New Year’s Resolution – Stepping outside my comfort zone.
According to Forbes’ Magazine, just 8% of people achieve their New Years Resolution. Fortunately, for the last two years I’ve been fortunate enough to be part of that 8%. In 2013, I gave up hangovers with success; and in 2014 I stopped trying to act like I was Dan Blizerian, thinking I’m some sort of millionaire, after getting a full time job. So I’m good at this New Year Resolution stuff. So here’s the deal, 2015 I want to challenge myself!
“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” – Neale Donald Walsch.
I love this quote, mainly because it enforces the message if you’re willing to change, your life will change also. For years, I’ve been brandishing the quote to friends and colleagues suggesting they need to step out of their comfort zone, like I am some kind of motivational guru that can tell. It was only after a disastrous ‘date’ at the end of November, I realised, I’m living in my comfort zone… and well within it.
The Plan of Action
– 52 tasks outside my usual day to day activities
– 1 per week
– Documented each week
Thought I’d set some ground rules originally to stop this getting out of hand:
– Nothing involved with this should effect my professional work life
– Spending all my money, doesn’t constitute stepping out of my comfort zone.
– Nothing that effects my personal appearance (linked to the first rule)
– Any thing too risky, particularly with my life, will be binned.
Ideas are very welcome… Would you believe, I haven’t filled up all 52 weeks yet!
Week 1 and 2
So I’m covering week one by starting up this blog to document all the progress… Yes it counts, I’ve never done this before.
Week 2, I’ll be giving blood…
