Wahoo – ten days of blogging completed! It feels so great to realise that this time I lasted the distance and finished the challenge. I’ll admit it wasn’t easy to sit down every night to do my ‘homework’ – but the hardest part was actually starting. Once I began putting ‘pen to paper’ the ideas and words flowed, and the blog was finished before I knew it.
The challenge I enjoyed the most was finding my why. Taking the time to re-examine the reasons why I want a freedom lifestyle and what is motivating me to develop a freedom plan reinforced for me the value of what I was trying to achieve. I’m actually going to print off that blog and put it on the wall of my working area to serve as a reminder when things get difficult and I feel as if I’m getting stuck again.
The biggest take away I got from this challenge was the sense of personal achievement – seeing it through to the end and not giving up. The thing I realised this time round was the importance of staying on track and not allowing myself to fall behind. Not only did completing the blog daily feel good, it also created a feeling of momentum which can’t happen when you’re trying to catch up all the time. In addition, a positive side effect was increased motivation to pick up other projects. I feel like I’m back on track and can start moving forward again.
My goal is to meet my commitment of working an hour a day and finish my program structure and content by 29 October 2016. Having signed up to Natalie’s Freedom Plan last year and stalling half way through due to a lack of product, I now feel that I’ll be able to pick up where I left off and benefit as a result. I’m going to use the momentum I’ve gained from this challenge to make my freedom plan happen.
