On New Year’s Eve, you got caught up in the hype and you set some goals, probably lofty ones, for 2015. Now that the glitter has fallen off and the
champagne sparkling cider has gotten flat, how do you meet these goals?
- Financial Challenge: Start with $1 per week and add an extra dollar every week to the deposit. (I am connecting this to my personal savings for a scholarship I fund at my elementary school in Jamaica and am looking forward to saving little by little towards sending someone to school)
- Closet De-cluttering Challenge: Every quarter (or when the seasons change), start by taking all your clothes out of the closet. Only replace the things that bring you joy and that fit you properly. Donate the others to someone who needs it more than you do. (I did this a few months ago and again last week. It really simplifies things when all the things around me are things I want and love)
- Gratitude Challenge: Reserve 5 minutes every day to record something that you are thankful for.
- AOK Challenge: Perform one random act of kindness every day. It could be giving something, it could be saying something – it doesn’t have to cost you anything to be kind.
- Mentoring Challenge: Choose a mentee – a child, a college graduate, a young person who just started working – and make a commitment to reach out that person at least once a week to show them you care, offer advice, teach them a valuable skill, introduce them to someone who can help, etc.
I’ll be posting my full 2015 vision/plans later but these are just some of the challenges that help me work on achieving my goals.
Would you join me on any of these challenges?
