Is there something you’ve always meant to do, wanted to do, but just … haven’t? Matt Cutts suggests: Try it for 30 days. This short, lighthearted talk offers a neat way to think about setting and achieving goals.

As those closest to me will know, I’ve always wanted to do more – and for me, a small but significant part of that is to create meaning in the work I do.ย In 2006 this video by Guy Kawasaki really inspired me. It’s now available on Youtube…

Your Web AddiCT has been living his life in this way (and continues to try), but at some point, he got distracted by shiny things. Thankfully, my friend Fahamu Pecou reminds us that all that glitters aint goals.

For years there’s been a conflict brewing in my mind… andย with obfuscation created by others, I realised that I was indirectly creating my own challenges. Mostly, it was resistance out of fear for facing my true calling: the real reason I’m here, living my 5th life ๐Ÿ˜‰

My #30daychallenge:

  • Create something meaningful that is sustainable, adds value to those I work with, and is built on the foundation of notย treating people like objects and objects like people.
  • Utilising only the resources previously written about or covered on this blog.
  • Working only with people I’ve met through this blog.
  • Document each day here.
  • The result of this #30daychallenge will be announced in a Linkedin update in 30 days.

The catalysts: This I am not a commodity article by Nic Haralambous and a book, The War of Art gifted to me by someone I’m proud to call my mentor: Marcia Conner.

A succinct, engaging, and practical guide for succeeding in any creative sphere, The War of Art is nothing less than Sun-Tzu for the soul. What keeps so many of us from doing what we long to do? Why is there a naysayer within? How can we avoid the roadblocks of any creative endeavorโ€”be it starting up a dream business venture, writing a novel, or painting a masterpiece? Bestselling novelist Steven Pressfield identifies the enemy that every one of us must face, outlines a battle plan to conquer this internal foe, then pinpoints just how to achieve the greatest success. The War of Art emphasizes the resolve needed to recognize and overcome the obstacles of ambition and then effectively shows how to reach the highest level of creative discipline. Think of it as tough love . . . for yourself. Whether an artist, writer or business person, this simple, personal, and no-nonsense book will inspire you to seize the potential of your life

Have you ever done a #30daychallenge before? What was your experience like? Over the years, I’ve worked with others to help drive change in their lives. It’s time to drink my own kool-aid and go change mine in 30 days. Coming along?
