Today is September 5th, most of 2018 is already in the past, and it's almost time to go and wake up the Green Day guy.
But there are still 117 days left in the year. That's 100 days + 17 Sundays. That means there's still time to complete a nice little 100-day challenge by the end of the year while taking a day off each week to recharge your batteries. What are you going to work on for 100 days by the end of the year?
Have trouble deciding? Fast-forward to January 1st, 2019 for a few moments, imagine you're writing a "2018 Year in Review" post for your blog or social media account. What would you like to add to your list of accomplishments? If you're anything like me, there are probably dozens of items that you'd like to add to your list, but try to choose one of them and work on it consistently for 100 days; your future self will really appreciate it.
Need some inspiration? Google "100-day challenge" or spend a few minutes (but only a few minutes!) watching 100-day challenge videos on YouTube. You can start a business in 100 days, you can build and ship a product in 100 days, you can finish 5 or 6 books by just reading 10 to 15 pages a day. Just find the thing, and do the work.
I hope you find some motivation in this post, and if you already know what you're going to do with the rest of your year, please share with the rest of us!
The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
(cliché, I know, but still very much true!)
