In a recent email to my list that I wrote about goal setting and the New Year, I issued a challenge:
What one single commitment can you make to yourself that we can promise to keep through the month of January into February (afterall it only takes 21 days to form a habit)?
I suggested making a list of the top three things that you wanted to accomplish this year and then outline the immediate next steps you need for only one of those three things and start to implement that. Start with the easiest so that there is a true sense of immediate accomplishment. (It might be as simple as remembering to drink more water throughout the day).
So here’s my incentive for you:
If you comment here, or on facebook or email me your single one thing that will help you raise your personal bar – something you’ve never done for yourself before and IF YOU STAY WITH IT through January (so 1/2/13 – 2/1/13) the first 5 of you who reach out to me will get a free gift from me and all of you will be entered into a drawing for $100 worth of Arbonne product.
These are some of the awesome responses I have had so far:
Me: Post at least one inspirational, thoughtful, fun, resourceful blogpost daily
Diane: I want to be a thank you note/card writer – I am committing to one a day
Deborah: My plan is to start a gratitude journal where I make a daily entry of at least three things I am grateful for and send a ‘thinking of you’ card to one person every month.
Donna: My goal is to run a 5K with my daughter, so I have begun the 10 minute trainer
Anne: I am going through old stuff 5 days a week and re-organizing old stuff or getting rid of them.
Rosemary: 20 minute daily meditation
Udie: write for 10-20 minutes daily
So will you join this little community of people who are committed to #RaisingTheBar?
I hope so, we’d love to have you!
Change is Constant, Embrace it
