Set Yourself A Challenge

by DanM in Blog Post No Comments

When was the last time you set yourself a challenge, one that was actually hard-as-fuck to achieve, and would involve a little bit of blood, sweat, tears, or a degree of sacrifice?

For me, its been a little while.

Which is why a few weeks ago I got together a group of 5 folks (yours truly included) for an informal FB group – no cash, just people who are all at about the same level of biz, but in different niches and with different skills.

One of the group suggested we have a weekly challenge and I thought this was a great idea.

Some of us set financial goals…

Some of us set creative goals…

Mine?

I have 1 week to write 10,000 words.

So today is gone – I now have to write around 1750-2000 words a day.

Every day!

IS the world going to end if I don’t?

Is it balls?

But I know that each one of us IS holding the other accountable – its why I made the EXTRA accountability group for ‘Espresso With Dan’ as social accountability is SO important.

That, and I think its beyond easy to coast.

People are always looking for the lazy way out.

‘boo hoo this work is too hard’

I counter.

Nope!

You are a lazy fuck.

Hard work builds ‘backbone’ – every successful person I have met has gone thought phases of intense graft.

Is it forever?

No.

But it IS a competent of every successful person I know

Hence this little challenge 🙂

I already have enough on my plate, with family duties, PLAT delivery, Espresso commitments, meetings, Live Streams, webinars, coaching, a 3 a day training split (yeah fuck me right), my own coaching (3 x copy coaching, a funnel building course and mindset work), journaling…

So why the fuck not throw in an arbitrary fucking hard deadline and commitment as well eh?

I work best under pressure, and the above is merely keeping me at ‘lightly stressed’

Lets see how much I can take eh?

After all its not forever – but it IS important as it builds character, resilience, mental toughness and If I do it right (in this instance) I’ll have a book at the end of it.

Not bad actually challenging yourself time to time eh?

Whats your take in it?

Are you a steady plodder?

Or do you like periods of being chill then going ‘balls/ovaries to the wall’

For me its the latter.

But whatever the ‘cut of your job’ is?

Why not pick something challenging, make it harder, give it a deadline (crucial) make a public declaration (also crucial ) and see what you can make happen….

I dare ya 😉
