to the level of our lazy self.
There are 2 kinds of challenges, that make us grow — in any area.
First one is challenges, that are presented to us by the world — we need to make a living, we need to take care of our families, we need to take care of ourselves, when we get sick, we need to study to get a job, we need to look good to be liked and get laid etc.
And those kind of challenges, challenges related to our survival, survival of our tribe, become a rare occasion — hooray to era of abundance, where less and less people are motivated to do anything with their life, except pursuing entertainment, or earning more “success” to get more and “better” entertainment.
The second kind of challenges is the one we create for ourselves by consciously deciding, that we want more of this world and of ourselves than entertainment — we want to transform ourselves into someone, we know we can be, someone, we know we want to be, someone, we didn’t know we could be. Deciding, that we want to make a dent in the world, we want to make it better, because we were here, in some way, our way — we all have unique talents, that the world needs, nobody is here for no reason.
And that’s how we overcome our by-default laziness. We rise to the challenge. We grow on demand — from the world outside or the world inside.
The biggest growth, biggest transformation happens, when we decide to commit to the challenge we choose, fighting the battle we choose.
And if we have no challenges?
We slowly degrade to our worst self, indulging in self-destructive behaviors or, in the best case scenario, we stay the same and start slowly dying inside, rottening, wondering why life gets so blend, uninteresting, complicated and overwhelming.
Taking challenges with goals we can measure, with results we can touch, see and feel clearly, using our laser-focused mind and iron-grip commitment, transforms us into the kind of person, who gets to live the life we dream about.
The hero’s life. The journey.
The World is your playground now…
