21 Day Challenge

There are some things in my life that are out of balance.  I work to much and play to little.  I have crafts I want to spend time on, yet struggle to do so.  There are goals I'd like to hit around my fitness and running - but am a long way off.

I think we've all heard the saying that it takes 21 days to make or break a habit.  There are 21 day challenges out there for everything - to lose weight, to become effective leaders, to make money.  You name it, someone has created a program, packaged it up and sold it on to many consumers looking for a way to achieve their dream (whatever it may be).

I've decided I'm going to take my own 21 day challenge.  For the next 21 days I'm going to blog - every day.  There are lots of things I want to change in my life.  Actions around my diet & health, actions around my time management and commitment to fun in my life, actions around my crafty hobbies.  The reality is I'm hesitant to do any of them, knowing my busy schedule and how I usually wimp out of any challenge about a week or so in to it.

Will the 21 day challenge work for me?  Will I create new habits and form new patterns in my behaviour?  I have no idea - but today is day 1 so let's let the journey begin.

Are you interested in doing a 21 day challenge with me?  Pick anything you like and join me here by commenting (and posting to your blog).  Let's see whether this 21 day thing really works or not.


  1. My 21 day challenge is to make a post on every one of your 21 day blog posts ;)

    Any long haul flights in the next 21 days that may make your task more difficult?

    Time poor? Lets aim to retire early. Then we can sit around drinking wine and talk about life changes ;)

  2. ha ha ha. Yes I'm off to India later this month so the challenge will be real. I'm also overloaded with work.
