I have been enjoying “Steve Pavlina’s Personal Development Blog” and recently shared it with a friend. She pointed out to me his entry for April 30, 2005, “30 Days to Success” and then she suggested we try something similar. We have both watched the movie “The Secret” and been discussing The Law of Attraction. My friend has had some past successes with The Law of Attraction and has shared some of them with me. I am still a little uncertain about The Law of Attraction, but more about the implementation of it than the possibility of its existence.
Anyway, we have come up with our own 30-day challenge for the month of March. Each of us has set some ideas into motion, some goals, and will be accountable to each other throughout the month, hopefully seeing progress by March 31 in the appropriate areas of our lives.
I do not wish to share with the public all of my goals, but I will share this one:
- I will write a blog entry daily for the month of March. I will write about an important-to-me topic. My entry will be entertaining, supportive, and enlightening to my readers. Most importantly, each entry will be something I am pleased to have written for the public to read.
The reason behind this goal is that I want to get into the habit of writing daily. I have novels I want to finish and articles I want to write, yet I find it too easy to become distracted by life and not accomplish what I want. November will be National Novel Writing Month again and this time around I want to be able to write those 50,000 words in one month. Only by having the habit of daily writing will I stand a chance.
I doubt that 30 days will be long enough to make daily writing a habit. My past record tells me that it will take much, much longer than that to make it a habit. But it is a beginning. And you can track my progress here, since each day’s writing has to be posted on my blog or it does not count. Watch me grow!
